'Galaxy Note 5' release date, specs, rumors, price: Next Note expected to make its appearance at IFA 2015 in September


Following the successful launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 last year, technophiles are eager to see what Samsung has in store for the next iteration in its Note series. While an official announcement is yet to be made, rumors suggest that the 'Galaxy Note 5' could be announced at the IFA trade show in Germany later this September.

According to a report at Gotta Be Mobile, the fall trade show has traditionally been Samsung's preferred venue for announcing its Galaxy Note devices. Apart from Samsung, several tech companies also use IFA as a venue to announce new hardware and showcase their products to interested consumers.

Based on the number of technical upgrades provided by Samsung to its flagship mobile devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 is also expected to receive simlar improvements. Rumors indicate that the company is experimenting with a Quad HD display that is capable of offering a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, and an even better option with the Ultra HD Display capable of offering a resolution of 2160 x 3840 pixels. At this point, there is still no clear indication as to whether Samsung will push through with those display specs, but the early signs have certainly been encouraging thus far.

Regarding the software platform, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to run the latest version of Android Lollipop. Another rumor, however, points to Google's new creation, the Android M, as an option that could replace Lollipop. Given the relatively scanty details available so far about the Android M OS, users are advised to adopt a wait and watch approach.

Other rumored improvements in the Note series include better camera capability, upgraded chipset, and other general improvements.
