Galaxy Note 5 rumors have been emerging for several months now though they’ve only recently started to firm up. Samsung hasn’t announced any Galaxy Note 5 features or release date details but reports have done all the talking we need.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch date is all but confirmed for August 13th in New York City. There, the company is expected to debut a Galaxy Note 5, a Galaxy S6 Edge+ and a Gear A smartwatch. Samsung typically announces its Galaxy Note in late August or early September so this is a bit of a change.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Storage

Thus far, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors have failed to establish the exact amount of internal storage space on board the new flagship. They have, however, pointed to a potential limitation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5's design.

Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge feature premium designs but those designs came at the cost of a removable battery and microSD card slot. The Galaxy Note 5 will reportedly come with a Galaxy S6-like design and that spells doom for expandable storage.

The device will reportedly shun a microSD card slot for the first time in its history. If this sticks, it means that we'll probably see Samsung release multiple storage sizes at different price points, similar to what it did with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge both feature 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options.
