Yet more images of the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have been leaked ahead of the handset’s official unveiling next week. Despite its funky disguise, we get a feel for its size — plus confirmation of its model number and launch software.
As expected, the Galaxy Note 4 will have Android 4.4.4 KitKat — Google’s latest Android release — pre-installed when it goes on sale. It will be coupled with a new TouchWiz user interface that is expected to offer improved S Pen functionality and other new features.
Those S Pen improvements are thought to be one of the Note 4’s biggest selling points, and it’s what the South Korean company has teased most in its numerous Note 4 teaser videos over the past couple of weeks. They may not be the most exciting thing on its spec sheet, however.
We’re also expecting a much-improved metal form factor — much like the Galaxy Alpha’s — which was first pictured out in the wild earlier this month. We don’t get to see that in the latest images, however, because this handset is disguised in a rather unflattering security case that’s designed to keep its design a secret until its unveiling.
What we can see, thanks to the screenshot below, is that this particular device has the “SM-N910T” model number. It will be one of a number of different Note 4 variants, each of which will have different processors and chips to suit different markets around the world.
The U.S. model, for instance, will likely have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and LTE connectivity, while certain parts of Europe and other countries where LTE is still nonexistent will get a model with Samsung’s own Exynos processor instead.
Other specifications are expected to include a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a fingerprint scanner. Given that the display size remains the same as the Note 3’s, you can expect the new device to be around the same size all over.
Samsung will make the Galaxy Note 4 official at an Unpacked event in Berlin on September 3. Keep an eye on TechnoBuffalo to get the news as it breaks — plus hands-on coverage with our first impressions.
