Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Release Date, Specs Rumors: Bigger Screen Will Be One of Largest on Market


It's already been months since the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and it's safe to assume that the successor to the Galaxy Note 3 will be following close behind. The South Korean tech giant's latest addition to its flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 4, might see a release later this year.

There hasn't been any official announcement from Samsung regarding an exact release date but there are rumors that the phablet might come out in September. If anything, expect the phone to come out before the holiday season.

As for the specs that will come with the Note 4, there's nothing solid yet except for a few things. Since the competition is going by "bigger-is-better," the Note 4 could get an increase in screen size from the Galaxy Note 3's 5.7-inch screen. Possibly, the Note 4 might get an increase in screen size but it also might not.

In terms of resolution, the Note 4 might follow LG's G3 QHD screen displays. With that, the latest Samsung phablet might have a 2560 x 1440 screen resolution. There are speculations that the Note 4 will be using an AMOLED display since Samsung has done great with it but the company might just go with the PLS LCD instead.

So far Apple has been the only phone manufacturer to use 64-bit chipsets but Samsung might soon follow suit with the Note 4. Other spec details include the Note 4 sporting a Snapdragon 805 quad-core 2.5GHz processor with Krait 450. A more powerful graphics processor might also be included in the spec sheet, with an Adreno 420 processor. RAM will also get an upgrade to 4GB.

Naturally, the Note 4 won't come cheap and will most likely be even more expensive than the Galaxy S5.
