    Here's another image leak to share today, and it might not make fans of the Galaxy Note series very happy. The above shot is supposedly the retail image of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 inside a third party protective case. What is most troublesome is that it appears Samsung will be using the same metal and glass backing on this device, just as it has with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. This would probably indicate a unibody design, thus no removable battery.

    Of course, we have also seen rumors of a phablet-style Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and it's possible the source of this intel confused the two devices. Maybe this leaked image is for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and the final Galaxy Note 5 design will have a removable plastic back cover. We will continue to keep a watchful eye which gives us more info on this topic. Fans of the Galaxy Note series' removable battery will probably want to keep their fingers crossed for a while...

    I wouldn't be surprised if they continued their current trends at all. The odds are good that I won't be upgrading during this generation of devices anyway since the Note 4 is still serving its purpose quite well for me, but I'll also be looking to a different manufacturer when I do upgrade next.

    I'm looking at that picture and "think" I see the S Pen but can't be sure. The image of the bottom seems to show it but that case will not be user friendly for this that want to remove the pen. Unless the rumors of the auto eject feature are true.

    Only thing(s) I dislike about Sammie is 1) home and fixed buttons taking up real estate and 2) that awful touchwiz crap. Mostly.........touchwiz tho lol

    At least the home button now doubles as the finger print scanner. Touchwiz though....I want the Note 5 for the finger print scanner but man...is it worth the interface?

    Why do they insist on putting the back and recent app buttons on the wrong side.

    Doesn't M have native finger print support? I'm sure we'll be seeing more and more devices with scanners. I wouldn't let that get you down.

    None of these photos show a non-removable back or the lack of micro sdcard support.

    I like touchwiz. It adds massive functionality that other vendors don't have. A Note without touchwiz would also not have a pen. The pen software is baked in. Y'all can have stock firmwares with less features. I will stick with the mobile office in my pocket ;)
