There was a good bit of controversy surrounding the storage options of Samsung’s newest S Pen-capable flagship back in the day, but ultimately, US mobile consumers made peace with the 32 or 64GB choice.
Granted, the lack of a microSD card slot remains a huge inconvenience for many digital hoarders, but then again, if the Galaxy Note 5 is sold on Amazon at $900 in a factory unlocked 64GB variant, most normal people could never afford a prospective 128 gig model anyway.
Unless you’re lucky enough to live in the device manufacturer’s homeland, where a Note 5 Winter Edition has just gone on sale for a surprisingly reasonable $850 or so, i.e. 999,900 won. You can even get the phone in gold platinum in Korea, as well as silver titanium, and it goes without saying the rest of the specs are the ones you’ve been familiar with since August.
You know, ultra-high-end stuff like a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB RAM, 16 and 5 MP cameras, 3,000 mAh battery, fingerprint recognition, and wireless charging capabilities.
Now, don’t be too jealous of your Korean counterparts, our US-based Samsung-loving friends, and remember the GNote 5 is yet to see daylight on the old continent. Bottom line, you’re still blessed compared to some folks.
