There is no doubt that the Korean phone maker will introduce a Galaxy Note 3 successor, but this is the first time we hear a Samsung representative talking about it. According to Samsung CEO JK Shin, the Galaxy Note 4 release date has been set for “this fall.”
Talking to Korean media, the Samsung exec has denied the existence of the “premium Galaxy S5” everyone is talking about lately, adding that the Galaxy Note 4 release date will be in the fall, which isn’t surprising at all, given that the last three Galaxy Note phablets were all released in September.
With Samsung Galaxy S5’s release placed closer to the launch of the iPhone 5S, Samsung aims to steal more potential iPhone 5S customers, then do the same with the iPhone 6 and Galaxy Note 4 launch.
Even though it’s a bit earlier to talk Galaxy Note 4 specifications, we can speculate that it would come with a display slightly bigger than its predecessor’s (5.9 inches instead of 5.7 inches), at least 3 GB of RAM, quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor (which is Qualcomm’s most powerful CPU, set to debut in the second half of the year), and most likely the same 16 MP primary camera of the Galaxy S5). We might even get to see it sporting a metal body. Since most reports show that the LG G3 will arrive with a QHD screen, we’ll most likely see Samsung trying to match it and install a QHD AMOLED display on the Note 4.

Even though Shin dismissed the rumors about a “premium Galaxy S5,” it doesn’t necessarily mean that the company won’t launch a metallic Galaxy handset. It’s been rumored for a while that Samsung is planning a smartphone with metal construction that will hit the market as Galaxy F, which might actually be Galaxy S5 Prime everybody is talking about.
