Samsung Galaxy Note 4 details: not a niche, pre-event

Today we’re having a peek at everything we know - or think we know - about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The device hasn’t been revealed in full by Samsung yet, but barring an actual press release with the name in bold, they’ve essentially given us enough basic information to figure out the rest ourselves. Here’s the Galaxy Note 4 as well as we can figure before September 3rd.

That date - September 3rd - will be the day we see the device up close and personal in Berlin. Samsung is holding several events that day, and we’ll be bringing you hands-on action from Deutschland.

Until then, here’s what we’ve heard so far. First we’ll have a peek at the Galaxy Note 4. Remember that this is all based on rumors and leaks that we’ve discussed in our Samsung tag portal over the past few weeks - up to this week and the most recent leaks.

Galaxy Note 4
Display: 5.7-inch AMOLED with 2K (2560 × 1440 pixels) resolution
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 / Samsung Exynos 5433
RAM: 3GB
Back Camera: 16MP 1080p/4K video, OIS
Front Camera: 3.68MP 1080p video
Internal Storage: 32GB, 64GB, microSD for 128GB expansion
Also: Heart rate monitor, UV sensor, finger print sensor, dust/water resistance

Samsung has released every Galaxy Note to date with more than one processor - inside the USA it’ll have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, while outside of the states you’ll see Exynos. This compares to last year’s Galaxy Note which reads out as follows:

Galaxy Note 3
Display: 5.7-inch AMOLED with 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 / Samsung Exynos 5420
Back Camera: 13MP 1080p/4K video, OIS
Front Camera: 2MP 1080p video
Internal Storage: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, microSD for 128GB expansion

In a Nutshell

The new Galaxy Note 4 will be essentially the same size as the Galaxy Note 3, but it’ll be better in several key places. The display will be sharper, the processor will be more powerful and better at conserving energy, and the S Pen will be more advanced.

We’ll go ahead and expect the cameras to work exactly the same as the Galaxy S5, as well. This is par for the course for each of the three preceding Galaxy Note releases.

Let us know what you think! And be sure to join us here on SlashGear the entire day on the 3rd of September, 2014 - we’ll be bringing you ALL the details you could ever desire!
