With just one day to go for the official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 5 from Samsung, some images of the device, said to be official promotional material from Samsung, has leaked out online. The smartphone will reportedly be officially announced on Thursday, August 13th at the ‘Unpacked’ event in New York City at 11 in the morning, alongside another large-screened device ostensibly named the Galaxy S6 Edge+. Coming to the latest leak, what we get to see are three different images of a smartphone said to be the Galaxy Note 5, with its screen turned off. Two of the images appear to show off the black version of the handset whereas the final picture represents the white-colored version.
News about the Galaxy Note 5 has been leaking like crazy as we get closer to the announcement tomorrow. It was just earlier in the week that we saw images of what was said to be the official packaging for the phablet. Much before the current leaks, from multiple rumors emanating from different sources, we had already gotten to know about the hardware expected to be packed-in by the fifth generation of Samsung’s phablet flagship. We also got to know some more details about the device when it was certified in Malaysia by the country’s regulator SIRIM.
Talking about the rumored hardware specs of the upcoming smartphone, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to feature a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display, which will give the smartphone a pixel density of 515 dpi. The Note 5 is rumored to be powered by the Exynos 7420 SoC, which is designed in-house by Samsung, and is already found in the company’s current flagships – the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge. The device is said to come with 4 GB of RAM, and will have an option of either 32 or 64 GB of storage, according to rumors. The handset will come with a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel selfie-cam. The battery on the Galaxy Note 5 is said to come with a rating of 3,000 mAh and the device will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out the box. The Galaxy Note 5 is also expected to feature a fingerprint scanner.
