Leaked Galaxy Note 5 retail packaging confirms specifications


There’s not much we don’t already know about the Galaxy Note 5 at this point, and now leaked retail packaging has all but confirmed the handset’s specifications ahead of its official debut next week.

The front of the Note 5’s packaging, which was leaked online from Thailand, looks just like that of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. It’s plain and simple and almost all white, except for the silver branding that confirms this is a Note 5 box for a 32GB model.

The back of the packaging is much more interesting, however, with a full list of the Note 5’s internal specifications, including a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 64-bit octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization.

Wireless charging is also built into the Note 5 as standard, as is 32GB of internal storage. Rumored features that aren’t mentioned on the box include a revamped S Pen stylus, a stunning new form factor with curved glass back, and Samsung’s latest TouchWiz software.

None of these specifications are at all surprising; they’re exactly what we’ve been hearing from the countless Note 5 rumors. However, seeing them on the back of the handset’s retail packaging makes them all the more official ahead of Samsung’s August 13 event in New York City.
