Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 at the Unpacked event in New York last month. A week later, the company launched the Galaxy S6 Edge+ in India, priced at Rs 57,900. Today, it finally launched the Galaxy Note 5 in India. The flagship phablet is priced at Rs 53,900 for the 32GB variant, and Rs 59,900 for the 64GB variant. It will go on sale from September 20 onwards.

Samsung describes the Galaxy Note 5 as its ‘most powerful and dynamic Galaxy yet.’ In terms of design, it borrows quite a bit from the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones launched earlier this year. One of its talking points is the improved S Pen stylus.

For one, the company has added a new push-to-eject mechanism, which makes it much easier to remove the stylus. This mechanism came under a bit of flak when the stylus was found to get jammed if accidently inserted backwards. Samsung however had a rather curt response to this issue — read the user manual.

The phablet flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) Super AMOLED display, and is powered by an Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM. On the photography front, it offers a 16-megapixel f/1.9 rear camera with optical image stabilization, supplemented with a 5-megapixel selfie camera.
