Samsung May Announce Galaxy Note 5 in August to Beat iPhone Launch

Samsung is planning to move up the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 by one month to avoid competing with Apple's annual iPhone event in September, according to The Wall Street Journal. The South Korean handset maker will reportedly unveil the next Galaxy Note in mid-August instead of announcing the smartphone at the IFA Berlin trade show in early September as it has done for four consecutive years.

Galaxy Note 4
Apple introduced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus just six days after the Galaxy Note 4 was announced on September 3 last year, shifting much of the media coverage and consumer attention away from Samsung. With the launch of the so-called "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6s Plus" also likely to be in September, Samsung is reportedly looking to avoid the same fate with the Galaxy Note 5.

That's when you know you're the beta company. When the other guy's regularly scheduled release dates cause you to alter yours because you can't compete otherwise.

Given Samsung's losses the last year or so, they're competing with the wrong company. They should be going toe to toe with Xiaomi, who's eating their lunch.

Showing some desperation perhaps? Isn't the best always saved for last? :p

I liked this for two reasons: 1. it's true, and 2. proper grammar and use of apostrophes. It's a rarity these days. ;)

I really like Galaxy Note series,obviously I'm iOS user (iPhone/iPad and ofcourse Mac) but Galaxy Note is the best "phablet" imo.I own iPhone 6,but if I want to go bigger,it's more likely gonna be Note instead of 6 Plus.
