Samsung fans must be anxious with the release date of the Galaxy Note 5 drawing close, which is just six days away, according to some reports.

The South Korean electronics giant hasn't confirmed the release date of the upcoming Note device but it is almost certain that it will be unveiled at the "Unpacked 2015" event to be held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, New York City, on 13 August.

The company has sent press invites to the event scheduled to start at 11:00 am PDT (08:30 pm IST).

Samsung has the tradition of unveiling Note devices at the annual IFA event in Berlin, which is scheduled to start on 4 September this year, so the Galaxy Note 5 was expected to follow suit. However, the company has sent out press invites to its "Unpacked 2015", giving a strong hint that it will be announced sooner than expected.

The South Korean electronics giant is yet to reveal anything about its upcoming device but several key details, including specifications, have been leaked over the last few weeks.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to come with features like a 5.66-inch display with 560x1440 pixels, Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC processor clocking at 4x2.1GHz+4x1.5GHz, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, 32 GB internal memory and 4 GB RAM (no microSD card), and 16 MP main camera, 5 MP front snapper, according to Evan Blass (@evleaks).

According to a report by SamMobile, the upcoming device will sport a 5.67-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 pixels, available in four colours - black, gold, silver, and white – and have a glass back, giving a hint that the company may do away with removable battery and microSD card slot.

It was earlier reported that the Galaxy Note 5 may come with features like an ejectable S-Pen, a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7422 processor, 16 GB internal storage and 4 GB RAM, 16 MP main camera, 8 MP front snapper, and 4100 mAh battery.

The specifications are not confirmed yet but it won't come as a surprise if they are seen in the device when launched, as speculations and rumours did turn true in the past.
