The Samsung Galaxy Note 5, which is rumoured to be launched in mid-August, will reportedly be built on a single-chip incorporating the processor, RAM, GPU, memory and an LTE modem. This is the first time the South Korean company is doing so.

The phablet will come with an Exynos 7422 SoC, incorporating a 64bit octa-core processor, and have 4GB RAM, reports SamMobile quoting sources.

The Galaxy Note 5 is also rumoured to feature wireless charging capabilities as well.

According to earlier reports, the Note 5 could feature a 5.67in Super Amoled display, sport the S-Pen and incorporate a USB Type-C port.

The Galaxy Note 5 is most likely to be released in the US, however Samsung has not yet confirmed the date of the launch.

Last week, AT&T reduced prices of the older Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge driven by its networks by as much as $200, possibly hinting that the Note 5 could be launched in August 2015.

Under the offer, the wireless carrier was providing the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge for $299.99 (£194) and $399.99 (£258) respectively, on a two-year contract.
