Galaxy Note 5 Could Be a Bigger Galaxy S6
This year, Samsung finally ditched its plastic design language. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge feature a glass and metal design that puts the device on the same level as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and HTC's One M9.
Of course, the change came at a cost. The devices don't come with a microSD card slot and they don't come with removable batteries. The Galaxy Note 4 comes with both of these features but it looks like the Galaxy Note 5 might not retain them.
A brand new video claims to show off what very well could be the Galaxy Note 5 design. And if it's the real deal, the Galaxy Note 5 could be a blown up version of the Galaxy S6. There's more to it than just the video. This matches previous leaks that hinted at a shift to a Galaxy S6-inspired design.
Some people are already writing off a microSD card slot on the Galaxy Note 5 and that's something you need to prepare for if you've been holding out hope.
The design that we see in the video doesn't appear to have a USB Type-C port, a feature that's been rumored for the Galaxy Note 5. USB Type-C would allow for faster data transfers. The Samsung Galaxy S6 features USB 3.0.
