After Samsung released the latest Galaxy S flagship phone this month, all eyes are now looking forward to the South Korean company's plans for the next Note device. Reports say that the tech and consumer electronics giant will come up with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phablet, which will be released with the latest Ultra HD technology. 

This could mean that the display panel of the rumored device will be less detailed compared to 4K resolution, but it could still function well compared to the standard display of the latest devices in the market. However, several rumors say to the contrary, claiming that the new Note will come out with a 4K pixel resolution. 

Should the device be given the 4K treatment, it means that the high-end Samsung Mobile product will also come with a better processor to make it work. Allegedly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will house an octa-core Exynos and Snapdragon processors. 

Other prominent rumors about the alleged features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 are a 5.9-inch display with Gorilla Glass 5 for protection, 4 GB of RAM with 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage options, as well as an upgraded 19-megapixel read-end camera complete with optical image stabilization as well as a 4.7-megapixel front-facing camera for selfie shots. In addition, there are reports claiming that the upcoming Note 5 device will include transfer wireless charging, which is also featured in the Samsung Galaxy S6. Its battery capacity might be massive at 3700 mAh.

And since the South Korean company already revealed the curved display technology with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, it will not be surprising if they choose to release a Note 5 with a curved display as well. 

Still, there is no word yet about the actual release date of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phablet.
