Since the original Galaxy Note model was released by Samsung in 2011, it has created an all-new ?phablet? market that has served as the arena where other device makers pitch in their own entrants. But the South Korean manufacturer has largely remained a major player in this space, thanks to their Galaxy Note line that has continuously competed wildly with other rivals, even the company?s own flagship Galaxy S smartphone line.

The Galaxy Note 4 has only been in the market for a few months but a number of rumors are already surfacing about its successor, the Galaxy Note 5. Let?s discuss about some of them below.

Galaxy Note 5 specs

A lot of Samsung watchers site are suggesting that the upcoming Note phablet will likely be powered by Qualcomm?s latest and greatest Snapdragon 810 chipset, which will be paired with a generous 4GB RAM. On the other hand, renowned mobile-centric site GSM Arena reported that the Note will likely house Samsung?s own Exynos 7420 chipset, which is composed of four Cortex-A57 cores and another four Cortex-A53 CPUs.

The site also expects that the Note 4 successor will the first device to be furnished with 4K AMOLED display from Samsung. If that proves be accurate and the company indeed stayed true to the rumored 5.9-inch display size, it would amount to the unbelievably sharp pixel density of 743ppi.

To come with a rotating camera?

Another interesting rumor on the street is that South Korean powerhouse will be fitted with a very distinct camera. While IB Times forecasts that the Galaxy Note 5 will probably be equipped with an 18-megapixel main cam and a 6 or 7MP front shooter, Design & Trend has a reason to believe that the upcoming phablet will feature a rotating camera with a mighty 27-megapixel sensor. The latter also indicated that the unannounced device may be able?to capture 8K resolution video.

Galaxy Note 5 release date

Samsung has traditionally unveiled their new Note models at the IFA consumer electronics event held annually at Berlin, Germany during the fall season. As of now, we haven?t seen any sign that the company is planning to change that trend. For 2015, the IFA event is slated to run from September 4 to 9.
