The official release of Samsung’s next-gen flagship Galaxy Note 5 is just a few months away. The phablet is expected to be unveiled at the IFA event in September. While we have already seen a lot of rumors about the Galaxy Note 5, the ever reliable French website NoWhereElse.fr has obtained leaked images of the device, revealing its specs and features.
Galaxy Note 5 borrows a lot from the Galaxy S6
The French publication had accurately revealed the designs of both iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 ahead of their launch. The leaked images suggest that the Note 5 will feature almost all the design changes introduced with the Galaxy S6. It will have an aluminum frame and glass back, along with an improved fingerprint sensor. The leaked images highlight an armored case that conceals its precise design.
If you look closely, you can see an S Pen stylus housing at the bottom, alongside a loudspeaker. The previous Galaxy Note phablets featured loudspeaker on the back. You can also see a headphone jack and a charging slot. The Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to sport a USB Type-C post. A glass back panel means users will be deprived of the removable battery and expandable storage.
Galaxy Note 5 to have a huge battery
The Galaxy Note 5’s front looks pretty much like the Galaxy S6 with slim bezels, a light sensor, the home and capacitive buttons. The French publication reports that the Note 5 will have a huge 4,100mAh battery compared to 3,220mAh in its predecessor. That would make a large number of potential buyers happy. Other features include a 16-megapixel camera, 5.9-inch Super AMOLED 2K display, 3GB RAM and Android Lollipop.
The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7422 all-in-one processor that combines RAM, CPU, GPU, memory and storage on a single chip. Last week, reports coming out of China claimed that, unlike last year, Samsung will not release an edge variant of the Galaxy Note 5. Instead, the Korean company will go for a different device called Galaxy S6 Plus with the dual-edge display.
