Galaxy Note 5 September launch accidentally confirmed by Samsung executive

We know that the Galaxy Note 5 will be released after the summer, traditionally Samsung has opted for IFA to unveil this high-end handset and it looks like the company is sticking with tradition this time around as well. During a conference call with investors Samsung executive vice president Injong Rhee let the Galaxy Note 5 September launch timeframe slip. Then again, it wasn’t surprising at all since Samsung has previously released new Galaxy Note handsets in September.

Rhee was actually talking about Samsung Pay, the company’s new payments service which has been delayed from July to September. Initially Samsung Pay is going to be launched in the United States and South Korea before it’s expanded to China and Europe. Rhee said that Samsung Pay will first be deployed on the company’s next high-end handset and it’s clear that he means the Galaxy Note 5, he also added that the company hopes up to 20% of its smartphone owners will use the payments service. IFA 2015 starts off on September 4th, that’s when the Galaxy Note 5 is very likely to be unveiled and from the looks of it customers may not have to wait for too long following the announcement to actually go out and buy Samsung’s next high-end handset.

Don’t know, I’m quite happy with my Note 4. Depends solely on specs.

I’ll be happy if it looks exactly like a GS6, but with a much larger battery and SD card slot. I don’t need a 4K screen.

I want to replace my S5 SM-G900H with a Note 5, let’s hope it keeps at least the SD card slot. Can’t wait!

I’m only buying IF. it is 5.7″ or more and has MicroSD slot.
If I’m going to pay $1000.00 for a gadget, it’s going to be a heck of a gadget. Otherwise I’ll buy a cheaper note 4 or nexus 6 (big screen is very important to us boomers)
