If you are like us who are eagerly awaiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 then the next thing that I am going to tell you would absolutely disappoints you so much if it would turn out to be true. Earlier today, notorious leakster Evan Blass of @evleaks gave out a family feature set which he labelled as the Samsung Galaxy Noble. Take a good read below:
Rains->Pours. Samsung Noble (SM-N920/self-reported): Exynos 7420 SoC (4×2.1GHz+4×1.5GHz), 5.66″ 2560×1440, 4GB/32GB, 16MP/5MP, 5.1.1, no SD.

Understandably, the Galaxy Note 5 that we’ve come to know of is known internally as the “Project Noble” inside Samsung and that’s how the leaked info got its label. Contrary to previous leaks however, there are some points in the leaks that would somehow need a closer attention. For instance, in the previous leak, the Galaxy Note 5 was said to include a Exynos 7422 SoC. It might still have its chances to be changed in the future prototype of the device but this kind of confirmed given the fact that our source of information came from a highly reputable source.
Additionally, what’s more shocking is that, despite Samsung’s better known feature about the Note series with microSD cards, the said upcoming Galaxy Noble/Note 5 won’t be coming with memory expansion options so in lighter terms, regardless of numerous users demand, the Galaxy Note would not include a microSD card as everyone had hope for.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5/Project Noble is expected to be unveiled this coming Samsung UNPacked event this coming August 13 in New York, a per new leaked information is concerned, the Galaxy Note 5 will include an Exynos 7420 SoC with 4-cores of 2.1 GHz processor and another 4-cores of 1.5 GHz processor together with 4 GB of RAM. It will also include a 32 GB of on-board storage.
The upcoming flagship will include the same 5.66-inch super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 resolutions. It also got a 16 Megapixel camera and a larger 5 Megapixel front camera most commonly designed for taking a selfie or take videos calls. The handset is said to get its design cues from the company’s flagship the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge and as what the new image leak tends to emphasize.
The most deal-breaking news so far for the upcoming handset is the lack of a microSD card which users gave more importance. Despite the handsets increased internal storage, most users are still holding on to the idea of extending their storage capacities from which their budget would permit. From our consumer standpoint, it looks like loyal users would be skipping the Galaxy Note 5 and hold on with their existing Galaxy Note device until Samsung could finally produce a worthy successor. Worst case scenarios would be for users to look elsewhere as an alternative to the Galaxy Note 5.
