Pictures of a Galaxy Note 5 prototype leaked online, is the S Pen debate settled then?

There is no shortage of leaks when it comes to new Samsung devices and the Galaxy Note 5 is getting the same treatment, we’ve already seen multiple leaked photos and renders of the upcoming handset. Today pictures of a Galaxy Note 5 prototype have been leaked online and while they don’t reveal much about the device that we don’t already know, they do offer a new perspective about the S Pen ejection mechanism that has been the subject of much debate these past few weeks.

It was first rumored that the Galaxy Note 5 is going to have an auto-eject S Pen and that made sense since Samsung has a patent on that technology, but later we heard that it’s actually going to rely on the push-to-release mechanism. If pictures of this prototype represent the truth then it appears that it’s going to be business as usual, a small curve in the frame which will let the user take out the S Pen using their finger or nail. That’s how it has always been so it won’t be a change that many had been keeping their fingers crossed for. Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 and release the device in select markets on August 21.

What do you think, is it going to be business as usual or is Samsung going to shake up things and give us a new way to extract the S Pen? Sound off in the comments section below.

More and more things we expected, are not going to be there.

Samsung really wanted to update the Note series? Or not?

Seems like the phone won’t a have 4k screen which is hugely disappointing for me personally, no need to buy the note 5 I’ll wait and see how the s7 turns out.

No removable battery (4000) , micro sd slot , IR blaster = NO need new NOTE

I guess you should make your complaints over to Samsung themselves if you’re really bothered about these things. But don’t get on people their nerves here because you feel the need to repeat everything a thousand times.

Just to mention: this website is NOT Samsung themselves. They can’t do anything for you.

Guessing that the final version might be 90% identical to that leaked image of it?

It’s pretty obvious by the pic that it will have spring loaded self eject. Mainly because it was impossible to get a nail in it, if like most guys you have none! …..but yeah…. the S pen had to be inserted in the middle of the bottom front to back for the frame and the fact the back is not removable!

Don’t give Galaxy Note 5 so much pressure,it is just a phablet, if you like,buy it;otherwise,stay away.

I have been a NoteBoy since Note II to Note 4. Note 5 is a “Nothing to see here, move along”. A no-go for me sure.

WHY DO YOU KEEP SAYING NO IR BLASTER THE S6 HAD ONE

I think s-pen will have push to release and insert mechanism, only few millimetres of s-pen will come out of the slot rest of it will be pulled out by nail or finger utilising that small curve.

That is a set of themed icons. The look of TouchWiz is not a problem anymore.

I think its time to start a thread to suggest users an alternative phone. I understand that THIS forum is for users who’d buy Samsung Note 5 anyway, no matter if it has any new features. So, what phone is suggested for users who expected a successor of the famous Galaxy Note series? Large Screen, powerful, flexible, expandable. What about the rumour that also a Galaxy Note 5 Classic will be presented, with both an SD Card and a replaceable Battery? No proof yet? Interesting that we need to discuss about how the pen ejects, just to find SOMETHING potential… Read more »

That’s easy:
– Microsoft 950 xl cityman – with pen support, removable battery, sd card and great camera;
– LG Pro 4 all as above minus the pen.

At least until next year when they will get back to their sense 🙂

That’s my plan. The 950xl. My Note Edge will be fine if I don’t like it. The Note 5 isn’t worth an entire upgrade for the same old thing.

If it comes with sd card it will lag like crap as per the note 4 due to them having to remove ufs and will be way slower, just need to put a note 4 next to an s6 to the seemhwomslow it is, before you say the note 4 does not lag, it does after 2 or 3 months

Photos and data can already be stored internally, which reduces the lag that photos on an SD card creates. Which is minor, and not as long or inconvenient as having to use a data connection for things stored in the “cloud.”

Can we record 4K movies in micro sd cards? What about burst-mode shooting? And if we can, what’s the price of a 128 GB micro sd card that can handle those things?

That only applies to idiots who have forgotten what MicroSD cards are for.

Here’s a hint: NOT TO RUN APPS.

MicroSD or Internal, a video won’t play any faster than 25fps. That’s what MicroSD cards are for: MEDIA. Not bloody apps.

And if your Note 4 starts lagging due to the MicroSD, learn how to bloody manage an Android phone. Ever heard of .nomedia files?

There won’t be anything useful that we don’t already have on the Note 4 other than themes. More ram and a faster processor is a minor detail. If speed is what people are after they should get a Nexus. That is the only device that doesn’t need more ram just to operate smoothly. Not that the Note 4 isn’t fine.

So Nexus has a Micro SD Card Slot and a removable battery?

I suggest LG G4 Stylus for you.
