Samsung Debuting Next-Gen Note Smartphone September 3 to Beat the iPhone 6 to Market
According to a new Korean report, Samsung Electronics will be unveiling its new phablet ― the Galaxy Note 4 in Berlin on September third. The executives at Samsung's top-tier suppliers further noted that Samsung is apparently looking to rush the Galaxy Note 4 out the door in an effort to combat Apple's next generation iPhone 6 which is to debut later that month.
The noted suppliers further stated that "Samsung will hold an event to announce the Note 4 on Sept. 3, just few days before this year's IFA trade fair in Berlin, Germany ― Europe's biggest technology exhibition. Samsung plans to send an official invitation letter to interested parties, media and industry officials for the event 'soon.'"
The report further speculated that Apple's plans to launch both a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch variant of the iPhone 6 in September are designed to sway some Note users to switch. Yet Samsung's Electro-Mechanics Chief Financial Officer Kwon Young-noh weighed in and stated that the "Samsung Note 4 will have far better specifications than the Galaxy S5 smartphone." Considering that Samsung's Galaxy S5 didn't impress as many as they hoped for, such bravado is expected to cheer on the troops.
Admittedly, most Apple fans can't wait for the Apple-Samsung smartphone battle to resume this fall. It's an annual tradition.
