Does this affect the performance in any way? We find out in our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

After months of rumours, Samsung have officially announced their Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phablet for public consumption. Gone is the artificial leather backside to be replaced with a very Galaxy S6-like glass and metal back and thinner profile. Featuring a new 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2K or QHD resolution, the new Note 5 packs in the same S Pen but it can now be auto ejected. As rumoured, it also packs in tech specs that include the latest Samsung Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB RAM, 16GB / 32GB storage options, a 16MP rear camera with wide f/1.9 aperture, optical image stabilization and auto real-time HDR along with a 5MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture and a fingerprint sensor. There are obvious sacrifices to this new look as the battery is now a smaller 3000 mAh and there is no option for any microSD slot. On the other hand, it is one of the first smartphones to have quick wireless charging with a 2 hour charge time. No Malaysia release date or pricing details yet but it is expected to arrive in the US on 21 August 2015. We expect the Malaysia release to be within the same month of August 2015.

While we live in a world where people use their thumbs to type on touchscreens, the pen remains one of the most used tools in human history to date. As we gear up for the imminent arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in the next few days, Samsung have come out with an article describing the role of various pens in human history with perhaps the inclusion of Samsung's own S Pen stylus. Currently available on Samsung devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and other Galaxy Note devices, the S Pen can be used to replace your mouse and keyboard while giving your thumbs a rest as well. Check out Samsung's take on the role of pens (and the S Pen) in this article or see our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as well.
