Samsung Galaxy Unpacked events are usually a glamorous affair, and the South Korean manufacturer's 2015 track record is pretty strong, having debuted the Galaxy S6 (review) and Galaxy S6 edge (review) at MWC 2015 earlier in the year. With 2015 just over the halfway mark, now it's time for another Galaxy Unpacked event, and Samsung has dated it for 13 August.

So, who will be in attendance? Or rather, what will be? With Samsung's flagship refreshes occurring in metronomic fashion, many expect a new phablet to debut in the form of the Galaxy Note 5. Added to this, there might be a second iteration of the Galaxy Note Edge (review), which may in all likeliness sport two edges instead of just one.

Speaking about edges, if recent leaks are to be believed, then the Galaxy S6 edge may be receiving a bigger brother, with the yet-to-be officially named Galaxy S6 edge Plus. As a result, many think that the aforementioned edge Plus will essentially be taking the place of the Note Edge's successor.

While Samsung and Apple still duke it out for smartphone, and now phablet, superiority, The Verge believes that this event is the South Korean manufacturer's attempt at getting an early step on its Cupertino-based rival, which too, will have an unveiling event in the next few weeks.

For now though, most of the world's tech eyes will be fully focused on the Lincoln Centre in New York come 13 August. You can tune into the livestream via YouTube, or follow @TechSmartMag, as we'll be live tweeting on the event.
