The Verizon Wireless version of Samsung's next-gen phablet has been spotted and the latest rumors claim it might launch before the end of July.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has been in the rumor mill for a long time and multiple reports about its specs and features flooded the Web during the last few weeks. As its rumored date of launch approaches, more detailed information appears - now a Verizon Wireless device known as Samsung SM-N920V has been spotted on Geekbench.

The database entry is dated July 23 and shows the results obtained running Geekbench 3.3.2. The SM-N920V handset uses the Exynos 7420 SoC and has 4 GB of memory. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and managed to score 1418 (single-core) and 4399 (multi-core). Older leaks mentioned a Write on PDF feature, USB Type C, glass back and a premium, rugged build.

While the phablet was first rumored to come out in September, the rumored launch date was then moved to August 12. Now, some sources claim that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 might arrive as soon as this week, also packing a microSD slot. None of these has been confirmed yet, so we should just wait and see.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
