Two new Apple iPhone models coming next quarter, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to launch as soon as July?

Apple CEO Tim Cook appeared at D11 on Tuesday night and gave an explanation why Apple doesn't release more than one variation of the Apple iPhone each year; on the other hand, the executive seemed to open the door a little, to the idea that more than one version of the phone could be launched at the same time...

July would be too early for the Note III launch. First there's a lot of controlled leakage to be expected leading up to the announcement then there's the Snapdragon 800 that's not quite ready yet. And then there's the scheduling, Samsung likes to give the S series enough time before coming hyping up the other flagship line, not to distract one's sales with the other's. Plus there's no rush. If they announce it in August and release it early September, ppl. will buy it like hotcakes. I might wait for it just for the OIS and 60FPS / 4k video.

Note 3 is another class, you can't compare it to SGS4

Yes I can if I'm John Doe of non-tech guru and getting mixed signals with Samsung advertising both flagships equally strong. The reason for the 6-month gap in announcement is the advertising campaigns not to get mixed up. There's no sense releasing the product in 5 weeks, the S4 is barely out.

android_hitman means that the Note III is another class, phablet class. The S4 will never suffer from the release of the Note III. 2 different markets as proven with the S3 & Note II.
That is what he means by a different class compared to the S4.

And not for John Doe was my answer. He goes in, sees a very big screen phone (S4) and than an even bigger screen phone (NIII) both being advertised as the "next big thing", now he's confused Which is why Samsung smartly decided to release the two flagships in 6 months cycles, so just when S4 hype loses steam, the NIII starts, keeping Samsung always in the news.
Plus there are millions of avid fans now who bought the excellent S2, then wow look at that ICS/720p GNexus and bought that one, then the awesome SIII, then the multi-window/airview wonder Note II, now the epic 1080p S4, and providing enough time has passed to get a little bored of the Life Companion, they'll get the Monster. So yes, the 6m release makes sense both ways.

I totaly agree with that. If people were skeptical about the original Galaxy Note and stuck with the S2..........what would make this any different? Id be surprised if they release the Note III this early

The Samsung Galaxy Note III is from the future compared to the iPhone 5 , 5S, & whatever they decide to call the next iPhones.

Sounds like you are talking about android 2.2.

-_- you one stupid person!
Note = S series with a bigger screen and stylus.
that said, Note 3 is going to be more disappointing then S4.
dislike all u want, im a samsung user myself so my hate to them is just a rage for being s**tty company when they can be really good. they are full of potential but they decide to be s**t.

wow, I stopped reading after you called the other guy stupid, hypocrisy/irony much?

as an iPhone user myself...i'd have to disagree w/this statement. S4 is a pretty well crafted product from the outer shell to the internals. the only reason i haven't made the jump yet is that i'm not ready to transition from the iCloud to another alternative. also i still prefer the iOS mp3 interface to any other so i would have to look at getting an iPod if i go w/the S4. not sure if i'm ready to do all of that.

I would love to see a bigger iPhone in the market and its pretty early for Note 3, but looking at Samsung , i am sure they would make a beast out of it....Can't wait

I don't believe anything in this post other than the fact that the Note 3 will have a 13MP camera. Samsung isn't going to release the N3 before September in Berlin, and Apple won't release two phones.

There's only so much crow Apple can eat. They already had to increase the iPhone's screen to 4" and offer an 8" iPad to compete with Android, both ideas Steve railed against back in the day. Offering a phablet or even a 4.7" iPhone would be completely out of character.

What is this, the playground? Giant multinationals don't care who did it first, only fanboys do. I'm sure Apple feels so burned by having to follow someone else's act, and then selling more 7" tablets in their slow quarter than any one company has sold of tablets in the last 12 months. I'm positive they would hang their heads in shame if they made a larger version of the world's best-selling smartphone.
Burn, Cupertino, you just got served by the companies who are picking up your scraps.
