Today at its Unpacked event, Samsung announced the new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, two phones with a heck of a lot in common. Beyond the usual stuff like SoC and RAM, those similarities extended to the same four color options, as well as the same choice of storage capacity. In its official on-stage announcement, Samsung mentioned both handsets coming in your choice of either 32GB or 64GB storage. Those same 32/64 options appear in Samsung’s formal press release, as well as in the announcements we’re seeing from carriers as they get started with pre-orders of the phones. What about those of you who crave more storage? Is there really no 128GB option this time, especially considering the lack of microSD expansion? Well, we’re not sure exactly what Samsung’s up to here, but it sure looks like there could be, as the company lists 128GB editions of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ on its website.
The manufacturer’s site has options for 128GB versions of both new phablets, in all variety of colors, and with models configured for all the big US carriers.
We don’t see any pricing just yet, and it’s unclear at the moment if this is some kind of mistake, or if Samsung really intends to sell these higher-capacity versions of its new handsets. We’re trying to get to the bottom of this and confirm the situation with Samsung, but for the moment, there just might be reason to have hope that the 128GB Note 5 (and S6 edge+) is real.
