Annoyed with that 3000 mAh battery on the Galaxy Note 5? Then the Galaxy Note 5 Active could be the device for you as sources say the device, that is tipped for a November launch, could have a massive 4100 mAh battery.

The more durable variant of the Note 5 phablet will also be IP68 waterproof compliant and will appear on AT&T in week 46 of 2015, which puts it around November 8th.

What puts cement behind the Galaxy Note 5 Active rumour? Samsung did the exact same thing with the Galaxy S6, releasing an ‘Active’ version of the device containing a larger battery. Learning from what Samsung has done in the past also could mean that the Note 5 Active won’t have the same glass and metal design that already released Note 4 has and instead will feature a more ‘drop-friendly’ material.

Is the Note 5 Active the device for you?

    • I dunno about forever. They can always change it next year… I would be fine with it as is with no SD and non removable battery if it had the 4100mah mentioned above, even a 3500ish would have been fine. That would have guaranteed my sale.

      • What *IS* the problem with the lower capacity exactly? Because every review I’ve read so far says the battery life is the same or even a little better than the Note 4, which everyone almost universally says has great battery life. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I too always *prefer* a larger battery… but in this case it sure seems like people are making a mountain out of something that’s arguably not *even* a mole hill (note that the battery being user-swappable is a separate issue,,, I’m just talking about the capacity question).
