Samsung sets sights on the iPhone 6S, may announce the Galaxy Note 5 in July

We all know that engineers at Samsung are hard at work in developing the Galaxy Note 5, and it was expected that the company would traditionally announce it during IFA 2015. Now, a report from WhoWired Korea is claiming that Samsung might drop the bomb sooner than expected as it is trying to outmatch Apple by announcing its next flagship smartphone ahead of the iPhone 6S’ possible announcement in August.

According to the report, Samsung has finalised the specifications of the Galaxy Note 5, and already showcased it to its global telecom partners. Apparently, Samsung has plans to complete the prototype by mid-June, and take pre-orders before the launch at the end of July. There is a slight possibility of this report being true, but you should take this with a pinch of salt.

Samsung has experienced less than stellar sales of its Galaxy Note series devices, thanks to Apple’s entry into the phablet category with the iPhone 6 Plus. Previously, we reported that the Galaxy Note 5 could feature a 2K or a 4K display and an Exynos 7 processor with an inbuilt homegrown modem. Samsung is also expected to announce its first round smartwatch (Gear A), which runs on a newer version of Tizen, alongside the Galaxy Note 5.

Is it too much to ask for both timely, reasonable quality updates when your paying in excess of £500 for a device?

Damn Correct !! when they can Manufacture 4 Flagships per year, why not Updates?? Note 4 with 5.0.1 is damn buggy.. Samsung need to Improve their Software as we are saying from S3’s Touchwiz 🙁

Apple have a long term update policy with respect to their smartphone users, I have a Samsung Note 4 where update & respect is something missing from Samsung dictionary. the Note 4 latest update Lollipop 5.0.1 suffer from serious issues & it is not stable also, Samsung ignoring that & trying to rush the Note 5 announcement, they want to get your money then they will ignore you again after 3 or 4 months, to think about Galaxy S7 & Note 6. my next device for sure will not be from Samsung. Guys be careful when you buy Samsung Smartphones… Read more »

The only thing making me nervous is this “home grown” modem business. I forsee a lot of issues with this. Seems to be their track record. Just hope they take the time and not rush things just to beat Apple. Since this will be my next phone most likely.

I don’t doubt it for a moment. The people who said they throw everything at the wall and just see what sticks, were right. The Note 4 apparently wasn’t good enough. That hasn’t been my experience with it. It is far more capable than Samsung gives it credit for. What a waste.

Good move to get it out before Apple offers iPhone 6s plus and many who will have ordered the note 4 last year got the iPhone 6 plus due to the delay of the note 4 due to the metal being used to make it, plus all they have to do is make the same Samsung edge 6 design and they got an iPhone plus winning put they need to get it out before they show off the iPhone plus, it will make look crap

Actually the iPhone 6+ had less of a draw on Android users than the previous generation so anyone who had preordered the note4 is highly unlikely to gone for a considerably less competent alternative like the iPhone

I doubt it.
Instead, Sam should deliver flagship fast just after launching event.
People cannot wait new phone for 1 month!
