Samsung’s choice to release the Note5 there first is based solely on the fact that the Note series has been a roaring success in Taiwan. So, most of the sales are expected to be coming from that region.
Therefore, Samsung is first releasing Note5 in Taiwan instead of USA. Also, the first phablet in Note series sold nearly 2 million units back in 2011.
The 2 million figure of sale may not be a huge number on global scale. The total population of Taiwan is 23 million approximately. So keeping in mind the past response, Taiwan is the best country to first release the Samsung’s much anticipated Galaxy Note 5.
As far as pricing is concerned, the 32GB variation accompanies a price tag around $740. The 64GB model will cost around $820. Then again, the 64 GB version won't be accessible to buy until the end of August.
This is due to the reason of production mishap which has left Samsung low on stock. When it comes to the specifications, the Note 5 is a powerhouse.
It supports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLEd display, a 1.5GHz quad-center Cortex-A53 and 2.1GHz quad-center Cortex-A57 CPU. It also includes an Exynos 7420 chipset, a Mali-T760MP8 GPU, 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel back camera furnished with OIS and a 3,000mAh battery.
