We have seen a lot of leaks and rumors about Samsung’s upcoming phablet, likely to be called the Galaxy Note 5. Going by the Korean company’s annual upgrade cycle, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to arrive in September this year. Meanwhile, a designer has come up with a stunning concept of what the Note 5 should look like.
Samsung may launch two version of the Galaxy Note 5
Designer ISamsungGalaxyNote5 imagines the next Galaxy Note with an edge-to-edge display without any curves. Roh Tae-moon, EVP of Samsung’s product strategy team, had said last month that the upcoming Note may feature a dual-edge display. The Korean company is expected to launch two versions of the Note 5: one with standard display and another featuring dual-edge screen.
ISamsungGalaxyNote5 says the device will likely feature 4GB RAM, and 32/64GB of internal storage options with a microSD slot. The rendering has a 6-inch 4K resolution Super AMOLED display, 20-megapixel main camera and 7MP front-facing camera. The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 81X processor or Exynos True eight-core chipset.
Galaxy Note 5 to cost more than $850
The concept has a super fast charging technology that can charge 40% battery in 15 minutes and an advanced fingerprint sensor. ISamsungGalaxyNote5 says the Galaxy Note 5 will cost anywhere between $850 and $1,000. The concept looks stunning, but the back panel feels like it was copy/pasted from some other device.
The side bezels are almost non-existent. The top and bottom bezels have also got smaller. There is a physical Home button along with capacitive Recents and Back buttons. The device imagined in this concept appears to be 5 or 6mm thick and comes in a new metal frame design. The Galaxy Note 5 will reportedly focus on virtual reality. The team behind the Oculus Rift VR have already said that the Note 5 will have specific functionality to make it a companion to the virtual reality headset.
