In the wake of rumours surrounding an earlier launch date of Samsung's next-gen Galaxy Note, more details about the device and its curved screen model have surfaced.

Samsung has reportedly renamed Project Zen, which is said to be the edge screen variant of Note 5, to Project Zero 2. Unlike the standard Note 5, Project Zero 2 will not support S Pen functionality; the reason behind this move of Samsung's is not yet known.

However, this suggests that Project Zero 2 would be like a bigger version of Galaxy S6 Edge, according to an exclusive report by Sammobile.

Moreover, Samsung will release the Clear View and S View cases for the Note 5, with model number SM-N920, and for Project Zero 2. There is also a new accessory called Keyboard Cover, which could be like a detachable keyboard case, for the duo.

There have been rumours that Samsung might announce the new Note in July, much ahead of the widely anticipated schedule. But Samsung Mobile president Jong-Kyun Shin, officially denied the rumours. The Galaxy Note 5 and its spin-off are expected to debut at the IFA 2015.

The Note 5, internally known as Project Noble, is expected to compete with Apple's upcoming large-screen iPhone iteration known as iPhone 6s Plus, which is likely to be launched alongside the 4.7in iPhone 6s in August, followed by a market roll-out in September.

The Galaxy Note 5, in terms of hardware features, has been earlier reported to pack a 2K or, 4K Super AMOLED flat screen, an octa-core Exynos 7422 processor and S Pen. The Project Zero 2, in contrast, is expected to feature a 5.4in or, 5.5in Super AMOLED dual-edge curved screen, hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 32GB storage, 16 megapixel rear camera and a five megapixel front-facing camera.
