samsung galaxy note 5 color comparison (19 of 22)

We were all expecting the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ to debut last week, but what we weren’t expecting was that it was the former would find itself limited only to select countries, while the latter was pushed as the global handset. So far the only thing we can say with a fair sense of certainty is that the Galaxy Note 5 will not be coming to Europe, at least not in 2015. But what markets are getting the phone? Thanks to SamMobile, we now have a list of confirmed regions based on available firmwares.

It’s important to note that this list is likely not 100% complete, but if your country isn’t on the list, there’s a pretty good chance you won’t find the Note 5 marketed in your region and will instead have to settle for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ if you want Samsung’s latest.

Here’s the full list, as we currently know it:

AFG – Afghanistan SM-N920C

VAU – Australia (Vodafone) SM-N920I
