    This is a prototype of the Note 5 that I am guessing the carriers get before release. Notice it has AT&T icons on it
    Looks like u gotta use your finger to get the S-Pen, but man does it look nice though

    The back doesn't look removable, so no SD slot and no removable battery. I'll keep my 3.

    Yup, she's sealed up, no sd, no removable battery, no auto-eject s-pen, gotta use the old fashioned method...fingernail

    But will still arguably be one of the top Android phones launched this year, (depending on what the nexus looks like and the "premium" LG phone coming later this year), beats the bricks off the G4 and GS6

    Not really worried here. Auto eject or not I am sure it would be easily accessible.

    Samsung has always taken the Note a step beyond and above the flagship S series release from earlier in the year. Usually with a better camera, processor, etc.

    Now, we know the note 5 is going to use a lot of the S6 specs - same processor, same cameras, etc. SO Samsung has to look elsewhere to differrentiate the note.

    We know they are jumping from 3gb to 4gb of RAM. That is nice, but it can't be the only thing Samsung has cooking in this phone. A huge 4000+ battery might be another. But, I can't help but think that there is something else too, that there is some spec that hasn't been leaked we are all going to wow over. Historically, that is what the Note has been, so I have to think Samsung will continue to do that

    I had the Note 3 for awhile then gave it to a family member and got the Turbo. The Note 3 was great! So is the Turbo but I really liked the size of the Note 3...

    The Note 5 looks sweet in those pics though!! We'll see what the specs and features turn out to be.

    Galaxy Note 5 running the CPU-Z application confirms the existence of 4GB RAM and the speculated Exynos 7422 SoC for the phablet, along with a QHD 5.7-inch display and other goodies. The model number of the device that exposed this info is SM-N920F.

    Yessss 4GB of Ram!!!
    Looks beautiful....can't wait to get this
    A bit upset they removed the IR Blaster but I can deal with it

    The S-Pen looks like a push to eject

    Very close... and yet if this proves to be true, maybe not so much.

    Looks like the S6+ will use 7420 CPU in the current S6 and the Note 5 will pack the new 7422 CPU.

    Not sure but this is what i think.

    There are a couple red flags on that CPU-Z screenshot, so I wouldn't jump to any conclusions just yet. First the pixel density for that resolution on a 5.69 screen should be around 516 ppi, not 480. Also, it shows the device running Dalvik, I'm pretty sure that was replaced with ART in Lollipop. Seems a bit suspect to me. Wouldn't be surprised if that's not just some mocked up dummy unit for the case maker (the pics are from their site), and there are no shots of that device powered on.

    CPU-Z updated there app today because it was picking things wrong for each device. This could be one of the reasons.

    How is it conflicting? Both are on the right side of the phone?

    The manner in which you would extract the s-pen, either a traditional method vs auto eject

    One has a divot to get a finger under to pull out manually, and the other does not.

    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

    Damn it. The reason I ask is because my wife's old S4's battery failed at just over 1 year old. I went to eBay and bought a replacement for a few dollars, and it worked great until we eventually sold the phone.

    I'm curious as to what would happen if a Note 5 battery failed after the 1 year warranty. Failed as in stopped holding an adequate charge, or got so hot to the point where it was very noticeable (both issues happened to our original S4 battery referenced above).

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

    Based on the images that have surfaced thus far, and the design direction Samsung appears to be going for this year, I think the answer to that is a resounding no.

    On a side note (<-- lol pun), is it just me or does the width not seem very "Notelike" in the person's hand in the first image? Maybe it's just an optical thing with the photo, or the holder has particularly large hands, but that looks slim to me.

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

    Next question, do older Notes have a tendency to drop in price from the release of a new Note?

    The cost of a Note 5 is going to set me back around $385 ($299 + tax at the full $700-ish price). If the Note 4 drops in price by $100, then it'll be a tough choice between that and the Note 5.
