Samsung To Launch Galaxy Note 5 In India On September 7
Almost three weeks after launching its flagship Galaxy S6 Edge+ in India, South Korean tech major Samsung looks set to launch its ‘other’ major flagship Galaxy Note 5 phablet in the country on September 7. Samsung is holding a media event in the national capital on the said date to launch its ‘most powerful and dynamic Galaxy yet’, aka the Note 5.
The Galaxy Note 5 was announced by Samsung along with the Galaxy S6 Edge+ in August. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ is now available in India for Rs.57,900 (32GB). Samsung at the time of launching the Edge+ had said that it will be holding a separate launch event soon to announce the availability of the Galaxy Note 5 in India.
The Galaxy Note 5 is the successor to the Note 4 and comes with a 5.7-inch QuadHD Super AMOLED display with a 1440×2560 pixels resolution and 518 ppi pixel density. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The Note 5 is powered by a 2.1 GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 processor coupled with Mali-T760 GPU and 4GB RAM. The Note 5 is available in 32GB and 64GB memory variants. However, Samsung brought just the 32GB variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ to India, so it’s yet to be seen if India would be getting both the variants of the Note 5 or not. The Note 5 does not support expandable storage.
The phablet runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop-based TouchWiz UI on top and comes with a fingerprint scanner on the front.
It sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and LED flash along with a 5-megapixel front camera.
The Note 5 is backed by a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery and supports fast charging and wireless charging.
The Note 5 comes with Samsung’s trademark S Pen that now allows instant note-taking without needing to power up the phone.
