Samsung Galaxy Note 5 could be coming to Europe in January

Samsung's latest flagship phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, could be arriving on these shores in January.

When Samsung launched its slinky Galaxy Note 5 phablet back in August, it came with a bitter side-note. It wouldn't be launching in the UK or Europe.

Samsung provided vague statements about reassessing its decision based on "consumer needs and the specific market situation," but without a firm commitment to a wider launch we were left disappointed.

Some hope has arrived, albeit from a somewhat dubious source. According to Romanian tech blog Gadget-talk (via TechRadar), a source 'close to Samsung Romania' has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 5 could be coming to Europe in January.

As we say, this claim should be taken with a healthy pinch of salt, with no evidence or corroborating sources available to back it up.

Still, it remains an oddity that a company of Samsung's size and reach would keep one of its best and most prestigious devices to a few select territories. Particularly when its main rivals are launching high-profile productivity devices with advanced styluses.

We're talking, of course, about the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro 4, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 would certainly appeal to a similar (or at least overlapping) market.

Of course, the Galaxy Note 5 hasn't been without its controversy since launch, with a high-profile design flaw seeing it possible to insert the S Pen stylus the wrong way up.

Regardless, it's a uniquely equipped phablet that we'd love to see launched in the UK.
