Galaxy Note 5 video render attempts to reveal phablet design
At this point, we’re probably not even two months away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, with all signs pointing to the phablet’s launch at IFA 2015 in Berlin. And while having the handset’s arrival that close over the horizon means that we’ve been hearing plenty of rumors about it, the leaks have been a little unsatisfying. After all, while we may have already seen leaks reveal upcoming hardware like the iPhone 6S, we’ve yet to similarly get a chance to check out the Galaxy Note 5 in the flesh. While we’re still not quite there yet, we may have the next best thing, as a video rendering of a supposed 3D Note 5 model offers a virtual look at the phone’s design.
That leaves us in much of the same territory as other recent Note 5 leaks, which so far have focused on case designs. While that means that size and shape may be generally accurate here (though that’s still not a certainty, with the chance this source data might be off), we could also be missing out on key design elements – things like texture and material choice that don’t come across in a format like this.
The layout here appears to conform with recent case leak, including that bottom-mounted headphone jack and what appears to be a slightly more recessed than usual S Pen holder. There’s an unmistakable Galaxy S6 direction to the look, and we’re not expecting Samsung to stray too far from its spring flagship’s design as it gets ready for this fall follow-up. We’re still anxious to check this puppy out in the flesh, but for now this video render will have to suffice to hold us over.
