The Galaxy Note series is one of the most speculated device line-up of Samsung, every year. Even this year, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be released with top-of-the-line specifications, along with stunning exterior design. To top it off, the recently released Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are reportedly selling like hot cakes across the globe. This means, the expectation surrounding the next-in-line device is quite high. In the meantime, here’s a bunch of new features and specifications reported to be part of the upcoming phablet.

In general, it is widely presumed that, high-end phablets with humongous display and slim body will be able to accommodate only a smaller battery unit and therefore, the battery life will be a subpar. However, this perception will apparently change when the Note 5 releases. According to Phone Arena, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will house a powerful 4,100 mAh battery unit.

Speaking of other key Galaxy Note 5 specifications, the handset is believed to feature a killer 5.9-inch display. In any case, the 5.9-inch display will not be aided by a 4K screen resolution, as rumored earlier. Instead, it will settle for a Quad HD Super AMOLED screen. Meanwhile, Phone Arena says, the 4K resolution is still in the experimentation phase at this point. Therefore, any Samsung handset waiting to be released in the near future might not flaunt such a futuristic display feature.

Furthermore, the Galaxy Note 5 will reportedly house a Type-C USB port, wireless charging capability and UFS 2.0-powered internal storage. To top it all off, the device will apparently be ultra-thin at 7.9 mm frame. In comparison, the predecessor Galaxy Note 4 comes with a thickness of 8.5 mm.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 5 will reportedly be powered by Samsung’s very own octa-core Exynos 7422 processor. It is worth noting that, the Exynos 7422 SoC is more powerful than the one seen in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. On the software front, the phablet will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS, out of the box, says Christian Today.

Additionally, the device will come with an advanced S-pen stylus, following the trend set by the Note series of phablets. Speaking of Galaxy Note 5 release date, the phablet will reportedly be introduced at the IFA 2015 event, scheduled for early-September. Nonetheless, readers should note that, Samsung has not confirmed the Galaxy Note 5 specifications thus far.
