More Galaxy Note 5 details appear, dual-edged version codenamed Project Zen
If you have been drooling over that rumored 4K display in the Note 5, you should hold your horses, as the latest insider info claim from Samsung's labs pegs the version with a 4K panel as just an engineering prototype, being tested alongside a 2K option. Which one will Samsung ultimately choose, remains to be seen, though our money is on the "lesser" resolution, as Samsung has to first ensure enough yield for a Super AMOLED 4K panel, and, second - 4K would be pretty overkill on a phone display, though that's never stopped Samsung before.

What is intriguing in this newest string of info about the advancements around Project Noble, or the Note 5 production, is that it is being tested with an Exynos 7422 chipset. This Exynos would be combining for the first time the CPU, graphics processor, RAM, internal storage, and even a homebrew LTE modem in a single package, which likely means Samsung will utilize its unique ePoP (embedded package on package) technology. The all-in-one processing, memory and connectivity solution would eventually result in more space inside for other things, like a larger battery, for instance.

As for the Note 5 edge version with flexible display, it is said to be codenamed "Project Zen," and, surprisingly, sounds like a totally different phone. The insiders tipped that Samsung is toying with a 5.4" or 5.5" Super AMOLED screen that will be curved on both sides, like on the Galaxy S6 edge

The curved Note 5, however, would allegedly be coming with... wait for it... the same hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor that is in the G4. This is rather surprising, as one would think Samsung should be using the same Exynos 7422 which could end up in the Note 5. A 16 MP rear camera with OIS, and a an 8 MP selfie shooter are expected to round up the Note 5 edge offering, along with the inevitable S Pen stylus. What do you think, is there a chance for a dual-edge Note without the latest silicon?

Err... Not interested in getting the 808 model. Seems like Note 4 is gonna stick me with till Note 6. 805 over 808 any day.. of the week/month till 820.

5. gaming64 unregistered

Nowhere in the article was the 808 mentioned. Still, I love how you sided with the Note 4 because because I would do the same :D

"The curved Note 5, however, would allegedly be coming with... wait for it... the same hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor that is in the G4." Read the article properly then.

Dude are you in Middle School? Did you just take time out of your life to force your own fingers to type the word... Owned? I think you have some math homework to do. SMH

Perhaps it's a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Edge Neo.

I too agree with that and have been saying that saying that all along. 805 over the 808 all day

I doubt they will use any SD anymore, considering how good the Exynos did with the S6 and plus how they are now building there official chip factory in there home country

The Note also isn't intended for mainstream consumers. It's meant more for power users. There'd be an uproar if it lost SD.

Bad rumors, probably incorrect.

Maybe Qualcom is the one that spreading the rumors (on 808)
