Wall Street Journal says Samsung will announce Galaxy S6 edge+ on August 13th, possibly a new smartwatch

Samsung’s next big event will happen in New York City on August 13th and it’s expected the Galaxy Note 5 will be unveiled.

The S Pen equipped smartphone has already been leaked online multiple times. It’s expected to sport a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Samsung’s Exynos 7422 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization.

Another device that is apparently set to make an appearance at the event is the Galaxy S6 edge+, which is a follow-up to the popular curved Galaxy S6 edge. Citing “people familiar with the matter”, The Wall Street Journal says Samsung will very likely announce the S6 edge+ at the same media event.

The WSJ goes on to note, “Samsung is planning to introduce a larger version of its flagship Galaxy S6 Edge curved smartphone at a closely watched event on Aug. 13 at New York’s Lincoln Center… The move suggests a continued willingness at Samsung to tweak its product releases to try to maintain consumer interest in its mobile products, which have struggled to stand out amid a sea of increasingly similar offerings from competitors.”


The Galaxy S6 edge+ is rumoured to have a 5.7-inch display, an Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 16MP camera.

Lastly, the WSJ hints that Samsung might take the opportunity to show off its latest smartwatch, which could be the upcoming Gear A, but “a final decision still hasn’t been made,” says the publication.
