As the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 approaches, the rumor mill is heating up, busily churning out speculations. This time we have a refresh of the rumor about the phablet having 4 gigabytes of RAM and a possible confirmation from Samsung itself that there will be a curved screen model of it.
Did Samsung leak info about the Galaxy Note 5?
GSM Arena reports that Samsung appears to have “accidentally” (or maybe on purpose) leaked a few details about the Galaxy Note 5 on its FAQ page. The page is about the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, but it also mentions two other model numbers: the n920f and n925. According to GSM Arena, these model numbers could be a reference to the Note 5 and its curved screen counterpart. The existed of the curved screen variant, by the way, remains up for debate.
The FAQ page in question focuses on the camera, which it states has optical image stabilization that causes the floating lens effect. The mention of the other two models suggests that the Note 5 will have the same camera as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.
Other rumors about the Galaxy Note 5
In terms of specs, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to have four gigabytes of LPDDR4 RAM. This rumor has been going around for a while, and now SamMobile has supposedly confirmed it. It would be a big step for Samsung, as not many handsets have moved into the four-gigabyte range yet.
The Galaxy Note 5 is also expected to have a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD screen and an octa-core 64-bit Exynos 7422 system-on-a-chip. The chip is expected to feature built-in cellular models as well. It’s also been reported that the phone will have a 16-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization and a 5-inch front-facing camera. The battery is expected to be 4,100 mAH in size.
Up for debate is whether or not the phablet will sport a slot for a microSD card.
