The Galaxy Note 5 Winter Edition is now officially official, and the big change is that it offers 128GB of built-in storage. One other change between the standard Note 5 and the Winter Edition is that, while the regular Note 5 has a Samsung logo sitting right beneath its rear camera, the Winter Edition’s Samsung logo is located closer to the bottom of its backside.
The Galaxy Note 5 Winter Edition will be sold in Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium color options. It’ll launch in South Korea through carriers SK Telecom and KT at a price of 999,900 Won, or approximately $847 USD.
When the Galaxy Note 5 was first introduced, there was some confusion as to whether or not Samsung would offer a 128GB version. While the company’s website listed such a model, Samsung later said that that was an error. Fast-forward to today, though, and it appears that Samsung has indeed created a 128GB Note 5. That additional storage could convince a lot of folks to buy the Winter Edition, including existing Note 5 users, because the Note 5 lacks expandable storage. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on when or if the Note 5 Winter Edition will make its way to markets outside of South Korea.
