A couple of hours back Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 5 as well as the Galaxy S6 Edge+, the latter is merely a larger variant of the Galaxy S6 Edge and it’s the Galaxy Note 5 that many were anxiously waiting for. The company has confirmed when this handset is going to be released in U.S. and Canada but there’s bad news for people in Europe. Galaxy Note 5 won’t be launched across the pond this year.
North America and Asia are the launch markets for this device but Europe gets no love, even though the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will be released there as early as next month with pre-orders starting in a couple of weeks.
The company has said that it will assess individual market conditions first before deciding to go ahead with the launch, this way it can get a better grip on demand and supply as well as avoid producing more units than it can actually sell.
For now it appears that the company has no plans to launch Galaxy Note 5 in Europe, those who are located in the continent and just can’t wait to get their hands on one will now have to turn towards third-party online retailers or import one themselves from a market where the device is being sold but it will end up costing them significantly more.
