Middle East retailer leaks specs for Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
In the Middle East, the Jarir Bookstore has posted listings for both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. While neither listing included a photo, the specs for each model were posted. This would be a good time to remind you to head over to your pantry so that you can take this story with the proverbial grain of salt. If you're on a salt-restricted diet, a pinch of Mrs. Dash will do just fine.

According to the listing for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the device will feature a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Under the hood is the Exynos 7422 SoC, which includes an octa-core CPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB/64GB of native storage. Yes Virginia, there is a 128GB capacity microSD slot on the Note 5 for those requiring additional memory. A rear-facing 16MP camera is on board, along with a 5MP front-facing shooter. A 4100mAh battery powers the phablet, which has Android 5.1 pre-installed. The Galaxy Note 5 will be available in black or gold. Weighing in at 169 grams, the device measures 7.6mm thick.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ will also feature a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Exynos 7420 SoC will power the handset with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 4GB of RAM inside. 32GB/64GB of internal storage is inside and the back to front camera combo is 16MP/5MP. A 3000mAh battery keeps the engines humming, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed. Under expansion slot the listing says Not Specified, so don't count on expandable memory. The Galaxy S6 edge+ is 6.9mm thin and weighs 156 grams.

Pricing for both devices was not listed. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ will be officially unveiled on August 13th and the Unpacked event in New York City.


Thanks for the tip!

4100mAh battery is nice. Honestly though, I really don't know whether this is worth the premium over the Moto X Style. For an average user like myself, I think I'll be quite happy with the lower SoC but cleaner version of android (and a few hundred dollars in my pocket)

Some people really want something that offers almost everything and arguably the best in everything. . Sammy has been pushing the quality of every feature their smartphone has, --- camera display, CPU, memory, build qlty, UI, SPen etc. Might these be the reasons for more premium price

that's my point. for those people who don't want "the best of everything," the Note 5 doesn't seem worth it.

Since I'm in the market for a higher mid-range phablet, II was really hoping that the Galaxy A8 would come in with a reasonable price, but it didn't. That pretty much leaves the Moto X Style

Well if they would instead push a better quality check i would be happy.

Tired thats at least 30% of all Samsung phone i sale come back before 1 year is done on contract and another 20% come back strangely a few weeks after the warranty is over.

This is the single OEM thats this happen this much.
Some will say yeah but more device sold..
I respond yeah but i am talking about ratio or repair and return and not the total number of repair.

So You can remove Build quality from this liste.

They also need to make it possible whitout Root to remove ANY of the Samsung apps they installed this way ppl can gain memory and also make the phone faster.

Never saw these issues with Samsung on my friend's store.. Instead HTC and Motorola customers return back with complaints a lot of times. Here we tend to believe that when it comes to quality then nothing can match Samsung currently. Sorry, disagree with your points

we have two Notes 3s and my Note Edge and have had three Note 2s. and before this 3 Samsung Galaxy s2s one my friend is still using years later. Quality is not a issue with these phones. Not getting updates quickly but not quality. We also have had several of all the Gears the only problem with Gears is the new Gears S made a very bad charger connection that brakes easy. Other then that when we are done with them which we are power users we sell them and I have never hear of any problems. I stopped using a case two years ago and my Note Edge looks like brand new. And the Over ear wireless bluetooth headset both have held up very well. Something I can not say for the three pairs of beats we owned at 400 they did not make it 6 months!! My over box speakers sounds great and has held up great and I travel with it so it is not pampered. Samsung is not perfect I have several things I would like to see changed. But they provide the three of us with cutting edge tech which is what appreciate.

The bigger battery will be on the 7422 only due to epop, but I may be wrong and the real battery may go into the 7420 ver and the vers being test do not have the end spec

The spec is for the (f) ver as I have posted in the past the (f) will have a bigger battery due to epop 7422, what size the USA is getting when they have to add a full modem ufs and ram board to the 7420 I have no idea, but I be thinking it will be bigger than 3000 used in the test phones due to the note 5 being thicker than the plus , so if you need a bigger battery you have to buy the import and not have as good lte if you in the USA, it's your network thats done this

If this leak is accurate I think myself along with all current note users just got excited again lol. Had a lot of skepticism on all leaks prior to this but now really excited. I can deal with the no removable battery a 4100mAh. Just happy they kept the expandable storage

36. Techist (Posts: 237; Member since: 27 Jan 2015)


Oh yeah! The 3000mAh non-removable battery and no expandable storage were making me think I might sit this one out and see what comes down the pike later on. But 4100mAh with expandable storage and 7422... might just be looking for a buyer for my Note 4. The S6 Edge with 2600mAh has great battery life so this would be epic!

