References to the Galaxy Note 5 and its curved-edge sibling spotted on Samsung's official website
References to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and its curved-edge sibling, devices that seem to be at the center of a lot of discussion lately, were just spotted on the official Samsung website.

The source code of a support page for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge that details how the optical image stabilization mechanism could modify the position of the camera lens was found to contain reference to a couple of non-official Samsung devices. 

These devices come with model numbers SM-N920 and SM-925F. The Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge bear model numbers SM-910, and SM-915 respectively, so you can see why the SM-920 is thought to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, while the SM-925 could be its curved-edge sibling.

Unfortunately, the code offers no information on the specs. Rumors claim that the Galaxy Note 5 will come with a 5.67-inch Super AMOLED with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels (QHD), and will be powered by Samsung's in-house Exynos 7422 SoC, one that is said to integrate a 64-bit CPU, the GPU, 4 RAM, the internal storage (probably UFS 2.0), and Samsung's own "Shannon" LTE modem in a single package. Other sources claim that the Note 5 will come with a glass back and might lack a microSD card slot.

According to a couple of recent reports, Samsung plans to release the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge Plus in August instead of the traditional unveiling at IFA Berlin in September. Several analysts say that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 5 as early as possible in an attempt to get as much shelf time as it can before Apple launches the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

As with all Galaxy S and Galaxy Note handsets that Samsung launched in the past years, the company has got a lot going on the Galaxy Note 5. What was previously the company's undisputed playing field is now facing an Apple domination. After the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, two smartphones that reviewed exceptionally but did not sell in record-breaking quantities, it will be interesting to see what the company can come up with the Galaxy Note 5 series.

Before we get any posts about no sd card no sale, why is Samsung going to go out of ther way to design a chip that can included all parts of ram, modem and ufs to save on power and make the phone supper fast, are they going to add to the cost an emmc controler with big time power hog so they can support sd card reader to also help slow down the phone. Please note it slows down emmc 5.0 bandwidth so it make the new CPU doa and they best to just go with an 808 crap dragon at a cheap cost, if you need sd card support just get the G4

Hahahha Hilarious, Samsung is going with UFS 2.0 instead of emmc 5.0. emmc supports SD card, UFS doesn't support because of memory controller it uses.

ADD THE COST? Are you an idiot? The phone already costs $650+ !!!! They can give us UFS and PREMIUM DESIGN while retaining BOTH a microSD and a removable battery. Go kill yourself. Seriously.

Not having something is an iPhone feature? I guess they're copying the iPhone by not having a bottle opener, a cigarette lighter and a matter transporter.

That is Samsungs fault. They thought it would be 4 to 1. It is actually 1 to 1 S6 vs. S6 Edge sales. They can't produce enough screens.

Im not expecting a a removable battery and micros sd card slot because the note line sort of follows the s line. Judging by the renders it wont have them. Sucks

Sorry, but are there only idiots working at PhoneArena? You wrote exact the same article, but 11 hours ago. SamMobile just stole the news. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Galaxy-Note-5-may-have-the-great-selfie-camera-of-the-S6_id71473
