More details of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have started surfacing with its release date drawing close. A new video of the purported device has hinted a few more features expected to see in the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 successor.

The South Korean electronics giant is yet to reveal the release date of the Galaxy Note 5 but several reports have claimed that it should see the light of day at the IFA event, which is set to kick off on 4 September and end on 9. South Korean website Sogi (via GSM Dome) has claimed that the launch of the device could be advanced to August but it seems unlikely as of now.

In a new video of the purported Galaxy Note 5 by leakster @onleaks, the device looks very similar to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, reported Nowwhereelse (via GMSArena). In what could disappoint many of its fans, the renders have hinted that it would not have a Type-C USB port, microSD card slot, and removable battery though nothing is confirmed yet. 

"I think those 2 lines in the back might be the antenna and if there is no removable battery or SD card I'm moving to the LG G4 Note that's coming out," wrote a YouTube user by the name TechPimp.

"Looks like no more removable battery or SDCard for Note 5.... biggest draw back Samsung! I'll be sticking with Note 4 or move to LG," added another user.

It may be recalled that earlier leaked images have hinted aluminium frame and glass back, which means Samsung might discard removable battery and miroSD card slot.

Meanwhile, the video of the Galaxy Note 5 has revealed that it would come with a dimension of 153.4 x 77.3 x 10.2mm and perhaps an auto-ejectable S-pen. It wouldn't come as a surprise of the device comes with an ejectable S-pen as Samsung had already filed a patent application relating to its Galaxy Note.

It was earlier reported that the device might comes with features like 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7422 processor, 16 GB internal storage and 4 GB RAM, and a 16 MP camera but nothing is confirmed as of now.
