Samsung Galaxy Note 5 edge found on HTML5test?

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 edge found on HTML5test?
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 isn't expected to be unveiled until the NFL season kicks off (with Tom Brady on the sidelines?), we've already heard that the fifth-generation of the phablet is internally referred to as Project Noble. From keeping our ear to the ground, we've also heard that the Galaxy Note 5 will also be powered exclusively with an Exynos chipset of Sammy's own making. Recently there was talk that the Exynos 7422 is being tested for use on the unit. This chip would go beyond the usual chipset and include the CPU, GPU, RAM, native storage, and a Samsung LTE modem in a single package.

Now, we would be dumbfounded, stupefied and at a loss for words if Samsung wasn't planning a Galaxy Note 5 for release this year. Thus, the device's appearance on the HTML5test website isn't earthshattering in the sense that it proves the device exists. But if legit, it could show us that the Galaxy Note 5 is in testing mode. The HTML5test measures how well a specific browser supports HTML5.

The test measured Samsung browser 3.2 on the Samsung ZenZero. This is the code name allegedly being given to the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 5 edge. This model will reportedly come with curved glass on both sides of the 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen.

The browser tallied 503, which is a very high score. To put it in comparison, a Nexus 5 using Chrome 42 with Android 5.1.1 just scored a 515 as did the same combination of Chrome 42 and Android 5.1.1 on the Pantech Vega Iron 2.

We suggest taking this story with the proverbial grain of salt. According to the HTML5test site, the data "could be fake or belong to a different browser than the one listed."


Thanks for the tip!

It is time to see some top notch tech on a Phone again. Please come soon "September" :(

I am curious how this will turn out. I have a feeling it won't live up to the hype because they went all out with the GS6 and what they did couldn't have been cheap. So I think they are going to cut back on the Note 5 since it already owns the phablet space and doesn't need a total revamp. The Note 4 was pretty sick already. I think people will be expecting another full on assault from Samsung with this but they will be holding on to that card for a rainy day.

The Note 4 is a great device, and I have no doubt the Note 5 will be, as well. However, the iPhone 6 Plus owns the phablet space, based on the numbers.

Samsung still has the biggest grip on the phablet space and to a extent LG. Apple did get big sales on the iPhone 6 plus, bUT not enough to already capture a market samsung has been exerting at for years and the sales they get shows that

What numbers? Neither Apple nor Samsung has provided us with official numbers of how many phablets they have sold. Both have only gave us the total number of phones they have sold in a quarter.

The iPhone 6plus has only been around for two quarters and has dominated both! Does Samsung have more phablets in the wild? Yes, because they have been selling them for year. Until they regain a lead while the Apple phablets exist, Apple is the leader now. Sorry, I know that's a shock, but it is what it is. This fall, the Note will be going up against the 6plus S. I expect the same results as last September.

Any official numbers to back up your fanboyish dreams? Mmmm, NOPE!! Until Apple and Samsung provide us with official numbers, you can't say that the iPhone 6+ or the Note 4 is dominanting the phablet's market.

Samsung always puts the best tech on their flagship phones, and I don't think it will be any different on the note 5.

they always put fastest processor, RAM and storage available, best screen quality, and best camera they can find.. their only problem is TouchWiz -_- (but custom ROM can fix that :P )

Touchwiz.. Even my Note 4 lollipop is better than most of the skins of other manufacturers. Gone are the days when Touchwiz sucks too bad esp its settings menu. Now, it is more neat and sophisticated. Still not a fan of the app drawer though, but because of launchers I couldnt get happier. Before I cursed too hard TW's settings menu, messaging (though I am using google messenger), Music, Gallery, Calcu, Dialer, phonebook, clock, etc.. Now they are better than almost all android skins :) I am a fan of Sony's skin before, but everything has changed :)

Yeah but with custom ROMs camera quality degrades severely, and features like the fingerprint scanner and the heart rate sensor stop working, so now more than ever OEMs need to start caring about how good their software is. In my opinion though, at least on the Galaxy S6 touchwiz is quite good! I may actually find it better looking than stock Android, which is something I never thought I would say.

I think the mobile innovation has reached its border. I've got to admit that Samsung has done a great job with the note series. I mean the things like powerful multitasking, dual window, s-pen, and fantastic battery life. I'm not going to be surprised at all if the Note 5 isn't a breakthrough upgrade from its predecessors considering they are top-dogs performers already.

i just expect faster processor, better camera, bigger RAM and Storage, since Note4 already have everything people need :-/ but it will be great if they put something special on it :D

Now likely another best available phablet, just like the Note 4 (as rated by the overwhelming majority of tech reviewers. It's the same phenomenon that's happening with the S6 in the regular sized smartphone review space).

I have the Note 3 and it wasn't a cheap device, the Note 5 I'm sure will be to expensive for most people. I'm going buy how expensive the S6 Edge is btw

I want the Note 5 with Sense UI

Thx to XDA dev', Sense 7 is already available for S6/S6E and other Samsung's devices from 5.0. (Without root)

A 5.4" screen with small bezels could actually be okay for me to use with one hand, and with a large battery and possible expandable storage I'm interested. The Note 4 is just too big for me.

PA it shows 503, as well, html5test is rather skewed giving random points to not only nonstandard html5 objects but giving custom points to Google standards too. But hey this is a tech site...

will probably cost under 300 to build and sammy will probably charge 900 to 1000 dollars to purchase..considering the s6 edge starts at $700

Not gonna convince me. A cheap Android device will never be worth buying.

But a solid, well built, powerful and functional Android device which is better than the competition from other mobile operating systems is definitely worth buying. That describes both the Note 4 and the S6 (read the reviews).
