Samsung has basically released four flagships this year. The company has unveiled their two Galaxy S6 flagship smartphones back in March, and two flagship phablets earlier this month, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. The Galaxy Note 5 is a direct successor to the Galaxy Note 4, the S Pen stylus is here once again, and it’s basically an improved Note 4. The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, on the other hand, is more or less a bigger variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge handset which launched in March. That being said, it seems like Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus sales are going quite well for Samsung in their homeland, and according to the latest report, Samsung expects Galaxy Note 5 to sell that well in Taiwan as well.
According to the newest report by DigiTimes, Samsung Electronics expects to sell over 50,000 Galaxy Note 5 units in the first month of launch. It seems like the Galaxy Note 5 actually sold 20% better than its predecessor in the first weekend of its availability in Taiwan, at least according to Samsung Taiwan. These certainly are good numbers for Samsung, and it will be interesting to see if they actually manage to sell 50,000 units in just one month. Keep in mind that the 64GB variant of the Note 5 will start selling in Taiwan on August 26th as well, so that will quite probably boost the sales of the Note 5 even further.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 sports a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED panel, 4GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of non-expandable internal storage. The device is powered by the company’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 3,000mAh non-removable battery is also a part of this package. The 16-megapixel OIS camera is available on the back of this phablet, and a 5-megapixel shooter can be found on its front side. The Galaxy Note 5 measures 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6mm, weighs 171 grams, and offers 4G LTE connectivity. The device is available in Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Silver Titan and White Pearl color options, though that part depends on what market are we talking about, of course. Galaxy Note 5 sales are definitely off to a great start, let’s see what happens in the next couple of months.
