Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 confirmed with 4GB RAM

After reporting some exclusive information about the screen, design, and the processor of the Galaxy Note 5, we have been able to source information about its memory and some other things.

We have received confirmation from our reliable insiders that the Galaxy Note 5 will feature 4GB of LP-DDR4 RAM. The Exynos 7422 SoC, that will debut with the Galaxy Note 5, will be the company’s first true single-chip solution (ePOP) combining an octa-core 64-bit CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and the Shannon 333 LTE modem in the same package.

Going by the previous reports, the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920) will feature a 5.67-inch Super AMOLED QHD display and an S Pen. Just like the Galaxy S6, the upcoming flagship product from the South Korean smartphone giant will feature a glass back and support for wireless charging. The wireless charging solution in the Note 5 will be compatible with WPC and PMA standards. The device will be offered in four colors; black, gold, silver, and white.

The Galaxy Note 5 was originally planned to be launched at IFA 2015, but rumours have started pouring in stating a possible early launch, possibly during mid-August. It is being speculated that this early launch is due to below par sales of the Galaxy S6 duo, and that the company wants to fend off competition from the upcoming iPhones.

I can only think of one material worse than metal for a phone’s structure, and that would be glass. Given that the odds are that Samsung will choose or other for the Note 5, I took the chance to get the Note 4 whilst prices have already been depressed by Note5 fever, before they bounce back when people realise the shattering glass truth!

Samsung is now rolling out the much-anticipated Lollipop update to all models of the Galaxy S6 located in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Norway. As for as addedfunctionality goes, this upgrade transports the latest build of the Android operating system to the handset, in addition to a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements.

All the changes you’d expect to find in the Lollipop software are bundled into this upgrade, including support for multiple accounts, improved notifications, stronger 256-bit encryption, a smoother multitasking experience and the recently-announced Material Design guidelines.

As usual, the upgrade is being rolled out in stages, but if you don’t feel like waiting for a notification confirming that it’s ready for your device to hit your unit, you could always search for the update manually. ANYBODY HEAR ABOUT THIS??????

A glass back and nonremovable battery means I won’t be trading in my note 3 for the note 5 :( some i was really looking forward to getting an upgrade. Maybe I’ll go with the note 4…

Can’t wait, but I can’t help wondering if this all in one chip solution will prove to be reliable over time…

I’m not sure if this happened with anyone else, after updating my s6 edge to 5.1.1, i got some lags here and there while using the phone, i didn’t get these lags at all on 5.0.2 and yes I did a full factory reset/ data wipe out

I dunno about alot of the folks here but what I like about removeable batteries and SD cards is the convenience for modding, traveling and heavy usage. I often have multiple third-party recovery backups (TWRP) on my SD card for different ROMs and without the ability to store these backups on a removeable card, my device is going to fill up extremely quickly (most backups are AT LEAST several gigs in size). Also, if you’ve never had the convenience of popping in a fresh 100% charged battery in less than 15 seconds after the other one is nearly dead, you may not miss it but NOTHING can replace this convenience for power users (no add-on battery pack, quick charge or whatever will make up for this). The writing is on the wall here in terms of Samsung wanting to parity the production similarities of Apple, they feel this will give them a slice of that portion of the population. However, companies often times don’t have the ability to stand back and honestly evaluate their reason for success. I have a Note 3 and selected it specifically for these abilities. Should they no longer continue, many like myself will move on to the next device that does. I hear nothing but great things about the LG G4. If they develop a stylus in their next device and some added multi-function widgets and note taking tools to their ROM, they’ll capture a majority of the power user base that bought Samsung Note series phones for those same freedoms (don’t think for a second they aren’t having high level discussions about this and won’t capitalize on that). I’m sure they’ll be watching how this plays out….

You right, I see samsung breaking its face if it keeps removing things that users got used to.

Gah, I liked the rumors that had the Snapdragon 810 as the chipset because then I wasn’t tempted to buy one. But now that it will be the newest Exynos I am really bummed. My S6 is only 3 months old dammit! ;-)

You already have a fantastic Exynos in the S6, be happy!

How does this work with a 32 bit o/s like android? A 32 bit o/s can only address 3gb of RAM…

phate89

Lollipop is 64 bit

yes i think note 5 will have 4 gigs as the cpu fully support 64 bit and it must have to be diffrent than note 4 or s6 / also s7 will have 4 gigs ram

This phone is gonna make me save €749, because based on the rumours, I don’t want it. Not excited for it, nothing…

Isn’t there really gonna be any phone this year that’s gonna push me over to really want it?! Not one single phone this year has impressed me yet. And seems like we’re gonna continue to not like anything.

So… To Shamesung, please take a look at the NOTE 4, and make one like that, but better.

4GB RAM is Actually Obvious for Note 5.. it’s 2015-16 Flagship !! Other than obvisous flagship configs, I’m hoping for a 21MP rear Shooter with 4K@60fps :D

me too 4 gigs will take fully advantages of the cpu

16MP is enough. More megapixels on a same size sensor= Worse Low Light performance.
All I want is 16MP 1.1″ Sensor,f/1.9 Aperture and Improved OIS and 4K @60 fps and smooth slow mo @120 fps.

its not problem get a phone with 21 mp and downgrade it to 16 mp in camera menu

phate89

That’s not the same thing. The pixels are still the same size. Doesn’t matter if you scale it down..

If Samsung doesn’t fix their software problems with multitasking, they might as well include 64GB of RAM and it wouldn’t make a difference.

S6 users are still waiting…

I guess it is fixed. I watched a speed test and a review the other day I am sure it is fixed.
