Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Specification Rumors
Following their usual trend, Samsung might be revealing their new device from the Note family, the Galaxy Note 5, sometime before the IFA which is still many months away. The almost 9-month wait till the IFA hasn’t however stopped the rumor mill and the speculations suggest that the Note 4 will be nothing in comparison to Note 5 and that is actually something which can’t be claimed lightly since Note 4 was one impressive and powerful piece of technology.
Given the recent advancements in technology and the way smartphones are becoming powerhouses, it is highly possible that the Note 5 will have enough power to be able to support up to 4K resolution as well as a camera with a massive resolution for pictures and videos.
The rumored hardware which the Note 5 will be using includes 8-core Snapdragon 810 chipset and atleast 4GB of RAM. Since the Snapdragon chipset is most famous for its ability to render high quality display so it’s highly possible that this might be close to the final specifications of the device.
Among some other rumors is one that instead of Snapdragon, Samsung might opt for Exynos 7420 SoC chipset which incorporates 4 cores of one type and 4 of another. The Snapdragon chipset however makes more sense since it is designed with the purpose of 4K in mind and at the rapid pace with which smartphone display resolutions have been increasing, it’s only natural that Samsung would go for 4K on one of its flagship devices.
The camera of Note 5 is rumored to be somewhere near 18-megapixel which obviously means a lot of storage space will be required not only for the images but also if the device is to support 4K video capture. This suggests the device will come with around 64GB of in-built storage and will allow users to expand it to well above 100GB.
These are just some of the rumors circling around and there will be plenty more till Samsung officially announces the Note 5 close to or at IFA which is set to take place on September 4th in Berlin.
