Images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phablet with shimmery gold exterior have surfaced. The Galaxy Note 5 release date is believed to be set for August, along with the Galaxy S6 Edge+. As a matter of fact, the August introduction will give sufficient time for the South Korean tech giant to prepare for the faceoff with the much-awaited iPhone 6s.
Tipster @OnLeaks, who also runs NWE and @stagueve, is running three Samsung Galaxy Note 5 photos in gold. Interestingly, one of the images shows several AT&T-specific apps running on the handset confirming AT&T as one of the carriers scheduled to offer the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 successor, Phone Arena said.
One of the images reportedly sheds light on the rumored S-Pen stylus removal technique. Earlier reports indicated the Galaxy Note 5 will feature an “auto-eject” method of stylus removal, a rumor fueled by a Samsung patent filing. One of the leaked photos shows a small gap at the tail-end of the upcoming device believed to provide enough room for an index finger to jack up the stylus, meaning an auto-eject featureis unlikely.
To top it off, the same leak also shows the housed speaker grill, micro-USB port and the regular 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom of the phablet. These elements are arranged in the same way as they are on the flagship Samsung Galaxy S6. Readers should note, however, the South Korean tech giant has not released the Galaxy Note 5 specifications.
