When Samsung revealed the Galaxy S6 earlier this year, it traded looks for convenience, introducing a sleek metal design without expandable storage or a removable battery. We were a little worried the Galaxy Note 5 would do the same, but a new leak suggests the device could hold onto at least one of those popular features.
A document spotted on Sprint’s website appears to confirm a few details about the Galaxy Note 5. The page notes that the device will feature 32GB of storage along with an external memory slot capable of holding up to 128GB of extra space. The device also appears to sport 3GB of RAM, a Qualcomm processor, a Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Some of these specs line up with what we already know, while others don’t. For example, that Qualcomm chip seems pretty fishy considering the countless reports suggesting Samsung will use the Galaxy Note 5 to push its latest Exynos processor. It’s possible some of the information here is incorrect, or the entire block of text could just be a placeholder.
We’re still holding out hope Samsung will include a microSD slot with the Galaxy Note 5. After all, if the company could offer expandable storage for the super-slim Galaxy A8 there’s no reason it can’t do the same for its flagship phablet.
Rumor has it we’ll see the Note 5 unveiled early next month so we may not have to wait much longer to find out. Until then, we’ll be on the lookout for any more news on the upcoming smartphone.
