Update August 14th, 9:41AM: Samsung has informed The Verge that 128GB versions of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ are not being offered at this time. The options listed on the Samsung website are incorrect and the company says the listings are being updated with the right information. This report has been updated to reflect this change.
After telling the press yesterday that it wasn't offering a 128GB version of the new Galaxy Note 5, Samsung today quietly added the larger memory option to its online store — as well as a 128GB version of the Galaxy S6 Edge+. The 128GB S6 Edge+ appeared to be only available in black on Sprint and T-Mobile, but in black or gold on AT&T and Verizon. After enquiring about these listings, The Verge was informed by Samsung that they were put up in error and will be retracted. That doesn't necessarily mean that Samsung won't offer the larger memory options in the future, as the company already sells 128GB variants of the Galaxy S6.
There appears to be quite a bit of uncertainty around Samsung's plan for its pair of new phablets, with the company also indicating that it doesn't have plans to sell the Note 5 in Europe, at least not for this year. The present mistaken listings aside, though, the choice of more memory in both phones would certainly be welcome considering that neither offers microSD support.
