We’ve seen the Galaxy S6 Edge+ countless times in recent weeks, and now it seems Samsung has given up on keeping it a secret ahead of its August 13 unveiling. The device was today leaked on the official website for Samsung France, which confirmed the handset’s pre-order date.

Samsung’s graphic, which promotes a launch offer that includes 3 months of Google Play Music and a set of On Level headphones, confirms the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (not Galaxy S6 Edge Plus) naming scheme, and its pre-order date of August 21.

That means fans will have to wait just a little over one week to pre-order Samsung’s latest phablet following its big debut in New York City this Thursday. What we still don’t know at this point is how much the device will cost, but it might just be a little less than you might think.

Samsung recently had to adjust its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge pricing in an effort to boost sales, so it would probably make sense (though don’t count on it!), to make the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 that launches alongside it a little more affordable than originally planned.

Speaking of the Note 5, it’s worth noting that this didn’t appear on Samsung France’s website with the S6 Edge+. That could be because this was an accidental leak, or it could confirm rumors that several European markets will miss out on the device at launch.
