Unusually, we’ve been hearing very little about Samsung‘s upcoming flagship phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – most of the noise around Samsung is about the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge+. So when a certain design video dropped that appears to give the Galaxy Note 5 a virtual tour, admittedly only in render form, we were extremely intrigued. And without further ado, here is the aforementioned video:
As you can see from the video, the Galaxy Note 5 takes much of its design philosophy from the Galaxy S6. One notable difference, however, is that the back of the Galaxy Note 5 is not completely flat like that of the Galaxy S6 – the Galaxy Note 5 looks to have a bit of a rounded edge which should make holding the behemoth a little bit easier. The dimensions are also given in the video (153.447×77.317×10.201), though that information means little without something to compare to – the best comparison we found is that the Nexus 6 stands 159.26mm tall, which makes the Galaxy Note 5 just a tiny bit smaller.
Perhaps the only disappointing thing about the video is that the Galaxy Note 5 doesn’t appear to have a USB Type-C port, instead opting for a traditional microUSB – it’s probably not a deal breaker for the Samsung faithful, but it does stop the Galaxy Note 5 from being futureproofed.
