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!

I still can't believe no IR blaster. It's a feature I use daily.

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.

Stop perpetuating lies, stupid. You CAN have BOTH UFS and SD.

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

Nah, s6 edge + will be 5,7 right? Those 0,2 inches will make it bigger

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

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.
