Samsung Galaxy Note5 unboxing

Samsung Galaxy Note5 unboxing
Yesterday was Samsung’s big day to announce its latest productivity phablet king in the Samsung Galaxy Note5. Even though we got the chance to check it out ahead of the announcement, we spent the better time yesterday diving deeper into what it has to offer. Today, though, brings along yet another new opportunity for us – the unboxing of the goliath.

Yes folks, the good folks from FedEx dropped off the phone in question, which will be readily available for purchase starting August 21st. Considering that the Note5 takes after the Galaxy S6’s premium design language, it doesn’t surprise us that the packaging is also the same. Our particular review unit seems to be an international variant, since there are no carrier associations found anywhere on the box – including in the software of the phone after it’s all set up.

There are some tidbits in the rear revealing some of the Note5’s notable specs, but beyond that, it’s a minimalist looking packaging that doesn’t try to show what’s in side – though, we’ll certainly say that it’s a huge box. Inside, we get our first look at the phone wrapped in plastic, with the SIM tray removal tool behind that, and then all the other accessories. Specifically, it comes with a microUSB cable, rapid wall charger, a pair of Samsung headphones, and the traditional set of documentation.

We won’t go into any of the specifics regarding the phone, especially when we covered it exhaustively yesterday in our hands-on post. Instead, we’re eager to give this new phablet a spin to see how Samsung is going to continue reigning supreme in the phablet space.
