Samsung just announced the fifth generation flagship of its phablet series, the Galaxy Note 5. JK Shin, Samsung Mobile Chief, lifted the wraps off the hotly anticipated device at the Galaxy Unpacked event in New York. The rumors were all true. Samsung did have a Note 5 and S6 Edge+ unveiling planned for August 13. The new devices would be available from August 21 while the pre-orders have already started! The Galaxy Note 5 comes with a solid metal trimming around the edges while the back is largely dominated by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Overall, the new Note 5 has the same design as the S6 and S6 Edge that were launched at the MWC this year. The front is dominated by a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 518ppi. As for the internals, the grunt is provided by Samsung's "in-house" 64-bit Exynos 7420 SoC octa-core with four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.1GHz while the other four Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz, it is coupled with Mali T-760 GPU and 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. It comes in two storage options 32GB and 64GB of internal storages. Much to our dismay (because of the design) Samsung opted out of giving a microSD card slot and also a removable battery. The Note 5 now has a non-removable 3000mAh battery with support for quick charge on both, wired and wireless charging. The device boasts of a 16MP rear camera with an aperture of f/1.9 and a dual LED flash, it also comes with OIS support. There is also a 5MP front camera with the same aperture of f/1.9. The Galaxy Note 5 runs on the latest Android 5.1.1 lollipop based on the omnipresent TouchWiz UI. As for the pricing and availability, Samsung said, "The market availability of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 will vary according to consumer needs and the specific market situation." In the US, the 32GB variant starts at $720 based on your carrier all the way up to $839 for the 64GB variant. Currently, the company hasn’t shared there plans of launching the new Galaxy devices in Asian countries. The Note 5 will be available in four colors - White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium.
