You might think that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is just a larger version with a stylus of the regular Galaxy S6 flagship, and to some extent, you wouldn’t be wrong. Both handsets use the Exynos 7420 processor, which has proven to be among the most powerful. They also integrate the same camera configuration with the main one being a 16-megapixel one and the one of the front is a 5-megapixel one. They share some other hardware components, but the design of the Galaxy Note 5 includes a curved glass back for a more ergonomic handling. Plus, the S-Pen which has always been an integral part of the Galaxy Note series, now provides more functionality including the ability to take notes without even unlocking the screen.
The Galaxy S6 came was released in four colors and the Galaxy Note 5 is supposed to be available in five different colors, two of them are brand new, Silver Titan and Pink Gold. Still, those colors are hard to find in the US, carriers typically sell the Black Sapphire or White Pearl versions. Now, T-Mobile, besides announcing a lot of things today, they have announced that the Gold Platinum color option is now available. It is available on 32 GB or 64 GB capacities just like the other colors. The pricing is also the same, so the 32 GB model can be purchased at full retail price for $699.99, on one of their plans it costs $0 down and 24 payments of $29.17 per month on EIP or $0 down and 18 payments of $15 per month on JUMP! On Demand. The 64 GB version can be purchased for $779.99 on full retail price or with one of their plans for $99.99 down and 24 monthly payments of $28.34 on EIP or $99 down and 18 payments of $14.50 per month on JUMP!
