Recent reports indicate that the newly announced phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 might be making an entry into the Indian market soon.
While the smartphone is expected to be officially available in the Indian market from the September 20, 2015, we caught it on display already in Dubai last week (photos below).
Both the 32 and 64 GB variants of the Note 5 will be released for $840 (Rs. 53,900) and $935 (Rs. 59,900) respectively. To attract more sales, Samsung is offering pre-orders before September 20 a free wireless charger with the phone.
In case you’ve forgotten, the new Galaxy Note 5 follows a design similar to the new Galaxy S6 lineup and features a Quad HD AMOLED display with an octa-core exynos 7420 chipset. The frame predominantly uses metal and glass like the latest S6 phones, but trades the removable battery and microSD slot for the improved build.
As usual, the Note series comes with the S-pen stylus, however this time around, Samsung made some design changes to the stylus that invited criticism on account of there being a possibility of breaking the automatic sensor in the Note 5.
Along with the Note 5, Samsung also released their latest flagship, the Galaxy S6 Edge+, which is basically a beefed up version of the existing S6 Edge.
The Note 5 also has an edged sibling, the Galaxy Note Edge which was released in November last year and features decent specs.
