Something that can disappoint and shock Samsung fans has surfaced amid speculations on the release date of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Note 5 Edge. It is reported that the South Korean electronics giant might do away with one of its defining features.
Samsung has changed the Galaxy Note 5 Edge codename Project Zen to Project Zero 2 (SM-G928) and will not have S Pen feature, reported SamMobile. It went on to say that the devices - Galaxy Note 5 and Note 5 Edge – will have a feature called Keyboard Cover which "might be something like a detachable keyboard case that is generally released with tablets."
Well, it's going to be a huge risk for the South Korean electronics giant to do away with the S Pen feature as Note device users are so used to it all these year. In fact, it is this feature that makes the device different from the Galaxy S series. Some note fans could be disappointed if the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 Edge model doesn't have S Pen but Samsung might come with up with a better alternative.
Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy Note 5, codenamed Project Noble, and Galaxy Note 5 Edge at the upcoming IFA event to be held in September. There were reports that the launch of the device could happen as early as July but Samsung President Shin Jong-kyun has denied the claim.
According to reports that have surfaced so far, Samsung's upcoming Note device is expected to sport a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED dual-edge curved display, come packed with 16GB internal storage and 4GB RAM, a 16 MP main camera with OIS feature and an 8 MP front snapper, and curved screen. It is expected to be powered by a strong processor (Exynos 7422) called high-density EPOP memory that "combines 3GB LPDDR3 DRAM, 32GB eMMC (embedded multi-media card) and a controller," according to Know Your Mobile.
Meanwhile, WhowiredKorea has reported citing Major IT bloggers that the Galaxy Note 5 will have a 5.89-inch screen while the Edge model will sport 5.78-inch screen, and powered by a 4100mAh battery.
