Galaxy Note 5 rumors are picking up steam. The new flagship phablet from Samsung, which typically arrives in September during the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany, is reportedly going to hit the market as early as August in an effort to undercut Apple’s efforts with its latest iPhones in September. On Monday, a new spec was reportedly confirmed.
SamMobile said it can confirm that the Galaxy Note 5 will pack 4GB of RAM. That’s not a huge surprise given that the industry seems to be moving in that direction. The ASUS ZenFone 2 has that feature, as will the OnePlus 2 later this month.
SamMobile said Samsung will also deploy the Exynos 7422, which packs an LTE modem, the RAM, a GPU and a 64-bit processor all in one system-on-a-chip (SoC). A 5.67-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display and a premium industrial design that mimics the Galaxy S6 are also expected.
We’ll likely learn more about this phone as the alleged August announcement date nears.
