Galaxy Note 5 Europe release rumored for early 2016

The Galaxy Note 5 may finally make its way to Europe next year. Reports from Android Central and Gadgette claim the device will get an overdue EU launch in early 2016.

At the moment, Samsung only offers the curved-screen Galaxy S6 edge Plus in Europe. That decision has irked plenty of fans who prefer a flat display and the stylus that comes exclusively with the Note series of devices. Thankfully it looks like the company may finally come to its senses next year.

Back in August when the two phablets were unveiled, Samsung said it wanted to prioritize the Galaxy S6 edge Plus in certain markets. As a result the Galaxy Note 5 was limited to just the U.S. and Korea.

Beyond the shape of their screens and the inclusion of a stylus the two phones are almost identical. Both sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, an Exynos 7420 processor, 4GB of RAm, a 16-megapixel OIS camera, a 3000mAh battery, 32/64GB of storage and run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. The Galaxy S6 edge Plus is slightly more expensive though, making the Galaxy Note 5 the obvious choice if you don’t care about those fancy curved edges.
