We’ve been expecting Samsung to announce two new smartphones — the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ — at its August 13 event in New York City, but it appears the South Korean company also has a third device up its sleeve.

In a new teaser image outed today, a larger, tablet-like device sits beneath what is clearly the stunning new Note 5.

The image above shows the Galaxy S6 edge+ atop the Galaxy Note 5 — both of which are expected to carry 5.7-inch displays — then a larger device that sports a similar design beneath them both.

The image is accompanied by a countdown timer on Samsung’s website, along with a slogan that reads, “We were the first to make them BIG. Now we’re making BIG even BETTER.”

The third device doesn’t look that much bigger than the Note 5, so it may well be a new 7- to 8-inch device. Of course, it could be the new Galaxy Tab S2, which is yet to make its debut in the U.S. That would explain why the third device hasn’t leaked out yet, while the other two have — countless times.

Either way, Samsung’s August 13 event is shaping up to be a big one, and we can’t wait!
