The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet was recently spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark database. Thanks to an image of the test conducted on the device we were able to learn quite a bit about its specs. While most of these coincide with what was previously rumored, it’s good to see some confirmation coming from a generally reliable source. Now, one of the most interesting aspects about the Note series has always been the display, which is rather large for a smartphone but not quite as big as to consider them tablets, hence the term “phablet”. The Galaxy Note 3 grew a bit compared to its predecessor, but it seems that this year Samsung decided to stop adding inches to the screen so the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to also sport a 5.7-inch panel, just like the Note 3.
However, they did make a considerable improvement in terms of resolution as revealed by AnTuTu, and we should be looking at a glorious 1440 x 2560 QHD display. This translates to a pixel density of over 500, which is certainly impressive. In regards to its processor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is said to come in two variants, one packing an Exynos 5433 octa-core while the other will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805. The benchmark data bases only confirms the first model, but it’s a safe bet that the other one will be released as well. Another interesting reveal made by AnTuTu is the fact that the phablet will come equipped with a 15.8MP rear-facing camera. Previous rumors only suggested a 13MP shooter, but we’re definitely glad that Samsung decided to go with more megapixels.
We should also see something along the lines of 3 GB of RAM, 3.68MP secondary camera and 16GB of internal storage memory, although some sources claim 32GB. I think it’s safe to assume that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will have both options, and probably even a 64GB option, just like the Note 3. Additionally, the device will most likely include a microSD card slot and rumor has it that it will be able to support up to 128 GB of additional storage memory. Finally, AnTuTu tells us that the phablet will run Android 4.4.4 straight out of the box, which is great to hear because many of Samsung’s devices have lagged behind when it comes to updates. Glad this isn’t the case here as well.
As for an announcement date, the company will officially unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on September 3rd at an event scheduled to take place simultaneously in Berlin, Beijing, and New York.
