In the premium smartphone warfare, competition between Samsung and Apple appears to be increasing as the differences between Apple’s and Samsung’s signature handset lines narrow down. Late 2014, Apple rolled out iPhones with the largest screens that is 4.7 inch for iPhone 6 and 5.5 inch for iPhone 6 plus to mitigate Galaxy’s 5.1 inch size.The iPhone’s large size has contributed to a huge success. The iPhones lead Apple to two quarters of 50 percent plus year to year iPhone profit growth.Recently Sammy has managed return its ego and fit in the smartphone market by poaching heavy design cues from iPhone to design its latest iterations of its Samsung Galaxy line, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge by replacing the plastic removable back with a premium unibody design.In the interim, Sammy no longer commands the phablet market as the Apple’s iPhone 6 plus found the more receptive audience than Galaxy Note 4, claiming 44 percent share. However, Samsung appears to be craving to reverse this awful trend.

Rumored release date

Unlike the Apple’s dual phone release, Sammy releases its Galaxy Note phablet handsets on different schedules than its normal handsets units. Often, Samsung releases its Galaxy Note in late October and September then launches the regular Galaxy in April. According to rumors, Samsung appears to be deviating from its usual release schedule for its Note 5.According to Korean website Whowired, Samsung will release its next phablet in July. This seems to be an attempt to challenge Apple’s next generation iPhone Plus handsets. If Samsung launches the phablet sooner than expected it is a good sign for the firm’s shareholders.

Demand meet, supply

As the quality and design were the biggest differences between the S6 and its Galaxy S5 predecessors, the Note 4 could be considered as a small movement towards the Galaxy S6 in design.Samsung is showing full support for its new models and redesigning its phablet as soon as possible could make perfect sense to compete with the Apple’s iPhone.
