I’ve had every Note (with exception of the exploding Note 7 and the Note 5 which never came to Europe) – and this news is just depressing. If Samsung doesn’t give the consumers a choice in which processor they purchase, then they will lose many dedicated and long standing fans of the Note series. It’s really a shame how corporate politics plays over consumer demand . . . All I can say is, if Samsung releases the Exynos 990 in Europe without an option for the 865+, they will lose sales – and especially my hard earned money!
