Samsung is set to unveil the newest addition to its Galaxy Note line of phablet devices on August 13th of this year. Moreover, it is quite possible that the South Korean tech giant will also be announcing another new device apart from its latest Galaxy Note offering.
August 13 is the date that the South Korean phone maker is teasing for its latest Unpacked 2015 event, which will be held at the Lincoln Center in New York City. Based on previous years, Samsung normally revealed its newest Galaxy Note devices in the month of September, and then launching its newly unveiled products a month later. This year, however, the company appears to be speeding up the schedule for its latest Galaxy Note device. It might be a smart move for Samsung -- doing so would give it a month’s head start over Apple, who is expected to introduce a new iPhone (most likely the iPhone 6S) this coming September. Ever since Apple launched its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, they have virtually entered into the phablet category, offering tough competition for Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of phablet devices.
Aside from the introducing the latest version of the Galaxy Note phablet, Samsung could potentially be unveiling another new device, possibly an enhanced or bigger iteration of one of the company’s flagship devices, the curvy Galaxy S6 Edge. Various reports have referred to this new device as the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and this smartphone is set to join Samsung’s already formidable lineup of phablet offerings. If this turns out to be true, then it is apparent that Samsung is really trying to establish a strong presence in the phablet category. Also, it would be a way of outmuscling Apple when it comes to offering smartphones with large display screen sizes.
Samsung really needs to up its game. Recent quarters have seen the company experience disappointing sales and dwindling market share. If it is to rebound, it needs to offer new products that should attract plenty of buyers. This is why many expect the Galaxy Note 5 to feature enhanced specifications compared to its predecessor the Galaxy Note 4. As reported by GSM Arena, the device may come equipped with Samsung’s own Exynos 7422 chip. This processor is highlighted as a vast improvement upon the Exynos CPU being used in the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge devices. Other reported specs of the Galaxy Note 5 include a 5.7 display screen with 2,560 by 1,440 pixel resolution, 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and 32 gigabytes of internal memory.
