Galaxy Note 5 prototype allegedly leaked
The weekend leak frenzy continues, this time, with the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, the device Samsung intends to reportedly unveil earlier than expected, on August 12; also a device that has been heavily leaked/was subject to lots of reports recently. A recent case leak raises some questions about the S-Pen, while showing off the bottom of the device, which seems to match previously leaked images, as well as a recent non-official render we’ve seen.
The device you see above is allegedly a Galaxy Note 5 prototype; a mule, to be more specific (a device which often features final hardware concealed in non-final casing, in order to make real-life testing easy without revealing the looks of the upcoming phone).
The image comes from the Czech Republic, and, according to the report, this is how the Galaxy Note 5 is being tested on Czech networks, safely, without revealing the aspect of the device. Of course, there’s no way for us to verify this, so it’s up to you if you believe the report or not; we advise you to keep skeptical though.
We know to expect a Quad HD display, Exynos 7422 SoC, and 4GB of RAM, in a shell that will resemble the Galaxy S6 (or, better said, obey Samsung’s recent design guidelines). The report also speculates that, since the Galaxy Note 5 prototype is being tested in the Czech Republic, the country will likely be part of launch markets, something which conflicts with earlier reports on delayed Note 5 European availability.
