In late April, we learned that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and its dual-edge variant are internally code-named Project Noble and Project Zen respectively. Now the Edge variant of Note 5 has been spotted on benchmarking platform HTML5test, which scores web browsers based on their ability to load HTML5 elements.
Galaxy Note 5 already in testing phase
The leaked HTML5 test was performed on a Samsung browser 3.2 on Samsung ZenZero smartphone running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Project Zen is the internal name of Edge version of the Galaxy Note 5. So, ZenZero could be a prototype of Note 5 Edge. The browser scored 503 on the test. That’s pretty impressive. By comparison, Nexus 5 with Chrome 42 and Android 5.1.1 scored 515 points.

The interesting thing is that, as this test suggests, the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 5 Edge are already in the testing phase. Earlier this year, Roh Tae-moon, EVP of Samsung’s product strategy team, offered hint that the Note 5 may have a dual-edge display. However, HTML5 website notes that the browser score it showed was from unconfirmed test results.
Galaxy Note 5 to have an all-in-one chip
A few days ago, SamMobile reported that the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 5 Edge will be two very different phones, unlike last year’s Note 4 and Note Edge where the only major difference was Edge display. The Galaxy Note 5 will feature a 2K or 4K Super AMOLED display and Exynos 7422 processor. The Samsung-made Exynos 7422 will be an all-in-one chipset that will combine CPU, GPU, RAM, storage and modem on a single chip. Samsung ditched Qualcomm’s Snapdragon in favor of its in-house Exynos 7420 in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
The Edge version of Note 5 will be more like a mid-range device. Sources told SamMobile that the Note 5 Edge will feature a 5.4- or 5.5-inch dual-edge display, a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 16-megapixel main camera, 8MP front camera, and 16GB internal storage. It will also come with an S Pen stylus. Both the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 5 Edge are expected to be unveiled at the annual IFA event in September.
