The Samsung Galaxy S4 hit the market a couple of months ago, and as expected quickly became one of the dominant smartphone models of the year. With over 10 million sales during its first month, the device certainly got off to a good start, but recent reports have suggested that demand for the phone is beginning to slow down due to increasingly impressive competition from competing manufacturers.
Due to a decline in demand, it has been reported that Samsung has begun to reduce orders for Galaxy S4 components. As a result, Unwired View has reported that this has left Samsung's component suppliers sitting on huge inventories of unused Galaxy S4 parts. However, Samsung is also believed to launch another high end device this year, the Galaxy Note 3 phablet. Following the millions of sales and widespread critical acclaim achieved by the current Galaxy Note 2 model, it remains a market leader in the phablet niche, it is expected that the Galaxy Note 3 will also be a bestselling device.
The website further reports that because a number of
hardware components of the Galaxy Note 3 will be the same as the Galaxy S4, the
company will be able to use unused Galaxy S4 parts for production of its latest
phablet model. These include the likes of a 13 megapixel camera and 1.9 GHz
dual-core processor. The website has reported that Samsung is likely to begin
placing orders for Galaxy Note 3 components imminently, and begin mass
production of the handset by early August. This time frame certainly coincides
with the rumoured announcement date for the phone, which is set to take place
in September at the IFA expo in Berlin. In 2011 and 2012 respectively, Samsung
used the same event to announce the original Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2
models. Details on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 are abaialble on our website, and you can compare Samsung Galaxy Note 2 deals also.
Of course, many of the other components of the Galaxy Note 3 will differ from those of the galaxy S4. While it is likely to include the same camera module and processing units, the phone will of course pack a much larger display. Of course, the current Galaxy Note 2 model is a sizable device in its own right, thanks to a 5.5 inch super AMOLED display. However, the touchscreen of the Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be larger still, measuring between 5.7 and 6 inches.
Because the Galaxy Note 3 has been such an eagerly anticipated device, we expect much more information to be revealed soon, so we will be sure to keep you updated.Source:
