Verizon Wireless is reportedly gearing up to expand its portfolio, launching the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge this week and the Nexus 6 in mid-February.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge made its debut a while back as a limited-edition device, sporting an intriguing display with a curved side and top-notch specs all around. The handset has been available in the U.S. for quite some time now, and it's now reportedly ready to hit Verizon's network this Thursday, Jan. 8.

Verizon already has some neat devices in its lineup, including the exclusive Motorola Droid series, but many international products don't make it on its network. That's because Verizon is a CDMA carrier, and most phones designed for the global market rely on GSM technology.

Nevertheless, Phandroid has now received a leaked screen capture allegedly from Verizon, indicating that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will join Big Red's lineup on Jan. 8. The source of this leak has reportedly provided accurate information on several occasions in the past, the publication notes.

According to the tipster, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will be available for $399 when agreeing to sign a two-year contract with the carrier, or $33.32 per month with a Verizon Edge installment plan. Interested customers will also be able to get the Galaxy Note Edge for $799 off-contract from Verizon.

In addition to the Galaxy Note Edge, however, the tipster also claims that Verizon will finally be launching the Google Nexus 6 smartphone next month. The Motorola-made Nexus 6 launched back in October and has since made its way to all major carriers in the U.S., except Verizon Wireless. The handset can be used on Verizon's network if purchased unlocked, but no subsidized options are available with Big Red just yet.

Back when the Nexus 6 made its official debut, Verizon said that it will carry the smartphone as well. Since then, however, Big Red has offered no other information regarding the Nexus 6 launch on its network, and even now it's all just speculation.

If the tipster turns out to be accurate, Verizon will launch the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge on Jan. 8, and finally add the Nexus 6 to its lineup sometime in mid-February. On the other hand, nothing is official at this point, hence a healthy dose of skepticism is advised. Stay tuned for more information as soon as it becomes available.
