Amid rampant leaks and rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has garnered much attention since the tech giant introduced the unusually designed Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone. The Note lineup of devices has been a big hot with a stylus pen in tow. Meanwhile, here is a list of reported specifications, features, in addition to the leaked photos, release date and possible price of the coming phablet.
Galaxy Note 5 Leaked Photos
Leaked live photos picked up by Droid-Life confirm two key, most-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 5 specifications. The coming phablet will not come with a removable battery unit, and there will be no microSD card slot. The Note 5 looks like a replica of the Galaxy S6’s exterior design, but is bigger and has a curved back, notes Phone Arena.
The 2015 flagship smartphones Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge do not feature the aforesaid features either. In order to get a slick design, Samsung has compromised on usability. But then, the Note series have been a standout for offering every aspect a customer would desire. However, that trend is about to change with the Galaxy Note 5. In the meantime, readers can check out the leaked live images from Droid-Life.
