Official press renders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ leak?

Official press renders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ leak?
Evan Blass, known as @evleaks, has tweeted out what appears to be official press renders of both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. Both phones are expected to be unveiled during the next Samsung Unpacked event on August 13th. The event will take place in New York City, ironically nicknamed "The Big Apple."

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is rumored to have a global launch and will be the beneficiary of a huge marketing budget from Samsung. The device is basically similar to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, but with a 5.7-inch screen. For example, a listing on Indian import-export site Zauba recently confirmed that the same 16MP rear snapper on the Galaxy S6 edge will adorn the back of the Galaxy S6 edge+.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to be powered by the Exynos 7422 chipset and while it won't have a curved screen like the Galaxy S6 edge+, it will come with the S Pen housed in a tube-like home on the bottom right of the phablet. Users will pry the pen out of its housing by using an index finger and a gap opening left on the bottom of the phone, just for that reason. The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to launch in markets where previous versions of the Galaxy Note line has sold well. That includes the U.S. and South Korea.

If you haven't already, circle August 13th on your calendar for the big event. And there is plenty of time remaining before the unveiling, for more huge leaks to take place. Check in often!

Never used it and stil don't with my S6 Edge.)
Most useless feature ever on a phone in my opinion.

Yes....your opinion. There are many of us that use the IR blaster frequently.

It doesn't make sense to remove features from supposed "updated" handsets, especially high-end expensive models like the Note 5. Manufacturers are supposed to add features, not take away.

evleaks: "no SD for Note5"

It does not work with ufs
If you like your note 5 to be slower than the s6 then you got it with the note 4

Please note sd card readers (not the sd cards) damage the phones bandwidth due to the way they are linked to the emmc controller on the phone, also at the same time even if you using a supper fast sd card, it will go supper slow
Please note that the 1+1 emmc hd bandwidth is way faster than note 4 and the lg G4

Please note it is way faster to use a small sd card reader linked to your new note 5 USB port or by wifi on a small key ring reader, linked with the new ufs 3x r and w speeds, also your sd cards will have the faster speeds supported, please note the above setup wil get anything done way faster.

Please note that the GS4 with SD card has faster storage speeds than the HTC M7 without. Please also note that your FUD had been disproven many times before, but you continue to cling to it like mid in the short yellow bus clings to the window he's licking.

Ignore the retard j2001m. He's a guy who read somewhere that you can't have microsd and UFS2, and having zero knowledge himself, just repeats it like a brain damaged parrot.

To correct his FUD - yes, it is possible to have both in one phone, but it requires a separate controller. No, simply having an SD card does not cause your phone to slow down or lag (unless you're installing apps to it, they will slow down). The only time an SD card slots down your phone at is when you're reading or writing to it. If you're just accessing music or video stored in it, you'll never notice the slowdown.

I don't know what his agenda is, but I suspect he's just trying to evangelize the S6. Regardless, pay him no mind.

Hmmmm. Looks like the rumours that the Note 5 actually might be only slightly larger than the G4 is true. Which means the GS6 edge plus might be smaller than the G4.

Game over for the G4.

This probably won't work because Apples brand is too crazy right now but if you put one of these next to a HUGE iPhone 6plus it would make the iPhone look like a joke how much smaller these handsets are with a bigger screen. Logically it should work, but in the sheepland we are currently in it might not. Lol

Yeah but it's 5.7 including the curve so it will probably be smaller.

You are forgetting that the G4 has a pretty high screen to body ratio, but yeah who knows. If they pull it off t would be nice

52. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)


I am just basing my observations in the rumoured Note 5 measurements which pegs it very close to the G4 measurement but thinner. So if you extrapolate that the GS6 edge is smaller than the GS6, then the GS6 edge plus should be smaller than the Note 5. And the no bezel picture here supports this theory.

Although we might have false information but we shall see.

From the way both phone are placed side by side at Gsmarena, It is most likely that the s6 edge+ may be more taller than the note 5. That may also confirms the previous dimensions that were given to the s6 edge+ which were still higher than those of the note 4.

haha no i havent seen one in person, they are quite hard to come by for now, i just think the green shimmer effect with the oled panel looks beyond amazing and incredible and the inky blacks, very unique and eye catching with the aluminum magnisium trim around the phone

I mostly agree, except I do have areas where I drop to 3g, then it's like having home 800 baud dialup speeds.

