With the Galaxy S6 Samsung got rid of two features that fans loved; the removable battery and the microSD card slot. Leaked photos of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 suggest that this is a direction that Samsung is happy to continue in.

The leaked photographs, published by Droid Life, shows the Galaxy Note 5 to be a phablet version of the Galaxy S6, continuing with the same glass and metal design. There's also no sign of the much-loved user-replaceable battery or the microSD slot.

The Droid Life source also claims that the battery is a 3,00mAh unit, which would make it larger than the power pack found inside the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge. The source also claims that the phablet will be offered in 32, 64, and 128GB configurations.

Oh, and there's also a pen.

It's important to note that none of this is official, that's what the Samsung Unpacked event on August 13 is for. Only then will we know for sure if Samsung has turned its back on removable batteries and microSD card slots.

Earlier this week Samsung began slashing prices of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
