Here’s the newest Note!
Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy Note 5 in an event in New York today. Just like the leaks say, the Note 5 takes a number of design cues from its older brother, the Galaxy S6 Edge. The Note 5 for example, has a metal frame and a glass back, and removes the option to put in expandable storage and a separate battery.

Inside the phone sits Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, the same one that powers the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Just like previous models, the Note 5 sports a large, 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, though now the Note 5 comes with a massive 4GB of RAM. Samsung’s S-Pen returns, along with the 16-megapixel rear camera and LTE capability, fingerprint scanner and the excellent handwriting recognition technology that was present in their previous models.
Samsung’s added a couple of new features to the mix. Along with the same, lightly applied TouchWiz UI as its brothers, the Galaxy Note 5 is capable of streaming directly to YouTube, as well as a slightly redesigned S-Pen. The new pen now has a click mechanism that unlocks it from its holster in the bottom. The Note 5 also now allows users to write directly on the display even if it is off, and will keep whatever note or doodle on S Note for you to review later.
