Some of the first images of a giant version of Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge just leaked on Twitter.

Twitter user @OnLeaks (real name Steve Hemmerstoffer) first posted a promotional image of the rumoured Galaxy S6 Plus earlier in June, 9to5Google reports, and has just shared images that look like a case for this new, larger Galaxy model.

The images confirm rumours that the S6 Plus will have a 5.5-inch curved screen, making it about the same size as the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Other than its screen size, it looks like the S6 Plus will essentially be a clone of the S6 Edge:

The images show that the microphone’s camera is placed next to the headphone input and that the LED flash is to the right of the camera.

Here is the first promotional image Hemmerstoffer shared, confirming the size of the S6 Plus screen:

Samsung has also submitted a new trademark filing to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a “S6 Edge Plus,” according to 9to5Google, which suggests that the new, larger model might really be on the way.
