Samsung’s next phablet may borrow its looks from its smaller sibling. Leaked schematics obtained by French tech blog Nowhereelse.Fr reveal a Galaxy Note 5 that sports a similar look to the Galaxy S6 -- albeit much larger.
According to the images, the Samsung phablet’s design will have a metal-edge body with similar placement of the bottom headphone, data and speaker ports. The main difference is the presence of another hole on the bottom right edge that appears to be where the S Pen stylus will be stored for the Galaxy Note 5.

Another notable detail revealed in the drawings is what appears to be a 5.7-inch screen. That stands in contrast to previous rumors that pointed toward a 5.9-inch screen for the Galaxy Note 5, TechnoBuffalo said. In comparison, the Galaxy S6 has a 5.1-inch display and the Apple iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch display.
Another feature that may not make it into the phablet is a type-C USB port, a connector standard used by Apple’s new MacBooks, Google’s Chromebook and the Nokia 1 Tablet. Instead, the schematics show a phablet equipped with microUSB 2.0, a port standard used by many of today’s smartphones, including the Galaxy S6.
Samsung hasn’t officially announced the Note 5. But it is expected to debut in September during the IFA trade show in Berlin. Aside from aesthetic changes, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to sport a number of new features, including an octa-core Exynos 7422 processor, 4100 mAh battery and a 16MP camera.
