On Thursday Samsung held its Unpacked 2015 event, where the South Korean giant launched its latest mobile devices and its new Samsung Pay payments system. The Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ were finally unveiled.
Samsung discussed and revealed all the new features and specifications of the two new smartphones and also listed the available capacities for both phones that are 32GB and 64GB.
The hopes for a higher capacity device arose when on Friday Samsung’s websites for both the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ listed three capacities which included the 128GB option. However it has now been learnt that the websites are in error and currently are in the process of being updated.
If Samsung had a 128GB version of these phones, Samsung would have had to compete with Apple which offers 128GB versions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However the android consumers would have had to pay more money for the extra capacity at a time when lower-cost Android smartphones are in demand.
Moreover we have seen that Samsung has even slashed the price of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in order to maintain sales. Even carriers have started to give out subsidies to users.
Through this users pay a lower price for the phone in exchange for agreeing to a two year contract. Plus Samsung does offer a 128GB option for its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
The new Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ are up for preorder in the US through Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. These devices will go up for sale on Friday, August 21.
