The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is widely expected to launch at Berlin’s IFA 2014 in September, the original Note having launched there in 2011, followed by the Note 2 in 2012 and the Note 3 in 2013.
With the recent Samsung Galaxy S5 weighing in at 5.1in 1080p and the rumoured Galaxy F supposedly rocking 5.2in QHD, it wasn’t entirely clear how the Galaxy Note 4’s display would fit into the picture, but it’s now looking very much like 5.7in QHD. Nice.
We’re tying a couple of stories together here, the first being that Samsung itself has indirectly confirmed a phone with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, by way of this user agent profile on samsungmobile.com.
The model number of the presumed Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is listed as SM-N910A, which isn’t too far off the SM-N900 - or “Samsung Galaxy Note 3” as you and I know it.
Meanwhile, Zauba, which records goods coming into India, lists the SM-N910A arriving in Delhi from South Korea (“FOR TESTING & EVALUATION & NOT FOR RETAIL SALE”), with a 5.7in display.
So there you have it; tying the two stories together, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will have a 5.7in QHD display, which is the same size as the Galaxy Note 3, but with many, many more pixels.
The other day we were told to brace for two Samsung Galaxy Note 4 models, specifically a plain old flat thing, and a curved variant for “niche markets”.
Other rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3GB of RAM.
IFA 2014 gets underway in early September.
