Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to Pack All-in-One Exynos 7422 CPU, May Lack MicroSD Slot

We're less than a month away from Samsung Galaxy Note 5's official unveil and it looks like we're getting more info on the upcoming flagship smartphone.

Even though we already know some of the specs that Samsung plans to include inside the Galaxy Note 5, there are still some details that have been left out. The folks over at SamMobile have just learned that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be initially available in four color options: Black, Gold, Silver and White. Just like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will feature glass back, which is a clear indication that the phablet is likely to lack microSD card slot. Also, due to the unibody design and glass coating, the Galaxy Note 5's battery might not be removable.

According to the same source, the Galaxy Note 5 will be powered by Samsung's all-in-one Exynos 7422 chipset. Why is it all-in-one? Because for the first time it will embed all solutions, including a 64-bit octa-core CPU, GPU, RAM, storage and Samsung's Shannon LTE modem.

Samsung has already tested 4K displays
Apparently, Samsung also tested the Exynos 7430 chipset inside the Galaxy Note 5, which features support for 4K display, but decided to use the Exynos 7422 and a 2K display this year. Now, when it comes to microSD card slot things don't look that bright for Samsung Galaxy Note fans. Word is that Samsung plans to follow the same plan it adopted with Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. These two flagship smartphones feature the fastest internal storage technology (UFS 2.0), which will not offer the same performance if they would pack microSD card slots.

Given the fact that UFS 2.0 technology uses another type of memory controller than the eMMC 5.0 solution offered by SD cards, it would be impossible for these two to coexist without affecting the overall performance. If Samsung plans to implement the UFS 2.0 technology inside the Galaxy Note 5, it's highly unlikely that the smartphone will be packed with microSD card slot as well.
