Samsung plans on launching two new high-end smartphones in the next six months. One of these smartphones will have a large screen, while the other will boast “new materials,” Samsung’s VP Kim Hyun-joon told the World Street Journal.

The high-end phablet is likely to be the Galaxy Note 4, which the company traditionally unveils at IFA in Berlin. From what we have heard so far, the forthcoming phablet is shaping up to be the most advanced device in Samsung’s portfolio. It is likely to feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16-megapixel rear camera and a 4-megapixel front-facing camera. It could also sport an eye-scanner and maybe also be powered by a 64-bit processor. Also Read - Samsung permanently discontinues the Galaxy Note series … for good
The other smartphone sporting new materials could be the Galaxy Alpha that leaked last week. It is essentially a 4.7-inch smartphone with a metallic frame, which seems to be targeted at Apple’s iPhone 6. It is also likely to feature a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button and 32GB internal storage. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra camera details tipped: All you need to know
In addition to these smartphones, Kim also revealed that Samsung would launch a host of devices “in the mid-to-low-end segment with enhanced specifications.”
Samsung is currently reeling from its worst quarter in two years, having suffered a drop of profits by 19.6 percent, while operating profits and revenues fell 30 percent and 8.9 percent respectively. The company has been facing some tough competition from Chinese brands that offer high-end specs and features at more than half the cost. This is one of the reasons why its flagship Galaxy S5 that launched at Rs 51,500 is now available on Indian e-commerce sites for as low as Rs 35,000.
