Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Details Spilled
NEW YORK — Samsung won’t officially reveal the Galaxy Note 5 until Aug. 13, but that hasn’t stopped images and specs from appearing across the Internet. New details show the phone is essentially a larger variant of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone.
Samsung made a big leap in design, materials, and manufacturing when it crafted the Galaxy S6. It dropped the flimsy plastic shells of previous generations in favor of high-quality metal and twin Gorilla Glass 4 panels. The result is a premium handset that looks and feels great.

The Note 5, Samsung’s huge, professional-grade smartphone, will adopt these same design principles, according to photos published by Droid Life. The Note 5 has the same metal frame and twin-glass materials forming the shape, though there are some changes when compared to the S6.
For example, the frame is thinner along the sides to help the phone fit better in users’ hands. The bezels along the sides of the display are incredibly thin.
The S Pen has been a core feature of the Galaxy Note devices since their debut in 2011. The stylus is hidden in the frame of the handset. In previous generations, the stylus was retrieved by pulling it out with your thumb. The photos of the Note 5 show a completely buried S Pen with no obvious way to remove it from its housing. Droid Life says the stylus is spring-loaded, meaning it will pop out when pushed.
