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?

If these renders don't come directly from Samsung design studios, then are useless and only boost unrealistic expectations. Come the unveiling and everybody crying. Sorry to burst your bubble.

I really hope that the Note 5 will not have the glass in the back... Without a case... It will be too easy to damage the Note 5 if you drop...

If it doesn't have a microSD slot AND user-swappable battery im leaving Samsung for LG...ironically those are the same two reasons i left HTC for Samsung.

Too bad anything over 5.5 inch is a deal breaker for me or I would try a Note phone one day. Maybe the LG G4 will be a gateway.

Why 4K display? Our eyes won't notice the different perfectly. 1080p is enough for me

If you have to ask why, you clearly haven't been following much in mobile tech trends over the last few years.

I hate how the pundits and iPhone loving journalists have pushed the market in idiotic ways. The concept of build quality is total BS. The phones are obsolete in 6 months. Why should they be made from expensive materials that drive up the cost of the devices for the average consumer? I love the changeable battery of my Note 4. I was told by a Samaung employee at Best Buy that Samsung dropped the removable battery because only 5 percent of owners use more than one battery. This is probably true because people are so dumb, especially IPhone users. All Samsung has done is copy the Sony's Xperia line (which has incredible build quality) but still does not have the FM radio. Samsung should at least put the FM radio back in its units but they would rather cowtow to the carriers who thirst for our dollars through data usage.

The fact you that really think a phone is obsolete in 6 months shows how little you know. Most people talk, text, & occasionally surf the net on their phones. Name one smartphone in the last 4 years that can't do that. Not everyone is a techie who requires the latest & greatest features that most people will never use.

My not4 has to do for this year. I will wait for the Note6 next year.

I'll say it again, if there is no SD card support or no external battery, I'll consider getting the Note Edge or LG G4. Would be leaning towards LG G4.

It looks bad! Even the Note 4 looks better than this sh*t.

The note 5 will mostly likely look like a mix between the note 4 and galaxy s6. It's only logical that they redesign the galaxy note as well.

Meh. I doubt it'll have a 4K screen (as said, the technology is way too new) and if Samsung wants to keep the business power users happy with the Note line, they'll keep the swappable batteries and external storage. I love my Note 4 (first Samsung handset since my old E715), but if the Note line goes the direction of the Galaxy S line, it'll likely be my last Samsung device.

This is more Sony and less Sammy/Apple. I prefer the current Samsung design language with rounder more ergonomic edges that are cut back slightly from the corners. It feels better in the hand and is an indicator of when you are gripping it near the corner. I find that subtle cuts and contours add character to what other manufacturers have left quite bland. I also usually like Motorola back covers, leather is interesting but I'm not sure I like how it wears, but the Kevlar and nylon weave are nice and also durable.

Its for VR thing which Samsung will comeup with more mindblowing content along with this beast :) Also a 4K S-Amoled will suck equal battery as a 2K LCD so it should be Awesome :) Speaking about performance, with a beefed up SOC, it should be able to run as fast as S6 with that monster display & its pixels I'm in Sammy bring it on :)

The same can be said about the transition from 480p to 720p.
