The Galaxy Note5 is the latest in Samsung's line of Note devices.

It also has the S Pen stylus that the series is known for.
Compared to the previous Galaxy Note 4, the Note5 loses the faux leather back finish, instead opting for the new glass back similar to the S6. The battery is also sealed in this time and there isn't expandable memory, again like the S6. The Note5, however, loses the IR blaster, that both the S6 and the Note 4 have.
The Note5 will be available in Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium starting September,20th.
Samsung latest flagship devices such as Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ launched with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop that packs a whole New TouchWiz UX. The New User Interface adopts Google's Material Design even more.
In the New 2015 TouchWiz, Samsung updated all its default system apps, from music player, photo gallery to the settings, contacts app, phone dialer and multi-task manager. This release is focusing more on the Interface than adding new core-features to the software. we have to be honest, TouchWiz UI came a long way since its release with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Samsung revealed the Galaxy Note5 last week on the Unpacked 2015 event. The flagship phablet doesn't pack a curved display, but it packs a curved back glass.
The first Note5 drop Test YouTube video for the, shows us just how fragile the curved glass design on the Note5 actually is. A drop from around 1 meter, which is usual waist height, instantly cracked the unit's back, resulting in an extensive and nasty spider web crack.
Interestingly enough, the top most layer of the back remained smooth and intact with the damage contained underneath. So, at least, there is no danger of cuts. Watch the video below!
