While Samsung is expected to unveil the latest iterations of its flagship phones in the coming months, there are unconfirmed reports detailing the specifications of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and the Galaxy Note 5.
According to SamMobile, both the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and Galaxy Note 5 will have rather large (5.76 inch) QHD displays (2560×1440 resolution) along with fingerprint sensors under the home buttons.
While the Galaxy Note 5 will have a standard, flat display, the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will have the same curved screen and both phones are going to be lacking removable batteries or external storage.
The Galaxy Note 5, internally code-named Project Noble, is going to be the first phone powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7422 chipset which has a built-in 64-bit CPU (Octa-core), GPU, RAM and LTE modem. SamMobile’s report also says that the Note 5 will be featuring 4 GBs of LP-DDR4 RAM while Samsung dropped the 4K display idea in favor of the QHD screen.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus on the other hand (Project Zen) will have a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core CPU with 32 GB built-in storage, a 16 MP rear camera and 5 MP front shooter, a 3000 mAh battery and Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. It is also expected that Samsung will fix the Memory Leak issue in the original Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge with this new release.
Samsung typically reveals new iterations of the Galaxy Note series at IFA Berlin but there are reports that the company may be contemplating and early release for the phablet to avoid competing directly with Apple’s new iPhone.
These reports don’t give any indication as to the presence of the customary S-pen, but there is no doubt that the Galaxy Note 5 will include the S-pen.
In fact, we expect Samsung to further enhance the capability and features of the S-pen to ensure that the Note 5 provides more value than its predecessor, the Note 4, which, according to a lot of people, did not warrant an upgrade from the highly popular Galaxy Note 3.
What do you think about these rumored specs for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus? Do you think there are actually going to be tangible and noticeable real-world performance improvements with the upgraded hardware?
