Anyone who wants cutting-edge hardware on their oversized smartphone won’t be able to do much better than the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. SamMobile has posted a new report that confirms the Note 5 will feature 4GB of LP-DDR4 RAM and will run on a brand-new chipset called the Exynos 7422 SoC that “will be the company’s first true single-chip solution (ePOP) combining an octa-core 64-bit CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and the Shannon 333 LTE modem in the same package.”

What else can we expect from the Note 5? According to SamMobile, the device will feature a 5.67-inch Super AMOLED QHD display and will feature the same metal-and-glass design that won high acclaim with the Galaxy S6 when it released earlier this year. The device will also feature support for wireless charging that will be compatible with both WPC and PMA standards.

SamMobile’s report follows a report that came out last month claiming that the Note 5 would feature both a 4,100mAh battery and a USB Type-C port, although that report also said the device would have a 5.9-inch display, so we’d take it with a grain of salt.
