Samsung Galaxy Note 5 flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) Super AMOLED display with 518ppi. Under the hood is an Exynos 7422 64-bit octa-core ( 2.1GHz Cortex-A57 quad-core + 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 quad-core) processor paired with 4GB of RAM. Also on offer is 32GB/64GB internal memory.
On the photography front, it features a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture and optical image stabilization, while up front there is a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The phablet also features a 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support, and wireless charging support.
Connectivity options include single-SIM support, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and USB 2.0. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the box, wrapped under a refreshed TouchWiz UI. The new UI brings with it features like live YouTube broadcasting, and quick camera launch to name a few.
As a part of the Galaxy Note series, one of the talking points is obviously the S Pen stylus. This time around Samsung has added a new push-to-eject mechanism, which makes it much easier to remove the stylus.
