It was reported a couple of weeks back that Samsung is going to conduct an event in New York on August 12th to unveil the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and while the company hasn’t confirmed that as yet it appears that Samsung might do this in order to better compete against the new iPhones coming this September. User agent profiles for the Sprint variant of Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ reveal possible specifications of these handsets and they bring some hope for people who have been keeping their fingers crossed for a microSD card slot.

Galaxy Note 5 is believed to have the same metal and glass build as the Galaxy S6 which would mean that it won’t have a removable battery and microSD card slot, and since the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is just a larger version of the existing device it wasn’t expected to feature those things as well.

However the UAprof from Sprint shows that the handset has 32GB of onboard storage as well as a microSD card slot that features external expansion up to 128GB.

There are two possibilities here: either the handset does have a microSD card slot or this is merely a placeholder on Sprint’s website which will be corrected when the handset arrives.

Aside from that the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to feature a 5.7 inch Quad HD display, Exynos 7422 processor with 4GB RAM, 16 megapixel camera and Android 5.1. Specifications for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ are said to be the same as the Galaxy S6 Edge save for the larger display.
