This is probably the ultimate device leak, when someone makes public your device image renders to be used for official marketing materials. Or at least makes a better job of doing high quality renders. This looks to be what happened here with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5. If you were disappointed at the quality of the leaked images that came before, well, this is your lucky day, it seems.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 looks set to be launched at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event on August 13, 2015 at the Lincoln Center in New York City, together with the rumored Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus. The images below aren’t official, rendered by Ivo Marci (also responsible for a few iPhone 7 shots) but they do make the Galaxy Note 5 look oh-so-handsome in black, don’t you think?
The curves on the event invite looked to be alluding to the Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus, but here we are looking at a decidedly curved back plate for the Note 5. The curve gives the phablet a premium look to match the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, not like the semi-premium look of the Galaxy Note 4 when it was compared to the Galaxy S5 last year.
From what we have gathered, the phablet will sport a 5.7-inch QuadHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display, powered by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or an Exynos 7422 chipset and ably supported by 4GB of RAM. As you can see from the pictures, the S Pen is there, and we’re not really concerned how it pops out of the phone’s body. We’ll know in a week or so. For now, enjoy the images, y’all.
