It looks like the rumor mill is starting to stir for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5, though their Galaxy S6/S6 Edge has only been out for a month so it’s not uncommon for rumors to start months before final release or shortly after a company’s flagship device was released. Take Sony’s Xperia Z line for example.
Getting back to the topic on hand. There have been a few rumors roaming around stating that the next Note series phablet will come with a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution. It has also been said that they will stick with the same Super AMOLED 2K (2560 x 1440) display that the Note 4 carries. Regardless, a 4K display would be great to see on a phablet and if Samsung does choose to go with a 4K display, they will need to figure out how to keep the battery life from depleting with such high resolution. As far as the screen size goes, 5.7″ will be chosen again.
Other rumors that have been spoken about was that Samsung will be using their own processor again, either the Exynos 7422 or the Exynos 7430 that isn’t consumer ready yet. If the Note 5 does go with the Exynos 7422 processor, it will be an all-in-one processor (ePoP) combining the CPU, GPU, internal storage, modem, and RAM.
I can’t forget about “Project Zen” now can I? I’m sorry, I should have said Galaxy Note Edge 2. Screen size for this device will be either 5.4″ or 5.5″ with two curved edges on it. Screen resolution has yet to be decided, so don’t jump the gun for 2K just yet though last years Note Edge didn’t come with that screen res. Super AMOLED will stay for sure though.
Qualcomm’s own Snapdragon 808 process is said to be on board, but as to why Samsung would have their own processor in the S6/S6 Edge and Note 5, but not the Note Edge 2 seems to be a little strange. A 16 megapixel camera will be on the back of the phone while an 8 megapixel shooter will be on the front.
With all that being said, make sure you are taking all this with a grain of salt. You’ll need it for now. Are these rumors enough for you to buy the next Note/Note Edge series device? Drop a comment below or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.
