Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 5, but you wont be able to buy it officially in Europe, only imported through unofficial channels.
On Thursday (August 13, 2015), in New York, Samsung Electronics took the wraps off of the Galaxy Note 5 phablet, and as nice and exciting the phablet is, Europeans wont be able to purchase it on the continent, at least not through official channels, because Samsung’s short and mid-term plans dont include the Note 5, but the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (Plus), the S6 Edge bigger brother.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 feature the same 5.7″ Super AMOLED display like last year (maybe improvements here in there), with 2K (2,560 x 1,440 px) screen resolution, an octa-core 64-bit Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of ROM (built-in storage), 5MP front-facing camera, 16MP rear-facing camera with OIS f1/9 aperture, Android 5.1 Lollipop, and a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery.
The housing is made of glass combined with a metal frame that keeps the hardware together. The new S Pen comes with a spring-system (the slot), similar to the way the microSD work when pushed inside. The S Pen even has a clicky button at the top, like a ballpen, in case you need to calm your nerves.
The Galaxy Note 5 will be available next week in South Korea and in the USA, unfortunately for us, Europeans, I have bad news. Samsung isn’t planning on selling it here for some poor marketing reason. Claims it is a strategy, to do what? Beat Apple to the punch? How? If you was hoping for a Samsung phablet this year to replace the Galaxy Note 4, you’ll have to settle for the S6 Edge+, because nothing else is coming, at least by the 2015.
What you say about Samsung’s big marketing plan/stunt?
