As per a new rumour, Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 and Apple's newest iPhone 7 could be launched in India on the same day on Oct.7. At this point in time, it is worth noting that Samsung will resume sales of the Galaxy Note 7 from Sept.28 and newer units of the smartphone with corrected batteries are expected to be offered.

Now, as per a report in The Mobile Indian, there is a strong possibility of Samsung and Apple releasing their two important flagships on the same day by keeping in mind the practicalities of the release schedule in India. However, these developments are yet to go official and remain only as rumours at this point in time. Therefore, both Samsung and Apple loyalists are advised to take these developments with a pinch of salt till there is an official confirmation from both the companies.

Nonetheless, what is official at this point in time are the details related to the key technical specifications of both the smartphones. Even the pricing details of the high-end handsets are yet to be officially announced.
