New Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event officially confirmed for August 13: S6 Edge Plus and Note 5 likely to be announced then

Those who are familiar with Samsung's mobile strategy know that the company likes to announce important devices during events called Galaxy Unpacked. Well, Samsung has just confirmed that a new Unpacked event will take place on August 13 in New York City.

While Samsung doesn't say exactly what it's going to show us on that day, rumors have it that August 13 will be the announcement date of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

The simple image that Samsung is using as an invitation to the event - seen above - suggests that we're going to see a handset with a curved display (obviously, this should be the S6 Edge Plus). The image's geometry reminds us of the teaser photos that the company used earlier this year before officially unveiling the Galaxy S6 edge.

Both the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 are expected to feature 5.7-inch displays with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), 16 MP rear cameras, 4 GB of RAM, and Exynos 7420 processors. Only the S6 Edge Plus will sport a curved screen, while the Note 5 should have the advantage of featuring an S Pen stylus.

Like many other announcements lately, the new Galaxy Unpacked event is going to be livestreamed, so anyone will be able to see what Samsung is announcing in real time.

Photos allegedly showing the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 have already been spotted on the web. In case you didn't get the chance to see them, here they are:

Buy one or don't. Either way, shut up about it. Every Galaxy article though? EVERY single article? You have perfected the art of complaining, I'll give you that. Nobody is more dedicated. Just buy a One Plus 2 or G4 and get off the internet for a few days. Get some sunlight and company. I promise it's more fun than stalking phone arena articles about Samsung or whoever the flavour of the month is for your wrath.

No Because on every G4 article all he says is "NO FINGERPRINT SCANNER = FAIL" Maybe we should just kill him

NAH. The G4 doesnt have a fingerprint scanner or top specs. I'll keep bashing Samsung every chance I get until they wise up. EVERY intelligent phone buyer agrees with me. Only idiots allow themselves to be raped with non-removable batteries and no SD

You honestly keep more than 64gb or 128gb on your phone? Really?

I do, qwerty is a troll but sadly he is right. Sd function is very important to many like me. I couldn't care less about battery tho. If it has good SoT it's fine to me. But sd is a must. Especially on vacations when I swap them to watch movies and series on my sd card filled with them or swap them with sd cards special for vacation pictures and movies :) But I almost bought the 128gb s6 edge today untill I read about the moto X xD

Over 90% of the market is a fail with those missing features.

on a second thought, sammy doesnt provide sd cards as they may slow down the ufs 2.0 i think !! how card could it be for a company like samsung to develop a sd card which will be fast enough for ufs 2.0 also. i think, once samusng develops that sd will provide sd card slot on its phones again.

Please be trolling and release the Note 5 with USB-C. I decided to get Jump on Demand and get an S6 to hold me over and with all of the issues I'm experiencing with it and the pictures showing no USB-C I'm not sure I'm gonna go with the 5 or even Samsung anymore. It really shows that Samsung wasn't pushing this phone to be as future-proof as the last 4 Notes.

It would be weird if they decided not to, considering they co developed USB C with Apple, Google and Microsoft among others in the first place. But who knows? Maybe they were unable to get it ready in time for whatever reason. Sorry you've been having problems with your S6 by the way.

Other companies have seemed to get it on their devices months ago so I honestly don't believe that. I really think that Samsung is saving it for the S7 so they have something extra to offer.

Samsung actually had zero contributors to the USB Type C spec, and the same goes for Microsoft. Google had 10 engineers on the project and Apple had the largest number of contributors.

I put that poorly. Intel had all the lead contributors, even if Apple had the most. It's definitely not just Apple's baby, nor is it any of the 96 named contributors. It was a team effort, including, I'm sure, 100s of support engineers who weren't named.

The next time the CEO comes out to denounce a major rumour, I will take it with a grain of salt.

Fellas! You guy notice how these leaks are never wrong now? The phones they've been showing as the N5, and Edge plus are

10. TerryTerius unregistered

True. At least they rarely are when we get this close to the launch date. But I'm itching to get that S6 Edge plus, if for no other reason than that improved battery life and extra screen real estate over the regular edge. Those are my only complaints. 5.5 - 5.7 is my butter zone.
