Despite the fact that it’s about to present the model of its acclaimed Galaxy Note series, Samsung is still keeping the crossover smartphone/tablet’s full spec list a well-guarded secret. However, as we time aproaches Berlin’s IFA 2015, the event at which the tablet will be officially revealed towards the public, rumors are getting more and more incessant about new surprise features that Samsung will attach to its new phablet.
Bear in mind that nothing is set in stone and these are mostly rumors which, as you will see, aren’t even really exact. As far as the display goes, the Galaxy Note 5 has been rumored of coming with 5.4 or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, which will be capable of rendering at higher resolutions than the Note 4 and Galaxy S6. Namely, it will be able to display a 2160×3640 resolution. On the technical side, it’s speculated that the Galaxy Note 5 will pe powered by an Exynos 7422 processor.
The Galaxy Note 5, like its predecessors, will also have a more expensive EDGE variant boasting slightly higher specs and reportedly 5.78-inch screen; it will also boast a more powerful Snapdragon 808 processor with six cores.
One rumor which has been persistent since plans of the Galaxy Note 5 have been known is the fact that Samsung plans to release the phablet with a display supporting 4K resolution. While this would be huge for Samsung, who would go down in history as the first manufacturer of 4K mobile devices, the time span since the release of the Galaxy Note 4 is probably too small for a proper development of such technology and would also require a hefty price increase.
A more plausible feature though would see a technology already patented by the Korean giant put to use in the Galaxy Note 5. SamMobile present the idea that the phablet may be the first device to implement the S Pen auto-eject feature, which would have the stylus be auto-removed from its socket either by a special button or, more interesting, a voice command. While this might not be the technical feature to lose your mind over, it would still be a pretty neat idea, and would be interesting to see implemented in its voice command version.
The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 at IFA 2015 is probably set in stone despite no official announcement yet. This was indirectly confirmed by Samsung vice president Rhee In Jong when he said that the company’s new payment service Samsung Pay will be implemented into the company’s next mobile device following the Galaxy S6 which, barring any surprises, is going to be the Galaxy Note 5.
