Galaxy Note 5 Edge To Come Without S Pen Stylus

Adding to the recent rumors and leaks about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 5 and its dual-edge sibling, a new report from SamMobile reveals some strange details. Sources familiar with the matter told the publication that Samsung has internally renamed Project Zen as Project Zero 2 (SM-G928). The Korean electronics giant had internally codenamed the Galaxy Note 5 as Project Noble and the dual-edge version as Project Zen.

Note 5 Edge design to be similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge?

Sources said that Project Zen or Zero 2 will be launched without S Pen stylus. That’s quite surprising because stylus has been one of the biggest highlights of Galaxy Note series. Without an S Pen, the Note 5 Edge would be more like the recently launched Galaxy S6 Edge. It is further confirmed by the fact that Galaxy S6 was internally known as Project Zero.

Galaxy Note 5 and the dual-edge variant are expected to be announced at the annual IFA event in September. A few days ago, there were rumors that the Note 5 would arrive in July. But Samsung’s mobile chief JK Shin rubbished those rumors. The devices will come with regular accessories such as the S View case and Clear View cover. There will also be a Keyboard Cover for these devices. The Keyboard Cover maybe a detachable keyboard case.

Galaxy Note 5 Edge to be a mid-range phone

Earlier this month, SamMobile had reported that the Galaxy Note 5 or Project Noble will feature a 2K or 4K Super AMOLED Display. The device will run an all-in-one Exynos 7422 processor that combines CPU, RAM, GPU, modem and storage all in a single chip. The standard Note 5 is expected to come with S Pen Stylus.

However, the Galaxy Note 5 Edge or Project Zero 2 will be a mid-range device with a dual-edge display. It is tipped to feature 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch display, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 16MP main camera, 5MP front snapper, and 32GB built-in storage. The Korean electronics giant has not confirmed any of these details. We will have to wait until September to learn the official features and specs.
