The Galaxy Note5 is a successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 4. It packs a 5.7-inch Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of roughly 515ppi. Under the hood, it packs a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC (4 cores Cortex-A57 clocked at 2.1GHz + 4 cores Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.5GHz) and 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

It features a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS and f/1.9 aperture, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, similar to Galaxy S6 Edge+ (checkout hands on impressions and photo gallery).

With the Galaxy Note5, Samsung introduced its latest storage standard UFS 2.0. The base model will house 32GB of internal storage, and there is also a 64GB variant. Unfortunately, the new design language means no microSD slot and Samsung as yet has no plans to introduce a 128GB variant.

Other specifications include a non-removable 3,000mAh battery with fast charging and with wireless / induction charging, 4G LTE, NFC, MST, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS/ A-GPS, and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Touchwiz UI.
