Despite the rumour mills indicating at a large 4100mAh battery, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 was finally launched with a standard 3000mAh unit. The larger battery would have provided the Note5 a large amount of juice on the go, thereby enabling the device to last through two days of heavy usage.
Nevertheless a new leak unearthed by Phonearena hints that Samsung is indeed working on a Note5 with a 4100mAh variant. In fact the new edition of the Note5 is said to be in works under the moniker of Active. The Samsung Galaxy Note5 Active is said to be released in November on AT&T networks in USA. The leaks further added that all other specifications of the device will be carried over from the recently launched Note5.
According to the report the alleged device is said to come with a durable body and IP68 waterproofing certification. It is reported to arrive in week 46 - this points to a date somewhere around the 8th of November.
The company's trend of launching a new iteration of their device dubbed Active is no new though. Samsung had previously launched a Galaxy S6 Active device in US where it dumped the all glass and metal body to come with a rock solid build. The phone came with drop test durability and a waterproof chasis. Along with that Samsung had stacked in a higher than usual battery.
Hence going by company's recent trends it makes us believe that the present Note5 Active leak may come out to be true. Nevertheless even if the Note5 Active is launched in US, there's very slight possibility that Samsung will bring it to its other existing markets.
