The latest and greatest device just isn’t good enough anymore. We have to speculate and wonder what the “next big thing” will be and have. It is almost becoming a game. To see what might be true and what might be false. Who ever gets the most correct answers wins. The current supreme ruler in the Android realm is Samsung. Over the years we have watched Samsung release questionable devices prior to the Samsung Galaxy S line that really launched their success with the OS. Since then we have watched Samsung grow their Android portfolio with various tablets and phones with the most commonly known being the Galaxy S line and the Note Line. However, over the years we have also watched a division between devices overseas and here in the states. I am not talking about random variants of a device, but the varying chipsets that were used. For instance, the Galaxy SIII, while a bit older now, had a Exynos overseas with 1GB of RAM and the one in the US offered a Qualcomm processor and 2GB of RAM. The complication was due to the LTE technology we use here in the states, and other parts of the world, that the Exynos processor just didn’t play nicely with.
The Galaxy Note 3 was primarily a Qualcomm based device with limited markets having the Exynos edition. The latest line of rumors around the unannounced Galaxy Note 4 that we all know will be coming eventually is that Samsung will be bringing the Eynos chipset back a little stronger this time than they did with the Note 3. Samsung is said to be bringing the Exynos 5433 to the European models. It is also supposedly carrying the Intel-Powered Cat. 6 LTE (XMM7260) chipset.
Don’t let any of this news get you all wound up in the states though as they are also saying the Note 4 outside of Europe ( U.S. Korea, China and Japan) will bring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805. Not that we mind really. The Snapdragon 805 is a fantastic processor that handles plenty.
SamMobile goes on to state that they have confirmed the Note 4 will house a 16MP OIS camera module from Sony. So that is good news to me as I personally love the image quality of the Sony camera modules. Hopefully Samsung doesn’t fubar it with crap software.
