At this point, it isn’t known if the company has any plans of launching the smartphone outside South Korea or Australia.

At the time of launch, the Note 4 came in two variants — one that was powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 chipset, and the other which came with Samsung’s own Exynos processor consisting of Cortex-A53 cores and four Cortex-A57 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration.
