Leaked Document Reveals Launch Dates Of The Samsung Galaxy Note10, Pixel 4 and iPhone XI
The second half of the year usually sees a load of high-profile ultra-premium flagships being launched. We often to know details around them via leaks a few months before the actual launch, but what we have with us today is a treasure chest of information that should have been a secret. Some marketing material from Verizon seems to have been leaked, revealing the approximate launch dates of major flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy Note10, Google Pixel 4 and even the Apple iPhone XI.
The cropped image, shared by , seems to be a chart that graphically reveals the launch dates of multiple other smartphones too, but the crop has left only the “Tier 1” smartphones behind.There are month-long cells, with markings suggesting a rough estimate of when the device is expected to be launched. Business partners such as Verizon are equipped with such data way before the final launch, so they can prepare for it from their side as well.
The Samsung Galaxy Note10 seems to launch in the second half of August, a little later than the first week of August launch we saw for the Note9. The Note10 has been leaked extensively, and the only thing we are hoping to learn is if they will share any information around the Galaxy Fold.
Next up, is the launch of the next iPhones. Generally, new iPhones are unveiled in the first half of September, but this year, they might launch towards the end of the month. Three iPhones are expected this year, with two mainstream flagships of different sizes and a third slightly affordable one. All of them are expected to get an extra ultrawide camera for more versatile photography, along with the new Apple A13 chipset.
Lastly, the Google Pixel 4 is expected to in mid-October, which is a little later than the past years. Unlike other smartphone brands, Google is not beating around the bush with the leaks of the Pixel 4, and in fact, went ahead and even shared images of the upcoming Google flagship on Twitter like it’s no big deal.
Most of these launches are still pretty close to when we expect them to be launched, and come as no surprise. Having said that, since this document is likely to have been prepared months in advance, some dates could change. This massive leak is just another reminder of how many parties in a chain are involved, and can be the culprit for the leaks we regularly get and enjoy.
