Back when the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge were yet to be announced, case maker Verus got its hands on the smartphones’ schematics, allowing the company to make accurate case renders of the two devices. Now it seems that the case maker has done it again. This time with the Galaxy Note 5 (renders below obtained by PhoneArena).
The renders reveal that the Galaxy Note 5 will take design cues from the Galaxy S6. This makes a lot of sense, since it’s unlikely that the Korean tech giant will move away from its current design language after the S6 and the S6 Edge were well received.
Although the Note 5 does look similar to the S6, there are a number of notable differences. One is the frame, which is slimmer on the side, but gets bigger on the top and bottom. There also a slot for the S Pen, the microphone moved to the left side of the bottom-facing speaker grill, and no more infrared blaster at the top of the frame.
Of course, since Samsung is yet to officially announce the Galaxy Note 5, take these renders with a pinch of salt.
Samsung is said to be gearing up for an early August unveiling, instead of the usual September debut at IFA 2015 in Berlin, Germany.
