Samsung's Galaxy Note 6 rumors have started gaining traction online. Meanwhile, the well-received predecessor Galaxy Note 5, tied to the model number “SM-N920G,” has been discounted to just $591 on Amazon. The original price of the 32 GB variant of this phablet used to be $849.99.
With this deal, buyers can save $258.99, which translates to a solid discount of 30 percent. It is worth noting that this international factory unlocked unit comes with U.S. adapter. This device does not work with non-GSM carriers like Verizon, Sprint, Nextel, Boost, US Cellular and Virgin.
This discounted model is now available in Black and Silver hues. Here is the link to order the 32 GB Galaxy Note 5. As always, buyers can avail free shipping service from Amazon.
As far as the specifications go, the Galaxy Note 5 carries a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, packed with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution and Gorilla Glass 4 protection. This display combination translates a pixel density of 518 ppi.
Under the hood, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chipset powers the device and it comes backed by 4 GB of RAM. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS runs the handset, but it is upgradable to Android 6.0 marshmallow.
Other than the built-in 32 GB storage space, there is no microSD card slot for further expansion. The Note 5 features a 16-megapixel primary camera unit along with LED flash and OIS support. Plus, there is a 5-megapixel secondary snapper for selfies.
Battery-wise, a Li-Ion 3,000 mAh non-removable cell helps keep the lights on. An advanced S Pen stylus comes along with the device bundle free of charge. This handset supports fingerprint scanner, Samsung Pay, wireless and fast charging features.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6, on the other hand, has been rumored to feature a humongous 5.8-inch display, pressure-sensitive screen, 8 GB of RAM and 12-megapixel camera with OIS support. Speaking of storage options, breaking the tradition, Samsung will apparently release 64 GB and 128 GB variants.
