Traditionally Samsung launches its Galaxy Note phablet in September, coinciding with the annual IFA event in Berlin, But what good are traditions if they are not broken?
If reports are to be believed, Samsung could bring forward the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 to July, which would give it a buffer of two months before Apple launches the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
According to WhoWired, Samsung is expected to get done with the prototype phase of the Galaxy Note 5 by mid-June. The report also suggests that the Korean smartphone maker has already confirmed the final specifications of the phablet and has already demoed it to key clients, which includes carriers globally.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 hasn’t been able to stop the juggernaut of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The bigger displays of the new iPhones proved to be successful for Apple, especially in China, where it became the largest smartphone brand in the first quarter of the year.
By pushing the launch ahead of the next-generation iPhones, Samsung would hope to get a comfortable two-month lead period over Apple for its Galaxy Note 5. However, Apple could put a spanned in Samsung’s plans as reports emerged today that it could launch the new iPhones in August instead of September.
