Samsung, which recently released the Galaxy Note 5 in the US, was not known to launch the much expected phone in Europe. But rumour mills have continuously hinted that a European version of the handset will hit European shores. Now, a new listing on Samsung's own website adds substance to speculations about Galaxy Note 5 still being a part of Samsung Europe's new hardware release plans.
This handset, bearing model number SM-N920F, is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and according to a Galaxy Club report, this device is the European-only variant of the Galaxy Note 5, and not the global edition. Samsung's website (translated from French) also indicates the SAR value/radiation levels of the smartphone (SM-N920F) which potentially indicates that the device is set for launch.
As if to add substance to the latest piece of information hinting at the launch of Galaxy Note 5 at least in some countries in Europe, an official tweet by Danny Dorresteijn (founder of SamMobile) states that a new Samsung Galaxy variant's hardware is ready and requires software updation to synchronise with European conditions. Galaxy Club believes this device to be the Galaxy Note 5 European variant.
However, Samsung is yet to issue official statements regarding the launch of Galaxy Note 5 in European countries. Being a flagship, the handset features key technical specs such as:
- 5.7in display protected by Gorilla Glass 4
- Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) operating system
- 1.5GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 and 2.1GHz Cortex-A57 CPUs within a Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC
- 16MP rear camera
- 5MP front camera
- 4GB RAM
- 32/64/128 GB fixed internal storage options
