Samsung is expected to officially announce its forthcoming flagship phablet on 12 August at a tech event in New York.
With less than two weeks left for the official launch of the next phablet in the Galaxy Note series, folks at GSMArena have received an anonymous tip-off through a CPU-Z system info screenshot that confirms various hardware specifications of the device.
According to the leaked screenshot, the device model name is SM-N920F, which is reportedly a prototype of the international variant with 4GB RAM and octa-core 64-bit Exynos 7422 chipset on board.
It is believed that it is an improved version of the Exynos 7420 found in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Besides, the 7422 is said to be the first Samsung-made chipset to feature a modem on the same chip as the CPU and GPU.
Apart from the 4GB system memory, the Note 5 is expected to ship 32GB of internal storage. However, it is still uncertain if the device supports a microSD storage expansion slot.
As for the screen size and display resolution, the Note 5 will retain its predecessor's 5.7in QHD display panel and run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with TouchWiz UI out of the box.
