Now Samsung has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will go on sale in South Korea on the 26th of September, the handset will launch with three major carriers in the country, SKT, KT and LG U+.
The reason that Samsung has decided to launch the Galaxy Note 4 earlier than previously planned, it to combat Apple’s launch of their new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, this was confirmed to the Korea Times by a Samsung Executive, you can see a statement below.
“the positive reaction from consumers to those two Apple devices prompted us to launch the Note 4 earlier than previously scheduled“.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note range of handsets have been the most popular Phablets for some time, but now with the new larger iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung is obviously worried about losing some of their Phablet customers to Apple, and have decided to launch the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 earlier than they had planned.
It will be interesting to see whether Apple’s new larger iPhone 6 handsets have any effect on Samsung’s sales of their Phablet device, as especially the new Note 4.
