Barely a week goes by when we don’t get another piece of the puzzle to add to the ever-clearer image of what Samsung’s going to announce in two weeks time. We’ve seen leaked schematics, unofficial 3D renders and photos as well as the usual rumors on release date and specifications. Now, what looks like an official press render has leaked out courtesy of Evan Blass on Twitter.

Samsung has officially announced it will be holding a press event on August 13, and will almost certainly use that platform to get a jump on IFA and Apple by announcing its next flagship phablets. While the Galaxy Note 5 is a clear descendant of the Note series, albeit with Galaxy design influences, the Galaxy S6 Edge plus is just a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Although these renders don’t give us much more than we’ve seen previously, they do help reaffirm the rumors we’ve heard. One thing that’s interesting is the date displayed on the lock screen. Under the clock you can clearly see Fri, 21 August. To me this seems a sly confirmation of the release date rumors we’ve already heard.

You can be sure we’ll be bringing you full coverage of Samsung’s event when it kicks off on August 13, so be sure to stay tuned. It’ll be interesting to see what Sammy brings to the table. Hopefully more than just a physical redesign.
