Earlier this month, it was revealed that Samsung would launch the Galaxy Note 5 and a larger variant of the Galaxy S6 edge — dubbed the S6 edge+ — ahead of schedule, with both handsets getting announced in August. Korean news outlet Business Korea has corroborated the timeline, stating that Samsung will hold an event in New York on August 13 to unveil the handsets.

That date isn't far off from what was mentioned in an earlier report, and at this stage it is looking more and more likely that we'll indeed see the phones making their debut in under a month's time.

To add more fuel to the fire, a phone matching the model number of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920F) was spotted entering India for R&D purposes by local import export website Zauba. Samsung has three R&D centers in India that work on smartphone and SoC development, and it is likely that the manufacturer has sent prototype units to India for testing ahead of its launch next month.
