More details of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have been leaked with its release date drawing close and almost confirmed. Several leaked specifications are contradictory to each other, nevertheless it is almost certain that the upcoming device will have much superior features expected over its predecessor, Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung is yet to announce the release date of its upcoming device officially, but it is very likely to be unveiled at its "Unpacked 2015" event to be held on 13 August. The company has the tradition of announcing its Note devices at the annual IFA event, and the same was expected for Galaxy Note 5 too, but it's not going to be the case this time around.

The South Korean electronics giant is tight-lipped on its upcoming device, but several details have been leaked, hinting that it will have much superior features over its predecessor, Galaxy Note 4.

According to latest information provided by Evan Blass (@evleaks), Galaxy Note 5 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, come packed with 32GB internal memory and 4GB RAM, house a 16 MP main camera, 5 MP front snapper, and no microSD card.
