From 3D CAD drawings, supposedly of the real thing, down to cases rendered to showcase the device, Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 sure is making the rounds as of late. That's not surprising too, given how Samsung has seemingly pushed the release of its phablet from the traditional September slot at IFA in Berlin, to an earlier announcement set for August 13. With such a solid base, it was only a matter of time until a designer figured he'd wave his magical wand and conjure some professional-looking renders of what the Note 5 should end up looking like if our intel is on target.
Ivo Marić is something of a veteran when talking smartphone renders, and we see that he's lost none of his touch. In a series of Instagram uploads, the designer has released a number of slick-looking renders of the Galaxy Note 5, along with a 3D-printed model of the device that is also showcased in a short, dedicated video clip.
As you can imagine, the Note 5 renders in question are showing us a device a lot alike to the Galaxy S6 — only larger. That certainly makes sense, as Samsung is likely to stick to the new design philosophy it introduced with its flagship. In all honesty, we consider that to be a good thing, as the Galaxy S6 was a marked improvement over the rather pedestrian Galaxy S5, what with the metal frame and glass panel on the back. But we won't keep you any longer. Go ahead and jump into the slideshow below for a peek.
