The Galaxy Note 5 launch is still at least a few months away, but a new concept design has us counting the days until it arrives. A fresh batch of renders show us one artist’s concept of Samsung’s upcoming phablet, which is envisioned as a supersized Galaxy S6 covered head to toe in glass and metal.
The design appears to incorporate a metal frame similar to what we saw with the Galaxy Note 4. However, the back is no longer plastic and no longer removable. Meanwhile, the front of the device is covered in Gorilla Glass 4.
As for the specs imagined by the artist, we’re looking at a 5.9-inch 4K display, a 4100mAh battery and 64GB/128GB of storage with microSD support for an additional 256GB of space. That massive screen actually lines up with recent rumors, though it’s still far from guaranteed. As for the battery, it’s certainly possible even if it seems like a bit of a stretch.
Of course, the Note 5 should also get a fingerprint reader built into the home button just like the Galaxy S6. The device should also get an S Pen stylus, which is described as twice as sensitive as previous models in this concept design. Finally, the rumored phablet runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the latest version of TouchWiz and Samsung’s Knox security software.
Will any of this turn out to be true? It’s possible, especially since this concept design makes some pretty safe bets when it comes to both design and hardware. Samsung is expected to pack all the latest specs into the Galaxy Note 5, and we’d be surprised if it veered very far from the beautiful design introduced with the Galaxy S6 earlier this year.
We won’t know anything for sure until the new phone gets an official unveiling later this year, probably at IFA 2015 this September in Berlin. For now you can watch a video of this beautiful concept design below.
