The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ may come in 128GB variant (Update: Nope)
Update: After getting our hopes up after putting up a listing for an 128GB model of the Note 5, it turns out this was just a simple web mistake. Samsung has now confirmed there will be no 128GB model, only the 32 and 64GB variant.
The brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are two really great devices. They both sport arguably the biggest and best displays on the market, the speediest processors, and a really attractive design. Unfortunately for many Samsung fans, both large-screened smartphones also come with the same caveats that we saw with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Neither the Note 5 nor the S6 Edge+ feature expandable storage. On top of that, according to the official press release and the Samsung reps here in New York, both devices only come in 32 and 64GB variants, not the larger 128GB option like we’re used to seeing.
That’s too bad, right? Actually, according to the official Samsung website, the manufacturer has both devices listed with 128GB variants, alongside the 32 and 64GB options. Although there’s no pricing information available on the site, the larger storage options appear to be available in a variety of colors for different U.S. carriers.
We’re not exactly sure why these storage options are showing up on Samsung’s website. Perhaps Samsung made a mistake, or the company plans on releasing these higher end versions, but not until a later date. We’ll be sure to let you know if we hear anything about this. But for now, tell us – would the addition of a 128GB variant make up for the lack of microSD card support? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments!
