Note 5 and S6 edge Plus may cannibalize each other, as August release is tipped again

Galaxy S6 edge Plus was supposed to be unveiled. The S6 edge Plus is expected to be a larger, 5.7" variation of the edgy flagship, while the Note 5 would set itself apart with the S Pen stylus functionality.Now, more sources have apparently confirmed for Korean media that Samsung has indeed pulled the Note 5 announcement for August, but the concern is that this is the same month when the rumored
The problem, according to local analysts, is that the two handsets are expected to sport the same or very similar screen diagonals, both with 2K resolution, and might cannibalize each other's sales, rather than make a headstart against the iPhone 6s Plus that will be released about a month later. What do you think, could this eventual Samsung strategy for announcing the Note 5 earlier alongside an S6 edge Plus backfire in the end?

Hmm... not so sure if cannibalize is used correctly here. You mean compete? They're not products from the same company.

I don't get it: why does Samsung release a phone like the S6 Plus? If the screen is pretty much the same to the note 5 , why should anyone buy the S6 Plus instead of the Note 5? What's the deal here? Seems to me that Samsung still floods the market with dozens of new models instead of focussing on a few good ones and take care of the software part. Not very helpful for people looking for a new phone to decide which one is the best. In my eyes the best strategy would be to focus on a few segments like entry/cheap, mid range, high end and business. they could save a lot of development ressources and could finally improve the software to an acceptable level

SamMobile is expecting a 5.67" display, i hope not, give us a 5.9 or 6" Note 5 and USB Type C. I can live without removable battery and no SD card slot, as long they will sell the silver or white variant in 128GB or even 256GB configurations. And hurry up when Android M releases, i don't want the same threatment as the Note 4.

No, they won't. When Note 4 and Note edge came together, did they cannibalize?

Samsung released Note 4 and Note 4 Edge last year. This year there are no plans to release a Note 5 Edge. Some people don't care about a S Pen, even some people who buy a Samsung Note just simply don't use it. So it's much easier to release a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus to take the place of a Note 5 Edge. And both of them will be available before iPhone 6S Plus release. Of course Apple's "fan base" will wait for 6S Plus release, but the ones who are not "that" loyal will have two extra options to choose from.

It dosen't matter what their called, one will come with edges and one won't. And maybe both will come with the same screen size, so the difference will be the S pen in the regular and the edges for flash folk. I'm more concerned in what the internal specs will be! If i see crapdragon anywhere near any of these they can forget it!

The question is whether the sales of the two devices together will outnumber sales if only one was launched. I suspect the answer is that sales of the two devices together will in fact create more sales. If that's the case, then no "cannibalization" will occur, right?

S Series: phones Note Series: phablets Some people in Samsung's marketing obviously don't get the branding knowledge. Be distinct Samsung, you should let the dying 'plus' branding crap on apple's business model.
