Samsung Galaxy Note 4 massive specs shown in new leak
We're a few months removed from the announcement of Samsung's flagship for the first half of the year, the Galaxy S 5; and, we're still a few months away from the announcement for Samsung's second half flagship, the Galaxy Note 4 (model name N910). But, a new leak may be giving a much more clear picture of what to expect from the Note 4 and its potentially massive specs.

According to SamMobile, there will be the usual two different models for the Note 4 - one for North America, South Korea, China, and Japan, and one for everywhere else. And, as you might expect, the North American version will be running a Snapdragon 805 SoC, while the other model will use Samsung's own Exynos chipset. Word has it that the Exynos SoC to be used will be the 5433, codenamed "HelsinkiPro". The report is confirming that the device will have a 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution AMOLED display, but there is no word yet on the size of that display. Of course, since this is a Note device, it is safe to assume the display will be in the 5.7-inch to 6-inch range. 

As far as the other specs to expect, the report says the Note 4 will carry a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), which will be made by Sony. The front camera should be the same 2MP sensor found on the Galaxy S5. Another interesting addition is that beyond the usual sensors that you might expect, Samsung is reportedly also putting a UV sensor in the Note 4. This could allow for better auto-brightness adjustments to reduce eye strain, and could be able to connect with wearables to offer better sleep tracking data. And, of course, it could help to warn you if you are at risk for a sun burn when you're outside. That seems like a useful addition.

I sure hope samsung decicdes to add OIS to their cameras on the note series, and the thought of a 6" devices makes me happy. Now lets get some front facing speakers and we're in business!

Forget front facing speakers, its samsung bro. Its not in their tradition to add great music experience in their flagships specially stereo speakers. They will put decently adequate single speaker with same decently adequate headphone sound

I wouldn't say that. Samsung is known for putting all features into their phones that other vendors offer in order to deny other companies unique features. Latest example: Waterproof phones. That is why I would not exclude front facing speakers from the possible feature list.

I am rather worried about the design. If machines were about to create other machines, the devices would look like Samsung devices (cold and heartless). I cannot help myself, but I think Samsung devices look evil (even though they aren't of course).

This could never be done by Samsung for example.

Why not remove the loud speaker then? The point is that it should be better than in the past and hope (I'm sure they will) make it better

The Omnia 2 had good stereo speakers, though rear facing.

Why are you worried about front facing speakers so HTC fan saying samsung copy then.. who care about a camera

Worry more about bigger battery and better software and 805 chips. .. I really hope they don't make it bigger 5.7 is fine

I think it will be 5.9 inches this year with small increments in overall size. I hope it will be waterproof though.

What I would like is a bigger battery.

Samsung flagships used to feature the best audio chips out there. That's why their phones are so popular among the audiophile community. Music lovers don't really care about phone speakers, since the sound quality, as loud as it can be, is mediocre at best.

Why not the change the earpiece speaker to a loudspeaker. Mono front facing speaker is good enough!

OIS isn't better than DIS, S5 and Z2 proved that. Just check G3 vs S5 comparison posted few hours ago and you'll get my point.

I think Nokia would disagree with you here. Plus moving while recording on my s5 isn't very good. Don't even get me started on the terrible loud speaker either.. shower music isn't as good as I hoped it would be, still awesome to have my phone in the shower but could be louder. Reminds me of the note 3 speaker that was tiny for a big phone.

Actually I never had any complaints about the speaker on my old note 3, I guess the placement made it better than it was. As for the S5, It wasn't as loud as I wanted it to be so I flashed a mod of xda, and it is much better now, still Samsung should've went with the same stereo speakers found on the bottom of the tab 8.4, would've been a much better choice.

I 100,000% agree with Front-Facing speakers.

My next phone WILL have front-facing speakers, and I hope it does not have to be HTC, (but it may have to be if that is my only choice).

Bigger is great also ... (6.3"+ even)

But second priority is "brighter" for outdoor sun.

Sony may be another choice (if you can get your hands on one that is)

I agree about the front speakers. It should be a REQUIREMENT! :) I have no idea who ever thought it was a good idea to put the speaker on the back - they should be drawn and quartered!

I'd be perfectly fine with a small mono speaker also.. anything so I don't have to cup my hand behind the phone anymore to hear it.

More gimmicky features. I don't need a phone to tell me when I'm about to get sunburn. Use some sunscreen. Jeez

Samsung adds everything first... Watch all the 2015 flagships will have UV sensors and heart rate monitors.

You mean like water resistant phones, dust proof, FF speakers, 64 bit processors? Yep they sure do. Also the heart rate monitor on the back is no more accurate than a software based app on gp. I do agree they have paved the way for many trends but to act like they set all trends is just silly talk.

Those are viscious specs. But for me I never rush buying phones. That's why I'm waiting for Samsung YOUM device to be release

Samsung, most of your fans and loyal customers (never me) would like to see a new design philosophy!

The camera will be just a copy of S5 Active. There´s no big camera surprise in Android devices in this year. Let´s wait until next year. :-( Note 3 owner satisfied !

Galaxy Note 4 will also be Water/Dust proof...

Developer Edition will be the way to go for me!

Can't wait!
