Just hours after giving us a clear look at the Galaxy Note 5 (and the Galaxy S6 edge+), @evleaks has given us the lowdown on the specs of Samsung’s next flagship Android phablet.
The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to offer a 5.66-inch 2560x1440 display, likely of the Super AMOLED variety, as well as a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Inside the phone will reportedly be an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (I wouldn't be surprised to see additional versions with more storage), and Android 5.1.1.
One thing you’ll notice is that there’s no mention of a microSD slot in that spec list. Yep, today’s leak backs up the reports that claim that the Note 5 will lack a microSD slot, which will be a first for the Galaxy Note series of phones. That’s definitely going to turn some folks off of the device, but if Samsung does offer multiple storage options like it did with the Galaxy S6, then at least you’ll be able to get lots of built-in storage and combine that with cloud storage.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 at an event on August 13.
