Galaxy Note 4 Leaked with Higher Resolution, but Smaller, Screen

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Back Bottom 2

Earlier this month, the first Galaxy Note 4 rumours started to appear. Now, just a few weeks later, another almost complete spec list has shown up online. It comes from an anonymous source quoted in a Chinese publication, and the big news concerns the screen.

The Galaxy Note 3 has a massive 5.7-inch display, up from the 5.5-inch screen on the Note 2. If this new rumour is correct, Samsung may revert back to the 5.5-inch setup seen on the Note 2, indicating it may consider the Note 3 a little too big. It’s also suggested the company may split the difference and go for a 5.6-inch screen too.

Repeating what we’ve heard before, the rumour states the screen will have a massive 2560×1440 pixel resolution, also known as 1440p, beating the 1080p screens found on the Note 3 and the Galaxy S5. Samsung may also be one of the first to use Qualcomm’s forthcoming Snapdragon 805 processors, running at 2.5GHz, and backed up by 3GB of RAM.

The report concludes with news the Note 4 should have a 16 megapixel rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera, and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage space. The microSD card slot may be able to take cards up to 128GB on size.¬†Although it’s not mentioned, we’d expect Samsung to include the S Pen stylus as usual, and feature Android 4.4 or higher as the operating system.

In the past, Samsung has announced a new Note smartphone in September, during the IFA tech trade show, so we’ve still got some time to go before these latest rumours can be verified.
