Galaxy Note 5 - It’s still big but now Slimmer



Samsung is busy prepping the next-gen avatar of its popular Galaxy Note series, the Galaxy Note 5. Now, word is that the impending Galaxy Note 5 phablet may boast a novel feature for its S Pen stylus: Auto-eject.

The next logical question is how Samsung will bring this polarization into effect. Samsung's patent suggests that the OEM is looking to key in a voice command or gesture control system that will work in tandem with the auto-eject feature.

Users will likely need to issue a voice command or draw a basic "shape gesture" that will propel the stylus into eject mode automatically.

Since it is possible to automatically eject the touch pen only with a simple manipulation and/or command, it is easy to manipulate the electronic device with one hand, and since a separate locking device for confining the touch pen isn't needed, it is possible to enhance the usage convenience of the electronic device.

Alternatively, a possibility exists that Samsung may have a button to facilitate auto-ejection. With the Galaxy Note 5 anticipated to release at the IFA 2015 in Berlin in September this year, we will know if the unique auto-eject feature makes its way to the phablet.

Samsung is seeking to regain market share from Apple with the launch of its two premium smartphones – the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
Both phones will be available from August 28 across the GCC.

The 32-gigabyte Note 5 is priced at Dh2,799, the 32-gigabyte S6 Edge Plus will cost Dh3,099 and the 64-gigabyte version will retail at Dh3,399.

Hoping these phones grab a substantial market share across the GCC.
