Samsung has very recently launched Galaxy Note 4 at the IFA 2014 event. A number of features in the device were correctly speculated.

Samsung galaxy Note 5 Display
Well, we always want more. Note 4 released with an oversized display. The display is perhaps the first to take note of Note 4. The size of the screen is 5.7 inch. We’d be happy if Samsung increases the screen size of Note 5. But will that be necessary?
In a sense yes. Large display is quickly becoming the norm. LG G3 and Micromax Canvas Gold A300 launched with 5.5 inch screens. LG G2 Pro launched with 5.9 inch screen, Huawei Ascend Mate 7 has a screen size of 6 inch. The recently showcased iPhone 6 will come with a 5.5 inch screen variant. In fact, Note 3 has a 5.7 inch screen. So the next Phablet in the Note series should have a bigger screen, expectantly 6 inch in size.
The display in Note 4 is remarkable. AMOLED display consisting of 1440 x 2560 pixels passes as quad-HD. It renders 2K resolution and its ppi is 515. The high quality resolution is a top notch feature of Note 4. We don’t expect Samsung to come up with better resolution in Note 5. All we want is the display to be retained in Note 5. Note 4’s weight is 176 gm and it’s 8.5mm thick. We don’t really have a preference here, Samsung just needs to make Note 5 easy to wield.

Note 5 Processor
Note 4’s processor is 1.9GHz. Note 5 is strongly expected to arrive with latest processor Exynos 7420 Soc. The chipset is rumored to release next year. Instead of quad-core processor, Note 5 may have an OCTA core processor, clocked at 2.9GHz.
Galaxy Note 4 has 3GB RAM. Note 5 therefore, may release with a 4GB RAM. Rumors have it that Galaxy Note 5 and Note 4 will have same RAM configuration. However, 4GB will in all likelihood be the need of the hour in 2015.

Galaxy Note 5 Price
As for the price, the device may cost between $850 and $1200. Smart handsets with cutting edge features are becoming highly expensive of late. iPhone 6 has recently been released in four different variants; the one with 128GB storage costs almost $800. Considering Note 5 will release next year and with a slew of features, an expensive price tag is justified.

There’s a reason why the heart rate sensor could be introduced. iOS 8 has released recently with HealthKit, a health app that performs similar task. Samsung probably wants to stay in competition.
