Report: Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 will launch in India on September 7th
It would seem that all the fervor over last week’s discovery of an Indian-based test ROM was not a flash in the pan. According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be launching in India on September 7th. Precise details are currently unknown as far as price and availability goes, but the report claims that a launch event will be held in New Delhi.
Samsung’s decision to release the Note 5 in another market is both a surprise, and perhaps a preface for what (might) come to pass: Many had assumed that the latest in the S-Pen equipped phablet line would see a very limited release for 2015, a sad fact that includes the denial of sale to all of Europe, at least officially: customers can import the international device at a higher cost.
While it’s unlikely Samsung will have a sudden change of heart and sell the Note 5 in Europe this year, the addition of another territory for sale is definitely a step in the right direction.
The Galaxy Note 5 is the latest installment in the venerable Note series, that which essentially created the entire phablet genre. It packs a 5.7-inch sAMOLED QHD (2560×1440) display, an Exynos 7420 SoC (4x 2.1GHz Cortex-A57, 4x 1.5GHz Cortex-A53), Mali-T760 MP8 for graphics, 4GB of RAM, and storage options of either 32GB or 64GB. Also included is a 16MP rear, 5MP front camera assortment, 3000mAh battery, Category 6 LTE support, a fingerprint sensor and both Qi & PMA wireless charging support.
