The post Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to come a bit earlier than expected? appeared first on AndroidGuys.
Twenty-two model numbers for Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy Note 3 have leaked thanks to @evleaks, showing where it will be available worldwide.
From the leaked model numbers, we can see that there will be 16 and 32 GB models and both black and white, as well as that it will be available on numerous carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon in the U.S. While it seems it will be available around the globe, some other carriers we can pick out from the list are DoCoMo and KDI.
Previous leaks about the Note 4 have suggest that there will be one model (SM-N910S) that is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor while the other (SM-910C) figures to pack a 64-bit Exynos chipset. Some other rumored specs include 3GB RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and front-facing 3.6-megapixel shooter. Powered by Android 4.4.3 (for now), the display should also be 5.7-inches and offer 1440×2560 resolution.
There’s been talk that the device will make a debut at the annual IFA trade show in Germany that starts Sept. 5.

It’s no surprise that Samsung would make a new Galaxy Note smartphone given the series’ very healthy sales, but just how is the company going to improve on the design of the Note 3? By giving it a quad HD screen, apparently. The company has posted a web profile for an unannounced SM-N910A (the Note 3 for AT&T is the SM-N900A) that includes a 2,560 x 1,440 display, hinting that the future Galaxy Note will pack visuals roughly as sharp as LG’s G3. It also backs what we’ve heard about Oculus VR getting greater-than-1080p OLED screens from the Korean tech firm. There aren’t any other big clues in the profile, but they come on the heels of import data that suggests the next Note will maintain the same 5.7-inch screen size as its predecessor — Samsung may be resisting the urge to produce a truly gigantic phone like the G Pro 2 or Lumia 1520.
As for what’s behind that new panel? That’s tougher to prove. SamMobile claims that the new Note will be powered by a speedier Snapdragon 805 or Exynos 5433 processor (depending on the market) and ship with a newly stabilized 16-megapixel camera. Those make sense when Galaxy Notes are historically more powerful than the Galaxy S models they follow, but nothing’s set in concrete — we wouldn’t rule out a surprise or two. If the profile is accurate, though, fans of Samsung’s larger handsets have at least a visual upgrade to look forward to this year.
We’ve heard recently that Samsung wants to go in a new direction with their next Galaxy Note device. Whether it ends up being mind-blowingly innovative remains to be seen, however we’re definitely expecting to know sometime at the end of this year. Sure enough, an insider with knowledge of Samsung’s plans has let slip that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date is going to be on September 3rd, right in the ballpark of when we were expecting it.
This announcement would come right before IFA 2014 in Berlin, and sounds a lot more like Samsung’s announcements of old; just before large mobile conventions and extremely flashy, quite unlike the comparatively sterile affair that was the Galaxy S5‘s announcement. The insider says that invites for the Samsung Unpacked event to announce the new phablet device would start going out in August.
We’re expecting some exciting things from the Note 4 especially after Samsung has claimed to be looking at a new “form-factor” for the device, and so far the device is rumoured to have a 5.7-inch Quad HD display. Are you excited to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 this year? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
After the relatively pedestrian reception of the Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung has said that it is looking for a way to refocus its efforts in the premium smartphone market, starting with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that is expected to be released later this year. While Samsung has said they are considering a new form factor for the Note 4, it doesn’t look like they are going to stray too far size-wise from yesteryear’s 5.7-inch Note 3. In fact, according to a tip handed to GSM Arena, it looks like the Note 4, which carries the model number N910, will have a 5.7-inch Quad HD display.
This may be a relief for some expectant Note 4 owners who may have been scared the next generation Galaxy Note to balloon beyond the 6-inch threshold, however it looks like Samsung thinks the Note has found its niche at 5.7-inches. The Quad HD screen is by no means a surprise, and actually makes a lot of sense for a phablet with the extra screen real-estate, making for 515 ppi clarity, by no means a small amount. It’s probably notable to see that the Galaxy S5 Prime also features in this list, implying that it’s still on its way.
What do you think about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 potentially staying at the same screen size as last year? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Time for some Android news quick status. the @googlenexus Twitter account leaked out an interesting screenshot, that many are speculating to be the new Android dialer. Galaxy Note 4 might finally see that YOUM display, and Motorola might have a more budget friendly phone. Nothing wrong with that at all.
Last week, we heard from Yoon Han-kil, Samsung’s Senior Vice President of Product Strategy, that Samsung would be looking to give the next Galaxy Note device a “new form factor”. The device, which would most likely be called the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, plans to breath new life into the Galaxy Note line of devices in an attempt to recapitalize on the market that the phablet devices helped create. According to ZDNet in Korea, this revitalization may include a Samsung design patent that we saw late last year.
The patent in question is one named “Youm” and features a wraparound screen that does away with the conventional side bezels. What this allows is the extra screen space, which is tilted away from the main screen, to be used for addition user inputs including lock/unlock gestures or quick menu options. It’s a concept that Samsung has shown off prototypes for before, but has been suspiciously quiet about since then. While it’s definitely a tantalizing idea to consider that this design could feature on the Note 4, there’s no real concrete evidence to say that Samsung will utilize Youm.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be a “new form factor”, Samsung searching again for the next big Thing
The Samsung Galaxy Note line of so-called ‘phablet‘ devices has been its own bag of surprises over the last few years; while many were sceptical that the original Galaxy Note would even sell, let alone be iterated upon, we are already onto the 3rd generation of the giant-screened smartphones and the future still looks bright for this sector of the market. The allure of the Galaxy Note family has faded, however, as most other major manufacturers have launched their own phablet device in the hopes of capturing their own part of the market. Naturally then, Samsung is looking for a new way to make their next phablet, expected to be named the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, appear even more attractive to consumers.
In an interview with Reuters, Yoon Han-kil, Samsung’s Senior Vice President of Product Strategy briefly illuminated Samsung’s ambitions for the next Galaxy Note device. As expected, Yoon confirmed that the next Note could be expected to launch in the second half of 2014, but also mentioned that the device would be in a “new form factor”, adding that “Our ultimate goal is to make products that consumers really aspire to have. This is how we are trying to find a breakthrough in the stagnant premium market.” What exactly was meant by ‘new form factor’ is unknown, but this is definitely exciting news for fans of phablets as it means Samsung is really looking at putting their stamp on the market they helped to create.
What do you think about Yoon’s comments? Do you think the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can be the game-changer that Samsung wants it to be, and what do you think it needs to do this? Let us know what your opinion is in the comments below.
