Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s Galaxy Note 4 is still new on the market. But the Korean electronics giant has already been drawing plans for its successor, the Galaxy Note 5. Concept designers aren’t far behind as we have started to see a growing number of concept renderings of Samsung’s next flagship phablet.
Galaxy Note 5 with 6-inch 4K display
The latest Galaxy Note 5 concept design comes from Sahil Arora (via TheGalaxyNote5.com). The rendering has a spectacular lineup of possible specs and features. The concept reminds you of the old Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S2. The Galaxy Note 5 concept has razor-thin bezels and extremely thin design. Arora says the device will sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 81x or a Dodeca-core Exynos 7xxx processor.
The rendering shows the Galaxy Note 5 with 6.-inch Super AMOLED display with 4K technology (3840 x 2160 resolution). It gives the phone a pixel density of 650ppi. It will have 4GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to feature 21-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It will have a battery between 3400 and 3900mAh.
You can sense some Galaxy Note 5 innovations in Note 4
We also expect to see significant improvements in the S Pen stylus. Other expected features include Iris eye scanner technology, an improve fingerprint scanner, and four-colored LED notifications light. In an interview with CNet, Samsung’s EVP for product strategy and R&D, Tae Moon Roh, said that the Galaxy Note 5 will have innovative features to “suit your needs.” Moon Roh declined to reveal any major details of the phone.
He said that we could “sense” some of those innovations in the Galaxy Note 4. These innovations will be “strengthened and solidified” in the next iterations. Moon Roh said the smartphone cameras should work like the human eye. Cameras should delete the shadowing effect and provide good pictures even in low lighting.
