Galaxy Note 5 vs. Galaxy Note 4: 5 Things We Learned in June

June produced a number of important Samsung Galaxy Note 5 details. And with a Galaxy Note 5 release expected in September, we should see a number of new Galaxy Note 5 rumors emerge in the weeks ahead. That said, we want to focus on what we learned in June and today we take a look at how the device is stacking up with the Galaxy Note 4.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 first arrived on the scene in early 2014 as rumors started piecing together Samsung’s plans for the fall. In September, Samsung confirmed many of those rumors with a Galaxy Note 4 launch at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The Galaxy Note 4 was released just a few weeks later.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Release Isn't Close

If you're trying to decide between buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to arrive, know that you're several weeks away at the very least. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch date hasn't firmed up. Neither has the Galaxy Note 5 release date. That said, most believe that the Galaxy Note 5 launch will come in and around the start of IFA 2015 in Berlin, Germany. IFA 2015 kicks off on September 4th. This is where Samsung always launches its new Galaxy Note and it's what consumers have come to expect from it each year.

Galaxy Note 5 rumors have pointed to an early launch in August and that's looking like that's probably the best case scenario for those of you getting anxious. 

As for the Galaxy Note 5 release date, we don't know much. Samsung executives recently confirmed plans to launch Samsung Pay, its Apple Pay competitor, in September. Analysts believe that it will arrive alongside the Galaxy Note 5. In other words, they think the Galaxy Note 5 will come in September.
