Every year at IFA, Samsung unveils a new variant of the Galaxy Note, which then goes on to sell millions of units in the following months. With just a little over three months left for the Galaxy Note 4, details about the phablet have started emerging on the Internet.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Specs, Apps, News & Reviews
According to a new “insider report”, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will break cover on the 3rd of September, following in the footsteps of its predecessors which have always seen a September launch.
Lee Young Hee, Executive Vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Business sat down with Bloomberg Businessweek a few days ago and spilled the beans on a few of the company’s 2014 products. Starting with the Galaxy S5, she says that it’ll be announced in either March or April. Unlike the Galaxy S4, which “consumers couldn’t really feel much difference between” it and the S3, Samsung will “go back to the basics” with the S5. She says the two key areas of focus for the S5 will be “the display and the feel of the cover.” Samsung is also “studying the possibility” of including iris scanning technology with the device, but didn’t confirm whether or not it’ll be in the device.
Samsung’s high end smartphones have used AMOLED screens since the very first Galaxy S rolled off the assembly line a little over three years ago. You’d think that the company would want to keep on using AMOLED displays as a way to differentiate their phones from the competition, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. According to the Korean publication ETNews, Samsung is thinking about going LCD for the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 because it would save them a substantial amount of money.
