The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is Finally Here
Last year, when Samsung unveiled the Note 4 Edge at a pre-IFA event, the world was shocked. No one was expecting to see a phablet with a curved display. It stood out in the crowd for its unique screen, which extends and runs over onto the right side of the device. Unlike 2014, most of the details of this year’s Note were revealed before the official unveiling. We can finally fast forward through all the rumours and leaks and find out what the Note 5 is all about. Here is the official introduction to the Galaxy Note 5:
The Note 5 was launched today in New York, at the Samsung Unpacked event along with the Samsung S6 Edge+.The Note 5 comes with a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and 16M colours, a 5.7 inches display with a 1440 x 2560 pixels, all protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The phablet runs on the Android OS, v5.1.1 (Lollipop) with a Octa core (2.1GHz Quad + 1.5GHz Quad), 64 bit, 14 nm processor. It does not have an expandable microSD slot, but comes in two variants – 32GB and 64 GB, both with a 4 GB RAM. The S-Pen this time comes at the bottom of the phone with a spring system which makes accessing it a lot more fun.
In the photography section, the Note 5 comes with a 16 MP, 5312 x 2988 pixels, optical image stabilization, autofocus, LED flash primary camera and a 5MP front camera. Other connectivity features include, Wi-Fi 802.11, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot, the Bluetooth v4.2, with GPS and NFC support.
The Galaxy Note 5 has some very interesting features that allow you to perform various tasks such as signing documents with the S-Pen on your PDF directly, instead of having to print it out. The phablet also comes with some eye-catching accessories and colours such as the silver titanium, gold platinum, black sapphire and white pearl.
