We always suspected that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 won’t have a microSD slot, much like the Galaxy S6, but the latest leak puts yet another nail in the coffin – and by now, there are a lot of nails. Leaker @evleaks has posted a list of specs for the Samsung Noble, a name known to be the codename of the Note 5, that ends with the suggestion of “no SD” – it’s not particularly surprising seeing as Samsung has removed the microSD slot from all its recent devices, but we still held out hope for its larger brethren.
The other notable spec from @evleaks’ tweet is the processor, alleged to be a Exynos 7420 – this is the same chip as the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, however we’ve been hearing conflicting rumours that the Note 5 will actually have the newer Exynos 7422. Obviously, we won’t have long to find out which of these stories are correct as the Note 5 is due for announcement on August 13th, however it does suggest the possibility of different variants for different regions, which wouldn’t be unusual.
