Galaxy Note 5 photo leak shows Samsung’s new design


Samsung has surely ruffled some feathers this year, and they’re going to do it again at Galaxy Unpacked 2015. New Galaxy Note 5 photos have just hit the net, and while the design has changed, fans of the series are going to have to deal with a few omissions.

Today’s Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leak comes courtesy of Droid-Life, and gives us the best look at the handset we’ve had yet. It looks good and lines up with the previous leaks although it’s essentially a supersized Galaxy S6 with a stylus. Folks that have owned the previous Note will certainly notice the difference even if it isn’t quite as drastic as some leaks led us to believe. That being said, there are some changes afoot…

Along with the new Galaxy Note 5 photos comes more rumors on the specs. The phone is tipped to come with 4GB of RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, and storage options of 32, 64, and 128GB. There’s no Type-C USB port or microSD card slot, and the battery is non-removable. In a nutshell, they took several of the Note’s most popular features away and dropped the battery size 220mAh. On the plus side, it’s rumored to have an auto-ejecting S Pen…

We have no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be popular when it’s released and Sammy will move millions of units as always. It can be said that many people (myself included) get as much use from the microSD slot and swappable battery as they do the actual S Pen, so it will be interesting to see how old fans and new consumers take to the Galaxy Note 5 release.

What do you think of the new Galaxy Note 5 photos — are the design changes worth the losing expandable storage and a removable battery?

    Unless I get a good contract that gives me the 128gb version within reason, its time to move! I did warn you not to do away with the microsd Samsung, but you didn’t listen to us all and to one of your most loyal customers who’s got virtually all Samsung electronics including all the note range TWICE over for other household members! A Sad day if it’s real!

    Giving us an auto-eject S-Pen (who asked for that???) in place of an exchangeable battery (smaller??) and microSD slot is a step back in my opinion. I will not be buying the new Note offering as I have done in so many years past if this, in fact, is the case. Samsung had an opportunity to catch Apple this year and blew it.

    ???? No..no…no. Auto eject S=Pen… who cares… c’mon Samsung what is wrong with you.? I’ve upgraded from the 2 to 3 to 4 and been very happy. What have you done!!!!! The good news is the Note 4 is the very best and most useful phone I have ever used… I will keep my money this time my friends. Whoever came up with this needs to be fired. I do a lot of pictures and the SD Card is very useful for me. Each upgrade on the note improved battery life and speed and productivity. The SD card is very useful…. you really shot yourself in the foot this time my friends.
