Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – Rumour Round Up

samsung-galaxy-note-5With the likelihood of a new iPhone on the horizon due to the expected launch of the iPhone 6S in September, Samsung are apparently planning on launching their new Galaxy Note 5 smartphone at the end of August. Here’s the lowdown on the features we can expect from the new Note 5.

It’s only been 9 months since we saw the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, the large 5.7-inch phablet-sized smartphone which comes with the famous S Pen stylus. The speculation is that the Galaxy Note 5 will sport a display which is slightly bigger than its predecessor at 5.89-inches and have a stunning QHD screen. The design of the Note 5 is rumoured to share similarities to the Samsung Galaxy S6 which boasts a metal and glass frame. It’s also thought to be very slim at 7.9mm thick.

There’s a bit of a debate concerning the rear-facing camera we’re likely to see on the Note 5. It could be a 16-megapixel camera as seen on the S6 or as big as a 21-megapixel snapper. On the front, we anticipate a good quality camera which could be as powerful as 8-megapixels.

Latest reports indicate that the Note 5 could feature an Exynos 7422 processor which is a chip which includes an octa-core processor, built-in RAM and a Shannon LTE modem. Like the Galaxy S6, the Note 5 could feature the new UFS 2.0 storage rather than expandable storage via a microSD slot. It’s thought that it will come with 32GB of onboard storage minimum. There’s speculation that there will be 2 variants of the Note 5, one of which will have a curved screen and possibly will not feature a S Pen stylus.

The battery inside the Galaxy Note 5 is likely to be a powerful 4100mAh and could offer wireless charging. With a more efficient processor, the large battery should offer a very respectable amount of talk time.
