With all the buzz around the new iPhone release in September, there are some other exciting smartphone releases coming in the same month as well. If you are not a devout iPhone follower, you may be interested in the new line of Samsung Galaxy Smartphones to debut in September alongside the iPhone 6 (particularly the all new Galaxy Note 4). Here is an exciting look at what the new Note will have to offer:
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to come with a 5.7in AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution (1440 x 2560). It will also sport either a retina scanner or a fingerprint scanner built in. The screen (and casing) is rumored to come with a waterproof/dust-proof design.
Testing the market this September with the Galaxy Alpha and the all new Note 4, Samsung will harness the metal frame design, possibly stepping on the toes of iPhone and stealing some of their market. Samsung wants to see if customers will go for a higher priced, quality metal phone with a Samsung name and an Android OS. It will also feature the S Pen that is expected to recognize handwriting and personal gestures. It is rumored that there will be two models of the Note; the first will sport the new 805 Snapdragon quad-core processor and the other will have the Exynos 5433 octa-core processor (two of the fastest on the market). The OS will most likely be Android 4.4.3 KitKat or possibly even a brand new OS (code name Lollipop).
The Note will most likely come with 3 different storage capacities; 16GB, 32GB and 64GB with an almost definite slot for SD card expandable memory (up to 128GB). There will also be a whopping 4GB of ram crammed inside.
The new addition to the Note family will carry a couple of handy features debuting this September; namely the Ultraviolet Sensor and the Ultrasonic cover. The UV scanner, as part of the S Health system, will warn users if they are getting too much sun. Through a series of UV index levels, the sensor will tell you if you are at risk for damaging skin, aging prematurely and getting skin cancer. The Ultrasonic cover, on the other hand, will be targeted toward vision impairments. It is rumored that it will be able to assist visually handicapped people by detecting nearby objects and reporting back to the user audibly. The back facing camera is rumored to be a 16 MP(3456 x 4608 pixels) with included optical image stabilization, autofocus, dual-LED flash. The front facing camera will be a 2MP 1080p with 30FPS. The video capabilities will be 2160p@30fps, 1080p@60fps with optical stabilization.
Many of these specs are informed guesses and leaks from Samsung and other qualified sources. Although Samsung has not fully disclosed the specs and information on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, there is sure to be a pleased audience come the September release. You can always count on Samsung to up the game and provide a quality handset just in time for the new iPhone release.
