Yesterday, Samsung sent out invitations to a New York City event where we’ll all finally (officially) meet the new Galaxy Note 5. But Samsung has done a pretty horrible job keeping wraps on what the new smartphone actually looks like, leaking everything from CAD designs to these new hi-res photos.
These photos, courtesy of notorious leaker nowhereelse.fr, show off what looks like Samsung’s next big Galaxy Note smartphone. Samsung applies the same design language as we’ve seen on the Galaxy S6 but with a few slight alterations, like the sides for example.
In this picture you can see that the back panel curves toward the edge, almost like the reverse design of the new Galaxy S6 Edge which had a similar curve but on the front. This is good news. In my S6 Edge review, I mentioned that “it’s almost like holding a normal smartphone—but backwards.” It would appear that Samsung may be righting that ergonomic wrong.
But we loved the design and function of the feature-packed S6, and if Samsung can bring that same great collection of hardware and the not-as-terrible-as-it-used-to-be Touchwiz software, we could be looking at one of the best big smartphones ever made. [Nowhereelse.fr via Android Authority]
