The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are still technically just rumored devices, but Samsung’s upcoming phablets are getting closer each day. Now a fresh leak reveals what could be accurate case designs for both of the upcoming smartphones.
The images were sent to PhoneArena by Mobile Direct, a Romanian retailer with a history of leaking high-end smartphones. The company revealed a dummy iPhone 5 model in 2012 that turned out to be pretty accurate. It did the same for the iPhone 6 last year.
The newly leaked photos don’t reveal much, but they do clear up a few design details. Based on the rear cutout on both cases, it looks like the flash module will be located to the side of the camera on the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+, rather than below the lens. The speaker for the new Note has also moved to the bottom edge.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard similar claims about the new phones. French leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer even chimed in on Twitter to back up these images with one of his own.

The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be Samsung’s most powerful phone ever, packing a 5.98-inch Quad HD display, a 4100mAh battery, a new Exynos 7422 chip and USB-C support. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is expected to feature a smaller 5.5-inch screen along with a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
At this point we’re still counting on Samsung to reveal both phones in September at the IFA expo. It’s possible the company could surprise us with an early announcement, but that’s looking less likely each day.