I think for the Note 5, they will include the SD card slot to retain and get back the customers. Look at Motorola, they listened. I doubt Samsung will just continue the trend of ditching SD card slot, since Note series are well-known for their flexibility.

No need to be rude, im sure Samsung can easily bring SD card support but i guess they just dont want too.. You can record 4k in realtime to a SD card which is beyond most peoples need for processing power... But one thing i will say that is UFS is fast, i just got a 32gb galaxy s6 today for verizon and it is really fast, faster then my note 4 that is debloated with the 805 and it suprises me to be honest i didnt think itd be noticeably faster in real world operation but it is.

Im on 5.0.2 and after about 40 things disabled in application manager, i have about 800 mb of ram free on this current build , runs dam good and its without 5.1.1 new hotfixes.. Samsung devices out the box though are not 100% optimized with carrier bloatware and it just bogs down everything.

The Note 5 might look like this but this is most definitely a bad photoshop. Notice the really huge multitasking and back shapes on the capacitive keys. Now look at the second picture for the S6 edge+. Also look at the S6 one.

Then there is the screen which looks like pasted slightly below it was intended. The top bezel looks slightly bigger than bottom one and the space below the home button is more than the top of it.

The S6 edge+ render may be true though. But come on, the Note 5 is clearly a photoshop.

That is the same thing with the s4, the top bezels are bigger the bottom and the space under the home button is bigger than the one on top. I don't see anything wrong with that. These note 5 photo just looks like the s4 front.

Definitely BEAUTY and the BEAST, but i'm leaning towards BEAUTY at the moment!

It would depend on whether the reflecting light on the edges of the EDGE would irratate me, and how it feels in the hand compared to the NOTE!

I don't think the specification of the phones will matter much to me, as i don't really care for sd card and removable batterys once i get the 128GB version. A better Camera and epop on the NOTE might change me tho.

One thing i did hear tho was that the NOTE might get the new smaller Lens on the back, which is also supposed to improve optics.

We shall all see on the 13th August exactly what goody's Samsung are bringing for us!!

And i am loving my new S6 Edge.
Technically it's not new, but it feels so after the latest update. The battery life is crazy good, the phone is blazing fast with no UI stuttering and no homescreen reloading, and most importantly, the ram management has been fixed.
I had doubts over me sticking with the S6 Edge, but now I am pretty sure I won't be ditching it anytime soon.

That's cool bro. I sold mine yesterday for $520, goal was between 500-550, so I'm good. I want the bigger one, or the N5. They're slated to launch with 5.1.1, so they should run really good. I hear a slightly more powerful processor, and 4 gigs of ram too. I'm not sure which one yet, but I'm kinda leaning towards the N5. I have to see in persons first though.

If you're not a big user of the S-pen, I am guessing you're gonna end up with the Edge+ and iPhone 6s combo by the end of September.

Lol! AT&T does have that 14 day buyers remorse period. I'm sooo on the fence with the 6S Maherk. It's gotta have the specs, and even then, if it doesn't have the full multitasking features of iOS 9, I'm skipping it. I simply see no reason to buy a new iPhone that doesn't get all the features, not gonna happen. If it does get them, I'll buy it. I'm not a huge S-Pen user, as you said, but I'm a total fan of it. If they're spot on equal in specs, the Edge plus could get the nod due to the design. I'm in love with it. This is a total toss up, and will be a game time decision my man. All I know is, one of them comes home on launch day, and I have 14 days to switch. I call that a nice position. Are you for sure, you're not gonna try one?

I hear you, still I am sure you will end up getting the 6s/6s+.
And yup, I am 100% sure that this will be the 1st time I ll he skipping on the Note series, the S6 Edge is too good for me to ditch it.

If they spec it right to make it future proof for a few years, and give it the entire iOS 9 experience, I'm all in, but the N5 and Edge + have my debit card number lol. Depending on what they show in two weeks, you may jump too bro.
