Samsung has announced that it will unveil its next Galaxy Note smartphone at an event towards the end of the month, pre-empting Apple's expected release of the iPhone 5 a month or two later.

 
A spokesperson for the company confirmed that the new Galaxy Note will be showcased at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event in Berlin on 29 August.
 
Samsung has not revealed the spec of the upcoming device, but reports from South Korean media suggest it will have an extra-durable 5.5-inch display, a faster processor, and a better camera.

The move will see Samsung's latest model hit the shops before the highly-anticipated new iPhone, widely believed to be announced in September, with a possible launch in October. Samsung has been stealing much of the limelight from Apple in recent months, overtaking it last year as the top smartphone manufacturer in the world and shipping nearly twice as many smartphones in its most recent quarter, while Apple saw a 26 percent decline in shipments as consumers wait for the next model.
 
The two companies are currently embroiled in a bitter legal dispute over who copied who, with a high-profile case currently being heard in the US. The battle has extended beyond just the companies, with Samsung's top lawyer under fire over authorising the release of inadmissible evidence to the media, which he claims was already out in the open. 
 
While the future of this case remains unknown, we can be sure that the two technology giants will continue to butt heads as they launch new products in this lucrative market.
