At last, real-life images of the finished Galaxy Note 5 have leaked through Droid-Life… and if they’re accurate, they confirm a lot of hopes and fears. The good? It’s basically an upsized Galaxy S6 with a stylus, including a vivid (likely 5.7-inch) display, a metal-and-glass body and a spring-loaded S Pen. And check out that curved back — this may be easier to hold than the S6 despite its larger frame. It’s also clear that Samsung has redesigned the S Pen software to fit in line with the S6 aesthetic, although it’s not certain whether the changes are more than skin deep. Spec leaks point to a hefty 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage.
The bad news? Well… it’s an upsized S6 with a stylus. That means no microSD card slot and a larger (but still so-so) 3,000mAh battery. You also won’t get tricks like the OnePlus 2’s USB Type-C port. In short, the Note 5 is shaping to be what earlier Galaxy Notes have been: a logical extension of that year’s Galaxy S design, for better or for worse. You could still see some surprises at Samsung’s big August 13th event, but it’s likely to confirm at least some of what you already knew.
