Although Samsung recently denied speculations on an early release of the Galaxy Note 5, a new portion of rumors streaming out from Asia says that the South Korean giant mobile manufacturer may indeed accelerate the launch of its new flagship phablet. The fervently anticipated Galaxy Note 5 could become available in stores by the end of August, just in time to debut before the Apple’s next iPhone.
Samsung plans to release the Galaxy Note 5 ahead of the iPhone 6S
Even though, according to earlier rumors, the Galaxy Note 5 was expected to be launched as soon as in July, the August release should still give Samsung time advantage over its biggest rival – Apple. The manufacturer traditionally introduces a new Galaxy Note device at IFA expo that takes place in September, however, if everything goes in line with the latest rumors Samsung will break its launching policy tradition and organize a separate event.
The recent word on the street suggests that Samsung wants the Galaxy Note 5 to hit the market by the end of August, which means a month earlier than the officially expected unveiling. Samsung seems to be seriously worried about the iPhone 6S announcement that may influence consumers’ interest in their new phablet, especially when Apple started offering the iPhone 6 Plus phablet with 5.5-inch display that challenges the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4 . That explains why the Korean manufacturer put all their efforts to release the device before Apple introduce the newest generation of iPhone.
As you’ve probably remember the iPhone 6 and its bigger sibling, the iPhone 6 Plus, were both released in the end September 2014 and Samsung hopes that the Cupertino team will repeat this launching pattern this year as well. But what if Apple also change their plans and right now their silently preparing to an earlier premiere of their new smartphone?
When it comes to the Galaxy Note 5 itself, the slate is rumored to hit the market carrying a 5.86-inch display sporting 2K resolution and a massive 4,100 mAh battery that will keep the handset alive. Other leaks claim that it will be also equipped with a USB-C ports, an upgraded flash memory, and will be powered by the Samsung’s own Exynos 7422 processor. Judging by the Galaxy S6 line, it should also feature a sophisticated, highly attractive design dominated by glass and metal.
Naturally, all of this is nothing more than another unconfirmed rumor and speculations so we recommend to take it with a pinch of salt.
