Samsung Galaxy Note 5 & Edge+ Rumor Thread

Having a note 2, which I still love, I was waiting for the note 5 but it seams it will just be a bigger s6 w stylus. I know it will perform great but I hate that Samsung followed apple and restricted our options as far as removable sd card and battery which made Samsung different than apple which I dont like. I guess im going LG now.

Could the trend of the Note line missing out on the latest and greatest be broken? 3X CA?

 

ATT Note 5 + Edge has 3xCA while VZW Note 5 + Edge does not and have 2xCA. 

 

T-mobile and Sprint has yet to pop up.

I heard today from a samsung rep that they have been told august is blacked out for PTO. They only do that for big device launches. He seems to think they will announce and launch a note 5 in Aug.

TMO variants can do 3xCA and USM can only do 2xCA. Therefore, probably only 2xCA for Sprint too.

Discovered by staff upon upload to the OET. Wall article in the making. 

 

And yes. 2xCA on the downlink, typical LTE band 2/4/5/12/25/26/41 support, no SVLTE,.. yada yada.

Also unsurprisingly VoWiFi and no VoLTE testing. Is the technical description of LTE Carrier Aggregation pairs located in a report which is not publicly available or under some kind of confidentiality?

Yup.

Bummer. Samsung was one of the only ones which included the LTE CA pairs in the main doc other than LG. Even Motorola started including it in some of their docs. Can we petition to have the FCC "test" and "certify" the LTE CA pairs (so we can see of course)?

When CA is only downlink, the FCC has no recourse, as CA makes no changes in uplink transmission.

I was all excited for thth note but this rf thing is making step back. I can't believe it didn't scorbetter..

 

I'm completely "meh" too. No USB C (or even 3.0), no 4K screen for VR. Lack of an SD card can be made up by the 128GB storage option, but in total it just seems to be a worse RF performing Note 4 with CA.

I think for some reason Samsung expects note users to sit in an office and use it with WiFi...just don't get it. Seems like Samsung is just trying to stay with apple

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
