Samsung does a 180 and releases a 128GB Galaxy Note 5


Samsung made a very unpopular decision to cap the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 out at 64GB. It was especially frustrating because Samsung’s flagships no longer support expandable storage via microSD.

Well… they’re backtracking, sort of. The company has revealed a special Winter Edition Galaxy Note 5, and aside from being a nice excuse to buy a new phone for Christmas this is the only known Note 5 with 128GB of internal storage.

The sad catch is that this new variant will only be sold through local carriers KT and SKT for the equivalent of $850, and there’s no indication Samsung is going to bring these to other markets in the future. We’ll keep our fingers crossed, of course, but it’s best not to hold your breath.

If you didn’t already settle for a 64GB Note 5 or opt to go with a different device altogether, you could wait to see if Samsung eventually spreads the launch of this thing, but if it doesn’t end up happening then importing it may be your only option. The device will supposedly cost around the equivalent of $850, and you can expect to pay a hefty premium on top of that if you want to go that route.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
