Samsung has officially announced that it will hold its Unpacked event on August 13th in New York City. We knew this day was coming, as August 12th was rumored heavily, but Samsung stayed quiet. Not much other information has been given, but we all know what is coming from Samsung this time around.
It is widely reported and expected that Samsung will debut two devices, the next device in the very popular Note series, the Galaxy Note 5, and the big brother to the Galaxy S6 edge, the Galaxy S6 edge+. This comes ahead of Samsung’s normal launch at the IFA trade show, but it assumed they want to beat the next iPhone out of the gate.
Both devices are expected to come with 4 GB of RAM and base storage started at 32 GB. They will resemble the S6/S6 edge duo with a metal frame flanked by glass on either sides. The Note 5 will include the all-new Exynos 7422 processor and the S-Pen whereas the S6 edge+ will have the older Exynos 7420 processor with no S-Pen.
Now that we have our hands on a solid date for the debut of the next two Samsung devices, we’ll just have to wait on the release date. That will most likely come at the Unpacked event. As of now, both devices are rumored to be released on August 21st, with the Note 5 being released in select markets and the S6 edge+ being released globally.
