The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 still has the same size 5.7" screen as the previous version, yet it's housed in a thinner body made from metal and glass. The display is Quad HD AMOLED at 518 ppi, and the back of the phone is curved to make it easier and more natural to hold in the hand.
The Galaxy Note 5 still includes the "S Pen" stylus, which has been redesigned with a solid and metallic finish to match the phone. The S Pen has been made even more useful, including the ability to take notes even without the phone being turned on -- just start writing on the display and your handwriting will appear in white against the black screen. It has improved Air Command capability, so you can hover the stylus above the screen for additional options. The pressure sensitivity of the pen is more accurate as well.
The Galaxy Note 5 includes a 16MP / F1.9 camera with smart optical image stabilization and auto real-time HDR. The front facing (selfie) camera is 5MP / F1.9, and has a 120° wide angle lens. It can record videos at 4K UHD resolution.
Note 5 has both fast and wireless charging, NFC for mobile payments with Samsung Pay, and has 4GB RAM with storage options of 32GB or 64GB. It runs on an Exynos 7420 64-bit Octa core processor, with Android 5.1 (Lollipop).
