Samsung’s official announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 only talked about 32GB and 64GB storage models, but it seems a 128GB option could also exist and go on sale sometime in the near future. Samsung’s US website is listing the three storage options for all four major carriers in the country, though there’s no mention of a release date. If the 128GB variant does indeed come to market, it will probably be launching a few weeks after the two lower-end versions.
Given the Note lineup’s focus on power users and the lack of a microSD slot on the Galaxy Note 5, a 128GB model is certainly very important. But as we have seen with existing devices in the mobile industry, smartphones with 128GB internal storage are often quite hard to obtain thanks to the low number of units that manufacturers produce. Samsung is already limiting launch markets for the Note 5, so we aren’t too hopeful that it will make the 128GB Galaxy Note 5 widely available.
While we’re waiting for official information on whether the 128GB model is coming or not, why not go ahead and check out our hands-on experience with the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+?
