Samsung Galaxy Note 5 renders show 4K display, metal and glass body

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 renders show 4K display, metal and glass body
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is still a distant September dream, but this shouldn't stop you from having an eyeful of these Note 5 renders. Just look at those god rays the handset is emitting! But overblown effects aside, the renders seem convincing. While we doubt Samsung will ever add that mark below the earpiece, the rest of the show is based on realistic expectations. 

Modeled after the Galaxy S6's metal and glass build, the Note 5 is reasonably slim at 0.31in (7.9mm) of thickness, and is configured with pro-level hardware - 4K display, up to 128GB of built-in storage, USB Type C port, fingerprint scanner, and a huge 4100mAh battery. The 4K screen is already being rumored, as Samsung Display might be ready to ship 4K OLED panels before the end of the year. Rumors also spell a dual-edge screen version of the Galaxy Note 5, again running Ultra-HD resolution.

Overall, we like what we're seeing and we wouldn't mind Samsung picking up this direction. What about you?

Might as well throw in the death ray since we're really just talking crap about crap posted so we could talk about crap. The author is likely thinking to be laughing, "Dance, monkeys, dance"

To rock the Note 5 line will have to include a Note 5 Pro version with swappable battery and SD Card slot other wise it will be just an average me too, devise.

Yeah I think it'd look better with an all-metal back. Hopefully other OEMs will just leave leather to Motorola since they're the only ones getting it right.

concepts are always beatiful... 4100mah? that sound like some fools dream. Samsung or apple will never put a big battery in their devices, only chinese can do that

My thoughts exactly. That's just unrealistic.

Chinese can put such a high capacity, because their devices will drain more battery life.

thats not true...chinese phones are very battery efficient... I have huawei media pad x1 and its great in battery life... I also have vivo xplay 3s and it is great in battery life too... whereas, I had note 4 and I sell it just 2 weeks before. It was very poor in battery life. There were some good reasons which made me choose xplay 3s over note 4, battery was one of them

Well, according to PhoneArena & GSMArena chinese phone is still way behind the korean in term of battery life. Take Xiaomi Note for example. It's only 6 hour-ish, compared to Note 4 10 hour-ish.... for the same battery size. Not to mention that Samsung Galaxy Note have the Advance Power Management that could even prolong the Note 4 battery life.

well, pratical experience is more worthy than bench mark of websites. PA and GSMarena are true but everyone is not having the same experience. My note 4 was giving me only 4 to 5 hours on screen time with power saving on and there was not fault in the device as well. I will not take an example of Xiaomi note because I didnt use that device. Take an example of Huawei Mediapad X1 and VIVO Xplay 3S, both are way better in battery life than the note 4 I had

Benchmarks standardize usage, especially tests by GSMArena. They are more reliable than flimsy anecdotes.

My gs6 battery has been fantastic. I am on my 3rd day and I am at 34%. I did turn off the location though.

yes your right. GS6 and S6 Edge has great battery life, I have seen that... my colleague rushed up for S6Edge and didnt wait for the Green S6 Edge. The black one is also very beautiful and elegent. But the Green one will be the cream of my pie. My only concern is the size, I am not fond of small phones

But I dont think Xplay 3S will get any update S:

Not true my friend. The One Plus One, THL 5000, Lenovo K3. Samsung & Apple just want you to dump your phone because the battery is dead

it costs 32 dollars to have the s6 or edge battery replaced and it costs 79 dollars for the iphone 6 battery replacement. The battery on both of the phones are not great. The battery drain issue on the s6 and edge is due to android lollipop but I think they fixed it on 5.1.1 update that they just released. I am not sure about the Iphone's battery.

When I bought a Chinese phone it came with an extra battery that said 3220 mah but it was fake, so I have hard time believing.

As time passes I like more and more that galaxy alpha and note 4 design instead of s6.

The Galaxy Alpha is gorgeous. I agree that it looks nicer but everything else goes to the GS6.

I still call BS on the 4K rumor. It's too premature to make such a leap. It's substantially higher than going from 1080p to QHD. I think mainstream manufacturers know the GPU and efficiency burden it's going to put on current technology for this year. We may see it become more commercially available at the end of 2016 though.

Exactly, those who do these type of renders doesn't have any sense at all. 7.9 MM body (that too metal) and 4100mAh battery?? WTF!!! Even my note 4 is at 8.5mm but still packs a 3220 mAh battery.
