The recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus are reportedly the fastest smartphones in the market and are set to compete with the release of the iPhones this coming September.

Forbes reported that these two phones have top-of-the-line features which are distinct in the mobile market like "the best screen technology, the most advanced camera for high quality photos and videos, the latest fast wireless and wired charging, and an incredibly powerful processor."

With 4GB of RAM, users can make their mobile experience better and faster with multitasking possible in these new introductions.

Set to be available in retail stores come August 21, the Note 5 will have a starting price of $739.99 for the 32GB variant while Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is pegged at $814.99.

In a review, Sydney Morning Herald explained that the phablet felt "solid and very very light."

"Nothing felt radically new, but nothing stuck out as weird or plasticy either," the review said.

For its performance, Sydney Morning Herald said the applications and tasks in the phone were also fast improving the users' Android experience.

"They say the cameras - a 16MP f1.9 rear; 5MP f.19 front - open in 0.7 seconds, which seems about right. It certainly opened the camera faster than my iPhone 6 did," the review added.

Other features included in the Note 5 are the SideSync productivity tool and refined S Pen capabilities.

As for the S6 Edge, the device reportedly had very useful edges like its two low-power functions.

"One is a 'night clock' that simply displays the time, turning your phone into a proper nightstand clock, and the other is a very low brightness 'edge menu' which you can activate without turning the phone's main screen on," the Sydney Morning Herald said.

The Forbes report added that the S6 Edge Plus' curved screen gave a better multimedia experience to users.

NDTV, however, said that fans may be disappointed since Samsung will not release 128GB variants of the new devices.

It added that this could have been scrapped because of the "low demand of the highest-priced variants."

It also explained that the 128GB version was originally planned to be released but the idea was pulled out for sales reasons.

Aside from the two devices, Samsung also launched a number of accessories for Samsung gadgets like the clear view cover, wireless charger, level headphones, battery packs and new keyboard covers.

It is just a few more days before the public will be able to experience the offerings of these powerful Samsung smartphones.
