Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 has a very similar spec to the Galaxy S6 Edge+ that was announced in the UK today. Both phones have gorgeous 5.7in Quad HD (2560x1440, 518ppi) SuperAMOLED displays, although the new Note 5's screen doesn't have the dual-edge feature.

Another key difference is the new Note 5's inclusion of the S Pen. It's not only more solid-feeling and easier to use, but has a host of new features for improved productivity.

The new Note 5 is larger than the S6 Edge+, measuring 153.2x76.1x7.6mm, and weighing 171g.

Core components are the same, including a Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 4GB od LPDDR4 RAM and 16- or 32GB of storage. This will be a beast of a phone performance-wise.

Photography credentials are good, according to the company. You'll find a 16Mp f/1.9 camera with optical image stabilisation at the rear, and a 5Mp selfie camera at the front.

In common with the Galaxy S6 Edge+, connectivity options include dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MIMO, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and a fingerprint sensor. There's also a 3000mAh non-removable battery, which supports fast charging from either a wired- or wireless charger.
