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.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 specs

  • Exynos 7420 octa-core processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 2560 x 1440 resolution
  • 32\64GB of storage
  • 16-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop, TouchwizUI
  • 3000mAh 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.

  1. Galaxy Note fans were, at the time, expecting the Galaxy Note5 to never go all Galaxy S6 and remove storage expansion.

    And as of now, it’s only the opposite of what they’ve expected. The Note5 now has no microSD card slot now. And there’s not even the 128GB model just like the S6 Edge +. A shameful display! (Not AMOLED display)

    1. i agree! the mere fact of non-expandable storage and a downgrade of battery is a big dissapointment!

      Samsung Galaxy Note 4 910C is the last great phablet to rule them all.

  2. Olats na tong si SAMSUNG, nagpaka-Apple na. A VERY DISAPPOINTING release.
    Give me a slower processor pero may MicroSD, dun ako….

  3. Problem with samsung is that they are trying to copy the iphone too much, they are starting to veered away from what made them successful in the past, and that’s by being an alternative option for iphone. No wonder sales are going down for samsung. I’ve been a note series collector but will skip this one. So dissapointed!
