SAM­SUNG NEEDS HIT WITH GALAXY NOTE 4 AS AP­PLE PREPS PH­ABLET

-

While Ap­ple’s iPhone and Sam­sung’s Galaxy S smart­phone fran­chises have duked it out for flag­ship supremacy, Sam­sung’s other mar­quee smart­phone line, the Galaxy Note, has en­joyed the lack of op­po­si­tion in serv­ing power users will­ing to pay up for a much larger dis­play — a mar­ket it es­sen­tially cre­ated, says CNET. But the Galaxy Note 4, which will be un­veiled at Sam­sung’s “Un­packed” event Wed­nes­day, may no longer be the only le­git­i­mate jumbo phone in the mar­ket — Ap­ple is ex­pected to un­veil two larger iPhones next week.

The Un­packed event comes at a crit­i­cal time for Sam­sung. While the Galaxy Note line has al­ways played sec­ond fid­dle to the Galaxy S line, the Note 4 ar­rives as more con­sumers are will­ing to tol­er­ate the bulk­i­ness of a larger dis­play.
