While it won’t be terribly long before Samsung lets us in on their little Samsung Galaxy Note 4 secret, we’re eager to find out what’s in store for their second half flagship ahead of its September 3rd revelation. One reputable Indonesian retailer — Erafone — may have jumped the gun a bit and posted all the juicy details before Samsung could even get a chance to get the teasers rolling.
According to them, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be boasting the following list of specs once it finally emerges from the shadows:
2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 or octa-core Exynos with four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores (depending on model and region, we imagine)
5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 display
4GB of RAm
16/32/64GB of internal storage w/ microSD up to 128GB
16 megapixel camera with 4K video recording, optical image stabilization and dual-LED flash
microUSB 3.0 with MHL 2.0 video out
Dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.0
Android 4.4.3 KitKat
Unfortunately the listing doesn’t go into massive detail about any extra bells and whistles or software features, but it’s nice to get a good idea of the framework of this device before Samsung’s ready to let it be known for themselves. Speaking of framework, an earlier leak gave us a potential first look at the device itself.
It appears to be using a bit of metal in its chassis, though there’s a strong possibility that the device we saw is an early prototype and there’s a chance it may look different. Funny, that, as it technically wouldn’t be the first device in Samsung’s new metal-filled design strategy for their Galaxy lineup — the Samsung Galaxy Alphasnuck in for that honor just yesterday.
There’s always a chance these specs could be false, of course, but it’s not out of the ordinary for a retailer to have such early access to device information (considering they have to prepare to sell it to us, and all). Still, approach this with a grain of salt until we can get Samsung to fork over the details themselves. Let us know how you feel about these specs — a worthy upgrade over the Note 3 or is Samsung’s magic beginning to wear out?
