Galaxy Note 5 Release (U.S.): 10 Important Details

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 release is all but confirmed and it looks like the company’s new flagship is heading to the United States. With a launch on the horizon, we take a look at the 10 most important things U.S. buyers need to know about the Galaxy Note 5 release.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors have been surfacing for several months though they’ve started to pick up as we’ve moved toward the company’s familiar Galaxy Note launch window.

For those that are unfamiliar, for the past four years Samsung’s launched the Galaxy Note in and around the start of the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany. For instance, last year’s Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge emerged at the start of the show in early September.

This year, it seems, Samsung will be doing things a little differently. Instead of an event scheduled for IFA 2015 in early September, the company’s planned an Unpacked event for a date that’s much earlier than your standard Galaxy Note launch date. And that means that we could see the Galaxy Note 5 hit the U.S., and other territories, before the start of the fall.

In the past month, we’ve seen a ton of credible Galaxy Note 5 rumors and many of them pertain to the device’s rumored and highly anticipated launch inside the United States. We don’t have all of the details just yet but there are a number of important ones that you’ll want to keep in mind if you plan to buy on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, or Verizon.

With a Galaxy Note 5 launch (and perhaps, a release) just a few short days away, we want to take a look at the U.S. Galaxy Note 5 release. Here’s what you need to know as we push into August.

Samsung Note 5 Launch Date Confirmed

If you're thinking about buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in the United States, the first thing you need to know is that the Galaxy Note 5 launch date is all but confirmed for August. As we mentioned, this is much earlier than IFA 2015.

Samsung is reportedly worried about the impact the iPhone could have on the Galaxy Note 5's success so it's launching it a little earlier this year. How early? August 13th early

The company recently sent out invites for an Unpacked launch event for August 13th in New York City. The company hasn't outlined what it will be announcing there but it saves Unpacked events for its biggest launches. And that means that we'll probably see the Galaxy Note 5, and all of its details, arrive there. 

With less than two weeks to go, we expect Galaxy Note 5 rumors to continue as Samsung's plans for the phone's release firm up behind the scenes.
