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:
