The Exynos 7422 is said to be a processor, GPU, RAM and LTE modem in one chip, the device is also expected to come with 4GB of RAM, the current note 4 comes with 3GB of RAM, the handset is also expected to be Samsung’s first Android device with the new USB Type-C connector.
For storage Samsung are expected to do what they did with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the new Note 5 is rumored to come with a choice of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, as yet it is not clear whether the handset will come with a microSD card slot.

It looks like Samsung may not launch a new Note Edge version of the Galaxy Note 5, like they did with the Galaxy Note 4, the reason that they have decided not to launch an Edge version of the handset is because of the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, which will feature a similar sized display to the new Note 5.
