Not sure about the 4Gb of RAM. I suspect what is on the website is just what the vendor thinks will be the spec listing. We will have the official answer soon enough, though.

Why? Samsung had 3GB in the Note 3. I think one year later they can add one more GB right?
Who knows, but to me this phone is a winner. I am going to be sure to buy the Developer Edition though.

I must say that the Note 4 is a very attractive phone to have right now. I'll admit that I'm not as excited as I was for the Note 3, but the Note 4 is my new must-have smartphone over the note 3. My only concern right now is the design and if its appealing then......*sigh*.......I'd have to renew my contract with AT&T to get the Note 4 lol

Not really, 32 bit can handle a little over that. 2 to the power of 32 is 4,294,967,296.
105. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4498; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
Not really. Ram is great for multi-tasking. The more the better!

Just exactly what I thought first, (that goes for both your id and your comment) :)
78. joseanand (Posts: 1; Member since: 14 Aug 2014)
Note 1 = 1 GB RAM
Note 2 = 2 GB RAM
Note 3 = 3 GB RAM
Note 4 = 4 GB RAM??

I can believe 4GB of RAM before I can get with Android 4.4.3 when the Alpha has 4.4.4.
Someone also said that this particular spec sheet has been floating around for a while on the net so who knows.
I've been waiting for an official announcement to see what will really be there and I may spring for a Google experience version this time around.

plus we know from the gsmarena leak that the ois camera is a 16 ois and a new 3.2 front with wide angle and a software dedicated touch sensor on the side. plus we know its going to be a min of 4.4.4 if not the first offical android l
113. engineer-1701d (Posts: 1459; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
its fake its a note 3 listing they want publicity they said specs but no battery size and the specs are all the specs we have know about from ois to cores, and qhd. wish it was real news but its fake.

This beast is gonna Annihilate the competetion.
Hope it has the same design of the Alpha.
Although I'm still confused about the 4GB RAM.
69. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4498; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
The Note Series officially after the Note 2 has been Samsung's flagship. The GS5 is not the flagship. The Note series is their bread & butter. It will not fail. It hasn't yet!

Yep, finally, someone with some sense! +1
108. bonsly16 (Posts: 58; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
Huh? Based on sales and advertising, the Galaxy is still the flagship phone of Samsung Mobile. Maybe when the Note 4 releases.
115. engineer-1701d (Posts: 1459; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
so much truth here that apple got scared and said there making fun of me steve , woz what can i do, oh yeah steal the android phones looks and size and pretend to be a big dog yapping with its little 1 gig ram baby battery, little res thats what she said, and copy nfc if they can get it right and call it all new innovation!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeah look what i did, pos apple is a big app drew thats all so messy just pages and copied folders and app after app to make up for the lame phone that costs more then all the rest and a company that prey on the stupid thanks to marketing.
73. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4131; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
These specs are nonsense. Not even Samsung with their infinite variations would go as far as making a 32 bit and 64 bit Note 4; especially since the 32 bit wouldn't be able to use all the RAM. If they do end up with that, all faith in Samsung is lost for me.
Galaxy Note 4 variants:
32 bit Snapdragon
64 bit Exynos
64 bit Snapdragon when the 810 releases
Galaxy Note 4 Edge with a curved display
Note 4 Neo
Note 4 LTE-A
Note 4 Neo LTE-A
Samsung is going downhill quickly. Their designs suck except for the Alpha (which still isn't even that great), their software sucks, and all these hardware variations under the same brand are getting out of control. They need flagship tier specs to compensate for Touchwiz, and even then it's still noticeably slower than the Nexus or other skins when multitasking.

IPhone's look hideous than Samsung phones
Big round curves

Again you have proven me right that you are a mindless freak-show .
When did he ask you about iPhone ? did he even mention iPhone ?
116. engineer-1701d (Posts: 1459; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
yes you lame pul kit above jakelee you and he need to get a room.
122. pulkit1 (Posts: 354; Member since: 03 Jul 2014)
don't put your stupid nose where it does not belong , read properly why i behaves like that .
103. dontneedtoknow (Posts: 153; Member since: 17 Feb 2014)
Better than cheap samsung s**t! i would own any other android device if I hadn't bought Samsung smart tv, It makes it convenient also the camera is pretty good.

This is just an overwhelming beast, my probably first Samsung phone is getting nearer now.
5. Zomer (Posts: 89; Member since: 31 May 2013)
Can you use 4GB RAM in combination with a 32-bit chipset?
14. kassi (Posts: 90; Member since: 25 May 2013)
it was possible on PCs, you get only 3.8GB or 3.9 GB anyway.
18. power_x (Posts: 244; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)
You would get 3.75 as android system is always taking a quarter gig
15. azalucel (Posts: 95; Member since: 27 Dec 2013)
Yes linux with pae can use more ram and since android is built on linux it should be possible
94. yowanvista (Posts: 323; Member since: 20 Sep 2011)
It's possible with PAE on x86 and LPAE on ARM (Cortex-A15 onwards).

