If you like the Galaxy S6 Edge, but wish it came with a bigger screen, we have some great news. Samsung’s next curved smartphone will apparently pack a 5.5-inch display, at least according to the latest leak from the typically trustworthy Steve Hemmerstoffer, who shares new gadgets via his Twitter account @OnLeaks.

The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (which we previously referred to as the Galaxy S6 Edge) looks almost identical to the current curved handset. The only noticeable difference is the device’s microphone, which appears to have moved from the bottom right by the speaker grill to the bottom left next to the headphone jack.
We’re also expecting the new phone to pack a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. We’ve heard conflicting rumors that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus could measure 5.7-inches across its diagonal. It’s not a huge difference either way, though for phablet fans those 0.2 inches could be a deal breaker.
It’s still unclear when Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. We wouldn’t be surprised to see it announced on stage in September alongside the Galaxy Note 5, though both models might also arrive early. Last we heard the curved handset was set to launch later this month, while the new Note could make its debut a month ahead of schedule in August.
