It hasn’t leaked anything about the next Galaxy, but talks about what the phone’s USPs (unique selling points) will be. Samsung’s website for the Philippines has made a page live where it asks users to pre-reg for the Next Galaxy. The pre-registration page itself asking “What are you looking for in your Next Galaxy”.
