Samsung wasn’t the first company to launch a smartphone with a supersized screen, but it would be hard to argue that the South Korean smartphone company didn’t popularize the category. Samsung’s Galaxy Note line brought phablets to the mainstream, and phones that would have once been considered massive are now the norm.
Interestingly though, the sleekest and most exciting phablet Samsung has ever made seemingly isn’t a member of the popular Note family. Instead, it looks like Samsung is about to supersize its best-ever flagship phone — but as hot as the new model is shaping up to be, a new leak also suggests it’s going to be huge.
According to numerous reports, Samsung is getting ready to debut a new smartphone called either the Galaxy S6 Plus or the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. The latter would be a mouthful, but it may be fitting because the phone looks like it will indeed be a pocketful.
A new leak seemingly reveals the design and size of Samsung’s upcoming phablet. A mold of the phone was reportedly made using actual schematics from Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which is a practise we saw popularized ahead of Apple’s iPhone 6 debut.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 isn’t considered a phablet, but it’s definitely a large smartphone. And in these leaked images shared by Twitter user @OnLeaks, we can see that the supposed S6 Edge Plus dummy is far taller and wider than the standard S6.
Photos of this unreleased smartphone have leaked before, but we’ve never seen it lined up next to a current S6.
A few of the leaked shots can be seen below, and if you’re into tight hipster jeans with shallow pockets, this upcoming new model from Samsung almost certainly shouldn’t be in the running to be your next smartphone.
