Update 15th September:
We have now presented the list of signatures to Samsung, which they have taken onboard with interest.
At this time we have been unable to confirm with them a precise European launch date, but they do of course wish to meet customer demands when they can.
It is our hope that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will come to the UK in the not too distant future. We will keep you informed of any further developments that do arise.
Update 26th August:
Thanks for your support
One last push before we show Samsung
Firstly we would like to thank everyone for showing their support and signing our Note 5 appeal.
We wanted to provide an update because we’ve now surpassed the 10,000 signatures mark.
This is a fantastic number to hit in under 2 weeks and we have been overwhelmed by the support shown by the tech community.
We’ll be presenting the petition to Samsung on Friday, so we would like to have one last push to drive the number up as much as possible.
It would be great if you could forward this email to friends that may be interested or share our Note 5 appeal page on social media.
Thanks again, we’ll update you with any developments as they happen.
Here’s to hoping for a Note 5 European launch in the very near future!
The Clove Team
On Thursday 13th August 2015 Samsung unveiled the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
From the very first Samsung Galaxy Note, the Note series has been all about a powerful tool that is different to most other products available today. The stylus/S-Pen most notably being the differentiating factor.
The Note range has won the hearts of many around the world, from smartphone enthusiasts, to power users to those who simply love the Note form factor; this includes Europeans.
In a shock move, Samsung has announced that the Note 5 will not be launching in Europe in 2015. Whilst a future launch has not been ruled out, there is no current indication as to if and when this may be.
The Korean firm is instead pushing Europeans to the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+; a very powerful smartphone, but not a Galaxy Note.
Whilst here at Clove we respect Samsung’s decision we are smartphone users too and understand how for so many, this is very disappointing news. We would therefore like to show Samsung what the Note series and particularly the Note 5 meant to you.
Please sign this form below (or by opening it in a new window here), by entering your name and email address and we will, on your behalf show them just how important the Note 5 is to Europe.
We would like to think if enough people show Samsung their desire to buy the Note 5 in the UK and Europe then it may make them reconsider. Samsung should listen to their prospective customers when they tell them how important the Note line is to us Europeans.
Once you have signed, encourage those you know to do so to, by sharing this form and spreading the message on social media with the #note5foreurope
