Samsung building hype around Galaxy Note 5

Though the blog post doesn’t directly mention the Galaxy Note 5, it does indirectly point to the Note lineup a couple of times. Samsung highlights the advantages phablets have over the regular-sized smartphones. For instance, a bigger display is perfect for watching videos. Playing mobile games on a larger screen leads to a more immersive experience.

When you are filming your own photos or videos, a larger screen makes editing a breeze. One of the biggest advantages of phablets is that they fit in more content on the screen. You can see more content on the display, whether you are reading e-books, long articles, or browsing the web. Samsung further highlights that a larger screen allows for more efficient messaging and emailing. You can select the right emoticons effortlessly and bid farewell to frequent typos.

The Korean giant adds that the S Pen stylus of Galaxy Note devices is perfect for business users. It helps them draw diagrams, annotate documents, and write memos easily. And yes, a large screen can be split up into two for multitasking.
