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.
For shutterbugs, the phablet sports a 16-megapixel f/1.9 rear camera with optical image stabilization and LED flash. The camera also supports 4K video recording (30fps) and full HD video recording (60fps). It is supplemented with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video calling.
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.
