All signs are pointing to an early release date for the Galaxy Note 5. Now a fresh report out of Korea offers a few more details on the upcoming phablet along with the rumored Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Gear A smartwatch.

According to DDaily, the Galaxy Note 5 will make its official debut at an event in New York on August 13, with the actual release allegedly slated for the end of the month. We’re also expecting the same for the curvy Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, but news that the company’s first round smartwatch could be included as well comes as a surprise.

The Gear A is expected to feature a round display and run a modified version of Tizen OS. It should also support Samsung Pay and pack all the usual fitness tracking sensors. The new report adds that wireless charging will be included too.

As for the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, both devices are rumored to offer 5.7-inch Quad HD displays with fingerprint readers and wireless charging. DDaily Notes that neither phone will feature a removable battery, though microSD support is still a possibility. The Galaxy Note 5 may also get an auto-ejecting S Pen, DDaily said, backing up another recent leak.
