Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Revealed Via Case Manufacturer?

Is this what the Galaxy Note 5 will look like?

We’re creeping up to the eventual launch and reveal of Samsung’s upcoming phablet, the Galaxy Note 5, and as is custom before a high profile release of a global flagship, leaks of the device have been popping up to spoil all the fun. This time alleged photos from a case manufacturer Rearth, which shows an intimate look at the inside of the phone thanks to their case bumper.


If the photos from Rearth are to be believed, the Galaxy Note 5 borrows heavily from the design of the Galaxy S6. Gone is the faux leather back that adorned the Note 4, instead replaced with metal and glass. There’s still a camera bump in the back, and the back portion of the phone is curved to facilitate better handling. Just like the Galaxy S6, the phone sports chamfered, aluminum edges and a repositioned volume grille on the bottom.


The phone is pegged to be just 6.33mm thick, which is an improvement over the 8.5mm Galaxy Note 4. It also looks that the Galaxy Note 5 is dropping the removable battery and expandable storage options, just like the S6.

What do you think of the Note 5 so far? Let us know in the comments below.
