Samsung Philippines officially launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in the country. Inspired by the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge’s premium design, the Galaxy Note 5 ditched the faux leather/plastic back cover and now features a full metal body with its front and back panel protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The back is also now curved, offering a better grip and easier access to the enhanced S-Pen, which features a new click-to-pull-out system.
Another highlight of the Galaxy Note 5 is the Enhanced Screen Write function which can capture up to 22 pages of content and a Screen Off Memo which allows users to write a quick memo even when the screen is turned off.
The Galaxy Note 5 also abandoned the Snapdragon processor and is now armed with a 64-bit Exynos Octa-Core processor similarly found on the S6 and S6 Edge, plus a bigger 4 GB RAM. The Galaxy Note 5 carries a slightly lower-capacity 3,000 mAh battery and runs on an Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.
The 4G LTE, Dual SIM Galaxy Note 5 will be available in the Philippines starting September 5, 2015 in colors Gold Platinum and Black Sapphire with an SRP of Php 36,990 for the 32 GB variant.
