Hardly anything new in this except for 4 gb ram. No 4k display, no.Usb-C,no 7422/7420 processor. What the hell were u doing all this while Samsung?? Will wait for this to be launched and buy S6 as the price drops which has same specs.
I haven't heard anything about a Type-C USB socket. USB 2.0 backups/restores of 128 GB, and even 64GB, versions of the Note 5, and the S6, with the slower speeds that come with smallish files, could take hours. It partially defeats the purpose of having large, fast UFS storage if transfers to and from other devices are going to be so slow. Even fast micro-SDs and fast micro-SD readers/writers are faster than USB 2.0.
Why is this a deal breaker? Really. Google Nexus devices have no sd slot for years and nobody complain. Why people start making a big deal out of this especially now. Just because samsung don't provide sd slot doesn't make the world ends. There is plenty other smartphone. Even Apple users never complain the absent of sd slot. Some of yiu guys even threatened not to buy samsung again and keep saying that this will flop. You know what, Samsung just couldn't make everyone understand or agree on the same thing. They don't care. There are other option out there. Why keep relying on Samsung. You guys have overly high expectation on samsung. Samsung just make smartphone that works and not smartphone made by demand of people. Beside, Samsung expect us to have 2 smartphone anyway. How many of you guys really just use samsung here? No. I have read so many comment here that keep saying they have iphone 6 and galaxy s6 along with galaxy note 4, and some even keep changing theirs with other brands every few months. You can see people here claimed that they had 'that' phone and 'that' phone and also 'this' and 'that'. If you could afford to have so many flagship then why the complain. Just throw your money and shut up or just turn on a blind eye.
No SD and only 32gb at base is a very bad move by Samsung for the Note line.
The 32gb S6 comes with 22gb (approx) usable out of the box, and the Note's firmware is usually even heavier (to incorporate extra functionality such as the S-Pen features)
If they want to ditch SD support then 64gb is the absolute bare minimum Samsung need to consider for the Note 5
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2015But why another big brand has no sd card slot, theiy sell their phones very well?did you mean HTC One M7 = no microSD card slot & non-removable battery = big failure! only fanboys bought it.
Flop Show ohhhhhh... Flop Show ohhhhhh... Flop Show tadantaw tadantaw tadantaw

One reason I was with Samsung in the first place is because of the micro SD slot. If this is true I will have to be switching to a different company.
Most likely these specs concern the S6 Edge+ who's likely to replace the Note Edge of last year.
I think the Note 5 will be announced in September as usual. Nothing to fear from announcing the 'S' version of the iPhone in the same month as expected.
Samsung following apple footsteps.... But samsung should launch the mobile with 128gb option.
Alex Mason PRIME, 01 Aug 2015OMG. It's not that the world's gonna end anyday just because someone posted "no SD".... moreThese people seem to have a meaningless life when samsung announced "no sd". I mean, why they care about samsung so much if they hate samsung. I just don't get it. Don't they know they still could just buy other brands smartphone. Its not like samsung is one and only or the last standing smartphone alive on earth.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2015you can hope but these specs are true. the engineers believe that micro sd slows phone downWhen did Samsung engineers discover this, today ?!
Why is Samsung still trying to follow Apple's philosophy? If we wanted an iPhone like device we would buy an iPhone..... We don't want an iPhone, we want our removable batteries and removable SD card's! Come on Samsung, go back to what made you a contender to start with!

2 good reasons why I think these rumoured specs could be fake:
First, beginning from the Note ll Samsung has always provided an upgraded SoC over the S device released few months earlier in the same year.
Second, impossible to ditch the external micro SD card while still keeping the standard internal device storage at the same 32 GB. This is suicidal against the current iPhones.
Samsung really killing themselves with these experiment, they are doing with main phones in line.
Deadly move sammy, not learn anything from s6.
