The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has, yet again, been the subject of rumors after new leaks revealed specs that are almost impossible to beat.

Sam Mobile released the nerve-racking leak about the highly anticipated phablet from the Korean electronics company.

According to the report, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 5 would be powered by 4GB-worth of LP-DDR4 random access memory (RAM) with the debuting Exynos 7422 SoC chipset.

"The Exynos 7422 SoC, that will debut with the Galaxy Note 5, will be the company's first true single-chip solution (ePOP) combining an octa-core 64-bit CPU, GPU, RAM, storage, and the Shannon 333 LTE modem in the same package," the report said.

Samsung's next generation Galaxy Note would also be sporting a massive and super clear 5.67-inch 2K Super AMOLED QHD display, which can be manipulated using an S-pen.

Like the Galaxy S6, the new Galaxy Note with model number SM-N920 would also be encased in a curve-edged glass and metal body that supports wireless charging compatible with standards of both the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC).

The phone was rumored to have an impressive 4,100mAh battery and would have Type-C USB ports known to have more uses aside from power supply, charging, and data transfer.

These types of ports, says BGR, are also designed to be reversible so users do not need to worry about plugging it the wrong way.

Earlier rumors cited by Sam Mobile in the past claim that the Galaxy Note 5's release would be done during the annual IFA which would be held in Berlin this year.

However, reports reveal that it may be done sooner rather than later.

An unnamed source told Reuters that the newest addition to the Galaxy Note line would most probably be released mid-August in order to "revive sales after a sluggish second quarter."

"Samsung is seeking to rebound from a disappointing 2014, when its annual profit hit a three-year low as smartphone earnings slumped," Reuters said.

The report further stated that, though the company was able to recover some of its earnings, Samsung fell short of the market expectations of their $6.11 billion-worth of second quarter guidance operating profit.

Park Jung-hoon, an HDC Asset Management fund manager, explained that though he is unsure on how much an earlier release would impact the average selling price for the device, this only proves that the company is looking for ways to keep their market share.

Reuters tried to contact the management of the company but Samsung had refused to comment on the smartphone's release.
