Samsung Galaxy Note 4 details leak: here's hoping...

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 details leak: here's hoping...We still know relatively little about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 considering it's just three weeks away from launch, but if an early retail listing is to be believed, it's gonna be one serious piece of kit.

Indonesian site Eraphone tells us the Galaxy Note 4 will come with a 5.7in Quad HD screen, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 805 processor and a whopping 4GB of RAM. Excited? You should be.

We don't know where Eraphone is getting its info from – and why nobody else has it – but we'll play along for now in the hope the listed specs are indeed legit.

At 5.7in across that Quad HD Super AMOLED display doesn't quite match the 5.5in LG G3 for pixel density, but there's not much in it, and besides – the rest of the headline specs are clearly superior.

The Snapdragon 805 processor is what we're likely to see in the UK, though other markets will seemingly be looking at an octa-core Exynos 5433 clocked at 1.3GHz.

Where the Galaxy Note 4 really stands apart is its expected use of DDR4 RAM, and 4GB of it, something none of the current best-of-breed smartphones offer.

The listing says there'll be a choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB storage, and in all cases there's a microSD card slot for adding even more.

We're told to expect a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation, and while the front-facer's specs aren't mentioned, the Galaxy Note 3's 5MP selfie cam suggests something similar from its successor.

The only key bit of info missing in terms of the spec sheet is battery capacity, and given the rest of the components, hopefully there's plenty of juice on board to keep it ticking over.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4's price is listed as the equivalent of £487, which is obviously just the converted figure from Indonesian rupiah so shouldn't be taken as an exact figure for the UK, but does signify that the Galaxy Note 4 is going to come with a price tag to match its premium spec.

So we've had some pics, and now some specs. Just a pity the Galaxy Note 4 itself is only arriving on 3 September.

Spec wise it will be a beast of a phone, it will be a shame if they have not changed the design at all, was hearing about how they will wrap the screen around the sides etc but most recent pics (if they are to believed) in last couple weeks show the the phone same as previous models, same as galaxy range.
