At a media event held in New Delhi today, Samsung launched the hotly anticipated Galaxy Note 5 in India. The
smart phone phablet will hit the stores starting September 20, giving you enough time to reorganize your finances as the Note 5 starts at Rs. 53,999 for the 32GB version and Rs 59,900 for the 64GB variant.
The Galaxy Note 5 comes with a solid metal trimming around the edges while the back is largely dominated by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Overall, the new Note 5 has the same design as the S6 and S6 Edge that were launched at the MWC this year.
Samsung, to the much annoyance of its fans, has opted for a sealed battery this time along with no memory expansion slot. The smart phone, however, sports the same fast “wireless” charging capabilities as its other siblings and Samsung promises that the phone will charge completely within 2 hours.
The front is dominated by a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 518ppi. As for the internals, the grunt is provided by Samsung’s “in-house” 64-bit Exynos 7420 SoC octa-core with four Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.1GHz while the other four Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz, it is coupled with Mali T-760 GPU and 4GB LPDDR4 RAM.
Samsung had earlier said, “The market availability of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 will vary according to consumer needs and the specific market situation.” What’s interesting is that Samsung has not yet acknowledged any release date for the Note 5 in European countries.
