June 23, 2012, 7:30 A.M. EDT — Samsung to release a new Galaxy Note in October? Plus, a new application will let Samsung steal iPhone customers.
Samsung Mobile launches a new software that will allow iPhone users to transfer files from their old Apple smartphone to a new Galaxy smartphone. According to Crave UK, Korean phone maker Samsung is offering customers in UK who want the a Galaxy device a free software or app that can transfer data from an iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy phone. The new app was launched in the United Kingdom weeks after Samsung launched the new Samsung Galaxy S3.
The app is called Easy Phone Sync, and it can transfer files and other data from the iPhone-like photos, videos, contacts, messages from an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to a Galaxy device like the Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, or the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Speaking of Galaxy Note, a new rumor is circulating online about the next version of the Samsung Galaxy Note, the first 5.3-inch Samsung Android smartphone. The device was launched last year, and it attracted nearly 10 million customers in less than two quarters. According to a Korean-based website, MK Business News, the next version of the Galaxy Note will include a quad-core processor, a tough plane display that will protect the 5.3-inch touchscreen display, a larger battery, possibly larger than the Samsung Galaxy S3′s 2100mAh — and finally, hopefully it is true, the Galaxy Note is reportedly shipping with a “sturdier build” possibly non-plastic. Apparently, critics of Samsung have been preaching that Samsung phones look cheap, plasticky and toy-like.
The report also added that the Galaxy Note 2 will ship with Android Jellybean out of the box. The next version of Android is not official yet, but rumor has it that Google will unveil the new OS at the Google I/O event later this week.
If the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 rumor is true, then it is highly possible that the device will compete with Apple’s next product, the iPhone 5. Similarly, iPhone 5 rumors suggest that the phone is getting an “October release date” too.
