As the moment, there are several things happening in the smartphone market. One of the most apparent things is the rivalry between Apple and Samsung. Its not just the patent war that has been fought by these two tech giants since ages but also market has become an imminent destination for battling for them.
While Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been making record sales, Samsung has also made a choice to bring forward the release date of its latest flagship device - the Galaxy Note 4.
The Galaxy Note 4 was supposed to be launched in South Korea on September 26 but prior to its official release, the country's major telecom carriers, SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus had started taking the pre-orders from September 18. Now, all three major carriers in South Korea have reported that they have sold out all their pre-order supplies for the Galaxy Note 4.
Apparantly, SK Telecom, which is the country's largest carrier, managed to sell out all its Galaxy Note 4 pre-order allotments in just 9 hours. KT and LG Uplus also managed to sell out the pre-orders within three days. So there is no way for South Korean consumers to pre-order the device as they have to wait till Friday when the device is expected to be launched. The Galaxy Note 4 was unveiled earlier this month and will be sold for around $919 SIM-free in South Korea.
No word on when the device will launch in India, but you can check out the specs of the handset below:
