Splendid renders and 3D printed model of the Galaxy Note 5 showcased in images, video
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.

Like what you see?

Design wise is still okay, at least still reminds me of the awesome Note 4. That was the most balanced design from Samsung.

Design doesn't matter when the choice to emulate apple makes the phone so fragile it NEEDS to be hidden behind a protective case. GLASS = FAIL NO REMOVABLE BATTER AND SD = FAIL

Note5 will be another blockbuster like Note4. Note4 is an awesome phone which is atlest 2 generations ahead of Iphone6 plus. Any chinese phone maker with the features and hardwares of Iphone6 plus will be able to sell it at 1/4th price of apple. It is really funny some idiotic guys think iphone6 is really come close to note series.

My friend Kruze... You MUST be new when it comes to the most balanced design of the Samsung Note Series. The Original Samsung Galaxy Note was, and still is the MOST balanced design to date. Since the OG-Note the Note 5 has become 7 millimeters slimmer, yet 6.3 millimeters taller, i.e. a large phone. This Note Series Phablet, is losing credibility in my opinion and becoming a large skinny phone, rather than a FAT large screen Phablet. See after the FIRST year on the market, Samsung caved in to the pressure its Phablet was too big. O.o And started "slimming" them down, width wise. Sadly. :(

The original Galaxy Note was 9.3mm - 7mm slimmer and that would be 2.3mm! Hehe. I think you meant it being 2mm+ thinner. I really do not care about it slimmer because of a fixed battery. I'd rather have a 1mm thicker Note witha removable battery. I suspect though that there is no indication nor does it make sense that the back would have a bent glass - that would be expensive to maufacture, and useless. I suspect that it will be removable and accomodates a changeable battery system.

Note 5 in black/white or S6 edge + in black/white, that is the question?

4. aegislash

I love how it's basically a reverse S6 Edge, with the curve on the back instead of the front. I was going to upgrade from my S6 Edge to this, had there been a dual-curved screen version, but it looks like that isn't happening. And while the S6 Edge Plus is very tempting, I really can't justify buying a whole new device just for an extra .6 inches of screen space. Oh well, maybe next year.

Well the s6 edge plus do have a 4gb ram, a bigger battery, hopefully lesser bloatware, and maybe there could be more tricks up its sleeves. So don't say no yet.

I like how they curved the back edges as well. Many will scream it is just a giant sized S6 viewed from the front, but that curve will most likely make the phone feel awesome in hand.

I just turned my s6 edge around in my hand and held it backwards, it really does feel good in the hand with the curved edges facing you hand.

IMO this specific design is very poor for a Note5......no differentiation at all...it is just a bigger S6 with a stylus pen.....Samsung definitely runs out of creativity

Note series never had too much differentiation in the first place

Now that I understand that quick charging does not work with USB-C im more okay with Samsung not implementing it on the Note 5. It's strange though considering that type c is capable of drawing in much more current and power. Let's just hope there is some improvement in the camera like 3 dimensional optical image stabilization like the G3 employs. Dunno, I just hope there is more to the Note 5 then just a stylus and screen size increase compared to my S6.

Wrong, quick charging does work with USB-C

Not in the case of One Plus. Which is likely what he was referring to.

Where did he say One Plus? Anyway, in the of One Plus, they settle on leaving out quick charging to cut costs It has nothing to do with the USB Type-C connector

This would be the best built Note version by Samsung. But somehow feels, this may be overshadowed by the S6 edge+. If the rumoured 4100mAh battery is true, coupled with the awesome exynos 7 octa & fantastic camera, Note 5 should be able to retain most of the Note series customers.

No doubt it's going to be an awesome performer, but it's going to be out of my budget. I'll probably be buying the Moto X unless the Nexus ends up being a really good deal.

Yeah, we've already seen the many pictures of the device. We need to know if this thing will have a SD card slot or not!

There were some pics that showed the top of the phone and the sim tray looked really long so who knows... there still could be some hope yet...

Is that a slot on the side below the volume buttons? Previous images have shown a slot on the top for the SIM card, presumably, so could this be for microSDs...? I don't want to get my hopes up. :/

apparently no micro SD or removable battery. so people looking for a future proof phone, who like to use custom roms alot with custom mods/software should look elsewhere. Sammy is basically giving us the middle finger this time around and catering to the isheep crowd.

you guys complain to much about removeable battery to storage to ram just make your own damn phone

It will be a glorious day when that is possible, but until then, Samsung should give their users what they want. Unfortunately, it appears that Samsung is only concerned with being able to make more $$$ by selling different editions with varying storage sizes (32Gb, 64Gb, 128Gb)
