A more definite launch date range for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has been revealed.
According to Korean website ET News, the first five million Galaxy Note 4 units will be produced in August, and could go on sale as early as the beginning of September.
The rush to push out the Galaxy Note 4 was supposedly influenced by the fact that the Galaxy S5 underperformed during its release window, and this caused Samsung to tweak its strategy for the remainder of 2014.
This stacks up with rumors that the Galaxy Note 4 will be launch at a pre-IFA 2014 Samsung Unpacked event on September 3.
If ET News’ information is accurate, Samsung could even be selling the “phablet” at the Unpacked event, or very shortly after the event.
Officially, Samsung has not given a specific release date.
Samsung executive Yoon Han-kil did however told Reuters that the phablet will be released in the second half of 2014.
