Samsung is not doing as well as it hoped with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

According to the company's second-quarter earnings report, their profit fell seven percent from last year.

Samsung recorded an improvement from quarter to quarter. But according to The Verge, the flagship Galazy S6 and S6 Edge only have "quite marginal" impacts, as shown by their low shipments and increased spending.

Bloomberg Business reported that Samsung misread the demands for the S6 models in April. With its failure to produce enough three-sided screens came one of the biggest shares decline in four months.

Dongbu Securities Co. Analyst Yoo Eui Hyung said, "Poor sales of S6 only proved that it can't beat Apple in brand loyalty among users and just ended up being one of the many Androids. The price cuts may increase sales, but I highly doubt it could promise bigger profit growth."

To keep sales momentum, Samsung plans on adjusting the price of their latest flagship phones. At the same time, it plans to introduce high end models like the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

The S6 Edge Plus is expected to be revealed at Samsung's event on August 13.

However, a leak reported by Techno Buffalo already showed that there is going to be one major disappointment for fans: it appears as though the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will be sporting the same camera as the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

Leaked photos showed that the S6 Edge Plus will sport 16-megapixel rear camera, with what seems to be the same lens found on the regular S6 Edge.

The outlet reported that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will be similar to the regular Edge, but with a screen boost from 5.1 inches to 5.7.

Other than that, though, it is expected that the Edge Plus will feature similar hardware, although it may have a Snapdragon 808 Processor instead of the S6 Edge's Samsung Exynos.

Things will have to get worse before it gets better for Samsung, though.

Vice President of Mobile Communications Park Jin-Young told Bloomberg during a conference call, "In order to drive up the shipment, we will actively respond to the market, which could have a negative impact on our average sales price. There's a possibility that the third-quarter sales price could slightly drop."

The Verge reported that Samsung continues its struggle against Apple Inc. when it comes to the high-end market, and the S6 and S6 Edge has been proof of that.

While the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge haven't been major hits, do you think the Galazy S6 Edge Plus could increase company's sales?
