Model number list for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is revealed
To that end, we have a list of model numbers for the Galaxy Note 4 and while it does not give us any detailed specs, it does show that Samsung is keeping to its playbook where somewhere it reads, “build lots of devices and sell them everywhere.”
The Note 4 will have 16GB and 32GB models, but looking at the notations for AT&T, Verizon, and presumably Sprint (SPR) and T-Mobile (TMB), it looks like the US market will only be getting a 32GB model, carrying on the arrangement with the Note 3.
One notable item on the list is SM-N910A (for AT&T), which we reported to you about a week ago. Earlier today, we shared some AnTuTu benchmark details citing model numbers SM-N910C and SM-N910S. All those model numbers are corroborated on this new list courtesy of tech-leak-artist @evleaks.
Spec-wise, nothing new accompanies this leak, but at least we know that Samsung will essentially be building 22 distinct versions of the same device. We expect to see the Galaxy Note 4 take the stage later this summer, and we expect to learn a lot more about the device over the next few months, so keep checking back.

Probably due to different market release. And probably its because its Samsung.. Samsung can do this because they can.. A Neo variant must be one of them Note 4 release.

They are same phone. Different Versions because of --
Only possible difference can be radio or any special operator software. 99% of the components and software will be same.
If you list size and colour of phone as different versions, there will be atleast 10 versions for each iphone also.

I bet you're from a 3rd world country.
Anyway, here's a cookie.

Saying the Note 4 will come with 32GB of onboard storage is like saying grass is green. It's a given.
6. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3071; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
I never found a s3 and s4 with 32gb here. Also not to mention the advertised 64gb models that never existed. -_-
I think all OEMs should ship flagships with minimum 64gb considering the new kitkat restrictions and ART would take more space for apps.
10. TheFirm (Posts: 17; Member since: 05 Jun 2014)
Why give 64gb? You think phone manufacturers don't know how much storage people actually use? You think giving away that much is a smart financial decision knowing that people probably don't even come close to filling up a 32gb, much less a 16???
11. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3071; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Haha you Sir, deserve this chinese smartphone with 512mb ROM,
OR This Nokia with non-expandable 4gb internal.
12. Diezparda (Posts: 205; Member since: 23 Oct 2013)
Mine was 32gb, my brother who is an audiophile will apreciate this. A loseless audio file usually ten times larger than mp3 files.
39. pego99 (Posts: 39; Member since: 01 Aug 2012)
Wrong my 16 is filled. 32 is importand but 64 is not.
15. PapaSmurf (Posts: 7707; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Note 3 had 32GB on board storage. I'm 100% sure the Note 4 will too. Plus Samsung disabled ART in 4.4.2 so you can scratch that off your list. If you have 32GB of apps, you need a tablet.
17. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3071; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
ART would be the default runtime in next android release.
23. Tsepz_GP (Posts: 801; Member since: 12 Apr 2012)
It's not 32GB of apps in my case, I have a ton of media, apps, documents etc... I've got a Galaxy S4 32GB plus a 32GB MicroSD, both almost full, so my next smartphone needs to have at least 32GB built in and a MicroSD slot.
I do agree, 32GB is a given in the Note 4, especially due to Note 3 being like that.
24. AstronautJones (Posts: 249; Member since: 01 Aug 2012)
Isn't that the biggest selling point of a phablet? So maybe you don't need a tablet?
It is easy to go over 16 GB in apps. Many games are around 1 GB by themselves. Don't forget touchWiz takes up a fair amount of space as well.
22. Tsepz_GP (Posts: 801; Member since: 12 Apr 2012)
I've owned both a Galaxy S3 32GB and Galaxy S4 32GB, all Exynos variants of Samsung Galaxy S come in 32GB here in South Africa, while the Qualcomm ones come in 16GB, even the Galaxy S5 Exynos is a 32GB variant here, but the Qualcomm one is the one most networks have, due to LTE, so Galaxy S5 is mostly 16GB here, part of the reason why I'm waiting for the Galaxy Note 4, I want LTE+Exynos+32GB all in one with a huge QHD display and USB3.0. :)
27. AfterShock (Posts: 2564; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
That's the LTE supplied by Intel?
Cat6 too I believe.
With that included, they're both potent versions of the Note.
32. tedkord (Posts: 4497; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
My S3 is 32gb rom. With over 80 apps installed to the internal storage using ART runtime, they take up just over 5gb including data. I have just over 20gb remaining.

