Gone are the days when Samsung was capable of keeping its wares under covers until the big reveal. The Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus have been leaking profusely and now ongoing inside info purveyor Evan Blass just opened the tap a little more.
@evleaks published what appear to be press images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, along with some of the key specifications of the S Pen-sporting device.
The images don’t reveal anything we haven’t seen in various leaks and renders before, though there’s one inconsistency that cast a shade of doubt over their accuracy: the capacitive keys on the Note 5 appear to be oversized, though that’s likely just a graphical error.
Moving on to a tweet that @evleaks put out just minutes ago, specs of the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920) allegedly include an Exynos 7420 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 5.66-inch 2560×1440 display, a 16MP rear camera (likely featuring the ISOCELL sensor that Samsung unveiled earlier this week), a 5MP front camera (probably wide angle), Android 5.1.1 and no microSD card.
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.

Yes, Samsung appears determined to phase out microSD, come hell, high water, or violent fan revolt.
With a couple of weeks to go until the official debut of the Note 5, it looks like Samsung is running out of major surprises to spice up its Unpacked event – unless you consider the circular Gear A smartwatch a major device.
