    Samsung and LG will release their flagship smartphones next month.

    Industry sources said Sunday that Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is set to be released on Sept. 15 with pre-orders starting from Sept. 1. LG is expected to release its flagship V30 at about the same time.

    Ahead of their releases here, the Note 8 will have a launch event in New York on Aug. 23, while the V30 will be unveiled at the IFA consumer electronics fair in Germany a week later.

    In the past, Samsung and LG have released their flagship gadgets and devices about a month apart in order not to affect each other's sales, but a fiercer than usual competition appears unavoidable this time with the simultaneous release.

    Industry insiders said the move was unlikely to have a great impact on their respective sales, and could even benefit both handset makers by generating increased interest among customers.
