Later this week, Samsung will be unveiling its new flagship phablet of 2015: the Galaxy Note 5. However, the company will have little to surprise the viewers and attendees of its Unpacked Galaxy event since the Galaxy Note 5 has leaked multiple times over the last few weeks.

Today’s leak basically adds insult to injury and reveals the final retail packaging of Samsung’s flagship phablet for H2, 2015. The pictures, which were first posted on Reddit, show the retail packaging of the Galaxy Note 5 in all its glory. Most importantly, the packaging confirms the final specs of the device, which includes an octa-core Exynos chipset, 4GB RAM, a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a 16MP rear shooter with OIS, and a front-facing 5MP shooter.

This leak also confirms that the Galaxy Note 5 will not come with a microSD card slot or a removable battery, which is likely going to be a deal breaker for many. The source of the leak also confirmed that S Pen on the Note 5 will indeed have a push-eject mechanism and will work similar to how the eject mechanism works for SIM and microSD cards on most devices.

Additionally, another source has posted a bunch of hands on images of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge Plus, and has even compared the devices to the iPhone 6 Plus. Check them out below for yourself.

If the specs and design of the Galaxy Note 5 are anything to go by, the device basically seems to be similar to the Galaxy S6 with some design improvements and a bigger screen.

What do you think about the Galaxy Note 5? Will you be buying it when Samsung unveils it later this week?
