    Samsung has said that it costs $30 to fix the battery at an authorized location. They will replace it for you.
    "Fix the battery at an authorized location"...

    Wonderful.

    That phone is going to cost around $1,000.
    Sounds about right after tax. Note 4 with 128gb card would be about $200 less, 32gb more storage and battery options.

    Added: All along I was thinking around $100, but $200 seems more likely. Verizon for reference did not exactly break their backs to get in the 128gb S6 in stock. Price of the Note 4 128gb might make it low percent purchase and scare media users from it.

    Can this new phone support 3D video for Gear VR? If not, it's a pitty.

    Yet another look at the S-Pen port that conflicts with another, and this time they're not renders.

    The official announcement can't come soon enough.
    Exactly how do they conflict with eachother? They're the same.

    The difference is the first pic seems to show an s-pen that might have an auto eject feature or push to eject feature since there is no divot to pull it out with your fingernail (still think this device is a dummy unit) the second pic shows a more traditional style with the divot for manual s-pen removal (actual device in my opinion)

    This is acceptable. Not like a $6 replacement battery off of eBay, but not back-breakingly expensive either.

    .
    The problem is not just (or even principally) the cost, but the inconvenience. If you have to send it back to Samsung, how long will you be without your phone? And if you have to wipe it to protect privacy, how long will it take you to set it up again? Conversely, how long does it take to pop a new battery in when you have a removable battery?

    The pop out slot is way oversized for a nano-sim. Any chance that it is 2-in-1 a nano sim and microsd slot?

    It looks like that's the case. Cool!

    It's just a matter of perspective in that pic, I'm pretty sure it's only a SIM slot.

    I am wondering if the United States will even see the 128GB GNote5. From past experience the United States only got the 32GB versions of the Samsung phones. 64GB was overseas and other countries. They may give us the 64GB version this time around and 128GB everywhere else.

    Yep, the price point might mean it is an on-line order option only- if they even offer it. The S6 128gb took a while to get to market in the US for some carriers that did/do offer the 128gb.

    The S6 saw the 32/64/128. Only the Active didn't.

    I'm a bit surprised some aren't seeing it. Maybe it's more subtle than I thought, but the difference was quite clear to me.

    The IR blaster is not removed. It's that little dot opposite of the sim tray at the top of the phone. What's a big upset is there is no sd card. Although slightly disappointed with my M9 I must admit that I'm an HTC guy so I'm not looking forward to a Note 4 even though I like what the Note brings to the table.

    I think that it might be an mic.

    Ni I see exactly what you are talking about. We will just have to wait until Aug 13 to see the actual device

    It's an awfully large slot for just a SIM, wouldn't you agree? The speculation (and leaked reports) indicate it's a dual slot for both SIM and microSD cards. I'm really hoping the speculation is true.

    I think the top image has more credibility because you see more of the actual device and its not in a case. The bottom image you cannot really see the full device
    The bottom photos appears the device has some type of case attached.

    It does look large, but I still think that's most likely just how the picture was taken.

    Are you referring to the speculation from the Sprint placeholder? I thought we debunked that with the Verizon holder?

    I'm aware, but it's very obvious if you look at them that there is a distinct difference between the two, and as I've said previously, I still believe the gold phone with the manual s-pen removal to be the accurate one

    And I suspect if it gets here and every carrier has it (two big "ifs"), it will cost an arm, leg and your first born son.

    Yes. More the reason a 64GB Moto X with sd slot for $500 appears very compelling. Battery life is the apparent issue to know. I am very tempted to consider:

    1. Front facing stereo speakers
    2. Apparently very good front and back cameras
    3. With 128gb card, 64GB more storage than the Note 5 128gb at almost half the price.

    Seems too good, so why I am dwelling on battery life. There seems to always be a catch with any device. The Note 4 is first device I have owned though that had IMO the least catches
