Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to enter mass production next month, commercial release ‘immediately after IFA’
The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is making the news again, with the latest report now claiming it's ready to enter mass production next month.
With the new Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone now official and already on sale, the rumor mill is shifting its focus to the fourth-generation flagship phablet from the company - the Galaxy Note 4.
We've already seen plenty of reports that revealed the Note 4's purported specs, as well as some intriguing concepts designs trying to anticipate what the next-gen phablet may look like, and now we have more information regarding the device's expected launch.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is widely expected to make its official debut in September, at the IFA 2014 trade show, and a new report out of Korea (via GforGames) now reveals that the device is ready to enter mass production as soon as next month. This would allow for an unveiling in September and a commercial debut the same month.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to step into QHD territory, boasting a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The device is also expected to come in two variants, depending on market: one with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and the other with an octa-core Samsung Exynos 5433 chipset.
Other rumored specs include at least 3GB of RAM, if not 4GB, 32GB of internal storage capacity, and a microSD card slot for additional memory of up to 128GB. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is also rumored to sport a 16-megapixel camera just like the Galaxy S5, but boast an upgraded 3.7-megapixel front shooter. The next-generation Galaxy Note phablet could also be water- and dust-resistant like the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The latest report also claims that Samsung will have a very busy month in August in order to make the Galaxy Note 4 commercially available "immediately after IFA."
While none of the aforementioned specs are official just yet, the Galaxy Note 4 is nonetheless expected to be a real powerhouse. The current Galaxy Note 3 flagship phablet already boasts high-end specs and features, and its successor should bring notable improvements on all fronts.
It's all in the rumor state for now, however, so take everything with a grain of salt until official confirmation. We'll keep you up to date as soon as we learn more, so stay tuned.
