Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be released after September 15th

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be released after September 15th
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 announcement date has been finalized, and it sounds like Samsung may be planning to announce the rumored Gear Solo at the same time. Of course, that still leaves a question as to when the Galaxy Note 4 will be released. A new bit of evidence is giving a hint that the release might come during the last two weeks of September.

The information comes from a leaked document that appears to be directly from Samsung, and it warns employees that there will be a blackout period on paid time off (PTO) set for September 15th to the 28th. Obviously, that doesn't prove a release, but it is a strong indication, because only a major release would lead to a PTO blackout. It is an oddly long blackout period, which could mean one of two things. Either Samsung is planning a rolling release of the Note 4, or Samsung hasn't actually settled on a release date yet. 

Samsung undoubtedly wants to beat the iPhone 6 to market, so it is possible that Samsung is delaying in choosing a specific release date in case rumors start to peg a date for Apple's next flagship. Whatever the plan is, we should find out in less than one month.

So a few days ago it was Sept. 3rd and now it is Sept. 15th. Why do I feel they always change it when the media catches up with release dates.

September 3rd is the announcement date. It doesn't come out the day it's announced.

They could copycat what HTC did with the M8.

If you're expecting something mind blowing would you care to share your insights? I could not think of any oh btw, if you want your opinion to be taken seriously, cut your uber-fanboyism.... .. just a tip man don't get me wrong here i own two Samsung devices, but i don't like their current direction atm You sound like a Samsung salesman every time you're spewing something

A Samsung salesman with a HTC M8. Sounds legit.

I hope that it's worth buying because if I'm not totally impressed then I'll buy the Note 3 and cal it a day

Samsung slotting in their beast of 2014 before Apple can land their big guns. That said, somehow I get the feeling that other than the Apple iPhone getting bigger screen sizes (big news for Apple fans, but a yawn for everyone else) that 2014 is going to be something of a dud year for smartphones. Including the Note 4. QHD AMOLED sounds fun, but Samsung may still go for FHD, like the Note 3, so they can make more profits. September cannot come too fast, so all the leaks and rumors can finally be laid to rest.

So when will they release the Galaxy Note 4 prime? i'll just wait for that one.

Hopefully they don't do things like they did with the Galaxy S5 "Prime" and make it a Korea-only release.

Well I guess that since it's shaping up to be a beast, they need more time for preparations >:)
