Samsung Galaxy Note 5 heading to the UK

It appears that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is heading to the UK, following Samsung’s decision early this year to not release it into European markets.

 

Initially citing that European consumers had little interest in the S Pen, Samsung disappointed many loyal fans of the Note series, but it is now expected to become available in the UK during January 2016.

The S Pen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 works more like an actual pen, with true-to-life pressure sensitivity for a natural writing and drawing experience. The S Pen now has a metallic finish and it can be accessed with a simple click.

Improved Air Commands accompany S Pen apps and features such as Action Memo, Smart Select for highlighting awkward shapes, Screen Write and S Note. Notes can even be made when the screen is off.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 features a 7000 series aluminium construction and the durability continues with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protecting the 5.7” display, which shows 518 pixels per inch.

The Galaxy Note 5 is slimmer than before at 7.6mm thick, yet it still has a very high-capacity 3000mAh battery. This can be charged in the normal way or alternatively it can be charged using a wireless charger, not supplied.

 

The octa-core processor with 4GB RAM gives all of the power needed to run two apps side-by-side, so split-screen multitasking has truly become a reality.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 camera has a 16MP resolution and the usual set of features such as Burst Shot and Panorama. Video can be shot at a resolution of 4K and this gives four times the definition of Full HD.

Live Broadcasts can be streamed to YouTube with other video features including Collage and Slow Motion playback. The secondary 5MP camera uses a 120-degree wide angle lens for taking group selfies.

 

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a true premium smartphone and it will be priced to match. Consumers may not come in droves but for anyone who has an older version of the Galaxy Note, it will of course be the natural replacement.
