Samsung to host Unpacked event on August 13th

Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus likely attendees

Samsung today officially announced its next major product launch event, which will take place in New York on August 13th. Galaxy Unpacked 2015 will be at 11:00AM ET on that date, and will likely include the announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, the details of which have leaked extensively over the past few weeks.

Announcing the next generation of its successful Note series in August is a change of approach for Samsung, which has traditionally launched Note devices in early September, with retail availability occurring a few weeks later. The company has struggled to compete with Apple's new iPhones in recent quarters, and this new strategy appears to be an obvious attempt to get out ahead of the next iPhone launch, which is sure to happen in early September.

We'll be at the Galaxy Unpacked event and will report anything and everything that Samsung brings to the table, so get ready.
