The Galaxy Note 5, as expected, features an aluminum and glass design near identical to that which debuted on the Galaxy S6 earlier this year, and it will be available in black, white, gold and silver models.
One difference is that the Galaxy Note 5's chassis comes with a slot for Samsung's S Pen stylus, allowing users to doodle and note-make on the smartphone's display, and it's unsurprisngly bigger than its S6 sibling, measuring in at 7.6mm thick and tipping the scales at 171g. Typically, there's a fingerprint scanner baked into the Note 5's home button.
Speaking of which, the Galaxy Note 5 features a 5.7in 2440x1560 QHD Super AMOLED display at its forefront, the same size as the screen on last year's model.
Under the hood you'll find Samsung's own own 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor based on a 14nm architecture and 4GB RAM. The device will ship with either 32GB or 64GB storage built-in, with Samsung opting against adding a 128GB model. This likely will disappoint many - especially given that the handset, unlike the Galaxy Note 4, doesn't have a microSD slot.
