It seems like the release date of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is confirmed. A report has claimed that the much-awaited device would be unveiled in the second week of August before releasing it to the stores 10 days later.
The South Korean electronics giant is yet to make any official announcement on its upcoming Galaxy Note 5, but SamMobile has reported, citing insiders, that the device would be announced on 12 August and released on 21 August.
The report came after Wall Street Journal reported that Samsung was planning to release Galaxy Note 5 in August instead of the usual autumn launch.
Reports of an early launch will surprise many, as Samsung has the tradition of releasing its Note devices, including the current Galaxy Note 4, at the IFA event in Berlin. It was earlier reported that the device would be unveiled on the said event, which is scheduled to begin on 4 September.
Interestingly, SamMobile also reported that the purported Galaxy S6 edge Plus would be launched as Galaxy S6 Edge+ along with Galaxy Note 5.
According to reports, Samsung might launch two Note 5 variants - Galaxy Note 5 codenamed Project Noble with flat screen, and the Galaxy Note 5 Edge codenamed Project Zero 2 with dual-edge curved screen. It is expected to come with features like a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7422 processor, 16GB internal storage and 4GB RAM, 16mp main camera and 8mp front-snapper, and 4,100mAh battery.
SamMobile has reported citing sources that Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920) would sport a 5.67-inch Super AMOLED display with flat and 2,560x1,440 pixels screen, and come in four colours - black, gold, silver and white. It also reported that the device could come with a glass back, hinting that it might not feature removable battery and microSD card slot.
Know Your Mobile has reported that the device will be powered by a strong processor called high-density EPOP memory that "combines 3GB LPDDR3 DRAM, 32GB eMMC (embedded multi-media card) and a controller."