If it weren't for Google (who wants your data in the cloud) and the telecoms (who want you to pay to access your data in the cloud), Android devices would come with a lot more storage.
It's absurd to think what is actually a powerful computer with 4 cores or more and 3GB of RAM comes with a tiny 16GB or 32GB drive. Especially when flash memory is so very cheap.
7. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3071; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Agreed. For that part, I never fancied downloading Full HD movies on my nexus 7.
28. AfterShock (Posts: 2564; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
I do HD versions, but then remove them after watching usually unless it's a repeat watch given movie.
29. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3071; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
Yeah I too compromise on 720p or SD quality, and transfer it to my desktop.
8. Furbal (Posts: 263; Member since: 22 Sep 2012)
Yeah the cloud is nice for some stuff, but there is a reason why many of us still want a sd card slot. Local beats cloud every time.
14. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5605; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
"...many of us still want a sd card slot."
Which is why LG included one with the G3.
I would be surprised if Sammy did not provide a SD slot for the Note 4. The only question is whether the SD slot is specced for 64 Gb or 128 Gb SD cards.
18. TheGenius (Posts: 297; Member since: 06 Mar 2014)
Who mentioned lg trollboy?
Obviously Samsung will put in a sd card slot.
They have been doing this since the beginning and your lg is copying them.
And yeah.. note 4 WILL support 128 gb sdcard
19. Diezparda (Posts: 205; Member since: 23 Oct 2013)
True, last year lg flagship G2 which available in my country doesn't support sd card. Now the G3 is only have 2 gig of of instead of 3 very dissapointed...
30. PapaSmurf (Posts: 7707; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Hey Genius (no pun intended), Droid isn't a LG fanboy. Just wanted to let you know because apparently you didn't.
37. TheGenius (Posts: 297; Member since: 06 Mar 2014)
Well actually reading my comment with a liitle bit of concentration would take you to the conclusion that I never called him a fanboy.
I called him troll cause he mentioned lg unnecessarily and shifted the focus of the article. :)
33. tedkord (Posts: 4497; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Doesn't really matter, I'm using a 128gb card in my S3 with no issues. And I think it is only spec'd at 32gb.
35. Shatter (Posts: 1989; Member since: 29 May 2013)
I have a 128GB micro SD in my Note 3, I have a little under 150GB of storage and I have yet to even come close to the limit.

Hats off to the Samsung employee who keeps track of all these different versions of the same device. I am all for a company releasing multiple products that that cater to all 3 market segments.
But this is getting out of hand. Now if I decide to buy a mid range or entry level Samsung phone, I have literally 100s of options to choose from. In the end I simply don't know what to choose.
While it is great as a company to give options to potential customers, this is just ridiculous. I doubt if even the design team in Samsung has any idea of how many different versions of their devices are out in the market.
Samsung.. Please realize that there really can be too much of a good thing. Please stop spamming the market. This is revolting. Limit yourself to mini & max versions of an entry level, a mid range & a flagship device. That makes it 6. Add the note & it's neo version. That makes it 8. 8 is enough.
21. Diezparda (Posts: 205; Member since: 23 Oct 2013)
Hahaha so much true, they should focus on quality over quantity.
34. tedkord (Posts: 4497; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
There aren't really that many. The AT&T version will have its own number. The Verizon version will, too. Same for all the other carriers. Same phone except for the radio firmware and whatever crap the carrier installs on it.
26. AstronautJones (Posts: 249; Member since: 01 Aug 2012)
Many of these variants are the same. The difference is carrier branding and locked.
Choice isn't a bad thing.
If you want an entry level phone, does it really matter?
Just pick one. What a petty thing to complain about.
31. ojdidit84 (Posts: 272; Member since: 16 Jul 2011)
These are all the same device. Every carrier in the US has a different model number even though they're the same phone. Different markets have different model numbers for the same phone. It's not 20 different devices. It's different model numbers for different phones for each specific market and carrier.
20. Diezparda (Posts: 205; Member since: 23 Oct 2013)
There is two thing i wish from sammy, first touchwiz ui it need some refresh, to many unused feature yet it's very capable device (for anybody who said it's lagging behind other oem include iOS, you are liar or simply doesn't own Samsung device. It's 2014 a lagdroid is an old story) . 2nd i wish their do so improvement in design department, i lovr my Note 3 but when you put it together with the likes of M8 or Z2 they are simply out class Note 3. It's not because it's made of plastic, i wish it's little bit more like G3...
36. JohnnyJohns (Posts: 1; Member since: 21 Jun 2014)
No 128GB, let alone a 64GB? I guess the I-phone 6, might be my last upgrade for the next 4 years! So disappointed!!! Hell the Iphone 5 has 64GB?
