The Samsung Galaxy Note 5, one of the most-awaited devices of the year, and the Galaxy S6 Edge+, will hit the stores soon. Their release date has not been revealed yet but it is very likely to happen a few weeks after the unveiling event if history is anything to go by.
The South Korean giant's flagship models are very likely to arrive in just two days. The company has sent out press invites to its "Unpacked 2015", so it is almost certain that the devices will be announced at the event on 13 August.
It was earlier speculated that Samsung might launch the Galaxy Note 5, codenamed Project Noble - with flat display - and Galaxy Note 5 Edge, codenamed Project Zero 2 - with dual-edge curved screen - at the upcoming IFA event in September. But the mobile phone maker seems to have killed the Note 5 Edge and decided to launch two other devices in August.
Expectation on the Galaxy Note 5 is huge following the stupendous success of its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 4, and other Note devices.
There are conflicting reports on the specifications of the Galaxy Note 5. It is reported that the device will feature an ejectable S-Pen and a glass back. Evan Blass (@evleaks) has claimed on his Twitter page that Samsung's upcoming device will sport a 5.66-inch display with 560x1440 pixels, powered by Exynos 7420 SoC processor clocking at 4x2.1GHz+4x1.5GHz, run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, has a 32 GB internal memory, 4 GB RAM, 16 MP main camera and 5 MP secondary camera.
However, online retailer Jarir Bookstore from Middle East has claimed in its listing of the device that it weighs 169 grams, measures 7.6mm thick, and comes in black and gold colors, according to Phone Arena.
The report went on to say that the Galaxy Note 5 will sport a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution and protected by Gorilla Glass 4, powered by Exynos 7422 SoC processor and octa-core CPU, run on Android 5.1 Lollipop, house a 32/64 GB internal memory with 128 GB capacity microSD slot, 4 GB RAM, has a 16 MP main camera, 5 MP secondary snapper and 4,100mAh battery.
A report by Phone Arena also claimed that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ weighs 156 grams, measures 6.9mm thin, sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution and protected by Gorilla Glass 4, powered by Exynos 7420 SoC, an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, and run on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It added that the device comes packed with a 32/64 GB of internal storage, 4 GB RAM, 16 MP rear camera, 5 MP front snapper, and 3,000mAh battery.
