Massive Galaxy Note 5 leak points to USB-C and more

The Galaxy Note 5 is likely just a few months away and already we know a lot about the device. Thanks to regular leaks and rumors Samsung’s upcoming phablet isn’t much of a mystery, and a new report may reveal even more about the new phone.

According to Chinese site CQ.QQ, the Galaxy Note 5 will take a similar strategy as the Galaxy S6. That means a sleek design with wireless charging, but no expandable storage and a non-removable battery. The device will apparently also support the new USB-C standard, which features a reversible charging port and quicker data transfer.

Other rumored specs for the Galaxy Note 5 include a 5.98-inch 2K display, a 4100mAh battery, a new Exynos 7422 processor and an upgraded S Pen stylus. That all lines up with earlier leaks. The new report also notes that Samsung likely won’t release an Edge variant of the new phablet, though that’s not much of a surprise either.

Instead, the company is likely to announce a super-sized Galaxy S6 Edge Plus with beefed up specs and a 5.5-inch display sometime this summer. It’s possible the two devices could debut at the same time, maybe this September during the IFA expo in Berlin. Then again, it may make more sense to spread them out a bit.

Either way, it shouldn’t be much longer before we can get our hands on Samsung’s latest high-end phablets.
