The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is official and it’s coming to shelves to take on the likes of the LG G4, iPhone 6 and the upcoming iPhone 6s. With a release in sight, we’ve parsed through the mountain of details so you don’t have to. Here are the most important things to know about the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 release date.
The weeks leading up to Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York City were packed with Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors. Report after report outlined the device’s key details ahead of time including specs, release date information, and more. Last week, Samsung took to the stage to confirm (and dispel) many of these Galaxy Note 5 rumors that had been swirling around since early in the year.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 has arrived and it’s already on sale. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 release date is confirmed for August 21st and carriers and retailers are already taking orders for the device.
In the days since the Galaxy Note 5’s announcement, we’ve seen a number of new release details emerge and many of them are going to be important to those who are in the hunt for a brand new smartphone. Samsung is doing things a little bit different this year and there’s a lot that prospective buyers need to know ahead of August 21st.
With that in mind, we want to take you through the key Galaxy Note 5 release date details. These are things that we think every Galaxy Note 5 buyer needs to know as we approach the device’s early release date.
Surprise Galaxy Note 5 Carrier
Samsung's doing things a little bit differently this year. For the first time, the Galaxy Note launch date is missing IFA and the Galaxy Note 5 release date is coming weeks before the Galaxy Note typically arrives on shelves. And that's not all.
The Galaxy Note 5 carrier list got a surprise addition last week shortly after the device was announced on stage.
In the past, the Galaxy Note series has been limited to the five major carriers in the United States. And that's why C Spire's announcement came as a huge surprise.
C Spire, a regional U.S. carrier, will be stocking the Galaxy Note 5 in the future. We don't know when or how much it will cost only that it will be hosting the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+.
Most of you are going to buy on a major carrier but this is important because it gives you another option. And options are great to have when it comes to buying a brand new smartphone. Look for C Spire to deliver more details in the days ahead.
