    These specs are totally expected, not surprised one bit. Last year I could have called this out;

    - Higher than 1080p was coming for the Note 4, no shocker there.
    - The rumored Snapdragon 805 was eexpected for a long while.

    Other than that, just the typical one year later improvements.

    Samsung Will probably add the heart sensor on the Note 4 but imo they should leave that to the "smaller" Galaxy series.

    The fingerprint reader will be welcome I guess and hopefully tweaked/improved and I will really like a water/dust proof design ala Sony with no flapping and magnetic port.

    Can't wait

    You know there will be more Note s pen features on the way too. A new design too is expected

    Glad it's the same size but guessing a bigger battery?

    I'm more interested software wise to see if they do anything new with the stylus.

    Be very surprised if there isn't.

    Pretty damn excited for this one. I have a feeling it will come down to this vs. the 5.5" iPhone 6 (if it happens) for me come autumn. The main thing holding me back will be TouchWiz.

    Oh and if this comes out and is 6", I will buy it regardless.

    Feels transitional and nothing special. Seriously, nothing impresses me anymore. I'm jaded by all these superphones coming out every month.


    805 is beast, but it's still an outdated generation SoC, 32-bit...
    3GB RAM is weird.
    Still 16GB as a starter.
    Waste of a resolution.


    Note 5 should be OK.

    Snapdragon 810
    4GB RAM
    32GB as a starter hopefully

    But even that powerful SoC is going to be wasted on a QHD screen.

    Let's hope they keep it the same size as the Note3!

    The US Note 3 had 32gb as a starter. However, it was more expensive. A cheaper 16gb version could get more people on board (maybe it's only select markets?).

    The Note 3 is 32gb with no 16gb option if im correct so maybe this is price option.

    I have a 5s and almost a year gone yet i dont have/see anythinh 64bit

    By the time anything is optimized for 64-bit processors, I'll be on the Note 6.

    3GB is weird? What kind of dumb complaint is that?

    I can't wait either. I love the Note series. Only reason why I haven't switched to LG or nexus.
    I'm gonna guess yes since they have improvements with every new model. Plus I can't wait to see other new software and functions. Bloat doesn't bother cus I could freeze what I don't use and I'm in the more options and functions are better than none or a few.

    Of course the new Exynos is better than the old. I'm just wondering if it's really better than the 805.

    I can't remember where I read but they said yes on benchmarks but we all know about benchmarks. TBH, I prefer the new Exynos over Snapdragon but can only get Snapdragon in the US and I finance from TMO so Exynos is out of the question unless I import. The problem with importing is not enough info on if the LTE bands are compatible here in the US and I don't want to pay full price at the time of purchase since I buy on release and I'm an impulsive buyer that can't wait until prices drop lower.

    I don't see why the built in memory even matters, I only have 16GB built in on my S4 but it never bothers me because you can buy a 32GB or even 64GB microSD very cheap off Amazon anyway. 64+16=80GB.
