Samsung Galaxy Note 5 details leak out along with its dual-edge display variant codenamed Project Zen
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are barely out of the gates, but apparently the Korean manufacturer is already thinking about the next flagship device. Care to guess what device could that be? If your answer was another member of the Galaxy Note family, then you are right. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 details have leaked out along with its dual-edge display variant codenamed Project Zen.
Galaxy Note 5 and its Edge variant could be announced at IFA in September
According to the latest report, Samsung is currently testing various components for the Galaxy Note 5, including displays and processors. The screen will be of Super AMOLED type, but the manufacturer hasn’t decided on resolution yet. It’s almost certain that Samsung won’t go below 2K, since it wouldn’t make much sense to downgrade such important parameter, but it’s also possible that we may actually see a 4K display.
The same goes for the processor – Samsung apparently has two candidates. One of them is the Exynos 7422 – an all-in-one solution which will combine the CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and modem on a single chip. The other chip being tested is the Exynos 7430 but rumor has it that it might not be ready in time for the Galaxy Note 5 launch.
The alleged Galaxy Note Edge successor is codenamed Project Zen, but unlike the original Edge, it won’t be a twin copy of the Note 5 featuring a curved display. The phablet appears to be somewhat less premium than the Note 5, though it will still be a high-end device by today’s standards. The handset is said to pack either 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch Super AMOLED dual-edge curved display, an S Pen, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor and 16GB of storage. Other features might include a 16-megapixel main camera with OIS, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
Based on the rumors, the next Galaxy Note phablet and its Edge variant seem like some pretty exciting pieces of equipment. Of course, at this point we can’t be 100% sure whether Samsung will go ahead with these particular specs or will opt for other components, since all we have for now are unconfirmed rumors and speculations. For more official details we will have to wait another few months, possibly until IFA in September, as this is when the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Project Zen device are expected to be announced.
