Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to be released before iPhone 7

Samsung could be ready to move the launch of its flagship phablet — the Galaxy Note 6 — forward as it seeks to capitalize on the success of the early release of its Galaxy S7 smartphones.

Samsung has forecast better-than-expected results for the first quarter of 2016 thanks to booming sales of its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, which were launched at the end of February and went on sale in March — a full month ahead of their predecessors — the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge — in 2015 and crucially well ahead of rivals like LG’s G5, Huawei’s P9 and Apple’s redesigned 4-inch smartphone the iPhone SE.
