iPhone 5 vs Galaxy Note 2: Release Date Strategies of Apple & Samsung

Apple’s fabled device iPhone 5 is eagerly awaited by millions of fans around the world. Even tech firms and investors are betting high on the next generation smartphone. But it is not just Apple’s iPhone that is grabbing the eyeballs, Samsung is expected to release the much-awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 2 before the iPhone 5 release. Several reliable reports on iPhone 5 and Galaxy Note 2 are frequently doing the internet rounds. Samsung is said to be upping their ante to cement its position in the smartphone market share before iPhone 5 takes away the show. A report from iMore says, Apple is planning an event on September 12 where the next generation iPhone will possibly be introduced. Nine days later, that is September 21, the smartphone will be released. Reputed new agencies such as Reuters, the New York Times and the Bloomberg have independently reported that Apple will announce the release of the iPhone 5 on the 12th of September in a keynote speech. It is not a rarity to see Apple making unanticipated moves when it comes to launching their products at different dates year after year. If iPhone 4 was unvieled in June 2010, iPhone 4S came up in October 2011 and now iPhone 5 during September 2012. All these events surely throws light on the smartphone war between Apple and Samsung. Both the giants have tasted success and downfalls in recent years. Taking a leaf from their on-going court disputes, the two tech manufacturers are playing it even while introducing their devices these days. Speaking of Samsung Galaxy Note, its is one such hybrid device that has attracted positive response from all quarters. More than 7 million Galaxy Note have been sold. Surely, Galaxy Note’s small brother Galaxy S3 helped the cause to a great extent as iPhone sales in second quarter revealed that the Cupertino giant could only sell 26 million units compared to 33.1 million in first quarter. And now another Samsung onslaught comes in the form of sequel to Galaxy Note. The upcoming Samsung Mobile Unpacked event, to take place at Berlin on August 29, will see the unveiling of all these new Samsung devices. The Press Conference is slated to begin on Thursday, August 30, starting at 11 AM. Besides smartphones, Samsung will also present products from the tablet, television and camera segments. Samsung’s full product lineup will be on display at Hall 20 and Hall 5.1 from August 31 until September 5. The livestream of the event will be showcased on “”. Tech enthuasiasts are presuming that the event’s main show-stealer would be Galaxy Note 2 or Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. In the past too, the original Galaxy Note was announced by Samsung during IFA 2011 in Berlin and the device was released to the public starting with Germany in late October 2011. A month later, the device was rolled out to major markets like East Asia, Europe and India, but reached the US shores only in February 2012. Reports point that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note 10.1 are both inspired by Galaxy S3. Hence one can expect a familiar design seen on Galaxy S3 in both the upcoming devices. Similar to Galaxy S3, Samsung may launch dual-core version in US and the international model is expected to come with powerful Exynos 4 quad-core processor. Rumors are also rife that Galaxy Note 2 will have 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 or 1680 x 1050 pixels. Other possible features include Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 1.5GB of RAM, 12-megapixel or 13-megapixel camera and 4G LTE connectivity. The camera details may be slightly overcooked as Samsung may opt for an 8-megapixel sensor in Note 2. Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 which was leaked recently in Korea had Android 4.0.4, 10.1-inch 1280×800 PLS 150 ppi display, 1.4 GHz quad-core processor with Exynos 4412 chipset, 5-megapixel with LED flash, 2 GB RAM, 5-megapixel camera, 1.9-megapixel secondary camera and a 7000 mAh battery. Coming to Apple’s event, it would showcase the much anticipated iPhone 5, the rumoured 7.85-inch iPad mini, iPod touch and the new iPod nano. Says iMore’s Rene Ritchie, “We haven’t heard a release date for the iPad mini yet, but it could be the same as the iPhone 5. It seems likely the new iPod touch will make an appearance on September 12 as well, though we haven’t heard any specific information about that yet either.” Apple iPhone 5′s rumored features include iOS 6 operating system, new Apple 3D mapping system, video chat, 4G LTE, 4-inch plus screen, tall and slimmer than its predecessors, NFC like feature Passbook app, a 8-megapixel camera sensor and improved version of Siri with multiple language support. As for pricing, Twitter was abuzz that the next iPhone 5 might cost close to $800 whereas Galaxy Note 2 is expected to sell at around $900-1000 without a contract, similar to the launch price of the original Note device. In the next few weeks, both Apple’s and Samsung’s devices will be seen hogging the attention in the smartphone stage. It will perhaps set new records in both sales and profit. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy
