Samsung Galaxy Note 5 In Titanium Silver Available At Bell

It is always nice when we can report on a new color popping up on a device, such is the case of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 now being available in the Titanium Silver color on the Bell network.  When Samsung Canada originally made their announcement about the Galaxy Note 5 going to Canada, they indicated that it would only be available in Black Sapphire – a kind of blue-black look – so it is nice to see one the more beautiful colors coming to Canada.  So far, only Bell has shown the Silver Titanium on their website, so it may be an exclusive color just for them – we will let you know if we find out it will be offered on other carriers. It is available for $359.99 on a two-year term or $849.99 outright at Bell.

Around the world, depending where you are located, the Galaxy Note 5 is produced in four colors – Black Sapphire, White Pearl, Gold Platinum and the Silver Titanium.  In the States only the Black and White variants are available.  It is interesting how the manufacturers play around with the colors and who gets what – they should come out with all colors (four in this case) and distribute them to all the countries.  Sometimes they release the standard black and white upon the initial release and later, after the excitement has died down, bring out the rest of the colors to re-kindle the interest in the product.  That is a good marketing technique if they do not wait too long and that they bring the colors everywhere, keeping all of the customers happy.

The colors on the new Galaxy Note 5 are more important than ever this year because of their new all glass and metal design – the colors really grab your eye when painted in the inside of the glass.  Under all of that beauty is a real flagship phablet, complete with the S-Pen and all of the new improvements and software involved with its stylus.  Under the hood there is lots of power to run the 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display with its 64-bit Exynos 7420 octa-core processor built with 14nm technology.  The Note 5 is packing 4GB of DDR4 RAM and 32GB or 64GB of UFS 2.0 non-expandable memory and a non-removable 3000 mAh battery with rapid charge and built-in quick wireless charging.  Add to that one of the best cameras found on a smartphone and you have yourself a real powerhouse of a smartphone.
