Sorry EU, no Galaxy Note 5 for you

August 16, 2015

Samsung said it has no plans of releasing its latest Phablet in Europe.

After all the leaks and rumors, Samsung has finally announced the new Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ as part of its new Phablet lineup.

While pre-orders have started in the US and some fans in here in the Middle East have expressed interest in the devices, we have gotten word that the Galaxy Note 5 will not be making its way in Europe, much to the disappointment of fans.

Despite the popularity of the Galaxy Note series in Europe, Samsung decided that on a business perspective, it would focus on releasing only the Galaxy S6 Edge+ at the moment. This could mean that Europe will not be seeing the Galaxy Note 5 in stores and eager buyers might have to export the device from other countries.

There is a possibility that Samsung will eventually release the new Phablet in the region, but that would depend on how well the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ will sell.

Either way, seems like Galaxy Note 5 fans in the Europe are out of luck.
