Samsung Galaxy Note 5 retail box appears with no surprises on its specs


You’ve seen how the phone looks like, and now we get to see the retail box of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Its purported retail packaging in shrink wrap has appeared online and it gives us some confirmation on what to expect with their next big thing.

In terms of design, it is the same as the Galaxy S6/S6 edge with a plain looking box with Galaxy Note 5 written in its new Galaxy font. Interestingly the Note 5 is spelled with “Note5″ without a space in between. At the back, the specs follows what we’ve seen so far which includes a 64-bit Octa-Core processor, 4GB of RAM and a 5.7” Quad HD AMOLED display. The cameras are similar with a 16MP OIS main + 5MP front camera like the S6 and it also comes with Wireless Charging built-in as standard.



Just to recap, the Galaxy Note 5 will continue their new premium approach of using metal and glass materials for its body. As seen previously, the back features a curve glass that’s very much like the Mi Note. For the S-Pen stylus, it stows flushly into the metal frame and it appears to be ejectable with a slight push. For Malaysia, we could be getting a Dual-SIM variant as spotted recently on our Malaysian SIRIM database.

If you’re seeking for a different type of display, the Note 5 will be announced together with the S6 edge+, which is basically a phablet version of the current S6 edge. While the hardware is basically the same under the hood, it gets updated with 4GB of RAM and has a much bigger battery. Another surprise at this week’s launch is a 3rd device which could be a new tablet.

Keep it locked on to as we will be reporting live from Samsung Unpacked 2015 at New York. It’s happening at 11:00PM this Thursday, 13th August.
