Although it was the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge debuted but no selling quite as quickly as Samsung have expected, the likely upcming but yet-unannunced release of the Galaxy Note 5 will be very important one for the company. With the Note lineup, Samsung may end carrying the faltering smartphone division this year, and apparently means the Note 5 has to get off to a perfect start.
No official from Samsung, but leaks will always happen and we now have some higher-resolution photographs of what appears to be of the highly-anticipated Samsung’s new larger-screened smartphone, aka Phablet. Generally to be called the Galaxy Note 5, the handset garunteed in the photographs has the rumored dual-curved glass back panel which we have been expecting as well as telltale S Pen that is now the calling card of the Galaxy Note segment.
As expected, the consrtuction of the new Galaxy Note 5 is similar to the Galaxy S6 in that it features a metal frame and glass front and back that gives the gadget a more solid appearance and feel than the plastic used historically. If these photos are to become a reality, then we have no reason tto doubt them, and the Galaxy Note 5 will be a nice looking phone indeed. With Samsung press event now set for August 13th, Galaxy Note 5 along with Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be announced at the said event.
With high-end smartphones, Samsung’s decision to opt for a more premium look and feel as competition in the larger-screen smartphone market, which has now been increased since Apple entered the party with iPhone 6 Plus in September last year. Samsung will be hoping that the Galaxy Note 5 can go toe-to-toe with Apple’s hardware. If the leaked photos are to be accurate, it certainly won’t fall short on looks.
What do you think of the new Galaxy Note 5? Highly-anticipated!
