Every year in September Samsung has used the IFA trade show in Berlin in order to launch a new Galaxy Note phablet which started with the original device in the series in 2011.
However this year according to sources the South Korean giant will be moving the new Note’s launch up a few weeks. This decision has been taken by the company in order to avoid competing for attention with the announcement of the latest iPhone.
Apple is all set to refresh its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with new 6S variants and it has been holding its launch events just after IFA. That is why Samsung is trying to secure a slightly longer hype window for one of its own products.
The South Korean giant had done something similar last summer as well when it had introduced the well-received Galaxy Alpha in August.
This new Galaxy Note is going to be the fifth in its series and will also be launched in August like the Galaxy Alpha and will then be featured as part of Samsung’s IFA exhibition.
