The news everywhere is Samsung Note 5 is due to be launched in September but recent word from Wall Street Journal predicts that the most anticipated "phablet" would be out in August to outshine the next iPhone.To know everything about Samsung Note 5, read our post "Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Rumor Roundup.
"The Samsung Note 3 and Note 4 were both announced in September but this time around, the latest phone from the Koran company is likely to come out earlier. There is a big reason behind this. Last year Apple announced its iPhone 6 and 6 plus on September 9 and was quick to kick-off sales. As timing can be everything in the industry - it proved just that with Apple being able to grab the interest of the consumers at just the right time. Sales of Note 4 began 3-4 weeks after that of iPhone and it seems like it made all the difference.Samsung is looking to change that and score big this time. It is also worth mentioning here that Chinese companies like Huawei and Xiaomi are giving Samsung some tough time as well. The smartphone giant is expected to reduce the number phones this year and focus more on its flagship products.
