Rumor Roundup: Galaxy Note 4


It’s a good week to be a fan of Samsung phablet Galaxy Note series. While we haven’t heard much about the upcoming Galaxy Note 4, this week we got a couple of new rumors that give us an idea of what to expect from the display as well as what lies under the hood.

We’ll start with the freshest news first, and that comes out of Korea as a new report has Samsung dropping two versions of the Galaxy Note 4. This isn’t unusual to hear considering how many variants we’re seeing these days, but the interesting part of this rumor is that one device is said to have a curved AMOLED display while the other will have a regular AMOLED display. The device is said to be shown off at IFA 2014 in Berlin this September.

Rumor number two came earlier in the week and it slaps a QHD (2K if you prefer) display onto the Galaxy Note 4. You’re also looking at one of the fast new Exynos chip or Snapdragon depending on your region, and 3GB of RAM is a pretty safe bet as well. The rumor also mentions a UV sensor as well as a 16MP/2MP camera combo.

While these are just rumors, they line up with things we heard earlier in the year and frankly it’s what a lot of customers will expect. All the major flagships essentially have the same display/processor combo aside from the G3’s 2K display, and the only real differences the top devices this year are screen size, software and special features like the Duo-Camera or Water-resistance. All those are nice to have, but none of it is very exciting is it?

Unless Samsung releases the Galaxy F aka S5 Prime, the Note 4 will more than likely be their last chance to catch consumers attention before the new iPhone rolls out this fall, so they better do it right. A curved QHD display and speedier chip would definitely get people’s attention.

These rumors are just the tip of the iceberg for the Note 4, stay tuned and we’ll keep you in the loop as more come to light.
