Seemingly confirmed: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will come with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM

Seemingly confirmed: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will come with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is coming. While we're normally expecting it to show up at IFA in early September, numerous sources claim that it could be announced a bit earlier in August and later showcased at the mobile expo, which sounds a bit believable given that Samsung is trying hard to steal the spotlights from Apple and all other rivals.

Given that we are quite close to the potential announcement of the next great Samsung phablet, elaborate rumors and leaked hardware specs are already flooding us, creating a very good image of what the Galaxy Note 5 would most probably be like. We already know what chipset is the most plausible candidate to power the phablet (an octa-core 64-bit Exynos 7422 SoC); we also seem to know that it will feature the same blazing-fast storage that debuted with the Galaxy S6/S6 edge; the display size and resolution -- a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD one -- are also seemingly known.

Today, one of the anticipated features got seemingly confirmed - SamMobile is sure that the Note 5 will come with 4 gigs of LPDDR4 RAM on board. We already suspected that Samsung will go all-in in this department, given that the 4 gig RAM frontier has been already crossed by a handful of devices. 

As multi-tasking has always been one of the staples of the Note phablet line, we are optimistic that with 4GB of LPDDR4 on board the Note 5 will be another multi-tasking champion. Hopefully.

Yes it does, just not that much. Any phone will lag at some point.

So does iPhone? Personally I using an Note 3 and it does provide a good user experience at 2015. More than I can say for my iPad 3. Any way, if it does not meet your requirement just don't buy it. Personally, I will not buy a Note 5 if they don't have microSD and removable battery cause its important to me. I do buy and use an extra battery to swap around every other month. Its a bad habit but it keep my phone battery around 70-80% after a full day use. Yes, its coming to two years and my phone battery life is still that good thanks to the spare battery.

Unless they go with a glass panel on the back. Don't get me wrong, i love my gold S6 Edge, but the back is way to slippery for one hand use, and i can't imagine how bad it will be to hold a 5.7" phone with the same back. As much as i am happy with my Edge, i still miss the soft, grippy, and always clean look of the faux leather back of the Note 4.

S6 edge feels like crap in the hands. The S6 feels awesome though.

My wife and brother have the S6, and they also feel slippery in the hand. I hate putting my phones in cases, and since the Note 3 I found myself ditching cases and keeping them naked, up until thr S6 Edge. It looks great, but it isn't practical.

That screen on the edge is so damn sexy though! Haha

I have a very thin, soft gel, clear case for my s6. It makes it grippy, while still showing its beauty. $12 on amazon. Check it out, and I hate cases too. The iphone 5 changed my mind the hard way though.

S6 edge that is.

Do you have the name of the case? A link would be helpful as well. I have the spigen air Cushion case, it is good, but i hate the thick borders of the case.

as a long-time android user, i've concluded: just like windows computer, you own one, you own them all. People still have to upgrade their PCs to run the latest games, but there is no reason to upgrade android phone anymore since they are all running the same s**tty FPS and various versions of candy crushers. i think my oneplus would last me a very long-time and my next phone will most likely be an iphone

Ironically OnePlus 2, which will probably cost two times less at launch, will have the same type and amount of RAM. Guess which one will get more sales ?

Probably because it will be next to impossible to actually buy the OnePlus 2.
