Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pops up on Indonesian e-store with specs and price in tow
Needless to say, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4's impending announcement, now confirmed to take place on September 3rd, is one of the most anxiously-expected events in the smartphone industry. The Note line has been a big winner for Samsung, and that can mostly be attributed to the fact that the company always goes full out when its premium phablet line is concerned. It's no wonder then that Note 4-related leaks have been creeping up as if from thin air, and today we have a particularly juicy one.
Popular Indonesian smartphone e-store, erafone, may have just let slip some spicy Note 4 details through a newly-discovered listing of the phablet on its pages. While the Galaxy Note 4 obviously shows up as out of stock, a rather full specs list is available, along with a price tag.
As you can see for yourself, the Galaxy Note 4 will apparently come with a 5.7-inch, 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution (Quad HD) Super AMOLED display, and will be powered by two processors, depending on the version -- either a 2.5GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 805 (SM-N910S) or an octa-core Exynos 5433 with four 1.3GHz Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores (SM-N910C). If these specs prove to be the real deal, then the Note 4 is also on path to becoming the first Android device with 4GB of RAM, not to mention that the 16-megapixel camera will apparently sport an OIS gizmo (Optical Image Stabilizaiton). The phone is listed with a price tag the equivalent of around $817 (IDR 9,499,000).
The rest of the spill suggests that there will be three storage options for the Note 4 -- 16/32/64GB -- all with support for expansion through a microSD card (up to 128GB). The Note 4 will also apparently tout support for Bluetooth 4.0, MHL 2, and microUSB v3.0, and will be powered by Android 4.4.3 KitKat upon launch. Unfortunately, the listing makes no mention of the battery to be found inside the Note 4, nor its dimensions, not to mention that the photo of the phone seems to be a skinned render of the Note 3 with the new TouchWiz lockscreen slapped on top, so three very important details are still shrouded in mystery.
Obviously, do keep in mind that we have no way of confirming the above information. That said, with just a little over half a month left until Samsung takes to the stage, it's plausible that retailers and select third parties would already have an insider scoop on Samsung's next big-hitter. Time will tell, so stay tuned!
