The next Samsung Galaxy Note flagship is expected towards the end of the third quarter this year with a plausible début by September just in time for the IFA 2015 in Berlin. With dozens of rumors and speculations about the upcoming handset, one notable and fairly reasonable context is that the next Note handset is said to feature a USB Type-C port which will open doors to new possibilities, faster wired connectivity and manages power related features efficiently.

As we’ve already know, USB Type-C’s supports USB 3.1 that could support up to 10 Gbps of data transfer speed from a compatible electronic devices, it also features a two-way reversible plug orientation which will allow users to plug the device or the connector on either ways, so in simplest terms, we no longer need to know which way should we plug the USB cable.  Another standard feature for the USB Type-C is that is supports 1.5A and 3A currents which will improve power delivery.

Aside from the connectivity improvements, sources suggests that the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will have a slimmer profile with a 1 mm less in thickness than the current flagship and will feature a larger display that bumps into 5.89-inches and probably will be advertised as 5.9-inches. Despite numerous number of rumors, sources close to the company waved-out the possibility of a 4K display, this has given us a presumption that at least for the time being, Samsung will stick to the current 2K resolution configuration.

As USB Type-C becomes the standard for the next handheld devices and while the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 is said to support it, it has also been noted that to take advantage of the power features of the new USB specifications, the upcoming handset will include at least a 4100 mAh battery, a pretty nice improvements to the Galaxy Note 4’s 3220 mAh.

As it is usually the case, every successor of the current model tends to improvement in a lot of areas and the Galaxy Note 5 is undoubtedly takes that direction as the handset will run on the latest Android operating system available at the time of its début but as for the current internal testings, the alleged Galaxy Note 5 runs on Android 5.1.1. It’s also expected to include a number of new features with an improved S Pen Stylus which will further enhance the current features of the existing model and will have improved software features and built-in applications support.

As far as we have at the moment, the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will be running on an improved processor with Exynos 7422 and will retain the current UFS 2.0 memory support which features higher file transfer speeds and improved reliability on flash memory storage found on devices such as the Galaxy Note 4 and soon on its successor.

Furthermore, Samsung executives have accidentally revealed the arrival of the Galaxy Note 5 by September, history itself refreshes us that Samsung has a predictable timeline on releasing its flagship devices but nonetheless a welcome bits of information that will surely get users more excited to see what’s in store for the next Galaxy Note device. As we all wait and see Samsung opens the stage of the next Unpacked event, we’ll expect more information on the development to fill-in and essentially the availability of the Galaxy Note 5 in the weeks and months to come, so stay tuned for more..
