The Galaxy Note 5 is codenamed as Project Noble (SM-N920), reports Sammobile. Apart from 2K or 4K Super-Amoled display and Exynos 7422 SoC already tipped, the Note 5 is like previous Note handsets expected to come with S Pen functionality.
This is unlike the dual-edge display handset, previously known as Project Zen. Sammobile claims that Project Zen has been internally renamed to Project Zero 2 (SM-G928), and will not feature S Pen functionality.
The latest report states that both Project Noble and Project Zero 2 will come with regular accessories such as the Clear View cover, however, will also feature a Keyboard cover.
Previous leaks of the Project Zen or Project Zero 2 handset dual-edge display phablet had tipped it would come with either a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch dual-curved Super AMOLED display. The device might also house a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 SoC, 32GB of inbuilt storage, 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS, and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

Cupertino giant Apple meanwhile is expected to launch its next iPhones, the iPhone 6s (and the iPhone 6s Plus) in August, breaking tradition of launching them in September every year.
If that be the case, then a September launch for the Note 5 could sound trouble for Samsung if you take into consideration the popularity of the current breed of iPhones.
