Samsung Galaxy Note 5: A Phablet Distinct from the Samsung S6 Edge+

Samsung Galaxy Note Series was the first handset to support split screen multitasking. This is also the series that resulted in the resurgence of stylus- operated interface. After four generations of successful Galaxy Note entries, there is still no sign of stopping for Samsung. On September of this year, Samsung will globally sell the newest addition to the Galaxy Note line.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5, as expected, will come with the newest iteration of the Stylus that Samsung developed together with Wacom. If you have an experience with past Note models, you know how intuitive the stylus is. We at are exited for the newest configuration. The stylus can recognize handwriting patterns more precisely. Does this mean that you have to work on your penmanship? Not necessarily, but it will add a new sense of user identity.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Design

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a phablet or a cross between a phone and tablet. This will have a screen display reaching up to 5.7″. The size adjustment is needed to establish identity as Samsung will also be releasing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ with a 5.5″ non-curved screen display. The Note 5 However will now include the finger recognition access that is present in the S6 Edge.

Samsung will part ways with Snapdragon Chipsets and replace them with Exynos- which the company sees as the “most compatible” and “more efficient”.  Samsung is reported to mount all the processing parts in one chipset component. That means, the processing unit, the graphics processor and the RAM will have shorter synapses, thus faster response.

Speaking of the inner machinery, the speed is built upon the combined powers of the Exynos 7420 chipset, an Octacore processor made from the combination of Quad-core ARM cortex A-53 clocked at 1.5 GHz and a Quad-core Cortex-A57 clocked at 2.1 GHz. The unit will use a Mali-T760MP8 for graphics processing and 4GB RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Color Variations

The note will not include a card slot. Insiders on the industry reports, the exclusion of the SD card is a step that is deemed necessary by Samsung to ensure optimum performance for the Note 5, and apparently the company’s subsequent flagship entries. SD cards and SD card slots could ‘potentially’ undermine the optimized data transfer and writing speed of the Note 5, according to reports.

To compensate for the lack of expandable storage, Samsung Note 5’s will be available in 32, 64 and 128GB model units. You can still store a considerable amount of multimedia data. For cameras, the Note 5 will have a 16MP primary and a 5MP front camera. It has a 3000 mAh battery pack. Based on projections and recent experiences with Samsung’s pricing, Note 5 will be sold for the same value as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, which is around Php 40,000 according to sources.
