Keep up with the constantly evolving market of smartphones with the news that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will suffer a few tweaks in a new release.
Firstly, and probably the most commendable tip that made it to the tech blogs and journals it that the new model, successor to Galaxy Note 4 will feature a USB Type C interface.
Smart move as the segment is rapidly picking up with an increased number of manufacturers choosing to include the USB Type C interface in their products.
One example would be the Chinese company LeTV which has already released three phone models that are the first to display the new ports.
Type C interface will be fully supported by the upcoming Android M, both news having been boasted Google’s exciting I/O 2015.
USB Type C interface is quite a perk in terms of charging time, battery support or properly connecting your USB cable. The new USB ports showcase a reversible design and they’re extra efficient in data transfer.
That is, if the Korean website launched rumor proves to be true. If it does and Galaxy Note 5 features the new generation USB ports, Type C, then file transfer will be performed at speeds as high as 10 GB per second. At the same time, Power Delivery would allow Galaxy Note 5 an intake of as much as 100W.
The same Korean website that launched the USB Type C interface rumor holds that according to some inside intel, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 will not be showcasing the previously rumored 4K display. Similar to Samsung Galaxy S6, as well as to Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 5 will have an integrated UFS 2.0 Flash memory and a 5.89 inch display. As for its thickness, Galaxy Note 5 is rumored to be just a little slimmer than its predecessor, Galaxy Note 4, dropping from 8.5 mm to 7.9mm.
Another fantastic tweak that would be implemented in the Samsung phablet is the 4100mAH battery as compared to the previous 3220mAH that the Galaxy Note 4 handset came with. As for the processor that would allegedly power the new Galaxy Note, the same source indicates an improved version of Exynos 7420 that is currently featuring in the Galaxy S6, titled Exynos 7422.
As for release date, the Korean source keeps quiet. Only last month, J.K. Shin, the CEO and president of Samsung Electronics came out to tarnish earlier rumors that placed the release date somewhere in July.
While taken together all the rumored perks look quite exciting, official statements are still due to confirm or deny the new features of Galaxy Note 5.
