We’ve been hearing a lot about the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the phablet version of the Galaxy S6 Edge (shown below) the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Now a new report has allegedly spilled the beans on the devices’ processors.
The news comes to us courtesy of SamMobile, the source of accurate information on unannounced Samsung devices. According to the information the site has received, the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920) and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (SM-G928) will both sport 5.67-inch Super AMOLED screens with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Additionally, both will sport glass backs, suggesting non-removable batteries and the lack of a microSD card slot.
As for the devices’ processors, the Galaxy Note 5 (known internally as Project Noble) is said to sport Samsung’s Exynos 7422 64-bit octa-core processor with the Korean tech giant’s Shannon LTE modem, while the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (known internally as Project Zen) will sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor under the hood. It will also sport 32 GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation) with 4K video recording capabilities, a 5-megapixel selfie-centric front-facing camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and might come with an option to store RAW images. It is also being rumoured that it will finally come with a fix for TouchWiz RAM issues that is plaguing the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
