The Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge Plus are reportedly coming pretty soon, on August 12, and purported information regarding these anticipated handsets is flying around in the air, waiting for someone to reach out and pick it.
We've already heard a sound amount of rumors regarding the specs and most probably appearance of these upcoming champs, but one "tiny" hardware aspect, or rumored lack thereof, has been troubling the majority of Android fans for a long time now - will the Galaxy Note 5 come with a microSD card slot or not?
According to one of the newer leaks, the Note 5 might indeed pack such a card slot. The user-agent profile of a device with the SM-N920P model number (which is the expected one for the Sprint-bound Note 5) has been spied on Spint's own website, revealing a handful of specs - apart from the microSDXC card slot on board (up to 128GB ones will work just fine), we also get to know that the device will come with a Quad HD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, undoubtedly of the Super AMOLED type.
3GB of RAM (we've heard that the Note 5 might pack 4 gigs of RAM though), 32GB of basic storage, a 5MP front-facing selfie camera, and a 16MP rear positioned shooter. There's no mention about the chipset powering the device. We suppose that it will end up being an octa-core Exynos 7422 one.
We also seemingly have Qualcomm's new "9x35" Gobi modem on board (the chip is listed as MDM9635M in the specs). It's a Cat. 6 LTE-capable silicon paves the way for even faster data transfer speed.
The UAP of the S6 edge Plus (a.k.a. SM-G928P), which was tipped to be a stylus-devoid version of the Note 5, also popped up on Sprint's website. Its specs are mostly the same, just as we are expecting them to be in the final products.
Again, take these specs with a pinch of salt. We might know whether these will hold water in a few weeks' time.
