Samsung believes the hype and wants to get out in front of it

Marc Sanchez Aug 3, 2012

Samsung, presumably after hearing the rumors that its biggest competitor, Apple, is going to come out with a new iPhone on September 12, has announced it will unveil the newest version of the Galaxy note on August 29.

Reuters reports:

South Korean media reports speculate the new Galaxy Note may feature an unbreakable, 5.5-inch display – slightly larger than the current one – as well as a faster processor and a much better camera.

One thing it will be missing: an Apple logo. But that hasn’t stopped Samsung thus far. The company recently overtook Apple to become the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer. Given that Apple is currently suing Samsung over some iPhone patent infringements and design features, I’m sure Samsung hopes that the new Galaxy Note looks and acts nothing like the next iPhone. Chances are pretty good, however, that both phones are going to be pretty similar.
