A new report coming out of the Korean media suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will go into production very soon with a launch expected to commence in September as originally planned. The decision to start production early could have been triggered by the sort of demand QHD smartphones are expected to see. With LG leading the race now with the G3, Samsung will hope to leverage some of the demand in time for September.
Rumors have suggested that the QHD display used on the Galaxy Note 4 will be the same size as the Galaxy Note 3, so as to avoid making the device any larger. Over the last couple of years we’ve seen the Galaxy Note series increase in size with each iteration by 0.2 inches, so it’s quite a big decision from the company to put an end to that tradition.
The phablet is expected to feature a 5.7 inch QHD display accompanied by a powerful Snapdragon 805 chipset, a 16-megapixel camera and some new S-Pen tricks that we haven’t seen or heard of so far. Expect the phablet to be running Android 4.4 when it breaks cover unless Google launches something newer by then.
