Pics of final Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leak ahead of August 13 event

Purported photos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have spent more time on the internet than snaps of Kim Kardashian’s bottom, but now we may be seeing the finished article. Of the phone, that is, not the bottom.

The Droid-Life website has obtained what it claims to be images of the completed 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5, which will all-but-certainly be unveiled on August 13.

“It looks a lot like a bigger Galaxy S6 with its metal frame and glass panels, but it differs in that the back has an Edge-like curve to it, likely to make it easier to hold,” the report says, while also pointing out the “crazy thin” bezels.

Beyond the look and feel, the source adds credence to reports hinting the S Pen will be spring-loaded.

There’s also a regular USB port (no OnePlus Two-style Type-C here) and, like the Galaxy S6 it seems there’ll be no SD slot to accompany the 32/64/128GB storage options.

The leak represents the clearest look yet at the device, which will attempt to follow in the footsteps of a long line of successful Note phablets.

Samsung’s latest effort will take centre stage at the Unpacked Event in New York City next Thursday.

The company is also rumoured to be launching the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and its new round-faced Gear A smartwatch.

Samsung usually reserves its autumn mobile launches until the IFA tech show, but it is thought the Koreans are hoping to steal a march on Apple before the iPhone 6S range arrives.

The fact that the Note 5 doesn't have a microSD slot (I can see the logic with the S6 but in Samsung's business oriented device? Absolutely not) and that Samsung passed the opportunity to have USB Type-C on one of its high-end phones makes the upcoming Note 5 seem really disappointing. I'll reserve judgement until the official release but I need microSD and all the benefits USB Type-C provides seems like a no brainer for any phone, let alone a phone claiming to be the perfect enterprise device.

Not to mention that 3000 mAh battery (mentioned in the Droid-Life post this article references) is TINY for a device this size!

I really liked the Galaxy Note 4 last year. It could've looked better in some places but it was a great phone.
Why did Samsung have to make this a commercial-only device? They should've let the S6 Edge Plus do that and gave this phone a more durable design, bigger battery, USB Type-C and microSD.

Seems I will be staying with my Note 3 for another year, much as I love beautiful screens!

I can't understand Sammy but they don't try to understand me!
