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.

To my understanding the A72 won't be ready until 2016; have you heard any other news in that regard?

Fake for sure. Just a blown up Galaxy S6 with an S Pen. Where's the USB type C?

i think that note 5 will have SD820 processor inside.

I hope it to be Exynos only. This could lead for more competition and in the end it benefits the consumers. Every flagship with the same processor inside is kinda boring.

Plus Exynos is more easily exploited then Snapdragon, which means a quick root method.

If, and that's a big "if", this rendering has any actual credibility, this will lend some validity the Note 5 and the S6+ are going to be the same phone.
