The image above shows
a near-bezel-less 18:9 display; a major improvement in design compared to the
Note 4. The smartphone is likely to feature a 5.99-inch display at a
resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels, a monstrous 4000mAh battery and Qualcomm’s
Snapdragon 625 processor.
Judging by the translation of the specs on the image

expect the phone to be unveiled anytime soon, particularly to the Indian market
and to the rest of the world. However,
