Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leaked images show front, software and stylus release method
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is all the hype right now. We have plenty of information on the new phone already, which we have compiled and shared with you on our rumor roundup, but the rumor mill is not stopping. Today’s new trio of leaked images show us a bit more of the over-sized smartphone, displaying what could be a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 prototype.
The first image gives us a glance at the front of the phone, which we seldom get to take a look at, especially with the screen turned on. One can even admire what TouchWiz will be like in the new generation Galaxy Note. The UI touts the usual colorful icons and “bubbly” experience. In addition, there are some helpful shortcuts and content on the top. Oh, and the icons in the home screen tell us this happens to be an AT&T version. This doesn’t tell us much we didn’t know, but it’s still nice to admire the gadget.
The most interesting part of this leak is the couple other photos, which showcase the stylus dock. It was previously believed the stylus would have auto-ejecting capabilities. Then rumors suggested it would be a push-to-release mechanism. These rumors were then contradicted by Korean source, which indicates the stylus release method will be similar to all previous Note handsets.
These new images do corroborate the S Pen will have to be manually removed, just as it has been in the past. There seems to be a small gap in one side of the accessory, making it possible to pull it by using a finger nail.
As it goes with all rumors and leaks, though, we would advice that you don’t hold your breath on any of this information. Details keep changing and we won’t know the definite truth until Samsung takes the stage. That should be this coming month.
