    Samsung launches a 128GB Galaxy Note 5 Winter Edition in South Korea

    Christmas is almost here, and Samsung is offering a nice little gift for prospective Galaxy Note 5 consumers in its home country – a Galaxy Note 5 Winter Special Edition that comes with 128GB of internal storage. The special edition will be sold through carriers SKT and KT for a price of 999,900 won (roughly $850), in Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium color options.

    Samsung took away expandable storage from its flagships this year, and with the Note 5 and S6 edge+, the company also did away with a 128GB storage model. It was a bad move for consumers who need all the space they need on their phones and can't depend on the cloud, and this special edition for South Korean consumers is likely to disappoint those who had to settle for the 64GB model of Samsung's best flagship yet.

    Samsung is also offering numerous Christmas deals in the country. Galaxy Note 5 buyers will get a free fast wireless charger, while Galaxy S6 and S6 edge+ buyers get a free Gear VR. That 128GB Galaxy Note 5 is still the huge takeaway though, and we guess it's a good thing the Galaxy S7 might bring back that revered microSD slot, don't you think?
