Samsung has announced their fifth iteration of the Note series, Galaxy Note 5. Sticking true to the original large screen and big battery form factor, the Note series truly creates a great productivity smartphone. The S-Pen is what differentiates the Note 5 from the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (Plus). The new phone comes with a larger battery, more RAM, thinner bezels and most of all a revamped S-Pen. Read further to find more about all the technical details and specs about the new Galaxy Note 5.
Even though we laid eyes on this beautiful device a while back in leaks and rumors, some features were still unknown. Samsung Pay for example, is a service coming with these devices. What’s cool is, Samsung Pay will not require specific hardware but it will work on virtually any card scanner tool that is currently in use. Furthermore, new additions in S-Pen functionality include the fact that you can now take a large screenshot with all scroll-able data rather than taking multiple and seperate frames. We don’t find the SD card functionality neither does it support removable battery which might break some hearts but Samsung has taken steps to ensure that the battery they offer lasts and doesn’t need replacement.
