Back in June we heard a rumor that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 release date could be August, Samsung normally launches their new Galaxy Note at IFA in September.
Now the rumors of an earlier release date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have surfaced again, this time in a new report from the Wall Street Journal.
If the report is correct, Samsung will bring the release date of the Galaxy Note 5 ahead a few weeks and the handset will be unveiled at a press event in August. The reason Samsung is doing this it to get their new Note 5 into consumers hands before Apple launches their new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus in September.
We have heard a number of rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the handset is said to come with a 5.7 inch display with a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Samsung will apparently launch a new processor with the device, the Exynos 7422 which is a new chip that features the GPU, CPU, RAM and LTE modem, the device is also expected to come with 4GB of RAM.
The handset will share a similar design and use similar material to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the device is expected to come with fixed storage options and not feature a microSD card slot. Storage is expected to range from 32GB to 128GB, there is a small possibility that they may launch a 256GB model.
The cameras on the new Galaxy Note 5 will also get updated, we are expecting an 8 megapixel front camera which is Full HD capable and a 20 megapixel rear camera which is 4K Ultra HD capable.
There will not be an Edge version of the Note 5 this year, instead Samsung are expected to launch the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which is a larger screened version of the S6 Edge.
If the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 does launch in August, then it will probably come with Android Lollipop, as the new Android M OS is expected to launch some time in the fall, as soon as we get some more details about the device we will let you guys know.
