The Galaxy Note 5 is anticipated to be unveiled later this year and the public is expecting major device upgrades but will they be enough to be at par with the features of the recently released iPhone 6 Plus.

Christian Today said that the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 may have new processors especially now that Samsung is reportedly testing units with the Exynos 7430 processor.

Aside from this upgrade, here are a few things that people are anticipating to see in the upcoming Samsung installment:

Christian Today indicated that the phone could have enhanced UHD displays (2160 x 3840 pixel resolution).

Some sources have also claimed that the Korean company is working on providing phones which will have an amazing 4K resolution, ValueWalk reported.

"4K resolution is set to become a major technology in the coming years, and Samsung is already selling a wide range of television sets capable of displaying this resolution," the site explained.

There will also be some updates in terms of the features of its stylus since the S-Pen has been a unique part of the Galaxy Note series and Apple Inc. has not yet introduced a similar accessory to its devices.

Wireless charging will also be included in the Galaxy Note 5 device after it was introduced in the Galaxy S6 during its release this year, according to Value Walk.

Other great features of the upcoming Samsung phone are improved fingerprint reading features and a 25GB storage model of the device. PC Advisor estimated that the device could be pegged at $850 when it comes out in the market later this year.

As for the iPhone 6 Plus which was released in late 2014, CNet described the supersized sibling of the iPhone 6 as an impressive device among other iPhone models.

iPhone 6 Plus Specs and Features

The device runs on Apple's latest iOS 8.2 which includes Apple Pay, the mobile payment service allowing users to complete a purchase by simply tapping the phone on a payment terminal.

It also has a retina HD display in a 5.5-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit widescreen and multi-touch display with IPS technology.

CNet said in its review that the iPhone 6 Plus has "an elegant design, fantastic camera and user-friendly OS." It is available in 16 GB at $299, 64GB available for $349 and 128GB costing $449.

The same report, however, noted that the Galaxy Note 4 is not far from the Apple device in terms of features since the Note 4 has "an appealing design, powerful performance, a great suite of native productivity tools, expandable storage and swappable battery, and a useful S Pen stylus."

With all these features and specifications considered, which will be the best catch for you, the iPhone 6 Plus or the upcoming Samsung Note 5?
