During the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, the South Korean smartphone giant had announced that it will launch the Galaxy Note 5 only in selected markets. Since then, it was being rumoured that the latest S Pen-equipped phablet won’t be launched in India. Now, we’ve received information from Samsung that it will indeed launch the Galaxy Note 5 in India.
Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 5 in India on September 7 at an event in New Delhi. The latest Galaxy Note series smartphone features a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based TouchWiz UX, a 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage space, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
In the camera department, the Galaxy Note 5 features the same excellent camera combo of a 16-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel camera. The primary camera uses a 1/2.6-inch sensor with phase-detection autofocus, OIS, F1.9 aperture, LED flash, and 4K video recording. Even the secondary camera has F1.9 aperture, but comes with a wider angle lens. Samsung has also added a way to adjust shutter speed and to save images in RAW format.
This year, Samsung has been under serious criticism from consumers for removing an ability to swap battery and expand the storage capacity in the Galaxy Note 5, something that they did with the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 edge, and the Galaxy S6 edge+ as well. Still, the Galaxy Note 5 is the best phablet for consumers as it offers one of the best camera quality, screen quality, and takes advantage of the big screen with smartly-designed software and an S Pen.
