iPhone 5 vs Galaxy Note 2 real? Rumors suggest early release date

New rumors suggest the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is headed to the market by the end of September and the device will hit be unveiled late August. Coincidentally, iPhone 5 rumors suggest that the new Apple smartphone is joining the market by the end of October. Can Samsung lure customers by launching the device a month ahead of Apple’s? The rumor mill intensifies today with new claims that Samsung’s next flagship device is headed to the smartphone market before the end of September and Samsung will reportedly announce the phone’s existence on August 30. According to Slashgear, Samsung’s new Android-based handset will be at this year’s IFA event in Berlin and the popular phone maker is now planning a mega-launch at the event just for the new device. The rumored phone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, is a larger Android smartphone says rumors reportedly boasting a 5.5-inch display, and will use the same quad-core Exynos 4 system-on-a-chip found in the Samsung Galaxy S3′s, plus other features like 13MP camera, 2GB RAM, and a more premium build. But the bigger story surrounding the Galaxy Note 2 is not the hardware, but its “out of the box” software. As reported by CNET a couple of days ago, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is reportedly shipping with Android Jelly Bean, the version 4.1 of the popular Google platform which boasts a slew of new features including the Google Now platform, a Siri-like service that customers can tap to take advantage of Google’s product and services like maps, Zagat, weather, and the core search including the search giant’s new Knowledge Graph. See the example in the video below. Based off the company’s original Galaxy Note model, Samsung is widely expected to launch the device with AT&T’s 4G LTE network, but branching out to Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile is possible. According to a Samsung rep, the Galaxy Note is still selling well, and after its launch late last year, Samsung reportedly has shipped 5 million units since Q1 of 2012, and additional 2 million units for the second quarter of 2012. By comparison, according to Samsung, its strong phone lineup will enjoy a new record this quarter citing the projected 10 million Galaxy S3 sales mark before the end of July following the device’s launch last quarter. Apparently, the Galaxy S3 sells more than the larger Note. So, what’s the point of releasing a new smartphone? Well, experts believe that Samsung wants a device that can vie with Apple’s new iPhone, the long-rumored iPhone 5 that will reportedly join the lucrative smartphone market by the end of October. It is worth noting that Apple launched the iPhone 4S in second week of October. The latest reports suggest that Apple’s iPhone 5 is equipped with a larger display, possibly with 4 to 4.3-inch display, and pre-loaded with iOS 6, supports NFC and can access the LTE or Long Term Evolution networks of wireless providers. With iOS 6, Apple’s rumored new phone will support the new Siri with better information for sports, movies, and other information by retrieving information from its partners. One analyst is suggesting that an LTE iPhone 5 can outsell its Android counterparts whilst adding that Verizon and Sprint’s LTE networks might give Apple the a large chunk of share. If accurate, where does Samsung’s LTE Samsung Galaxy Note 2 fit in? Is the Note 2 really the solution? Or should Samsung update the Galaxy S3 to Jelly Bean first and just undercut the iPhone 5 on its launch date? 。 wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories
