The Pink Gold variant will be available starting on October 23. It will sell for a 965,800 won or $860 for the 64GB memory model only.

It packs a massive 4GB worth of LPDDR4 RAM, along either 16GB or 32GB worth of built-in internal memory. Just like other recent releases from Samsung, the Galaxy Note 5 does not have support for an external microSD expansion.

As for the camera, a 16 megapixels rear-facing camera and a 5 megapixels front snapper for selfies and video calling is available. Both cameras have an f/1.9 aperture.
