Are these Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus?

Samsung is set to unveil the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 on August 13, and some say that in this event the company will also unveil a larger variant of the popular GS6 Edge (which will be called, unimaginatively, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus).

SamMobile posted the leaked image below, which supposedly shows the two new upcoming phones. The Note 5 (on the left) will have a 5.66" QHD (2560x1440) Super AMOLED display - which is actually a bit of a disappointment as it seems to be the exact same display used in the Galaxy Note 4. Other Note 5 features (according to this leak) include an Octa-core Exynos 7420 CPU, 4GB of RAM, Android 5.1.1 and a 16 mp camera (sadly - no micro SD slot).

SamMobile does not have any technical information regarding the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Actually it seems a bit strange for Samsung to call this phone in that name - it would have made more sense to call it the Galaxy Note 5 Edge. Maybe they didn't want to do that because the last generation Note 4 Edge was actually called the Note Edge, without the 4, so it would have been confusing.

I think the reason it called Galaxy S6 Edge+ and not Note 5 Edge is because it doesn't have S-Pen, hence naming referral to S6 series instead of Note series...


Maybe you're right. But then again, it's strange that there is no new S-Pen equipped phone with a curved edge... or maybe there will be? We'll know next week...
