The release dates of the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus have reportedly been set for Aug. 12. In the meantime, a new leak points to key configuration details of the devices.

The biggest question among potential buyers waiting for the release of the Galaxy Note 5 is the possibility of a microSD card slot. The flagship smartphones Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge do not come with expandable storage options. So far, the numerous leaks and rumors surrounding the Note 5 have not given a clear picture of what to expect in this regard. But now, a leak citing a user-agent profile of a smartphone, tied to the model number SM-N920P, has popped up. Needless to say, Sprint has now taken down the profile page. This model is believed to be the Note 5, specific to the carrier Sprint, notes Phone Arena.

This user-agent profile from Sprint’s official Website has revealed a slew of Galaxy Note 5 specifications. The Galaxy Note 4 successor will come with a microSDXC card slot. Plus, the expansion limit is up to 128 GB. In addition, the handset will feature a Quad HD screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels and the synonymous Super AMOLED display technology.

The Galaxy Note 5 will come powered by Qualcomm’s new MDM9635M chip with "9x35" Gobi modem. Also, this chipset supports Cat. 6 LTE capability, guaranteeing faster data transfer speed. Phone Arena says an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7422 SoC processor will be part of the hardware unit. Plus, the handset will be backed by 3 GB of RAM configuration.

The Galaxy Note 5 will come equipped with 32 GB of internal memory storage capacity. Furthermore, a phenomenal 16 MP rear-facing camera, in addition to a good 5 MP front-facing snapper for selfies and video chat will also be part of the phablet.

The user agent profile of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, tied to the model number SM-G928P, was also part of the leak originated from Sprint. The S6 Edge Plus is identical to the Note 5, except there is no stylus capability. Phone Arena also points out that, the configurations are similar to the coming Note series of devices. The South Korean conglomerate has not confirmed the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus or Galaxy Note 5 specifications thus far.
