Samsung Galaxy Note 5 prototype enters India for ‘research & development’

When do we get to see the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 5? Well, since the device has entered India for “research & development” purposes, it looks like the device will make its official debut soon.


The screenshot seen above was taken from Zauba, India’s import/export database. The listing reveals that a prototype with model number SM-N920 (believed to be the model number of the Galaxy Note 5), which is the same device that was certified by the US FCC, entered the country for research and development.

So when do we get to see the Galaxy Note 5 make its official debut? Normally, Samsung lifts the lid on a new high-end phablet at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany, which kicks off ever September. However, numerous reports have said that the South Korean tech giant is planning to lift the lid on their new phablet earlier than expected. Specifically, the Note 5 is said to be officially unveiled on the 12th of July alongside the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (rumoured larger version of the S6 Edge) and release the two on either on the 14th or 21st of the same month (likely the later). Samsung is said to have opted for an earlier release date to avoid clashing with the Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
