After the smartphones went on sale in September, it was extremely hard to track down both models, especially the large 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Apple increased production of the handset to try to meet demand and wait times for the company's first phablet now show a shipping estimate of 3-5 business days from its online store.

Samsung, on the other hand, has been in the phablet arena since it launched the original Galaxy Note in 2011 and this year the company took a two-pronged approach to maintaining its lead in the jumbo-sized smartphone market. Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 4 in October and quickly followed up with the curved-display Galaxy Note Edge in November. Now a new report claims that Samsung is planning to battle Apple's iPhone 6 Plus with its upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note Edge 6.
