[Update: Not Really] Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ Have 128 GB Storage Option After All


The dust has settled on what was a hectic launch day and it is time to gather all the minor details that may have been overlooked during the announcements. On stage, Samsung only introduced two storage options for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphones: 32 and 64 GB. There was no word as to whether Samsung will be offering the two devices with a higher storage option like it is doing with the Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6.

While Samsung is yet to acknowledge this and have anything to indicate the 128 GB version’s existence on its product site, thanks to the sign up process required when making pre-orders (which opened yesterday in the United States), it looks like Samsung has the 128 GB Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+s somewhere. This is because those pre-ordering the two devices are being presented with an option to reserve the 128 GB version alongside the standard 32 GB and 64 GB versions that we had already heard of.

Pricing information of the 128 GB Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ is not yet available but we won’t be shocked if it hits the $1000 mark or thereabout for either device.

In addition to the fixed internal storage which is not expandable as Samsung went with form over function, users of the two devices will be able to get free OneDrive storage from Microsoft. We are yet to establish the exact amount of cloud storage users will be getting but 100 GB like Samsung has done with past devices won’t be surprising.


Samsung has acknowledged that there is no 128 GB Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5. Listing online was overlooked. It was a mistake.
