[Updated] Galaxy Note 5 in Europe? Not so fast

A couple of weeks before the Galaxy Note 5 was officially announced, we exclusively revealed that Samsung wasn’t actively working on a model for the European market. Consumers in the region have been disappointed about Samsung’s decision to limit them to the Galaxy S6 edge+, but some of them might have their hopes raised by a new rumor today that says the Korean manufacturer will bring the Note 5 to European markets by January next year.

Well, we don’t like to be the bearers of bad news, but it seems this rumor has little chance of turning into reality. Like the last time when we checked, the latest firmware for the Note 5 for Europe is from June, and development on the software has not gone forward after that. This could change in the coming weeks if Samsung does intend to launch the Note 5 in Europe early next year, but at this point there is no information to back up that possibility.

Update: Samsung has announced that it will start taking the pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 5 in Ukraine on October 28, 2015. The 32GB variant of the device will carry a price tag of UAH 19,999 (~ $922) in the country, and will be available in two colors; black and gold. There is no word on the availability of the 64GB variant of the Galaxy Note 5, but you can know more details about the pre-order from Samsung’s dedicated webpage.

€922??? Just ordered a Note 4 for €519.

I saved €400 and am getting more functionality. They know how they make customers happy 🙂

For this phone to be successful, they should first offer an exchange for those who had to buy their S6 edge+ (lol), come shipped with Android 6.0 and be available in Titanium Silver and 64GB.

It’s much more likely that, *if* it happens, the Note 5 will come to Europe by May. Alongside the S7, with 6.0.

But maybe Samsung would rather just go bankrupt. 800 million potential users (probably 850 by christmas if we don’t close our borders) isn’t exactly a small market. That’s over twice the size of the USA….

no such a big issue….. Sammy has decided to disappont users….. Europe is not so small…
Less users…less money…..
We as user will have plethora of different choices to put money on…..
So if Samsung is stupid….. we cannot fight the windmills…
At the end other brands will thank Samsung for this smart commercial move ahahaha

and Samsung is surprised that lose market share. At that time it was said no galaxy s6 edge in Europe and later it has come yet. The same now with the Note 5. Then a Note 4 with snap dragon, Exynos, with dual sim. A flagship model but 5 different versions and thus still poor supply update. Better would be a cheap phone, a medium line, a flagship phone and the Note series and even an outdoor variant and well.
