    The next generation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was just unveiled at Samsung's latest Unpacked Event. Here are the full details:
    • 5.7-inch quad HD super AMOLED display at 518 pixels per inch
    • Exnyos 7420 processor, a 64-bit octa-core chipset
    • 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization
    • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
    • 4GB of RAM
    • 3,000mAh battery
    • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac. Bluetooth v4.2m NFC and USB 2.0
    • Samsung S-Pen
    • 7.6 millimeters thick and weighs 171 grams
    • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
    • 32 or 64GB of storage (no 128GB option)
    • Fast Wireless charging
    • Non-Removable Battery
    • No MicroSD Slot
    As you probably "noted," it turns out the Galaxy Note 5 is slightly thicker and heavier than the S6 Edge Plus. Also, just as rumored, the bad news is that the Galaxy Note 5 does not have a removable battery, and also does not have a MicroSD slot. It also looks like they discontinued the 128GB storage option.

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will become available to all four major US carriers on on August 21st. Prices will vary by carrier.

    Sidesync looks exciting. Looks like a great competitor for iPhone's Continuity and it works on both PC AND MAC.

    OH NO! Sammy just announced Wireless QuickCharge!! Empty > Full in 2 HOURS

    absolutely rediculous! How can they screw their customers with a smaller battery!!!!!!!!!! My note 4 lasts a day, but if I am traveling and using it, its not even close. If we can't take the battery out, at LEAST give us a decent batter. HOGWASH

    I'm not a huge fan of Sammy devices to begin with. So... I'm guessing that's why Sammy is touting the 'fast wireless charging' because of the smaller battery? I thought I heard in the event that they were 'better than competitor' batteries. I may have heard wrong cause I was only half listening....but I could've sworn they said something like that...

    This could not be described no other than FAIL. Even at the keynote, just from the crowds reaction, you could tell the disappointment in the crowd.
    Fast wireless charging "2 hours is not fast cheering", really, I can't fast charge while I am on the go, LOL= No one cares.
    Small "non removable" battery =Fail
    No micro SD card =Fail
    Clickable s-pen removal system, more moving parts to fail, what is so hard about pulling out the pen, never had an issue with it, so again =Fail
    4 GB of Ram, not needed =TW is the problem and it's poor Ram management system,which I can attest is horrid.

    Never been a fan of the "Note" line of phones and definitely not going to start now.

    IMO the Note 4 still seems more appealing than this. Too bad, not that I was looking to get it anyway.

    I don't understand the exclusion of a removable battery and SD card o_O Sammy always seemed to market the Note series toward business, artistic type folks with "productivity" being a top priority. Sure 64GB is a lot, but is it enough for folks that really utilize the Note to it's fullest potential? Will folks that take a ton of pictures (and don't, for what ever reason, use cloud storage) have storage capacity issues?
    Same can be said about non-removable battery ... if you're really hammering your Note for business/play/whatever, as Sammy would like you to, at least previously you had the option to throw in another battery! I know we'll have to wait for "real world" battery results, but I can see die hard Note users not being happy with a non-removable battery. I know as a former Note user (2 and 3) I don't like this one bit .... but Sammy lost me before this for other reasons, but let me now digress :)

    Guess we'll see how the sales go to see what the masses think of all of this.

    No MicroSD Slot and No 128GB version. I am sticking with my GNOTE4.
