Check out a heavily disguised Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on video
It now has become a tradition for the Samsung Galaxy Note launch to wrap up the year for high-end Samsung handsets, offering the latest, most advanced new features available. This year should be no different, although the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be taking on some tougher competition with the Apple iPhone 6 expected to flaunt a larger 4.7 inch screen. We also could see the long rumored 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet, which would be tougher competition than normal for the Galaxy Note 4 and its expected 5.7 inch display. On the other hand, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution and a whopping 515ppi pixel density, the screen on Sammy's phablet should be a joy to behold.

Samsung will unwrap the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 during its UNPACKED event on September 3rd at IFA 2014 in Berlin. What is allegedly a 15 second video of the Galaxy Note 4 in action, has been posted, and we have embedded the clip below, for your perusal. Unfortunately, the device has been disguised through the use of a "dummy box" which allows us to see the screen, but not the design of the phone.

Yes, you should take this video with a grain of salt as the disguise has prevented us from getting a good look at the phone. But September 3rd will be here before you know it. Besides, we're open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week just in case a last second leak is found.



Thanks for the tip!

I mean by October the flagship devices would be out and the comparison and head to head videos will help me decide what to by for Christmas

I'm an apple guy but I totally agree about waiting to compare which flagship I want by October. If the note 4 matches all the hype I would definitely be willing to make the switch

I think that most apple users will make the switch when they find a phone that is unlike any other...........and the Note series is that kind of phone

And then you'll have to wait till spring for newer phones.

Not really. If all you want is a phablet then October is the time to get one, no more waiting.

Exactly. Bought a GS5 to replace my Note 2, returned it after a week for a Note 3. It was just too small.
I know many like the smaller size, but I just can't do it any more.

Had the Note 3, sold it for a Z2 but I'm definitely going back to the Note series once this baby is out.

Why does it look like Lumia 1520? :\

9. Azonx8472 (Posts: 11; Member since: 13 Apr 2013)


Because its in a case to protect it.

10. ManusImperceptus (Posts: 634; Member since: 10 Jun 2014)


But the 1520 is a slim and elegant unibody, so a case would make it look even less like one... :-)

23. ph00ny (Posts: 606; Member since: 26 May 2011)


Oh Please,

I daily use 1520 and Note3 and i still prefer the Note3 over 1520 by a huge margin. Slim and elegant? I give you heavy and cumbersome.

"heavy and cumbersome"

That would be the Android OS you're talking about...? :-D

The only one who can give us a real leak is Eveleaks! Why retire dude? Come back! I don't give a crap about Moto X+1 byt everyone does about Note 4. Too bad he's not here
He could have given a good leak compared to those "leaked" images that had no consistency among themselves.

I know it's in a case but still, bezels look bigger than on the note 3.

13. The-Sailor-Man (banned) (Posts: 1095; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)


How could you know how big the bezels are, when in a case?

posted on 28 Aug 2014, 15:30 2

16. tango_charlie (Posts: 91; Member since: 16 Nov 2011)


Because those bezels are clearly visible. Go Fullscreen, choose 1080p and turn the backlight up to the maximum brightness.

14. bugsbunny00 (Posts: 1239; Member since: 07 Jun 2013)


and the G3 top bezels looks better than this, and side bezel thick too even when box is covering it still can see a little thickness.

15. Zapp_B (Posts: 15; Member since: 02 Jun 2014)


Exactly. And the position of the home button is strange, it's closer to the display than to the bottom bezel. It is visible right at the beginning of the video

I currently use a opo but will be watching this note 4 to possibly purchase. I hope it has sharp edges and small bezel.

NOTE 4 IS AWESOME!! I don't think the increase in screen size for the iPhone 6 will pose a 'tougher' competition for the Note 4 though.

posted on 28 Aug 2014, 19:19

35. AstronautJones (Posts: 272; Member since: 01 Aug 2012)


I think the rumored 5.5 inch iPhone will eat away some.
I am still going for the Note 4, but I am interested to see a large iPhone (not 4.7")

Who cares if it does? I am still going with the Note 4.

Why do they keep poking the screen like the device isn't working?

What's the part of the screen they keep tapping at? I thought it was going to unlock an Easter egg or something.

As usual, the excessive and incorrect use of commas by Alan F. Doesn't PA have any qualified writers and editors?
