Leaked image shows Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge Plus

A purportedly leaked press image shows a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge and a refreshed Galaxy Note.

We might be getting our first peek at Samsung’s next Galaxy Note and Galaxy S Edge smartphones.

The above rendering comes via the Twitter account @evleaks, and it shows what may be press renderings of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Assuming the image is legit the new phones aren’t a huge departure design-wise from Samsung’s current models, though Ubergizmo points out that the bezel appears thinner on the Note 5 than that of the Note 4.

Although we can’t say for sure that the rendering is real, Evan Blass—the journalist behind @evleaks—has a sterling track record when it comes to phone rumors and scoops, and the phones depicted are in line with other tidbits we’ve recently learned.

Recent rumors suggest that the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will both have 5.7-inch, 2560 x 1440-pixels AMOLED displays. Size-wise, that’s a huge step up (no pun intended) from the Galaxy S6 Edge, which features a 5.1-inch display, but it’s the same screen resolution as the existing model. (The screen size is no different than that on the Note 4, however.)

We likely won’t have to wait too long to see whether or not the leaked rendering is real: Just last week, Samsung sent out invitations to its 2015 Samsung Unpacked event, which will take place in New York City on August 13th. The company isn’t saying what it plans to announce at the event, but it probably isn’t unreasonable to expect to see the Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus debut then. We’ll know for sure soon enough.
