Samsung is widely expected to release two new phablets in the coming months, including the fifth-generation Galaxy Note flagship as well as the first ever Galaxy S phablet – currently believed to be named Galaxy S6 edge Plus. The phones should be unveiled in the very near future, but a new leak reveals many details about each of Samsung’s new Galaxy devices.
According to SamMobile’s sources, the Galaxy Note 5 will sport a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 resolution. The company also tested a 4K screen for the device, deciding to go with a 2K panel for this year.
More interestingly, the Galaxy Note 5 will be the first Samsung handset to sport an all-in-one ePoP chip that will include a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7422 processor, GPU, RAM, storage and Shannon LTE modem. The phone will have a flat display and a glass back, meaning that it’s not likely not offer users a microSD slot or access to a user-replaceable battery.
In addition to Project Noble (the Galaxy Note 5 that has model number SM-N920), Samsung is also developing Project Zen, believed to be the bigger Galaxy S6 edge Plus handset (model number SM-G928). The phone should feature a bigger dual-edge display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 4K video recording, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The phone’s Lollipop-based software will supposedly come with a fix for the TouchWiz RAM issues that are affecting existing Galaxy S6 models.
