Since the arrival of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, Note fans have been dying to find out if the Galaxy Note 5 would come with a microSD card slot or not, since Samsung’s new flagships do not offer the feature. Sadly, if a tweet is to be believed, the highly-anticipated phablet will not come with the option to add more storage space.
The tweet comes from serial leakster Evan Blass (also known as @evleaks). He reveals that the Galaxy Note 5 (internally known as “Samsung Noble’ with model number SM-N920) will sport Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core processor (four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz), a 5.66-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (QHD), 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. He says that the phablet will run Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. Unfortunately, he also says that the Galaxy Note 5 will not come with a microSD card slot, meaning you will not have the option to add more storage space when needed.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.
We’ll know which rumour is true or not on the 13th of August, at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event, where the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (rumoured larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge) are expected to make their official debut.
