Last week's announcement that Samsung is going to reduce the order for parts used in the production of the Galaxy S4 really affected the suppliers and probably also the investors and other stakeholders. This weeks however some good news seems to heal some of the last week's pain as a Samsung insider said that the production of the Galaxy Note 3 will start in August so the parts that were left in the inventory on the suppliers can be used for this other model. This makes the impact on suppliers actually minimum. As this is good news for suppliers, it also represents good news for us customers as we are really looking forward for the third Note device. We are expecting a September reveal at the IFA show in Berlin. As the production will start in August probably there will be no orders until the end of September. Meanwhile we can only speculate and wait for an official statement from Samsung.
