A new report released today, June 11 will no doubt please fans of Samsung's Galaxy Note series of devices. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is perhaps the most anticipated device of 2014, and thanks to a leaked specification sheet, we can now see what Samsung's new flagship device will have under the hood.
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 4 will be packed to the gills with the latest in mobile technology. The Galaxy Note 4's model number will be N910, and as with previous versions of the device, it will be available globally, including the five (T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular) big U.S carriers. The North American model of the Note 4 is expected to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, while the rest of the world will see the Octa-Core Samsung Exynos.
The Galaxy Note 4 is expected to have much higher resolution screen than the Note 3, and the spec sheet indicates that this will indeed be the case. The Note 4 is slated to have a QHD (2560x1440) AMOLED display, and while actual screen size is not listed, it is expected to be the same as last years Note 3 at 5.7-inches. Doubling the resolution and keeping the screen size the same as last years device means the screens ppi (pixels per inch) will be significantly higher.
The Galaxy Note 3's weakest link was its camera, and it seems as though Samsung has listened to its fans. The Note 4 will feature a 16-megapixel camera on the back of the phone, which is powered by a Sony optical sensor, and it will also feature optical image stabilization (OIS) which will help with low light photography. The front facing camera will be a 2-megapixel shooter, which will be perfect for video chat, and the occasional selfie.
The one specification not listed on the spec sheet is how much RAM the Note 4 will have. Rumors suggest that the Note 4 will be one of the first 64-bit Android devices, and as such it could carry 4GB of RAM, which will be a significant increase over last years Note 3 that used 3GB. The form factor is still up for debate as well, with Samsung stating that the Note 4 will feature an all new design and form factor that has not been seen before. The Note 4 seems to have become the device Samsung uses to try out new technology, so it will certainly be interesting to see just what Samsung does with the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to have a release date of mid September, which means it will launch around the same time as Apple's iPhone 6.
