We’re only a few days away removed from Samsung’s 2015 Unpacked event in New York (and its Philippine version on August 14), and at this point, as is the case every year, we know almost everything about the company’s next flagbearer — or should I say “flagbearers”? Under the bright lights of the Big Apple, Samsung is all but sure to announce the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus — the name implies it’s supposed to be the bigger brother of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

There’s also a strong possibility that a curved-edge variant of the Galaxy Tab will be joining the two. And while a curved slate could be inconvenient to use, let alone hold for extended periods, the idea of a larger Galaxy S6 Edge sounds appealing. The Galaxy Note line, on the other hand, has won over pundits and consumers alike since its debut. Judging from the leaks, the Galaxy Note 5, with its reportedly Galaxy S6-inspired looks, should continue to impress.

The latest iteration of Samsung’s S Pen-toting flagship will come with a 5.7-inch 1,440 x 2,560 Super AMOLED display, an octa-core processor (likely an Exynos 7422 SoC) backed by 4GB of RAM, and 16- and 5-megapixel rear and selfie cameras. It will support LTE and wireless charging, similar to its predecessor. As for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, its specs are expected to be in line with the S6 Edge’s internals, with the exception of a bump in RAM (4GB).
