The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2014, but so far solid information about the phone has been hard to come by, however a post made by AnTuTu on June 21 seemingly confirms the specifications of the new phablet from Samsung.
Two versions of the Galaxy Note 4 have been tested on the popular Android benchmarking application AnTuTu, and the results have been posted for everyone to see. AnTuTu is a application that is designed to let users see how powerful their device really is, and it also lists all of the internal components of the device. Samsung will be releasing a Note 4 powered by their own Exynos SoC (System on a chip), and a Qualcomm Snapdragon version too.
The two model numbers listed on AnTuTu are the SM-N910C and SMN910S, the former is powered by the Exynos chip, and the later will be powered by the new Snapdragon 805 processor which has been clocked at 2.5GHz. The Exynos version of the device will arrive with a next generation ARM Cortex A53 processor, and it will be paired with ARM's state of the art Mali-T760 graphics processor, while the Snapdragon version will be the first phone to use the new Adreno 420 graphics chip.
One of the big rumors about the Note 4 seems to have been confirmed as well. The Note 4 will feature a stunning 5.5-inch QHD display, which will output a resolution of 2560x1440. AnTuTu also confirms that the Galaxy Note 4 will be packing 3GB of RAM, and will come with 32GB of storage space as standard, much like its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 3.
Photography fans will also be pleased to hear that the Galaxy Note 4 will come a much better camera than the Note 3. The 13-megapixel shooter on the Note 3 was really the phablets weakest link, but the Note 4 will feature a 16-megapixel rear facing camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), and a upgraded 3.6-megapixel front facing camera, which will be perfect for selfie lovers.
Surprisingly the flagship Galaxy Note 4 will only ship with Android KitKat 4.4.3, but of course all of these specifications could quite easily change between now, and the expected release in September. Thanks to AnTuTu we now have a better idea of what to expect from Samsung's next big flagship device. One thing for sure is that September will be a month to remember in the smartphone world, as Samsung's Note 4 will release around the same time as Apple's new iPhone 6.
