In line with the last week’s report, Samsung has launched the dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy Note 5. Similar to the single-SIM variant, you get two storage options to choose from – 32GB and 64GB.

Described as the ‘most powerful and dynamic Galaxy yet,’ the Galaxy Note 5 borrows its design cues from Samsung’s other flagship line, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Like in case with previous Note-series phablets, S-Pen stylus is once again the main highlight of the Note 5. Samsung has also added a new push-to-eject mechanism, making it easier to remove the stylus.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 dual-SIM price: The 32GB variant is priced at Rs 51,400, and the 64GB variant is priced at Rs 57,400, which will be launched a little later. The Note 5 dual-SIM will be available to purchase from Samsung India e-store in Black Sapphire, Silver Titanium and Gold Platinum color options. In comparison, the single-SIM 32GB and 64GB storage variants are priced at Rs 47,900 and Rs 54,545, respectively.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 dual-SIM specifications and features: In terms of hardware, there aren’t any major differences. It flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display (2560×1440 pixels) with pixel density of 518ppi and covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. There is Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor at the helm, paired with 4GB of RAM. One small disappointment though, there is no microSD card slot to expand the storage any further.

Armed with a 3,000mAh battery, it supports wireless fast charging and connectivity options such as dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and USB host. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, wrapped under a refreshed TouchWiz UI. It is also due to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the coming months.
