Is this our best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy Note 5?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is widely expected to land in September this year, but we still don’t really know what it will look like.

Fortunately, a CAD file that seemingly depicts the upcoming handset might be our best look yet at the Galaxy Note 5 design.

The file comes courtesy of prolific rumour-spinner Onleaks, revealing detailed depictions of what might be Samsung’s next flagship phablet.

For a start, the dimensions are listed as 153.4 x 77.3mm – that’s a shade smaller than the 153.5 x 78.6mm Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The render in question appears to show the Galaxy Note 4 proper, and there’s no sign of the much-rumoured Edge-style spin-off.

It’s also worth noting that the CAD handset clearly sports an S Pen slot, which gels with earlier rumours that we’ll see a stylus on the mooted handset.

Unfortunately, this latest reveal doesn’t out much else about the phablet, although we’ve already heard plenty about Sammy’s oft-leaked device.

For instance, we’re expecting a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution.

Then there’s talk of a Samsung-built Exynos 7422 chipset, a USB-C port, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and a beefy 4,100mAh battery.
