Mobile News: Samsung to Launch New Galaxy Note this Month
According to the likes of Reuters and Mashable, Samsung has officially released word that the consumer electronics manufacturer plans to launch the latest version of its smartphone-meets-table device, the Galaxy Note, at its Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin, August 29th.
Although Samsung has already launched what it considers its flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S III, it’s been rumored that the Galaxy Note could ruffle a few smartphone feathers – especially because its due to be released just weeks before Apple’s anticipated iPhone 5 launch, allegedly set to take place September 12th.
The original Galaxy Note was launched in 2011, fully equipped with a 5.3-inch screen and Android Ice Cream Sandwich on board. The device was well received, leading to the Samsung announcement in March 2012, where the manufacturer stated it had shipped 5 million Notes in just 5 months. Just 3 months later, in June 2012 the tally climbed even higher with a total of 7 million notes sold – let’s not forget what this did to Apple’s ego, as reports surfaced that Samsung outsold the iPhone and broke significant shipping records.
What do you think? Will Samsung give Apple a run for its money? Do you prefer the Galaxy or the iPhone? Only time will tell what the outcome of this mobile battle will be, stay tuned!
