Since Samsung has already launched the premium Galaxy S7 phone for 2016, the public interest is now switching towards the Note 6 device. The newest product in the variety of highly popular and appreciated phablet series is rumored to arrive some time during fall.
However, various sources are indicating that the phone could come on the market earlier than users and experts were anticipating. The news was published by several Korean blogs that are known for being close to Samsung’s supply chain.
The sources think that they found out the exact launch date for Samsung Note 6 and say that this flagship phablet will arrive in stores during July. This period will represent a lot earlier launch than those of past Galaxy Note versions.
Tech sites based in Korea also affirm that the Note 6 phone has the code name of Grace in manufacturing, since Samsung is very secretive with this very important gadget. It is rumored that the device will eventually work with Android N as default, which is the most recent version of the operating system.
This means that Google may finish the newest edition of its platform before this summer date. This seems possible, as a beta version for the recent form of Android has been offered for testing. It is good to remember that the Korean giant is apparently forcing gadget launches even earlier than before, and this does looks to be the case here too.
With Apple being the prominent company in the market with its famous iPhone series, it now appears that Samsung wants to make sure that its Galaxy phones are not launched during the same time with the iPhones.
If this tactic will be successful we will see in the next months, but it is sure that Samsung may experience difficulties in the expanding and rather stagnant cellular industry. Apple has expected that it would focus less on iPhones this year in comparison to 2015.
If the Cupertino company’s forecast is correct, this will be the first regress in sales since the first iPhone was launched seven years ago. And Samsung maybe faces more risks from other producers than Apple, due to the much more affordable Android smart phones.
These are firms will become important brands in many Western countries, threatening Samsung’s already shaking business. So the company may be moving the launch of its Note 6 from the iPhone 7 phablet, which will be presented in Sept or maybe even later according to the latest rumors.
