Note 5 might come with an auto-eject S Pen stylus, new renders reveal
The case maker render machine is in full throttle on the topic of the Galaxy Note 5's looks and dimensions, and we showed you what were probably the best 3D case renders of a Note 5 so far yesterday. Today, it is Ringke's turn to out some svelte Note 5 renderings, based on the leaked dimensions, schematics, and whatever they could grab from internal sources, as these things usually go.

The Ringke cases are already up for preorder on Amazon, with even more gorgeous Note 5 renders than what we had yesterday, but they all show something very interesting regarding the stylus. There isn't much speculation on the new S Pen functionality so far, save for the fact that Samsung just recently patented a way to edit and annotate PDF files directly on the display with it, dubbing the new feature Write on PDF

What we notice from these renders, however, is that the S Pen is flush with the surface, and there seems to be no method to pull it out the way we used to on the Note franchise, unless you push it in, and it pops up automagically. This could be an indication that Samsung will make good on its patented auto-ejecting mechanism for the S Pen, which, coupled with the alleged metal-and-glass unibody of the Note 5, should add to the premium feeling of the phablet. Alternatively, these renders might be just wishful artwork, but where's the clicky fun in that.

I think that's already been confirmed that it is a no-go. Regular mini-usb charging. The OnePlus Two will have it though.

NOTE 5 without INFRARED blaster and removable battery and micro sd slot is real failure

It is precisely because of the S pen that I would never buy a Samsung Note phone. I would never use such a pen and hate paying for features that I would never use, especially when they are so expensive.

Have you tried the pen?

Then the S6 Edge+/Plus is for you.

That's a pretty dumb reason. Who uses every single feature of their phone?

No IR blaster? I use that thing religiously!

People will get more lazy with this feature. Taking out the S-Pen with your hands manually just feels more professional and luxury, really.

It's more of a feature/gimmick for disabled - or brain damaged. What a spot-on marketing from Sammy. ROFL

It looks like the stylus isn't reversible anymore. :(

Aw, another crappy reason than the fixed battery and no memory expansion slot - no infrared remote control function. I use that a lot.

I thought the Note 5 would have at least a distinctive design from that of the S6-S6 Edge. Just like the Note 4 set apart from the S5.

Shame on you Samsung....you could at least have brought out a version with a removable battery and a slot for a micro sd card....rather than the S6 Edge...A couple of extra millimeters would not have made such a massive difference to your sensible customers...In fact they would have been more loyal towards you. ...and is it really that important to have an auto ejecting S Pen ?...Now I will have to stay with my Note 4 and Note 3 and wait for some other company to bring out a phone with a removable battery and a micro sd card....Saygus perhaps?

I would love to see it have an NFC or Bluetooth powered feature where it gives you an alarm if it detects that the stylus is more than 20cm from the fone - so that you don't lose your stylus as easily.

*********SD CARD SLOT SHOWN IN PICTURES********** In the products pictures their are two different sim card looking trays, one on the top of the device and one on the right side. If this render proves to be accurate it is likely that the Note 5 will continue the SD Card slot of the note line. *Super Excited now that it has an sd card slot* *praying the renders are accurate* (Look at picture 3 and picture 5)

Does't seem like it....easy touch volume up and volume down buttons and an on/off switch button. At the bottom there is the speaker and usb position and a position for the S Pen. Samsung does not want the customers to mess with the speedy EPOP set up they want us to learn to live with..and the sleek and sexy one piece phone with a non removable back... They are being cruel for sure and there is a likelihood of a massive loss of a loyal customer base moving away from Samsung because of their stubbornness with this issue of micro sd card slot and a removable battery. SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS....and they could have made one version of Note 5 with what the loyal customers want and the sleek version for those who like a sealed phone....Instead of a S6 edge +

Theres a ejection hole on the side and top, one should be a sim and one should be a sd card.

N5 is looking sexyyyyy, but the edge plus has my attention the most.

How auto eject? You need to push a button to eject the pen.
