After the Samsung Galaxy S5 was officially unveiled the tech publications turned their attention towards the Galaxy S5 Prime and the Galaxy Note 4. Now we have exclusive details about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date.
The same insider that exclusively told us last year that the Galaxy Note 3 launch was September 4th revealed for us that Samsung has scheduled the Galaxy Note 4 release date for September 3rd. He also said that the South Korea-based phone maker will send out the invitations to the Unpacked event sometime mid-August.
In fact it’s not surprising at all to hear that the Note 4 will be released in September. Samsung has always used the Galaxy Note phablets as instruments meant to steal some of the potential iPhone buyers. The Galaxy Note smartphones were strategically released in September because that’s when Apple debuts its iOS-powered smartphones. With the iPhone 6 expected to see the light of day late August or early September, the Galaxy Note 4 should be released in the same time frame.
Hardware-wise the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to pack 3 GB of RAM, quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, and the same 16 MP ISOCELL sensor from the Galaxy S5 upgraded with Optical Image Stabilization.
There were some rumors saying that the Galaxy Note 4 will have a Youm-like screen bent around the edges of the device, but you shouldn’t hold your breath on that. A recent report said that new device will come with a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution and 515 ppi pixel density. While we agree on the resolution of the screen, we believe that the Note 4 would rather sport a 5.9-inch display, because Samsung made a habit out of increasing Galaxy Note’s screen 0.2 inches per year.
Because the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor expect these two features to be available for the Note 4, along with an improved S Pen stylus.
Unless Google decides to introduce a new Android version before the release of the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung’s next-gen high-end phablet will run Android 4.4 KitKat out of box, customized with Sammy’s proprietary TouchWiz skin.
