Unlike last year, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 in August. The Galaxy Note 4, on the other hand, was introduced at the IFA 2014 event in September. The reported reason for shifting the launch date earlier is because of the expected Apple iPhone 6s's arrival in September, Phone Arena reported. In the meantime, a case-maker has apparently sent out renders of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, revealing key information.
What Is New?
SM Arena reported case-maker Itskins has sent out several renders of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, providing dimensions and control layout. The new schematics reportedly show the same 5.7-inch display size. The handset looks like a good mix of the metal-clad Galaxy S6 and the accents resemble the typical Note line-up of devices, Phone Arena said. A pop-up mechanism reportedly has been developed for Samsung for the stylus/s-pen. This new technology apparently has an “automated or push” mechanism to eject the stylus.
