Samsung Galaxy Note 5 appears in gold; your index finger will be used to pry out the S Pen
An image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 shows the eagerly awaited phablet dressed up in gold. The device, along with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, is expected to be unveiled sometime in August so that it can get a head start on the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. The photo of the gold-hued Galaxy Note 5 shows off a couple of AT&T themed apps, not there was much doubt about the carrier offering the phone.

Another picture answers the question about how the S Pen will be removed from the phablet. There had been talk about an auto-eject method following a patent application made by Samsung. But that recently was shot down by anonymous sources in Korea. A picture allegedly showing the bottom of the phablet, reveals that there will be a small gap which will give you enough room to use your index finger to pry the accessory out. It looks like an auto-eject for the S Pen is at least a year away from happening.

The same photo shows that the Galaxy Note 5 will have the speaker grill, micro-USB port and 3.5mm earphone jack on the bottom, similar to where these are positioned on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Never cared what a phone I've bought looks like as long as it does everything I can possibly need. But Samsung are now taking the Apple like style over substance approach for shallow people who only care about image.

Push click mechanism would be better but hard to fix when worned out.

I just hope this doesn't expose the right bottom angle when in case.

I hate gold coloured phones but otherwise it looks fine. Basically a big S6; not that I was expecting anything else.

I guess the Note 5 is going to be Samsung's S5 disappointment this year.

Good but still uninspiring. Sticking with the S6's design huh?

Stop whining all Samsung haters. You slammed Samsung plastic design, not long ago I guess. And now Samsung has made use of premium design, you haters still criticize it. I don't really know what kind of design that fits your style, seriously.

Ahaha glass is premium? It is crap that feels like soap in hands. Samsung should make plastic back as before.

The UI is beautiful. I like vibrant colours of the new Touchwiz and also like that all the icons have the same size because in the old Touchwiz/stock Android/Sense they sometimes look like zoo.

wasn't the USB port the upside down in the leaked renders and schematics?
