Last week, we heard a rumour that said that Samsung would be announcing its Galaxy Note 5 phablet earlier than its IFA timeslot, moving it up around a month to try and trump the inevitably popularity of the new iPhones being announced in September. That’s not the only device that Samsung is rumoured to be announcing in the near future, and the latest rumour is saying that both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge, will be announced at an event sometime in mid August.
If this turns out to be true, it will be a sign of just how desperate Samsung is to gain not only market share, but to combat Apple on its own terms. Despite this, there are a lot of analysts that believe this would be a poor move on Samsung’s part as its possible the release of both these large form factor devices would cannibalize sales of both devices. All the same, we’re very interested to see whether this rumour turns out to be true as Samsung has obviously been reluctant to speak about this matter publicly.
