By now, Samsung have already made the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note5 available in some countries, while other regions will have to wait in days and weeks to have these latest devices in their regions, many have already ask if those earlier rumors regarding a 128 GB variant of the flagship is indeed true or what. Well, Samsung has a direct answer to the question and as the company previously confirmed, here they are again confirming as for the last time, “There would be no 128 GB for both devices”.
The new flagship devices had since omitted to include a microSD slot for memory expansion and users are now stocked with either a 32 GB, 64 GB or even a 128 GB of storage which are fairly enough for everyday needs. But shortly after a worldwide début of the Galaxy S6 series, Samsung decided to discontinue the 128 GB variant of the Galaxy S6 for reasons still unknown. Note users are expecting a different fate for the Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ which came out together last week but unfortunately, the highly successful phablet devices were also given the same treatment, so users will really have to rely on their built-in storage space or opt for a cloud storage. There are other news as well where Samsung is said to include a microSD card slot for their Dual SIM variants but that too will have to be confirmed just to make sure it’s legit.
With the latest strategy that Samsung is taking on the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, it’s a matter of time for the company to find out which features that users really need on their smartphone devices and will users just embrace Samsung’s direction or let go and look for other alternatives? It’s going to be a tough decision for Samsung to let go the features of a specific model that made the consumer buy them in the first place. Perhaps it’s just an experiment for Samsung to try out new things but taking them in a large-scale might be a wrong idea or if users adapt to new standards readily, it might just lower the building cost more while setting the product price just as close to its archrival.
But, does larger storage space influence your buying habits? or are you looking on the more brighter sides of things when you consider buying either the Galaxy Note5 or the Galaxy s6 edge+? Leave a comment below and let us know.
