The latest rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the latest iteration to the popular Galaxy Note 3, suggest that the device could have specs to rival the upcoming iPhone 6.
The device is expected to be unveiled at the IFA trade show in Berlin next month, and thanks to some new leaks, we have a better idea of what to expect from the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4, according to the leaks, will likely include a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. The rear camera will be 16 megapixels and will have optical image stabilization, and the device will have 4GB of RAM.
Consumers will also have the choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of RAM. Buyers will also be able to add a microSD card of up to 128GB. Other details about the device include that it will ship with Android 4.4.3 KitKat, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
These leaks come from a retailer in Indonesia called Erafone, who published a product page dedicated to the Galaxy Note 4, after which it was removed.
"Samsung is committed to relentless innovation and new products are always in development," said a company spokesperson who declined to comment on the Galaxy Note 4.
The specifications outlined on the Indonesian website may actually just be one set of specifications, with Samsung expected to unveil a number of different versions of the device rather than just one. Some rumors suggest that up to three versions could be announced.
One of the versions is expected to include a curved display rather than a flat one. This display is expected to curve around the edges of the device, allowing for increased functionality on the edges. Furthermore, the design of the device should somewhat incorporate aspects of the metal design found on the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, which was unveiled earlier this week.
One of the versions will also likely have a more traditional flat display, which will also cost less. Different processors will likely appear in different versions of the device too, with one version including a Snapdragon 805, as mentioned above, and another version including one of Samsung's own Exynos processors.
If the specifications that were leaked turn out to be true, then the Galaxy Note 4 certainly will turn heads, and will rival the specs of the iPhone 6, which is also set to be announced in early September.
With the multitude of Note 4 rumors circulating, it will be a relief when the device is finally announced in a few short weeks.
