It’s just a few days until Samsung’s 2015 “Unpacked” Event, and after numerous leaks and renders, a full spec sheet has been released by jarir.com. While no photos were shown (that’s for the final treat), we can get a good idea of what to expect. Don’t rely on these specs to be final, as Samsung is yet to confirm the real thing.
For the Note 5, we can expect the device to feature a Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, coming in with 1440 X 2560 pixels. The 5.7 incher will be protected by Gorilla Glass 4. On the inside, we’re expected to see 4GB RAM coupled with Samsung’s Exynos 7422, an upgrade compared to the S6’s 7420. The Octa-Core powered phone comes with either 32GB or 64GB storage wise. And yes, expect room for a MicroSD card, as the 16 megapixel shooter could make some hefty photos. The front facing camera is expected to be 5MP. Running Android 5.1, the device will weigh 169 grams and have a thickness of 7.6mm. The best part? The flagship should have a whopping 4100mAh battery.
The S6 Edge+ will have the same screen: quad HD, 5.7 inch Super AMOLED with Gorilla Glass 4. The same chipset that powers the S6 and S6 Edge, the Exynos 7420, is expected to power this one alongside 4GB RAM. The storage is again 32GB/64GB with the same camera combo, a 16 megapixel back shooter with a 5 megapixel front camera for those selfie lovers. However, under the expandable storage, it just says “Not specified”, so we may need to fear the worse and expect that it doesn’t come with a MicroSD slot. It is however said to be thinner than the Note 5, showing off a 6.9mm waistline and weighs 156 grams.
While we’re talking about the Note 5, we should also point out that Sammy has hinted at improvements to the S Pen.

While we expect Samsung to continually improve S Pen, it seems obvious they are working hard at it. Is there anything special on the way? It’d be great to see how they are innovating against competition.
