Have You Seen The New Galaxy Note 5 With A Very Odd Keyboard?

Yesterday, Samsung revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Samsung S6 Edge+ at the company’s unpacked event in New York City. In addition to this reveal, they also revealed an odd accessory that had my opinions divided.

Meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Galaxy Note 5
The Galaxy Note 5 is overly similar to the Galaxy S6 in terms of Processor and battery. The Note 5 comes with an Exynos 7420 processor, a 4GB RAM and a 5.7inch QHD display. If you were expecting a MicroSD slot, I am sorry to burst your bubble but the Galaxy Note 5 doesn’t come with a MicroSD card slot.

In addition to the phone reveal, Samsung launched a very odd looking keyboard for the Galaxy Note 5, like I said earlier, my opinions were divided because I felt the keyboard practically turned the Galaxy Note 5 into  a massive Blackberry look alike. See the image below and tell me what you think.

The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a bit similar to his sibling  – the Galaxy S6, it is 10mm longer and 5mm wider than its predecessor with a 5.7-inch screen and a quad HD display.
One thing that is different with the S6 Edge+ is that the battery has been beefed up to 3000mAh..Asides that other hardware specs such as the camera and processor remain the same.

    What were they thinking before that keyboard came about? Looks like something that was made like a decade ago.

    Bu… Butt.. What ever happened to futuristic designs?

  6. Kay says:

    I’m in love with physical keyboards, but it lease not this! I’d rather stick with the weird oolong BB passport’s pad than this…. They should work on improving the design of the keyboard.
    and wow, 4GB RAM – what is it gon’ be used for! #waste

    1. KENSHI says:

      LOOOL. #waste just killed me.
