Samsung disappointed quite a few buyers by limiting the Samsung Galaxy Note 5's storage at 64GB. It added to the frustration, as there was no miscoSD slot in the flagship device. The company has unveiled a special Winter Edition Galaxy Note 5, the only Note smartphone with 128GB of internal storage.
The new Note 5 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super Amoled display and inclusion of the stylus can make this note a threat to the Apple's iPhone 6S Plus, which already comes in a 128GB variant and features a 5.5-inch screen. But, the Winter Edition needs to connect with consumers outside of Korea to boost the Samsung's sluggish sales numbers.
This device is powered by company's own Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC, Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, and backed by 4GB of RAM.. But, note that the microSD slot is still not available. Other features include a 16-megapixel snapper in the back with OIS (f/1.9 aperture), a 5-megapixel camera in the front. The battery will be non-removable and it'll be of 3000 mAh.
It can connected via 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, and other standard connectivity option. This winter edition will also have a fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Winter Special Edition is available at KRW 999,900 and is being sold via SKT and KT mobile carriers.
