Galaxy Note 5 Europe release reportedly set for early next year

It has been a few months since the Galaxy Note 5 was launched in the United States and several other markets across the globe alongside the Galaxy S6 edge+, however the company made it clear from the very start that the Galaxy Note 5 won’t be released in Europe this year. Since then there have been many rumors and reports about when this phablet will arrive in the continent, a new report suggests that the Galaxy Note 5 Europe release has now been slated for early next year.

The new report claims that the Galaxy Note 5’s Europe release will kick off from the United Kingdom where the handset is likely to go on sale starting late January 2016. It will later will rolled out across other European countries, precise pricing and availability information will only be provided once the release has been confirmed. It merits mentioning here that Samsung had never said it wouldn’t release the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe at all, it just said that there were no plans to do so in 2015. However, we are aware that no firmware development is taking place now to hint at an impending launch in Europe, so take this report with a generous dose of salt.

I’m sorry Samsung. Too late for me. Why should I pay my £600 for a phone that is now 6 months old? A lot of people’s contracts have restarted from the launch time of the Note5. You have really let the note brand down, big time. I pay cutting edge prices for the latest products and you are now offering me a phone that is 6 months old? No way samsung. Sorry you had your chance. You said you always listen to your customers, but you didn’t listen to your note fans. Sorry, that’s just poor.

The only thing that can justify the late release is that they introduce a new variant for Europe which means new hardware may be using the latest improved Snapdragon for example I don’t know, but if it’s the exact same device then it’s not worth it

why? The release of the S6 Edge Plus instead of the Note 5 was based on the needs of the European market.

Clearly there was no need for the Note 5 then, don’t see why the need would be there when the device is 6 months old.

I’ll wait for the next Note: not so stupid to pay at full price a phone of 4/5 months old !

Well, if it is priced 400 euro or so I would consider it. But I guess that won’t be happening.

In august 2016 I will be deciding, which phone to buy from my mobile carrier. S7, S6 Edge+, Note5 or Note 4 (should be cheap after Note 5 arrival).

Maybe not. Why would they release Note 5 in EU in January and then Note 6 in september? I think they will do the same thing with Note 6, i.e. release it in EU on January 2017 😉

I know someone who imported the Note 5 and I don’t find it an impressive phone, at all. Glad they didn’t release here, so I didn’t waste my money on it.

Well.

I have also imported the note 5 and it’s the best phone ever.

Not impressive ??
You must be kidding. Haha

Nah, I’m not kidding. I’m not impressed by it in any way. He did let me try it and I don’t like it.

My money, so I make my own choices. 🙂

You are joking right?
Who the hell will buy this crap at least if it’s not for 200-300eur only.

I have made an account especially for your dumb comment.

The Note 5 may well be the best Android Phone at the moment.
I am afraid you are a complete idiot.
Also why subscribe to this forum.
Nobody with common sense is interested in your comments.

the best phone is quite subjective. my opinion is the note 5 is a downgrade to the note 4, and i will definitely not be buying one.

I hope they do, but a lower price of €600.-

I’d be so pissed if I had to wait for a 6 month old phone.
