- Picture: Samsung
An inside source in Korean media revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date will be in September 2014.
The news comes as no big surprise since the company normally drops its new flagship phablet around this time of year. Samsung is expected to announce the device at IFA in Berlin which runs from 5th to the 10th of Sept. It will go on sale shortly after that.
The source also claims that the Note 4 is about to go into mass production. The process is scheduled to begin between now and July.
A device believed to be the Galaxy Note 4 was recently run through AnTuTu benchmark tests. The results pointed to the phablet being 15 percent faster than the Note 3. This very same data was used last week to determine the specs that will appear on the Note 4 and it also reveals the difference in processing power with both of the upcoming models and current versions.
Two versions of the Note 4 will launch, according to the data with one model packing an Exynos 5433 chip and the other with a Snapdragon 805. The benchmarks show that the Exynos 5433 is the faster of the two, but even with that, the Snapdragon 805 bests the 801 and 800 by at least 15 percent. Those older chips can be found in the Note 3.
The listing also reveals a QHD 2560 x 1440 display for both versions of the device. Other specs found in the benchmark include Android 4.4.3, 3GB RAM and a 16-megapixel camera.
Other recent rumors discuss the choices Samsung plans to make when it comes to software for the phablet as the company plans to add a few new features including Swipe to Launch Motion Launcher and Smart Fingerprint.
