Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015: What to expect

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked is being held today at simultaneous events in London and New York. As one of Samsung’s biggest annual events, we’re expecting to see the launch of the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and possibly a new tablet. Here’s what’s in store later today.

Based on what we know so far, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to look like a large Galaxy S6 – that is, a slim, metal phablet. In a departure from the previous devices in the series, this time we do not expect a removable battery or expandable storage, but perhaps an auto-ejecting stylus and new Air Command options could make up for it.

The S6 Edge+ is tipped to be, you guessed it, a larger Galaxy S6 Edge. Unlike the Note 5, this doesn’t appear to be coming with a stylus, instead it looks basically like a big Galaxy S6 Edge, with perhaps a few software tweaks. 

One rumored improvement to the internal specs is the battery life, which may be slightly boosted to 3,000 mAh. Don’t expect any huge improvements over the standard Galaxy S6 Edge, though.

Is Samsung’s first curved-screen tablet on the way also? Based on a quickly-pulled Samsung Philippines promo image, yes. The image above shows three silhouetted devices for unpacked, two of roughly the same size, believed to be the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, and one noticeably larger device beneath.

Samsung will stream a live presentation of the event from its official website at 11:00AM EDT. Come to AndroidPIT later for our preliminary Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ reviews, along with some early comparisons.
