Samsung has recently stated on Twitter that on August 13 of this year, they will launching the next Galaxy device. This has to mean the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge plus could be launched alongside it. The launch of these two flagships has been rescheduled to be earlier apparently, to combat their arch rival’s- Apple-unveiling of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (guess they stole ‘Plus’ from each other). If you are anything like me and can’t wait for the launch then don’t worry, the leaks and rumor roundups are here!
The Note 5 is rumored to have some beastly specs including a 5.7 inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 4 GB RAM, an Exynos 7420 and a whopping 4100 mAh battery. Other rumors suggest a 5.9 inch 4K display (slight overkill), an Octa- core 64 bit Samsung Exynos 7422 processor, a 16 MP camera, 4100 mAh and USB type C.
As the leaks below show the design is very similar to that of the Galaxy S6, with metal and glass covering the phone. This is a major upgrade from the Note 4 as it had metal sides, but the backing was plastic. If these leaks are real and true then like the S6, the Note 5 will not have a removable back cover, meaning a sealed battery.
Leak of the back of the Note 5
As shown in the pictures above, the sides of the Note 5 seem to curve upwards, towards the screen. This gives the back of the device the same look as the Galaxy S6 Edge’s front, where the edge of the screen curves. This means the Note 5 will feel like the S6 edge except backwards.
The headphone jack has also changed its place from the previous Note and now has found itself on the bottom of the phone, instead the top like the Note 4. In short, the Note 5 is everything a Galaxy S6 is except bigger, that also includes the internals. This may be one of the largest phablets out there and hopefully Samsung makes it the best too. This phablet is not cheap though and is rumored to be about 550-600 pounds which is $850- $930 dollars off contract!