That site Erafone is just spamming the web with their made up specs. That pic has been around a while too.
111. pegasso (Posts: 207; Member since: 27 Nov 2011)
i doubt that.
Erafone is cellphone retailer with good reputation in Indonesia,
they wouldn't want to ruin it.

Oops. Not buy until sammy brought us Snapdragon version. Will not fall crappy exynos again. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
10. billgates (banned) (Posts: 555; Member since: 29 May 2014)
Lol 16 GB? Should be a minimum of 32. All the other specs are solid
11. kkmkk (Posts: 122; Member since: 06 May 2013)
AOSP rom on this thing would be something else
13. GreekGeek (Posts: 849; Member since: 22 Mar 2014)
To be safe, always choose the Snapdragon variant
22. JakeLee (banned) (Posts: 1021; Member since: 02 Nov 2013)
Although I heard some good things about recent Suxynos I still don't trust Sammy.
Better stick to the last generation of 32-bit than having troubles with bogus 64bit Android.

suxynos lolollolol you made my day :D
30. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Well the Exynos 32bit did Buttkick your A7 64bit out of the water
40. JakeLee (banned) (Posts: 1021; Member since: 02 Nov 2013)
At what clock?
Did they run 64bit routines on A7?
If yes, did the same guy write both 32/64bit codes?
Whatever, they are synthetic benchmarks heavily dependent on the algorithm/implementation and doesn't tell much.
People claiming Java to be not slow always refer to some benchmark scores.
Well, Java isn't that bad dealing with primitive data types most benchmarks concentrate on, but as soon as custom data types/classes are there, the horror begins.
And I don't have to say which data types are mostly used in real apps.

And yet, in real usage iP4s is less laggy than your Android.
63. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Because your platform is still a light halfbaked
67. AfterShock (Posts: 3449; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
So you think your app drawer is faster?
Too bad that's all it is basically.
100. pulkit1 (Posts: 354; Member since: 03 Jul 2014)
again a stupid comment by the most stupid person on pa. you are comparing a 1.9ghz X 4 a7 instruction set ( geek bench :2800) to a 1.3ghz x 2 a8 instruction set ( geek bench :2580). TDP of 4.0w vs 2.3 w ( provided both running at max load under whatever the respective limits the companies have set ). A7 is the chip of the future ( you will notice the difference in couple of years when most android apps will be written for this instruction set starting with the new denver and snapdragons .)
24. kassi (Posts: 90; Member since: 25 May 2013)
true, when the clocks of the mali t760 in the exynos are the same as in rockchip, then the adreno 420 will even be superior.
101. Smith12 (Posts: 3; Member since: 14 Aug 2014)
mali t760 mp16 will probably outstands even adreno 430 qualcomm gpu's are low like cpu's

xynos chips have always tended to outperform Snapdragons released at about the same time.
Problem is that Cortex-A15 has been a dud in terms of power consumption, which is why it hasn't been seen in anything but a small percentage of mainline phones. Even in tablets where its poor power efficiency is less of an issue, Qualcomm Kraits have been dominating.
big.LITTLE helps a bit here, but the truth is - at peak performance, Krait is far more power efficient than the A15, which means that it takes longer for a Krait to hit thermal throttling limits and can run for longer on battery. What's the point of having that insane peak performance if you can't sustain it without overheating or killing the battery?
Snapdragons didn't have such a clear advantage when it came to Scorpion vs. Cortex-A9, or even dual-Krait vs. quad-A9 which is why Exynos 4210 and 4412 dominated Samsung's handset lineup in their heyday - but the A15 has been a failure outside of the tablet and Chromebook market.
Samsung will claim the reason for Krait dominating their handset lineup is LTE in public documentation, but the Note 2 and international LTE GS3 (I9305) proved that Samsung can hang a Qualcomm LTE modem off of an Exynos CPU.
Specs are the same
The Cpu, Gpu destroys the S805, let alone S801.

In short, Suxynos sucked.
You are just listing excuses for Suxynos' lackluster performance, and for whatever the reason, the fact remains : it sucked. It was and is a mistake for the consumers to choose Suxynos over SD.
And obviously you don't know a thing about SoC.
SoC =/= CPU
49. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Snapdragon still relying on pos A9 modified.
52. JakeLee (banned) (Posts: 1021; Member since: 02 Nov 2013)
Where did you read that crap?
Did you check the instruction cycle timings?
Krait is clearly optimized CA15.
You ALWAYS ctrl+c/v from somewhere else.
You only talk about CPU/GPU/Modem. SoC is FAR more than that.
