Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Edge: not just another second fiddle

 

Over the next few months Samsung will be putting the finishing touches on it Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Along with it, the second-generation Samsung Galaxy Note Edge – here on in known as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Edge, because calling it the Edge Note 2 would be absurd. This device will take on attributes from its predecessors and continue the traditions of its Galaxy brethren, aiming to create a larger edition of the Galaxy S6 Note, bringing with it the S Pen that’s made the Galaxy Note series unique over the past several years.

This next Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Edge device will be appearing at the same time as the Galaxy Note 5. This means – likely – September of 2015. In all likelihood these devices will be priced the same as last year’s Galaxy Notes, and the displays will MAYBE be 4K, but there’s just as much chance they’ll be 2K like last year.

Below you’ll see what we’ve gathered – through tips and rumors – as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and 5 Edge specifications.

Galaxy Note 5
• Display: 1440×2560 pixel Super AMOLED*
• Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or equivalent EXYNOS
• RAM: 3GB
• Battery: 3220
• Front Camera: 8-megapixels
• Back Camera: 13-megapixels (similar/same sensor as Galaxy S6)
• S Pen: Yes

*Could also be 4K – both displays have been tested.

Galaxy Note 5 Edge
• Display: 1600×2560 pixel Super AMOLED
• Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
• RAM: 3GB
• Battery: 3220
• Front Camera: 8-megapixels
• Back Camera: 13-megapixels (similar/same sensor as Galaxy S6)
• S Pen: Yes

With the Galaxy Note Edge, just one side of the display was folded down, and a larger display was used than the Note 4. For the Note 5, Samsung will likely use the same sort of technique they’ve used with the Galaxy S6 Edge, folded on both sides while it retains the same amount of pixels over the same screen area.

This will allow the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Note 5 Edge to work with the next-generation Samsung Gear VR as well.
