As tradition goes, Samsung has been unveiling its Galaxy Note phablets at the IFA in Berlin in September. But this time it seems, the company could break traditions amid increasing competition from Apple s iPhones.

According to Digitimes, Samsung is set to host an event on August 12 in New York City, where it will take the wraps off the Galaxy Note 5. The haste in launching the phablet doesn t end there either, and the publication claims that it could arrive in major markets as early as August 14. The publication further claims that the phablet could flaunt a 5.7-inch 2K display and will be powered by a 14nm Exynos processor.

The haste is not without its reasons, and as mentioned above competition is ever so strong from its chief rival Apple. According to a recent report, the Cupertino-based company raked in 92 percent of all smartphone industry profits in first quarter of 2015. In comparison, Samsung took just 15 percent of profits. One of the primary reasons behind this difference is that Apple s iPhones were launched last year, while Samsung s flagships have only launched this year. This could be the reason behind Samsung s haste to launch the Galaxy Note 5, before Apple releases the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.
From what we have heard of the Galaxy Note 5 so far, it takes design cues from this year s flagship Galaxy S6. As for specifications, not surprisingly it will be a monster of a device. It is expected to flaunt a QHD Super AMOLED display, Exynos or Snapdragon processor depending upon the market, 4GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera, and a 3,220mAh battery.
