According to a report by Korean outlet The Korea Times, Samsung is set to make quite a few splashes at this year’s IFA consumer electronics trade show by announcing two versions of the Galaxy Note 4, as well as the company’s often-rumored competitor to Google Glass.

An unnamed executive at an unnamed local Samsung partner revealed that the South Korean company will unveil two versions of its phablet flagship: one with a curved OLED display for “niche markets,” and another with a more conventional, flat OLED display for mass marketing. One of the rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 4 is the presence of a 5.7-inch 1440p curved display. Other rumors include a Snapdragon quad-core 805 processor matched up with 4GB of RAM, 4K video recording capabilities and a waterproof exterior.

As for Samsung’s Google Glass competitor, the same executive said that Samsung will reveal it at the same event. This lends credence to a previous rumor that claims the same thing. According to the rumor, it will be powered by Samsung’s Tizen operating system rather than Google’s Android. No other specs for Samsung’s rumored wearable have been revealed.

IFA will take place in Berlin September 5-10.
