Add Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 to the list of rumored devices that may pack a USB-C port. A new report out of China claims the upcoming phablet will adopt the reversible charging port along with a few other upgraded specs.
Beyond its new USB connector, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to offer an upgraded processor and more storage. According to Zol.com and its inside sources, the device will pack a new Exynos 7422 chip and super fast UFS 2.0 flash memory developed by Samsung earlier this year. The report also backs up earlier claims that the Note 5 will feature a 2K 5.89-inch display along with a 4100mAh battery.
Samsung won’t officially announce the Galaxy Note 5 until later this year (likely in September), but we already have a pretty good idea what to expect. We wouldn’t be surprised to see a design similar to the Galaxy S6 with plenty of metal and glass for a high-end look. We hope the company will still include wireless charging support, even if USB-C makes the cut as well.
