Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Rumors, Specs, Features, Concept, Price, Presales, Release Date

Samsung Galaxy Note 5
The Phablet has become the most recognized smartphone partly due in part due to its larger than life-like size as the Galaxy Note series has become one of the most popular smartphone models. When the original Samsung Galaxy Note series was first launched years ago, many consumers and analysts seemed to look the other way, and now as we look forward to the fifth installment many can’t wait to see it.

2015 will yet be another big year for Samsung smartphones as the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will feature another top choice of the year. Based on the many rumors and leaks that we have been privy to, the fifth Phablet will be bigger better, and maybe the most revered smartphone of 2015. As we look forward to yet another new release we continue to do what we do best.

The following takes an in-depth look at all the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors, specs, features, concept, price, presales, and release date info to help you get the most out of the upcoming release. The following looks at what is more and least likely to occur to help you understand just what you’ll see upon the 2015 Note 5 release.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Rumors

Rumors have been pretty consistent with precisely what we’ve been expecting to see with the new Galaxy Note 5 smartphone. Starting with the official announcement on the expected 2015 release date as well as the many concept changes, the excitement for the Note 5 is already taking off.

It has been rumored that the 2nd release of the Galaxy Note Edge will actually become the Galaxy Note 5 EdgeР’ which makes the most sense. This would make even more sense as current Samsung rumors also points to a March 2015 Galaxy S6 Edge release.

Samsung has been working on 5G technology, and has been rumored to be ready for the Note 5. Download speeds and data transfer speeds is expected to be 50% less when comparing 4G and 5G compatibility. Despite the 5G rumors being ready in 2015, this is not likely to become a reality until at least 2017.

There are also many Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors that suggest intentions on better integration with other mobile devices such as the new Samsung Galaxy Gear. As mobile devices have easily become the most widely depended upon consumer purchases, better integration would make for a better overall user experience.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Specs

Samsung is looking to hold nothing back when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 specs. Virtually every part of the new phone is expected to see an upgrade including both cameras, screen, processor, memory, and battery.

We have been hearing rumors on a 23 MP rear facing camera, 5 MP front camera, three memory options with expandable memory, and an octa-core processor running at 2.9 ghz. Expected to feature one of the best visual displays, a Super Amoled 4K display with more than 600 ppi is expected.

For a complete breakdown on the specs, the following details all we’re expecting to see.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Features

The optical image stabilization feature will make its way to the new Phablet. The OIS that was first seen in the Galaxy S5 has become one of the best features, and one that improves upon both still photos and video recording. Coupled with the 23 MP rear camera that has been rumored, the Note 5 camera may finally give Sony shooters a run for its money.

Other features that have been rumored is a waterproof design, digital zoom, fingerprint scanner, and eye sensing technology. An eye sensor is quite intriguing as it has been rumored to run alongside the fingerprint scanner and is not expected to take its place. Both would create the best security features that has yet to seen in any smartphone.

The double security feature would mean locking and unlocking the phone nearly impossible unless the owner is looking directly at and touching the phone simultaneously. The type of security enabled would be user controlled, and could be set in the settings of the phone itself.

The latest Android operating system called 5.0 Lollipop will be on all Android devices by early 2015. This would mean that the Note 5 will have the new 5.0 operating system pre-installed which will only heighten the user experience. The new OS features including graphics, less battery consumption, more intuitive controls, and social features will be complimented by the new concept. The faux surround will makes it way back and you can expect to see to two different launch day colors of black and white.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Concept

The current concept of the Note 4 is expected to be extended upon in the Galaxy Note 5 concept as the intentions of Samsung is to appeal to more customers. The Phablet was initially created to appeal to a higher end consumer base, but with declining sales over the years Samsung looks to appeal to all types of consumers.

This is where the many changes in the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 concept comes into play. For instance, the improvements in the camera and the optical image stabilization feature gives consumers what they are looking for when it comes to camera and video recording. The new OIS feature will produce some of the best looking lifelike pictures and video content.

The battery saver feature is yet another enhancement of the new concept. Maintaining the battery life for well over a day and making it easier than ever to wirelessly charge the phone in no time at all will enhance the overall capabilities. For instance, the quick charging feature will allow users to charge the phone from 0% to 50% in less than 30 minutes.

One thing that we’re patiently waiting to see is how the Note 5 concept will compare with the new Phablet on the block. The Apple iPhone 6s Plus is due to be released around the same time, and if it improves upon the iPhone 6 Plus than both will be quite comparable. As consumers look for bigger phones that are high in quality while still remaining comparable in cost, it will be interesting to see if Samsung can make it all happen.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Price

Some are saying that the price of the Galaxy Note 5 would be one of the most expensive on launch day, and for the most part, they will be right. When looking at all that the Note 5 bring in such as size, features, and compatibility, it’s easy to figure out just why. When they say you pay for what you get they are right.

The Galaxy Note 5 will top the $1000 price here in the US which will make it one of the most expensive smartphones of the year. There will be numerous price options for consumers when looking at cell phone contracts as this has become the easiest way to buy any phone without having to pay the full-purchase price.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Presales

The presales for the Galaxy Note 5 will start just before the release, and all the major carriers worldwide will feature the launch. Unlike the Galaxy Note Edge which was a limited release in some countries, the Note 5 will be released in most markets worldwide.

If the official announcement comes during the 1st week in September 2015 as expected, presales should start right after. This would mean the release should start first in larger markets in Asia such as Korea, China, and Japan. The United States will follow about one week later before making its way to European markets such as England, Germany, and France.

US customers will be able to take advantage of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 presales through all the top cell carriers. As soon as the FCC passing the inspection for the phone, carriers such as AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile will start advertising presales.

For no money down, customers will be able to take advantage of many presale offers with such plans as Sprint’s Easy Pay Plan. For instance, Sprint customers can secure the Note 5 prior to the actual release date with no money down, and a 24 month payment plan for around $32 – 35 per month. AT&T and Verizon will have a similar plan that will also feature no money down presales.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Release Date

The release date for the Note 5 is pretty certain to start in most markets in September 2015. When we take a closer look at previous releases including the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung has stayed on a pretty consistent release schedule. Many manufacturers seem to do this to help consumers with their current carrier cell phone contracts, and the same is expected with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 release date.

Here in the US we may not see the Note 5 until the end of September as it would presumably launch in Asian markets before here. Korea, Japan, and China is likely to get their first hands-on during the middle of the September which would set up release dates elsewhere soon after.
