Samsung is almost certainly going to release a new Galaxy Note later this year, possibly in September. Expected to be called Galaxy Note 5 (a different name wouldn't make much sense), the new handset could be larger than the Note 4: if rumors are correct, the Note 5 will sport a 5.9-inch Quad HD display, which is 0.2 inches larger than the screen of the Note 4.
Recently, we saw several images that allegedly showed protective cases for the Note 5, allowing us to imagine what the upcoming handset might look like. Now, a new set of images has popped up on Twitter, also showing cases, but this time we're talking about transparent ones. Two of the new images even contain what might be not-so-detailed renders of the Galaxy Note 5 itself, though for now we can't verify their authenticity.
The transparent Note 5 cases have large holes on the back - presumably for the rear camera, the LED flash, and the heart rate sensor. There are also four holes at the bottom of the cases, likely for the S Pen stylus, a speaker, a charging port, and a 3.5mm headset jack. Just like the Note 4, the Galaxy Note 5 seems to have its power button on the right side, and volume keys on the left side.
The Note 5 could be 7.9 mm thin - that's thinner than the Galaxy Note 4 (8.5 mm), but thicker than the Galaxy S6 (6.8 mm).
The device seen in the second image embedded below is reportedly just a placeholder, so we shouldn't assume it's the Galaxy Note 5.
