Samsung will launch only one Galaxy Note device this year that will probably be the company's first dual edged phablet following the success of the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone earlier this year, reports suggest.
Having launched the Galaxy Note 4 and the single-edged variant Galaxy Note 4 Edge last year, Samsung seems to be standardizing the 'edge' feature in most of its upcoming devices. Hence, the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 could borrow from the Note 4 Edge's display rather than the Note 4 which featured a flat display.
Additionally, the Galaxy Note 5 could also feature a 2k Super AMOLED display with a 1600x2560 pixel resolution. However, a 4k resolution with 2160x3840 pixels seems to be on the cards as well.
Samsung will also be persisting with its home-grown Exynos 7422 chip in place of Qualcomm's chips. The Exynos chip could perform multiple functionalities like storage, modem, CPU, GPU and RAM. The new device will also contain a 16MP primary camera, an 8MP front camera and an S-Pen.
The dual-edged display is the brainchild of Samsung's new Project Zen. This seems to be an equivalent of Samsung's Project Zero which was set up to revolutionize the looks and performance of the Galaxy S smartphones. With only one Note device to b launched this year, we may not come across any new Samsung phablet with a flat display anymore.
