HTC is reportedly gearing up to take on the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 with a flagship phablet of its own called the HTC One M8 Max. The device will reportedly offer a 5.5-inch display — the same as the 6 Plus — with a super sharp Quad HD resolution.

T-Mobile has begun taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ahead of its U.S. launch on October 17. You can either pay full price for the unlocked device, or you can spread the cost over 24 months and pay nothing upfront.

When Samsung first unveiled the Galaxy Note in 2011, a lot of people laughed. Heck, I know I did: I said at the time that Samsung’s ginormous new product was a rip-off of the Apple Newton.

However, with the iPhone 6 Plus landing on Friday, I’ll be the first person to admit that while I still think a 5.5-inch smartphone is ridiculous, a lot of people seem to want one.

So when Samsung releases an ad, serving up claim chowder to all the journalists like Mashable, Boy Genius Report, and the Wall Street Journal who laughed at the Note three years ago, I have to say, they have it coming to them. They were right!

Check out Samsung’s full ad after the jump, in which Samsung talks a little bit about the many useful things you can do with a larger display.

Samsung has published another teaser video entitled “Expect Note” that hopes to excite Galaxy Note fans ahead of the company’s Unpacked event at IFA next week, where it will announce the latest addition to its phablet family. The one-minute clip again hints at a focus on handwriting and S Pen stylus improvements.

LG has officially announced the G3 Stylus ahead of IFA 2014. The new phablet is here to take on Samsung’s successful Galaxy Note series, and it looks almost identical to the flagship G3 — but it’s nowhere near as exciting internally. Those hoping for stellar specs might want to look away now.
