Samsung Galaxy Note 5: pics of prototype leak online, S Pen mechanism unchanged

Unseen images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have cropped up online, as the clocks tick on the phone’s release in August or September.

Sourced by Nowhereelse.fr, which brought us the last major cache of leaked Note 5 photos, the snaps add more weight to reports that the fifth-gen Note takes major design cues from the Galaxy S6, while making room for a larger screen.

Interestingly, though, we also get a close-up photo of the slot where the Note range’s trademark S Pen stylus is stored.

Contrary to rumours doing the rounds that this would feature a ‘click-to-release’ ejecting mechanism, it seems that just as before users will use their fingernail to remove it.

Previous reports indicate Note 5 will run a stripped-down version of Android 5.1.1 that’s largely free of Samsung bloatware and will feature an all-metal build.

This is instead of the Note 4’s leatherette rear panel, which many feel blighted what was otherwise a superb handset.

It’s also rumoured that Samsung will drop microSD card support and rely on extra tertiary and cloud storage. However, even the deluge of leaks around Note 5 have failed to categorically confirm whether this is the case.
