Last year we saw the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which improved on its predecessor, the Note 2, in various ways and turned a bunch of heads. Following the success of the Note 3 it is only normal that Samsung would be launching the 4th device in the series which would most probably be titled the Note 4.
One more thing to keep in mind about Samsung and the Note 4 is that the company has been at a fairly steady decline recently and it will only go further unless they manage to bring out something revolutionary in their next flagship device and judging by what we’ve heard of the Note 4 so far, it definitely seems like a device that will turn the tides back into Samsung’s favor.
Before going into the specs and technical details of the device let’s get some main things like the release dates and price out of the way. From what has been revealed until now and calculating by previous Samsung release cycles, the most accurate prediction of the Note 4’s release date would probably be set in September and as for pricing, since the phone is packed with so much next generation hardware it is only normal that the expected price would reach at least somewhere around the 850$ mark at initial release.
Moving on to the screen size of the device let’s look at how the previous Note devices have turned out. The Note 1 had a 5.3 inch display; the Note 2 had a 5.5 inch display, the Note 3 had a 5.7 inch display so it’s pretty clear from the trend that each successive Note device has a screen size that is 0.2 inches larger than its predecessor so it really isn’t a far-fetched thought to expect that the Note 4 would be rocking a 5.9 inch display.
As for the inner hardware specifications, the phone has been confirmed to be running a QHD screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 and Gorilla Glass 3. As for screen technology, there have been rumors that the Note 4 might have a PLS display instead of their traditional AMOLED since it will reduce costs but this is still too soon to talk about.
Going further into the technical specifications, expect a 16 MP rear camera that is capable of recording videos at 2160p at 30 FPS and a 2 MP front facing camera that can record 1080p videos at 30 FPS.
The Note 4’ll most likely ship with a version of Android 4.4 Kitkat since Android L is still far from official release. Aside from this, expect your regular Quad-core/Octa-core processors and at the very least 3 GB of RAM included if not 4 GB. The GPU will most likely be an Adreno 420 or a Mali T-760 so you judging by these specifications you’ll be able to run any of the latest and hardware demanding Android apps for a long time to come.
