Samsung is set to announce its Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus on August 13th, but we're getting a pretty good look at the device two weeks ahead of time. Prolific phone leaker Evan Blass has released what's said to be official press renders of both new devices. For good measure, he's released a set of specifications for the Note 5 as well.
This isn't the first time we've seen these two heavily rumored devices, but it's certainly our best look yet. The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus looks exactly like what its name suggests — it's a bigger S6 Edge. The Note 5, meanwhile, looks like it shares a similar the Galaxy S6's handsome metal-and-glass design, though it has slightly sharper corners from the looks of it.
According to Evan Blass, the Note 5 will have a 5.66-inch, 2560 x 1440 display, like its predecessor. Its innards are an upgrade from the Galaxy S6, however, with a beefy octa-core Exynos 7420 chip, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It will also have a 16-megapixel rear camera paired with a 5-megapixel front shooter, according to the leak. That new metal-and-glass design does come with a loss, however: the removable back and the microSD card slot on the Note 4 are said to be missing this time around.
