According to a recent report from DigiTimes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (Note 4 shown below) will make its official debut on the 12th of August and go on sale two days after on the 14th of the same month. A new report from SamMobile, the source of accurate information on yet to be announced devices by Samsung, re-confirms that the device will be officially unveiled on the 12th of August, but says that the device will not be launched on the 14th but the 21st of August.
Going by Samsung’s usual launch schedule, the Galaxy Note 5 would be less than two months away from getting an official announcement at this point of time. Going by recent rumors, however, the time before the Note 5 is unveiled would be even shorter. Well, it looks like the latter is what we will have to believe in, as our insiders have revealed today the the Galaxy Note 5 will be announced on August 12, and go on sale around two weeks later on August 21.
We have also learned that the Galaxy S6 edge Plus will be launched as the Galaxy S6 edge+, and will be announced alongside the Note 5 on the same date (Update: it will also go on sale on August 21.) Samsung’s plan to launch two big handsets at the same time (and risking one device eating into the sales of the other) was leaked by a report out of the Korean press a few hours ago, and we can confirm that it is indeed what the company intends to do. The two devices will also be accompanied by the official launch of Samsung Pay, at least for the US market.
Despite SamMobile’s reputation for being accurate, since this is anything but official, take this information with a pinch of salt.
