The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is reportedly to be unveiled by the company on August 12 and till now we have been treated to several rumors, leaks and speculations about the look, design, specs, CAD drawings and renderings giving us a pretty good idea about what the upcoming phablet is going to be like. New entrant on the scene is a live photo of the much awaited Galaxy Note 5.

Czech operators have allegedly got their hands on what they claim to be a Galaxy Note 5 test dummy and its picture has made its way to the internet. A test dummy or a testbed is a prototype of the particular device which carries the same internal specs and software which the actual device is going to have. Only thing is that although the final product will have almost the same specs and features, their external design is not the final design of the product.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 -test dummy

That is the reason this photo of the alleged Galaxy Note 5 testbed shows a bulky box with sharp square corners, not at all like the elegant design which we have seen in the renders so far. The Note 5 will supposedly look somewhat like the Galaxy S6, made of metal and glass. Specs-wise, the handset is expected to feature a 5.7inch Super AMOLED display, a 7.9mm thick body, its own 64-bit Exynos 7422 SoC, a 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a 4100mAh battery and the Android Lollipop operating system.

Traditionally, Samsung has been launching its new iteration of Note in early September at the IFA trade show in Berlin. However, this year the company is apparently planning to unveil the new Note 5 much before Apple launches its new iPhone probably in mid-September.
