As we push away from April’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge release, we’re starting to hear more about the rest of Samsung’s 2015 pipeline. We’ve already heard a ton about a rumored Galaxy S6 Active and today, we’ve heard about a supposed 5.5-inch Galaxy S6 Plus that will evidently be a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to feature a number of improvements including a large high-resolution display, a brand new Exynos processor from Samsung, an S Pen, new camera features that should make their debut alongside Samsung’s Android 5.1 update, and a release that could take place alongside Apple’s rumored iPhone 6s.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Launch Date

Samsung has yet to establish a concrete Galaxy Note 5 launch date, also known as an announcement date, though we do have some clues.

The company always uses IFA, a trade show in Berlin, to announce new editions to the Galaxy Note series. And with Samsung's J.K. Shin dismissing rumors of an early Galaxy Note 5 launch, we could see the company return to Germany for a Galaxy Note 5 launch date. 

The most recent rumors come from SamMobile and Italian site HDBlog who agree on an IFA 2015 launch for Samsung's Galaxy Note 5. IFA 2015 kicks off on September 4th which means that a Galaxy Note 5 launch date could come in and around that date. If that's true, we should see Samsung send out media invites in early August. 

An IFA Galaxy Note 5 launch isn't confirmed but if you're thinking about picking up a Galaxy Note 5 this year, that's the event/month/date to circle on the calendar.
