A fresh report claims that Samsung's next-gen phablet will launch in August, to avoid hitting the market after Apple's new iPhone, which is expected in September.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was expected to arrive in October, but things appear to have changed. Not long after Samsung denied the rumors claiming this next-gen phablet is set for a July launch, insiders familiar with this matter mentioned that the South Korean giant decided to unleash the device before the summer's end. The main reason appears to be the imminent launch of a new iPhone, which is expected to take place in late September.

In an article that has just been published by The Wall Street Journal, an inside source mentioned that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is set for a mid-August launch, so that the phablet can enjoy "some breathing room," as iPhone 6s is expected to launch on September 25. The same source revealed that Samsung might launch the new phablet in the US while the first four Galaxy Note generations took off at the IFA trade show in Berlin.

Older leaks also revealed that a larger Galaxy S6 Edge version is also under development, but nothing has been confirmed so far. The Galaxy Note 5 is expected to feature a Samsung Exynos 7422 chipset, a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, as well as a metal and glass design similar to the Galaxy S6. We will get back to this topic as soon as we hear more, so stay tuned.
