Winter is here indeed as Samsung Group (NASDAQ:SSNLF) has launched the Galaxy Note5 Winter edition, though only in its native South Korea. The main highlight of the device is its 128 GB internal storage, as it is not available in any of its earlier variants launched in August.
The Winter Edition of the phablet is available in two color variants namely Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium. The newly announced variant is exactly same as any other Galaxy Note5 variant apart from the 128GB storage. The only noticeable difference is the slight repositioning of the Samsung logo housed on the back.
Besides the increased 128GB storage, the Galaxy Note5 Winter Edition gets a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display. Powering the phablet will be company’s in-house Exynos 7420 octa-core SoC, Mali-T760 MP8 GPU bundled with 4GB of RAM.

In terms of optics, the Galaxy Note 5 Winter Edition sports a 16MP rear camera with OIS while on the front there is also 5MP selfie cam. Juicing up the phablet would be a 3000mAh non-removable battery while connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, and other standard connectivity features alongside a fingerprint scanner. It’s worth pointing out that there’s no microSD slot on newly announced Winter Edition as well.
The Galaxy Note5 Winter Edition gets a price tag of 999,900 KRW (roughly $846) in South Korea, which is being sold through SKT and KT mobile carriers. Samsung is yet to confirm its availability in other international markets, though we can expect the device being launched in other markets as well. Meanwhile, the company is also offering a slew of deals with other smartphones in South Korea. Customers who purchase the Galaxy S6 Edge or Galaxy S6 Edge+ get a free Gear VR.
