Leaks and renders of Samsung’s upcoming phablet Galaxy Note 5 have become increasingly common as its official launch approaches. Now Ulak, which makes accessories for smartphones, has come up with pre-launch case renders of the Galaxy Note 5. These leaks confirm previous reports from reliable tipster @OnLeaks and French website NoWhereElse.fr.
Galaxy Note 5 to look similar to S6
Ulak has a history of launching cases for flagship Apple and Samsung products over a month before these phones’ official launch. The latest case renders show an S Pen stylus, speaker, headphone jack, and charger port at the bottom. The cutout for the camera is wider than it is in the previous Note phablet, indicating that the LED flash will sit on the side of the camera instead of below it.
In terms of design, the Galaxy Note 5 closely resembles the Galaxy S6. The next-gen Note will reportedly have an aluminum frame and glass back panel that will deprive users of a removable battery and a microSD slot. Samsung will increase the battery size in Galaxy Note 5 to 4,100mAh from 3,220mAh in Note 4 to make up for the non-removable battery.
Contrary to rumors of a USB Type-C port, the Galaxy Note 5 will feature the mainstream microUSB 2.0 port. GSM Arena says the Galaxy Note 5 will boast of an auto-ejectable stylus. Samsung was granted a new patent last month by the U.S. PTO for an auto-ejectable stylus. The technology relies on software, and uses magnets to achieve auto-ejection.
Galaxy Note 5 details leaked
Inside sources familiar with the matter told SamMobile that the Galaxy Note 5 would sport a 5.67-inch Super AMOLED display and a powerful Exynos 7422 processor. The new chipset combines CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and memory on a single chip. Samsung is widely expected to unveil the Note 5 at the annual IFA event in September.
Earlier this week, the Korean electronics giant came up with a promotional campaign for the Galaxy Note 4, signalling that the next-gen phablet is about to arrive soon. Samsung is offering $200 rebate on the purchase of Note 4.
