While Samsung is only hours away from launching its Galaxy Note 5 phablet alongside the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (or Edge+) smartphone, a new leak has tipped the battery details of both the handsets.
It comes from usually spot-on tipster Evan Blass, popularly known as @evleaks, who in a tweet has claimed that both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will sport 3000mAh batteries. Blass has also shared a screenshot of the battery description, which reads, “3000mAh battery life: max standby time 336 hours; max talk time 21 hours.” To recall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 packs a 3220mAh battery, Galaxy S6 includes a 2550mAh battery, and a 2600mAh battery in the Galaxy S6 Edge.
A flurry of leaked details around Samsung’s anticipated Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus have already given us a glimpse to what expect from the event.
Based on previous leaks, the Galaxy Note 5 is said to feature a 5.7-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display with a pixel density of 515ppi; 32GB internal storage; a 16-megapixel rear camera; a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 5 phablet is said to feature a USB 3.1 Type-C port. Like the Galaxy S6, Samsung is said to include its latest Exynos chip made by its 14nm process in the flagship phablet instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. The Galaxy Note 5 is also said to be 0.6mm thinner than its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 4, at 7.9mm. Most notably, the Galaxy Note 5 is said to feature no microSD card slot, and sport a non-removable battery. An earlier report hinted that the Galaxy Note 5 will feature 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. This would make the smartphone Samsung’s first to feature 4GB of RAM, if true.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, on the other hand, is said to feature a 5.5-inch display with 2K resolution and a pixel density of 534ppi; an Exynos 7420 octa-core processor; 4GB of RAM; 32GB of inbuilt storage; 16-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Additionally, The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to arrive alongside the Samsung Pay service, which was introduced during the launch of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge at MWC. Needless to say, the Apple Pay competitor is expected to be supported by the Galaxy Note 5 phablet when launched.
