J.K. Shin shoots down rumor of early Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch
posted by Alan F. / May 20, 2015, 5:01 AM
Everything seemed to fit into place when a separate rumor indicated that Apple would be able to launch its new iPhone 6s models in August instead of September, as usual. High yields achieved by Apple's supply chain for components was the alleged reason why Apple would be early with the iPhone release this year.
It all made sense. Samsung had apparently received market intelligence about Apple's supply chain success and decided to cut Apple off at the pass. While it does all seem to fit perfectly, reports of an early introduction of the Galaxy Note 5 are not true. Samsung Mobile president J.K. Shin made it clear today that the Galaxy Note 5 is not coming to market earlier than it usually does.
Shin did have another rumor to shoot down as well. Responding to speculation that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge were performing poorly at the cash registers, Shin said that this was false. On Tuesday, there was talk that both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge had taken longer to hit the 10 million sales benchmark than both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.
One rumor that the executive interestingly failed to address, was the one that says Samsung will be releasing another Edge smartphone before the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is unveiled in September. In this case, what Shin didn't say could turn out to be more important than what he said.
Thanks for the tip!

Shin said Note 5 is not coming to market earlier than it usually does. He didn't said Note 5 Edge won't be coming before September. So maybe Sammy might bring Note 5 Edge by the end of July and the regular Note 5 in September. This is in line with PA's report of another edge phone from Sammy. By doing so, Sammy got the Iphone 6s covered with their premium offering of Note 5 edge and once the iphone 6s starts hits the local stores, then sammy will launch their regular Note 5 which will be cheaper than Note 5 Edge and iphone 6s. So they got it all covered. Just my thought !

The July phone is Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus & Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Galaxy Note 5 & Galaxy Note 5 Edge will be launched in October.

Dafuq...S6 Plus? You pulling an Apple or something? How can they "Plus" the S6 when it's already great (aside from the microSD card slot and waterproofing)? The fugly S6 Active sounds more possible though.

Why would he comment on a mid range experiment phone like the sequel to the Galaxy Round? That's what this new edge phibe will probably be, something like a more useful version of the round. Maybe it's going to be like the s6 edge but with less of a bend?
