Samsung is apparently working on it’s Note 4 which is rumored to come with a flexible display measuring anywhere between 5.7-6 inches and would be sporting a 2K resolution. We still do not have bendable glass out commercially so that is odd. The source also claims that Samsung may not carry the usual faux leather design to the Note 4 and would instead make a metallic body. Again metallic and flexible at the same time – seems odd.
The camera on the Note 4 would be bumped up with a new sensor and a 16 MP resolution with Optical Image Stabilization. Samsung may eventually bring only a handful of these features or two but still then the Note 4 would be a hot device.
The Galaxy Note 4 is going to be a benchmarking device when it launches at IFA this year, if you cannot wait to know what’s going to be there on the device – then here are some leaks courtesy of @evleaks.
The list of leaked .APKS give us a fair idea of what is going to there onboard the Note 4. “VoiceNote4t” and “SamsungMusic_20″ are pretty self explanatory themselves. What we are interested in is the “SStudio_WQHD” APK suggests that the Galaxy Note 4 will be packing a QHD display.
Samsung will continue to push it’s S Health service with a new version which is made evident with the “SHealth3_5″. There will be a suite of apps dedicated to photography as well, apps like “OutOfFocusViewer”, “PhotoStudio”, and “SmartSelfShot” are the apps that indicate this.
There is also one like the “VRSVC” APK which could very well be the app responsible to connect to Samsung’s new VR headset which is rumored to be in works. Just like the Oculus, Samsung is said to be making it’s own version which would have the technology to talk to mobile devices.
We do not have a date for the release of the Note 4 yet but it will be pretty soon and it will be this year.
A new software update is rolling out today, and it brings some welcome changes. This update is made available for Galaxy Note 3 devices in the UK. Talking about the two key features it brings, first being KNOX 2.0 that aims to provide a new layer of enterprise level protection for employees that companies can make use of. So yes hence KNOX comes in the way of root more than often so it is not desirable for tinkerers.
The second is the Samsung Download Booster that combines WiFi and 3G/4G data to get a boost in bandwidth and speed for larger files. If you are in the UK, then make sure to hit that “Software Update” option in the settings panel.
SamMobile claims that Samsung is going to divide regions and bring the Snapdragon 805 on the Galaxy Note 4 with different carriers. The international version all other regions (including Europe) will get will be based on the Exynos 5433 chipset coupled with an Intel XMM7260 Cat. 6 modem. The screen on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 would be a 5.7 incher with a QHD resolution with a PPI north of 500 and probable even go all out to bring 4GB of RAM.
Again, some of these are probably too much to even speculate.
This update adds a couple of features that Samsung bought with it’s Galaxy S5, namely the Kids Mode and Download Booster. The Android version remains 4.4.2. The Kids mode allows safe handling of your data and payments when the mode is switched on, while Download Booster is something that actually may be much useful. It allows data to be pulled from the WiFi as well LTE so as to get a better bandwidth and speed.
A certain website claims to have news from trusted sources that confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will carry a 5.7″ inch QHD resolution display(2560*1440 pixels)
The other rumored specifications of the Note 4 may include an Exynos Hexa-Core processor or a Snapdragon 801 with 4GB of RAM. A 20.1 MP ISOCELL camera with 4K recording capabilities. Memory options to even include a possible 128GB eMMC. The Note 4 would carry the Fingerprint scanner from the Galaxy S5 and would have similar IP certifications for water and dust protection.
With LTE and USB 3.0, the battery is also rumored to be somewhere around 3600-3800mAh. By the looks of these rumored specs, the Note 4 would be the beast that other phones would try to catch up with this year.
The Kitkat 4.4 update log includes performance snappiness and battery improvements. It will also bring fullscreen album art and camera shortcut on the lockscreen, transparent status bar, wireless printing capabilities among others.
Features like Samsung Knox, Samsung Wallet and the latest version of TouchWiz are all in the update package. The first country on the list is France. Incase you don’t get a notification then head over to Settings – About – Software Update.
Three-sided implicates that the display has its left and right sides bent to create additional zones where notifications from messages, email, incoming calls can appear. Reuters reports of a Samsung executive who has confirmed that Samsung is trying to make this new form factor a reality for the masses. The Note series always see the light of day months post its flagship Galaxy S series. This September, as always we shall see if the company does have a surprise for us.
Do you look forward to radical change in smartphone designs?
With MWC just around the corner , leaks are an interesting set of events that are much expected. Samsung is nailing double down on wearables and the next iteration of the Galaxy Gear watches are about to see the light of the day.
The one on the left is the more premium one as is clearly visible what is interesting is another, Galaxy Gear Neo which is featured on the right – well, that’s anyone’s guess, for now, but perhaps it’s a cheaper version of the Gear 2, with more basic specs. We’re just weeks away from Samsung’s Unpacked event that has 5 written all over it. So let’s wait and see how much of this get’s official and whatever hasn’t yet been leaked!

KitKat hasn’t been kept aloof from the Galaxy lineup of devices unlike some other flagships who are yet to receive this latest Android update. Thankfully, Samsung came out and gave a list of smartphones so that owners could avoid the frustration of knowing whether or not their device would receive this update.
Devices scheduled to receive KitKat:
- Galaxy Note 3
- Galaxy Note II
- Galaxy S4
- Galaxy S4 mini
- Galaxy S4 Active
- Galaxy S4 Zoom
- Galaxy S III
- Galaxy S III mini
- Galaxy Mega
- Galaxy Light
- Galaxy Note 8.0
- Galaxy Tab 3
- Galaxy Note 10.1
- Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition)
We really didn’t need Samsung to confirm many of these devices, as common sense made it pretty obvious that most newer products would see KitKat. Still, it never hurts to have official confirmation. When would these arrive? Don’t ask , just keep checking your settings panel for a notification.