Me too, I hope this is true. I can live without swappable battery when it has 4100mah.

So both phones have a 5.7 inch 2560×1440 screen but the Note 5 has a 4100mAh battery as opposed to the Edges 3000mAh battery? That can't be right

54. medicci37 (Posts: 1272; Member since: 19 Nov 2011)


Yes but with 5.7 inch screen quad HD I would expect Samsung to use something bigger than a 3000mAh battery especially considering the that the battery on the s6 edge is slightly bigger than the one on the s6

76. HighOnAndroidFTW (Posts: 185; Member since: 26 Apr 2015)


It can and is right, edge is more about aesthetics so smaller battery to get a slimmer profile and not to mention the source last by two shaved edges. Vs the note line is the work horse for productivity.

So it makes perfect sense that the note 5 will have a larger battery capacity

77. xtremesv (Posts: 297; Member since: 21 Oct 2011)


Certainly that 4100 mAh battery is very appealing, Note 5 is going to exceed its predecessor with at least 40% more battery life taking also into account the software and hardware optimizations.

If this is true then my prediction is right with the pic showing the sim card slot. I compared it to my s6 sim slot and it seemed pretty long for just a nano sim... I have my Mrs. Dash sprinkled until Thursday... Still day one purchase either way though!!

23. Ashoaib (Posts: 3229; Member since: 15 Nov 2013)


you are right Darkk... may be they are getting only two options at launch... black color is old school, white color is to go... white, satin silver, titanium grey, champaign, turquize blue, the Hulk green should be the options

Moreover, a big relief on hearing about micro sd and 4100mah

I think that was pretty smart. 4100mAh is enough and I'm glad they put the SD slot for those that need it. They would have really regretted not adequately covering these two points.

18. j2001m (Posts: 2886; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)


The USA will not get this model due to using 7420. So the battery will be lower but I be thinking bigger than 3000 as the phone is not as thin as the plus

52. KaneTJ (Posts: 7; Member since: 30 Jul 2015)


You do realize that the upped resolution, beefed up specs and processor is going to eat through that "extra" 1100"mAh like its nothing. youre basically going to have the same if not worse battery life. I dont get how people dont see this.
I guarantee power users will be complaining about battery life not even a month after release.

59. Clars123 (Posts: 678; Member since: 16 Mar 2015)


You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.The Note 4 had only 20mAh more than its predecessor and a higher resolution display..and managed to have excellent battery life...Heck even if the Note 5 maintains the same battery capacity the combination of more energy efficient hardware would ensure similar if not better battery life.

If these specs are true then the Note 5 will easily have some of the best battery life we'll ever see on a phone of its class.

64. iushnt (Posts: 1614; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)


1100 mah battery is a huge size. You first see the battery endurance of s6 active and then come back here. I don't see why you don't see this when everyone does..

The 7422 is epop so that will easy get the bigger battery, but not the 7420 ver using in the USA, but it will have a bigger battery than 3000 on the test models I be thinking as its not as thin as the plus

how they would fit 4k mah in 7.6mm? the same way huawei, lenovo, ZTE and other chinese companies put without even using any ePop... just imagine if chinese companies will be using ePop then they will fit 10k+ mah in 7.6mm

With those speculated awesome Note 5 specs, the real question will be: who is actually going to buy the S6 Edge+?

It has been one heck of a ride listening to all of these Note 5 specs go back and forth!

We, the hard core Note fans, are already disappointed. So its ok to take these specs as fact and feel happy and keep our hope high... after reading these specs Note 5 again become a monster phone in my mind. Before it was dropped from my 2015 wish list of phones. Now it is on the top in line with Huawei Mate 8, LG g4 pro, Lumia 940XL and LeTv Max

All of those phones are on my wish list too lol. Unfortunately the Mate 8 and LeTV Max aren't available in the US. Will they even be compatible with US carriers?
