The Galaxy Note 3 may only be around six months old, but rumours are already gathering about its replacement, which may be called the Galaxy Note 4. A report from a Chinese source has revealed a few possible specifications, and they’re very interesting.
Apparently, the screen could have a 1440p resolution, which makes it 2560×1440 pixels. We’ve seen phones with this impressive resolution announced already – the Oppo Find 7 and the Vivo XPlay 3S – but they’ve yet to go on sale. There were also rumours the Galaxy S5 would have a 1440p screen, but instead Samsung stayed with 1080p for its flagship phone.
The report continues with the news Samsung may introduce two models, one with an Exynos processor, and the other with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. The 801 is also used in the Galaxy S5, but we also wonder whether the Snapdragon 805 will be ready for sale by the time the Note 4 is announced.
It’s also speculated the Note 4 will have a 20 megapixel camera, but not the same heart rate sensor seen on the Galaxy S5. The design may bring the S5′s perforated rear panel to the Note 4, but it’s not clear if the fake stitching and leather look from the Note 3 will remain.
Traditionally, the Note 4 has been Samsung’s flagship product announced during the IFA show in late September, early October. The source questions whether this will be the same this year, due to the Galaxy S5′s early launch.
Take all the above as pure speculation at the moment, given the amount of time before we’re officially introduced to the Note 4.
