Samsung Galaxy Note 5 possibly launching in the UK (and Europe) in January 2016

This is still an unconfirmed rumor. 


Considered to be the king of phablets, the Galaxy Note lineup has always had a huge fan following around the world. It was surprising to see Samsung decide against launching the Galaxy Note 5 in many markets, with the entire European region exempt from the latest and greatest in the series. We have heard that the Korean company could change its mind and bring the Note 5 to Europe sometime next year, and another rumor has now surfaced to support the same.

The folks over at Gadgette are citing a source at Samsung as saying that the Note 5 will come to the UK in late January 2016. Apparently, this is the same source that said the phablet would not be launching in the UK, which means the latest titbit can be considered somewhat reliable. There is no word on whether other European nations will see a launch; Samsung has said that its decision to only launch the Galaxy S6 edge+ in the region was based on consumer demand, so it’s possible the company will do a selective launch in the continent over the course of the next few months.

The Galaxy Note 5 comes with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display, Samsung’s powerful Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization. It also features a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, LTE connectivity, a 3,000 mAh battery with fast wireless and wired charging, and the S Pen stylus. Unlike previous Notes, the Galaxy Note 5 doesn’t allow removal of the battery or any form of storage expansion, but it does have a premium metal and glass build that replaces the tacky plastics of its predecessors.
