A report from the Korean media claims that Samsung intends to launch the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ in August thereby corroborating previous reports on the same topic.

Samsung has usually launched its flagship Galaxy Note device at IFA every year, but this year, the company has decided to bring forward the unveiling of the device to fend off competition from the upcoming iPhones and to counteract the slowing sales of its flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

The report claims that Samsung is expected to hold an event on August 13 — a date that we have heard before in previous reports.

Leaks and reports indicate that the Galaxy Note 5 will come with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display, an Exynos 7422 SoC, 4GB RAM, and a 16MP rear camera. The device is expected to come with a design language that is similar to the Galaxy S6, which means that it will likely not come with a removable battery and a microSD card slot.

As for the Galaxy S6 edge+, it is going to be just a bigger version of the Galaxy S6 edge and will feature a similar curved display. Under the hood though, the device is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor, sport 3GB RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery.

Will you be buying the Galaxy Note 5 when it is launched by Samsung in August this year or will you wait for the new iPhones to arrive before making a decision?
