The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to come packed with a number of features, including an Exynos 7422 64-bit octa-core chip, 16MP camera, 5.7-inch AMOLED display, 4GB of memory and a redesigned click-to-eject S-Pen stylus. Several leaks have also pointed to the Note 5 taking its design cues from the S6, with a glass back and metal edges.
In addition to the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung is also expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 Edge+, a larger version of the curved-screen S6 Edge. Though Samsung hasn’t officially announced either device, a leak spotted on Tuesday revealed that Samsung may begin pre-orders for the S6 Edge+ between Aug. 21 and Sept. 3.
Traditionally Samsung’s Note unveilings have happened in September during the IFA trade show in Berlin. But this year it has opted for an earlier launch to better position itself against Apple’s next iPhones. In lieu of a Note 5 unveiling at IFA, it may instead use the event to showcase a circular smartwatch dubbed the Gear A, according to SamMobile.
Samsung’s latest smartphones arrive as the company faced its fifth consecutive quarter of declining profits, in part due to poor sales of its S6 and S6 Edge.
