The Galaxy Note 5 may get a USB-C port, which would give you blazing fast data transfer speeds and kill the flip-the-cord game to charge it.

Korean news site Naver broke the news, though there isn’t firm evidence yet that Samsung has finalized this. If the company goes this direction, you’d get the USB-C advantage of a small, reversible plug, fast transfer rate, and high power delivery for fast charging. 

The report also drops a few specs, hinting the phablet will have either a 2K or 4K Super AMOLED display, octa-core Exynos 7422 processor and a 4100mAh battery. A 4K display would be a big leap forward (and possibly unnecessarily high-res and expensive), but a big 4100mAh battery is huge, and welcome.

The story behind the story: The Galaxy Note 4 is a great device, and given how well the Galaxy S6 and Edge turned out we’re optimistic about what Samsung could pull off. Despite some other rumors about an early release, we expect Samsung to stick to its usual schedule and show off its successor at the IFA conference in Berlin this fall.
