The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one of the best-selling devices from the Korean tech giant, who are looking forward to witnessing similar response from the market with the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. The device is currently under development and is expected to launch within the third quarter of this year. If Samsung wants a rerun of last year’s success story, they will have to come up with another winning idea.
The Galaxy Note 4 was praised by the critics and users for varied reasons including its impressive technical configuration and brilliant design even though it was on the higher side of the price range. Samsung recognizes these traits and should be able to work on making a few necessary improvements to reign in the customers.
The detailed spec-sheet is yet to be confirmed, although, it is estimated that this device features Samsung’s latest 4k resolution display technology as opposed to the Note 4’s HD display. Another rumor claims that Samsung is planning to introduce a larger variant of the Note 5, tagged the Note 5 Edge, sporting similar features.
Initial speculations suggest that Samsung could be using a 21MP primary lens on the Galaxy Note 5, along with a 5 MP secondary lens. This is a welcome change as the only thing lacking on the Note Series was a decent camera. Samsung has made a considerable amount of changes to their Galaxy range of products, and it would be safe to assume that the same has been carried on to the Note range.
Initial speculations claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 can be paired with the Virtual Reality headset from Oculus, named Gear VR, which is also slated to release sometime this year, alongside the Galaxy Note 5.
The Note 5 features a 5.9-inch 4K AMOLED display and is capable of handling 2,160 x 3,840 pixel resolutions along with 733 ppi density. It is rumored to be powered by a 3.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor or a 7420 Exynos chipset. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is also expected to feature either a 4GB or 8GB RAM and will be available in 32 and 64 GB built-in memory versions.
