MONITORING REPORT ISB: Samsung has announced to launch its brand new Galaxy Note 4 “phablet” ahead of schedule in China and South Korea.

According to details, with Apple reporting record-breaking sales of its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus, Samsung has responded by getting its new product out in the two vast Asian markets at the earliest possible date.

Samsungs new phone was initially set for an October release, but will now hit shelves in China and South Korea later this week. The UK release date remains set at October 10. Apples new phones are already widely available in the UK and other markets such as France, Japan and Hong Kong.

The Galaxy Note 4 has a 5.7 inch HD screen – the same size as Apples iPhone 6 Plus, the largest iPhone so far. Apples first foray into the “phablet” market has been a great success, with both new iPhones selling over £10m.

As Apple are still awaiting permission from Chinese regulators to sell in the country, Samsung have stolen a march on their competition by releasing their new product to the largest iPhone market in the world.

Mobile marketing experts say MobiBanking, China, has over one billion mobile subscriptions.
