    It was just recently that rumors started circulating the web that Apple would be holding an event on September 9th to announce the upcoming iPhone 6. However, it seems Korean-based company Samsung is looking to capture the crowd with their “Unpacked” event, said to be held 6 days before Apple’s. At Samsung’s event, the company is expected to announce their next generation Note 4. Note the date invitations for September 3rd were sent out this week where the Korean-based company will be hosting events in New York, Berlin, and Beijing at the same time.

    Rumors have also been going around saying Apple would be releasing a 5.5-inch ‘phablet’ this year along with the 4.7-inch. We’re sure this rumor will be settled at the September 9th event. According to previous years, Apple has always opened their newest device to the public 10 days after announcing it. If this year were to follow previous trends, the iPhone 6 would be launched on September 19th.

    Samsung’s anticipated new Galaxy Note is said to have a ‘premium’ feel and be water resistant, similar to the Galaxy S4. However, even though the Korean-based company’s event is set to take place before Apple’s, the device itself may not release before the iPhone 6. Previously, the Note 3 was announced at an event on September 4th but was not released to the public until September 25th. This marked a 3-week gap in between the two.

    Which device do you think will be more popular this year? Let us know your thoughts below.

    So... If they don't want to wait in line to see Apple launch the iPhone 6, or couldn't get tickets, they can go to Samsung's event!

    Just goes to show, Samsung is really feeling to heat now. Samsung, if you're not coming up with original ideas, you can't keep copying Apple forever. Apple announces something and Samsung races to spit out a half cocked product.

    moves like this just make Samsung wreak of insecurity (not that their commercials don't already) and flies in the face of their stance that they're products are superior. The only reaosn to do this it hope to capture the attention and commitment of someone before you think something better might come along you're device can't compete with.

    Also, if you really want to know what will come out of the Samsung event: I'll give you the exclusive preview:
    - screen size bump by 0.1"
    - moderate speed bump
    - more gimmicky apps nobody will really use after day 1.

    You're welcome.

    LOL, you are correct but the note 3 already has 3 GB of RAM. I'm not sure they will bump that up any as the phone is already pretty damn fast. However, let's not pretend that Apple doesn't do the same thing with their incremental updates with devices. The always release "S" models which is the exact same phone with a few extra features. LOL. The truth is, smart phones do so much now as it is, it's hard for them to come up with new groundbreaking technology every 12 months.
