Samsung Galaxy Note 5 specs and pics leaked again as launch draws near


Galaxy Note 5 leak

Separate reports on Monday have shed more light on the inside and outside of the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

A series of high-resolution photos have offered perhaps the clearest look at the device yet, ahead of its rumoured launch within the next few weeks.

The pictures (via Nowhereelse.fr) show the device from multiple angles, including one offering a clearer look at the S Pen mechanism.

Despite previous leaks, it appears the Galaxy Note 5's S Pen will still be removed manually, rather than rocking a push-to-eject or auto-eject mechanism.

Meanwhile, over at GSMAerna, there’s news of the internals thanks to leaked benchmarking reports.

In a leaked screenshot, the CPU-Z tool is shown running on a Galaxy Note 5, seemingly confirming the rumoured 4GB RAM and Samsung Exynos 7422 processor.

The screenshot also adds to speculation the Galaxy Note 5 will arrive packing a 5.7-inch QHD display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. As expected, it appears that the phablet will offer the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.

Why would Samsung deign not to add USB Type-C to its business-focused device?

Samsung put a beefy processor in a tiny little device with an overkill screen like this, and put a 5433 in the upcoming 9.7 inch S2 tablet. As a company, Samsung really need to reduce their product range when it comes to smartphones/tablets, and provide more value at the midrange.

Tiny little device? I mean compared to a television, sure, but for a smartphone it's up there. Not nearly the largest smartphone device out there but nowhere near the smallest either. The focus with the Note series has always been business and performance anyhow.

These "premium" devices have plateaued, technology wise. Samsung would be better off concentrating on the mid-range and being more competitive, instead of trying to emulate Apple. The era of the premium smart phone is coming to an end.

I don't know where you got this information. Yeah, number wise low-end and mid-range devices sell far more. But there's still millions upon millions of people willing to spend top dollar for the best of the line devices.
And how are they trying to emulate Apple? I'm not a fan of Samsung, but the S6 is still better than the iPhone 6.

Besides, Samsung and Apple are not the only companies in the world, believe it or not.
