The device will be power driven by a 64-bit 2.1 GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC and a four Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.5GHz for lower tasks. The processor is couple with 4 GB of RAM space as well. The Note 5 will be based on Android 5.1 Lollipop layered with Samsung's own TouchWiz. The device will have access to a wide range of Google services as well.
The device comes in 32 GB and 64GB storage options and we see that they have done away with the 128GB variant.
