First impressions of the latest Samsung devices are already on Facebook and Reddit. Final specs have been confirmed for the Galaxy Note 5.

Hands-on impressions on the long-rumored Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 EdgePlus are making headlines around the web. A Thai advertisement agency has published the first images of the sales packaging as well as the core specifications of the Note 5 phablet.

According to the source, the Galaxy Note 5 will have the following specifications:

  • CPU: Exynos 7420 SoC
  • Display: 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED
  • RAM: 4 GB RAM
  • Storage: 32 GB eMMC
  • Cameras: Rear 16 MP, Front 5 MP
  • Software: Android 5.1.1
  • Battery: 4100 mAh

The Note 5 will also support wireless charging, though the pad must be purchased separately.

Meanwhile, the new S-Pen for the Note 5 will have its own recessed housing in the phablet itself. The pen uses a push-type function for ejecting and inserting as previously rumored.

Some notable downsides to the phablet include no MicroSD support and a non-removable battery. The Reddit source also claims that the Note 5 looks and feels better to hold compared to the Galaxy S6 EdgePlus. Samsung will officially unveil both devices this on August 13 during its NYC Unpacked event.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
