Samsung’s first Galaxy Note 5 ad is here, and it showcases the phablet’s stunning new design and improved S Pen. Samsung also provides a glimpse at some of its software features, such as split-screen multitasking and image editing.
The ad comes just four days after Samsung made the Note 5 official alongside the Galaxy S6 edge+. Both devices were made available to pre-order just hours after Samsung’s event, and various U.S. carriers have begun shipping the Note 5 already, ahead of its August 21 launch date.
If you’re still in two minds about the South Korean company’s latest phablet, perhaps its first TV ad can twist your arm. The 30-second clip begins by showcasing the Note 5’s new design — which takes cues from the Galaxy S6 — as well as its new S Pen, which now has a neat extending tip.
Samsung also shows off several TouchWiz features, including Air Command, multitasking, and image editing and annotation. One new feature that isn’t shown — which I’m a big fan of — is the ability to jot down notes even while the Note 5’s display is asleep.
