Well this rumor is kind of a given really. Seeing as the Galaxy Note has been announced at IFA – which takes place the first week of September – for the past three years and it’s set to be announced there this year as well. So it would make sense for it to be released in September right? Well unless they mean the US, which we don’t expect to see it here until October. Similar to last year’s launch. This rumor comes out of ET News which is a Korean news outlet – and of course Samsung is from Korea. They are sometimes hit or miss with rumors and leaks. But this time I think they’re right, although I’m sure anyone could have published this rumor, and people think it’s true.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to be announced at IFA in Berlin in about 6 weeks. It’s supposedly being launched beside the Gear VR, which is their virtual headset. Think Google Glass, but from Samsung and for Samsung devices. Last year the Galaxy Note 3 launched along side the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, and the year before the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Camera launched together. There’s no confirmation on an Unpacked event for Samsung, but those event invites should be heading out the door pretty soon.
According to ET News, Samsung is looking to rush the Galaxy Note 4 out the door to try and combat the iPhone 6 which is due to launch that same month. Why are they worried about the iPhone 6? Well it looks like all the making fun of the small display is coming to bite Samsung in the butt, as Apple is rumored to be putting out a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch variant of the iPhone 6 in September. Which may sway a few Galaxy Note users over to Apple, or vice versa.
