Samsung has released a few devices this year, including Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. It is reported that the Korean technology company is going to release another device, Galaxy Note 5 before the end of the year. Unfortunately, despite the rumor of an edge display version, Galaxy Note 5 is leaked to be released without the “Edge” version unlike Samsung Galaxy S6. If the rumors turned out to be true, we will not see two versions of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 but we will only see 1 version of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 with the normal squarish display shape.
What is the “Edge” part of the display screen supposed to do? The “Edge” part of the screen is supposed to show additional information such as favorite apps or running apps or notifications and we could see it from the side of the smartphone. Therefore, if the smartphone vibrate or ring and it is located at the edge of the table, far enough for us to see the screen on top but near enough for us to see the edge, and then we can see the notification without having to lift the devices from the table.
According to various sources, Galaxy Note 5 will feature 5.89-inch QHD display screen with 2560 x 1440 resolutions. It will be 7.9mm thick and will be running on Samsung’s latest processor, Exynos 7422 SoC. On top of that it will come with S-Pen like the previous versions of Samsung devices. There will be dual SIM variants for certain regions. Currently, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is tested on Android 5.1.1 with TouchWiz, however, there is no information of the Android OS version which is going to be pre-installed on the device when it is released to public.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to be released in September.
