Samsung looks all set to release its next flagship smartphone in its most popular Note series.
According to DigitalTimes, Samsung might launch the smartphone in the upcoming IFA 2015 event, which is set to take place in Berlin, Germany. The earlier edition, Galaxy Note 4, along with the Galaxy Note Edge variant was also released during the last year's IFA event.
Samsung Mobile president J.K.Shin denied the earlier rumours that Samsung might launch the Note 5 smartphone in July to take on Apple's most anticipated release iPhone 6s. He has also denied the rumors regarding the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge's poor performance.
According to Sammobile, Samsung might iterate the edge theory with upcoming Note devices too and might launch the Galaxy Note 5 with a curvy Edge edition. Samsung has internally named the ambitious project as Project Zero 2 with a device code name of SM-G928. The report further points out that Samsung might sacrifice the S Pen stylus and would be functionally quite similar to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
With a code name of Project Noble, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is rumoured to feature a super AMOLED display with either 2K or 4K resolution. The display is expected to be measured between 5.4 to 5.5 inches. For the performance, the Note 5 might pack an updated Exynos 7422 processor accompanied by 4GB Ram.
On the camera side the Note 5 is purported to feature a 16MP snapper with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) feature and an 8MP or 5MP camera sensor in the front.
The Edge variant of Note 5 aka Project Zero 2 is expected to feature a similar super AMOLED display with curves on both the side. This edition might come powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor and 32GB storage. On the camera front the device might feature similar 16MP+ 8M/5MP camera combination.
