Samsung has sent out media invites for a launch event on August 13 in New York, where it is expected to take the wraps off the Galaxy Note 5 phablet and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. In the run up to the event, we have been treated to a lot of leaks, and adding to that list is a set of live photos.
French website NoWhereElse has shared photos of a Galaxy Note 5 prototype giving a close look at the front, and the S Pen. To be more precise, the photos contradict earlier rumors of an S Pen ejection mechanism. If these photos are true, one will need to use his/her fingernails to remove the Galaxy Note 5’s stylus, which is how it has been since the first Galaxy Note. The other photos are in line with earlier leaks.
From what we have come across so far, the Galaxy Note 5 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, Exynos 7422 processor, 4GB of RAM, 16-megapixel camera, 5-megapixel front camera and a 4,100mAh battery. It is also expected to purge one of Galaxy S6’s biggest sins by featuring a microSD card slot.
Alongside the Galaxy Note 5, Samsung is also expected to take the wraps off the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus on August 13. This is essentially going to be a bigger variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge. It is expected to feature a QHD display, 2.1GHz Exynos 7420 64-bit processor, Mali T760 GPU, 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32GB internal storage, and will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
