Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of devices is definitely one of the most powerful brands in the mobile tech world. The first Galaxy Note phablet was launched back in 2011 and has almost immediately gained huge popularity, despite the fact it was considered quite big at the time. Many people have been waiting for Samsung to announce the 5th-gen Galaxy Note device, and after months and months of rumors, this Korea-based tech giant has finally done it today. We’ve already covered the initial announcement of the Galaxy Note 5, and are here to take a closer look at its specifications.
The Galaxy Note 5 features a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440, 518ppi) Super AMOLED display along with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32 or 64GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage (depending on the variant you choose to purchase). Samsung’s newest phablet is powered by the company’s Exynos 7420 64-bit 14nm octa-core SoC (4 x 2.1GHz + 4 x 1.5GHz), and a 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package. The 16-megapixel OIS camera (f/1.9 aperture) is available on the back of this device, and a 5-megapixel shooter (f/1.9 aperture) can be found up front. The device measures 153.2
