With Samsung set to unveil the much-awaited Galaxy Note 5 phablet at an event in New York City on Aug. 13, the leaks of the upcoming handset are gathering momentum.
As the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 inches closer, new images that give a comprehensive look at the smartphone have surfaced online.
The leaked images were obtained by Droid Life and show off the Galaxy Note 5 from all conceivable angles.
The image clearly reveals that the Galaxy Note 5 has taken design cues from the Galaxy S6 and looks like a bigger version of the latter. The Galaxy Note 5 touts the same glass panels, as well as the metal frame found on its sibling. However, there is a notable difference in the design as the Galaxy Note 5's rear has a curve like the Galaxy Edge, which will make the phablet easy to hold.
The publication divulges that the Galaxy Note 5 will pack-in 4GB of RAM and come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options. Unlike previous versions, the next-gen Samsung phablet will not boast a microSD card slot. It is also taking the Galaxy S6 route and will have a non-removable battery - 3000 mAh - which is smaller than those of its predecessor.
One can also espy the S-Pen slot which is located at the bottom of the handset and is expected to be spring loaded so that it can support the rumored auto-eject feature. The USB port on the handset too remains the same and is not Type-C. The images also show off the thin bezels around the screen as well as the headphone jack and bottom speaker.
The images also give a glimpse into the new Air Command menu, which has options for Screen write, Instagram, S Note, Action memo, Smart select and Settings. Air Command will reportedly pop-up when one removes the S Pen stylus from its slot.
Previous rumors have pointed to a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen for the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 smartphone. The device is also anticipated to pack in 16MP and 5MP primary and secondary cameras, respectively. The handset will likely come with an Exynos 7420 SoC and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.
Come Wednesday, Aug. 13, we will learn what surprises Samsung has in store for us.
