As the release date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is coming near, more and more leaks and rumors are surfacing online. Here, you will get to know about all these latest updates and what to expect from the upcoming Samsung phablet.
Following the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will feature a glass and metal combo design. It’s expected to be about 7.9mm thin and pack powerful specs and a fingerprint scanner as well. There won’t be any major change in the screen size so users can expect a 5.67-inch screen showing QHD resolution. According to some latest rumors, Samsung might unveil a dual-edge version of the Galaxy Note 5 as well which will feature the same resolution.
As a flagship device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will pack a reworked version of the currently known Exynos 7420 that can be found inside the Samsung Galaxy S6, which is the Exynos 7422 SoC. It will come with the built-in cellular modem as well. There won’t be any change in the camera megapixel-wise but it will support capturing images in RAW format from now on with Optical Image Stabilization. The upper part of the S Pen is expected to be clickable as well which is a new feature. The battery will be slightly bigger as well, 4,100mAh battery. To make the smartphone 7.9mm thin, it’s possible that the battery will be non-removable and it won’t include any microSD card slot as well.
If everything goes according to plan, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to show up in September at the IFA event just like the previous smartphones in the Note series. However, there are also some rumors suggesting that the phone will show up at an event in August with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
As the Samsung Galaxy Note series includes only high-end devices, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is definitely going to show up with a not-so-pocket friendly price tag. So, before we start talking about the upcoming Samsung flagship device, let’s take a look at the price first. We don’t have the official price tag yet, but we are going to do some guess work here based on their history and leaked information. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 South Africa price is expected to be around 9600 R.
Last year, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 managed to surprise us with its great camera and its 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution. However, now it’s time to talk about the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It’s expected to show up with even bigger screen, resolution and a better camera. Continue reading to learn more about the Samsung Note 5 release date South Africa, specs and more.
Like the previous smartphones in the Galaxy Note series, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be slightly bigger than its predecessor and include a big 5.9-inch Super AMOLED display. The big display will feature 4K resolution or 3840 x 2160 pixels and 746 ppi of pixel density which is quite big and not seen in most of the recently released smartphones. Moreover, it’s expected to look similar to the S6’s glass back and will be super thin with a thickness of only 7.9mm. These are based on rumors so we have to wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 release date South Africa to confirm these. For those who are looking for smartphones with big screens, there is the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and Asus Zenfone 6 that you can check out.
More processing power means more battery consumption. To make sure users get a decent battery life, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to come up with 4100mAh battery. However, to achieve the 7.9mm thickness, users may not be able to remove it. As the Samsung Galaxy S6 shifted to the company’s in-house chip, Exynos, there is a possibility that they will do the same in their upcoming smartphones. However, there are also rumors suggesting that the phone will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 815 or a latest processor if it doesn’t include the Exynos chipset. It’s expected to be accompanied by 4GB or 3GB of RAM and a surprising 64/128GB of built-in storage. For those who are looking for a phone with bigger battery can check out the Lenovo Vibe P1 Pro or Lenovo Vibe P1. If you loved this upcoming Samsung smartphone and also the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 South Africa price, you can think about waiting for the release date.
Another notable feature to look forward to in the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is its camera. Now that the LG G4 is here to give all the popular camera focused smartphones a run for their money, we are hoping to see some improvements in the camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The rear camera is expected to pack a 20.7-megapixel one or the same 16-MP one with better sensors and features. The front camera is expected to be a 5.1-megapixel one like the Samsung Galaxy S6. Other notable features to look forward to are the USB Type C Port and fingerprint scanner.
The release date of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is still a mystery. However, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 South Africa price, it’s possible to guess the release date of this smartphone as well based on their smartphone release cycle. It’s expected to show up in September, 2015 and just like the Samsung Galaxy S6, it’s also expected to include an Edge version.
