Sprint user-agent profiles hint at Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus specs
We have heard plenty of leaks and rumors regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus smartphones lately, and now a user agent profile has popped up on US carrier Sprint’s website. The leak seems to confirm a few expected details about the phones and reveals a few other interesting points.
Delving right on in, the model number for the Sprint Galaxy Note 5 looks set to be SM-N920P, while the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has the model SM-G928P. The specifications inside the two are apparently very similar, as we would expect.
For the N920P, we can see references to the expected 2560×1440 (QHD) display, 3GB of RAM, a 16 megapixel rear camera with 3840×2160 resolution video capabilities, a 5 megapixel front facing camera, and Android 5.1 Lollipop on board, all of which matches up with previous expectations. The screen-shot below shows the interesting bits from the UAP, just in case it goes off-line.
The SoC is not mentioned in the data for the Note 5, but there are several mentions of Qualcomm when it comes to the OS and media playback capabilities, suggesting that a Snapdragon chip may feature in this particular model. The handset will also feature a Qualcomm MDM9635M LTE modem. Previous rumors have suggested that the Note 5 may be packing a Snapdragon 808 chip, while an Exynos 7420 SoC is reserved for the S6 Edge Plus, which may have something to do with powering the display’s curved edges.
Another important point worth noting; the device on Sprint’s site comes with 32GB of flash storage but also supports an external microSD card slot for an additional 128GB of internal storage. A microSD card slot was missing from the smaller Galaxy S6 flagship, but Samsung doesn’t appear to be dropping this feature from its larger smartphones. This is sure to come as a relief to Note fans. We are expected internal memory options along the lines of the S6, such as 32GB/64GB/128GB options.
Of course, these aren’t the official specifications and they might not reflect the final product that Samsung releases. Speaking which, the latest news from Korea suggests that the release date has been moved up to August 13th, so we might not have long to wait for all of the the juicy official details.
