Leak shows Galaxy S6 Edge+ preorders start August 21

Samsung appears to have confirmed, likely by accident, that the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 phone will indeed be joined by a curved model. The company's French site has a pre-order page for the "Galaxy S6 Edge+," as spotted by Galaxyclub.nl. It's shown with a Level Bluetooth headset in a bundle that will be go on order between August 21st and September 3rd. That means there's a strong chance it'll launch on August 21st and hit stores around September 4th. However, the dates could apply strictly to the bundle, and not the phone itself.

We'd take all this with some salt, but the dates do line up closely with earlier rumors about the Galaxy Note 5 -- according to the WSJ, Samsung wanted to release it ahead of Apple's iPhone 6S. The photo on the page matches an earlier leak, but it also looks exactly the same as a regular Galaxy S6 Edge. Other than that, there's not a lot of information about the device. It's rumored to be around 5.5-inches and have the same internals and, of course, curved screen as its smaller brother. You won't have to wait long to find out -- both devices should be revealed at Samsung's Unpacked event on August 13th.

Update: Samsung has pulled down the Galaxy S6 Edge+ page and replaced it with an Unpacked Live event page. That happened rather quickly, so there's a good chance it was more than just a placeholder.
