Note 5 CAD drawings and concept renders pop up, depicting a premium phablet chassis

Note 5 CAD drawings and concept renders pop up, depicting a premium phablet chassis
So far, most rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 phablet indicate that it will follow in the design footsteps of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, namely a premium metal-and-glass unibody with a thin frame and a sealed battery. If this turns out to be true, it would be quite a radical departure from all Notes so far, which are mostly plasticky and somewhat chubby.

We've only glimpsed the eventual general dimensions of the Note 5 from a couple of crappy silicon cases which the makers claim are based on the real thing, as usual, but the only to know is to wait for the phablet to land. 

Now, a concept render is another thing totally, and those by Andrea Sanso have proven to be good at depicting the rumor mill's musings about the design and features of popular flagships. Meanwhile, a few CAD drawings, claimed to be of the Note 5, have been unearthed, and they depict the same general S6-esque form that we see in the concept drawings, so there's a better chance now that the new Note will look in a somewhat similar way to the S6 and S6 edge, but in a much larger format, and, of course, with an S-Pen stylus silo. Check them out below, and tell us what you think about the premium way that the Note 5 looks here.

Samsung's flagship devices had it for some time now.

Because its Samsung. Because they pack extras into the camera that makes it bigger. Because the casing is thinner than the sensor. because you're going to stick a case on it anyways which will prevent the camera from poking out. THAT'S WHY? In fact, why don't you call Samsung and ask them.

Because for any type of decent shot, you NEED a large sensor. There's no getting around that.

looks like a flipped Galaxy s6 Edge lol btw I hope the back cover is metal because glass doesn't look and feel good being curved that way

How do you know? You have a phone with a curved glass like this on the back?

ehm check out the Xiaomi Mi note with a 3D curved back cover and btw I'm using the S6 Edge and i know how it feels in the hand just by flipping the phone and hold it as if the back cover is the screen the curved glass makes it a lot more slippery, especially with big devices

Grow some man-sized hands and the slipperiness goes away.

I will look good, work well, feel better. But I am expecting more improved phone than S6 as last years Note 4 was to S5.

While it looks beautiful. It's just an enlarged S6 Edge. I think It'd be better if they built up on Note 4's design.

The Note 3 is still the best screen-body ratio in the Note series! The top and bottom bezels are getting thicker every year.

24. TechieXP1969

Posts: 14967; Member since: Sep 25, 2013

Yeah, means it uses SIM cards like any other GSM enabled phone.

U hardly use ur brain process things,if I'm not wrong,what he wants to say is that note 5 might not come with a removable back with the design is legit

I like the back side curve better than than front. But they should have put a 4k battery and made it thick enough to make the camera flush. Hope it has a top side SD card slot.

Nope as it will use ufs 2.0 and thats not 8bit like emmc 5.0 used in iPhones and the s5 I.e. Does not work will never work not going. To happen

I don't see why oem's can't make metal removable backs... HTC made one with the hd2 if I'm not mistaken... It can be done.

It can be done. But, manufacturers want to RAPE you with non-removable batteries and microSD to increase sales and profits. Don't allow yourself to be raped.

Nope, Samsung are using ufs 2.0 Sd card do not work will never work I will pay $1000 if they ever do, but they can not and will not ever happen, the only way it can be done is by using USB and that will not happen

I honestly would love to see something like the Samsung Wave 3, where the metal "unibody" slides open to reveal the innards. http://www.phonearena.com/image.php?m=Reviews.Images&f=name&id=104429&popup=1 - In case you have no idea what I'm talking about

Once batteries are thin enough, they should just have larger electable sim trays for the battery. Or just make them like high end metal cameras, there battery latches are more than elegant enough.

I can't see why everyone wants metal. It's not nearly as forgiving as that of plastic. Also, due to it's conductive nature, it is either hot or cold. there is no in-between for these devices. I fail to see the appeal.

As someone commented, it does look like a reversed S6 Edge. which is fine. But I think they should have made it essentially like the S6 Edge design as a standard model and just include the S-Pen tray. Looks nice though.But since I have a phone that basically looks like that, I need to see what is going to happen inside. Here's hoping they drop in a much faster set of CPU's, a much improved GPU, 20MP camera on the back and 5MP on the front and 3500MAH or larger battery. Maybe the SPen will be improved to 4096 and be longer so its easier to hold. Though I love my S6 Edge, I really miss having my Note.

Do you have source to back your previous statement? "UFS 2.0 doesn't support sdcards, because it doesn't have a controller for it." If yes, please do share a link.

Oh dear I give you onehttp://arasan.com/products/ufs/ UFS is a new controler system, it as no links at all to emmc used by other oems and so will not work with sd cards This is the tech link for emmc 5.0. http://arasan.com/products/emmc50/sd3-emmc-5-0-host/ Get back to me when you work a way to not slow down the the CPU bus to add a 2nd emmc controler for sd card at a very big cost to the oem And USB will not cut it, before you say that, due to size and the way the OS uses it
