Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leaks in pictures; reveals 3,000mAh battery, customisable Air Command menu, and more

Samsung is all set to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 at its Galaxy Unpacked event next week, but that has not stopped the leaks surrounding the device. 

Today’s leak comes courtesy of Droid-Life, whose source have sent them some hands-on images of the Galaxy Note 5. From the pictures, it is clear that Samsung’s upcoming phablet will follow a design language that is very similar to the Galaxy S6, though Samsung does seem to have tweaked the back edges of the handset to give them a curve, which should help with ergonomics.

Additionally, the source of the leak reveals that the Galaxy Note 5 is going to come with a 3,000mAh battery, 4GB RAM, no microSD card slot, and will be available in 32/64/128GB storage options. The inclusion of a 3,000mAh battery means that the Note 5 will come with a battery that is smaller than the removable 3,200mAh battery found in its predecessor, which can negatively affect its battery life.

Finally, one of the pictures also gives us a clear look at the new Air Command menu that Samsung will be including on the Galaxy Note 5. The new Air menu will likely allow users to set any shortcut they like, as evident by the presence of an Instagram shortcut shown in the image.

What do you think about the Galaxy Note 5 based on these images? Do you think you will be buying the device despite it not coming with a microSD card slot and a removable battery?
