First alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 5 case renders hint at the handset's design, could this be the real deal?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is coming early September and it was about time we began hearing a bit more about the handset. Yes, the usual specs rumors and hearsay have been around for some time now, suggesting that the Note 5 will be a spectacular powerhouse, but when it comes to the actual design of the upcoming S Pen-toting handset, we could only speculate.

Not that anything has changed, but now we have some alleged case renders that give us some more sound food for speculation. A hadful of pics published by show us an alleged Galaxy Note 5 comfortably resting in what seems to be a rugged case.

So what do we have here? Although the device itself is barely visible, it is hinted that it will employ a number of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge's exterior design. Apart from a cutout for the S Pen stylus at the bottom and a bottom-positioned loudspeaker (unlike previous Note devices, which had their loudspeakers at the back), the Galaxy Note 5 might also come with a volcano-shaped camera unit at the back, once again similar with the one on the Galaxy S6/S6 edge.

As usual, these renders should be taken with a bucket of salt. Despite logical, we are not entirely convinced that Samsung will introduce a blown-up Galaxy S6 with an S Pen. Who knows, these might turn out to be the real deal. Check them out below; read our full rumor round-up for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
