Samsung Galaxy Note 4 should be announced September 3rd

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 should be announced September 3rd
Samsung has been settling into a routine with its flagship releases - MWC in February gets the Galaxy S announcement, and IFA in September gets the Galaxy Note. Because of that, the assumption has been that the Galaxy Note 4 would be announced at IFA, and now it looks like the exact date will be September 3rd, just before IFA officially begins. IFA 2014 is planned for September 5-10 in Berlin, but The Korea Times is reporting that Samsung will be the announcement date, and Samsung is planning to send out media invites "soon". 

While IFA has been the general time for the new Galaxy Note announcement, word has it that Samsung is rushing the announcement a bit to make sure it gets a good amount of time in the media machine before Apple announces the new iPhone 6. Of course, the announcement doesn't really give us a clue as to the release window for the device. Last year, the Galaxy Note 3 was announced September 4th, but not released until September 25th. On the other hand, Apple announced the iPhone 5S on September 10th and released it September 20th. So, jumping the gun on the announcement can only help so much when there's that big of a gap in release. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to be just as much of a specs beast as always, featuring a 5.7-inch 2560x1440 (QHD) display, an Exynos 5433/Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, and an ultraviolet sensor. There have also been rumors of a flexible display and all metal construction. That all sounds great, but as always with Samsung devices, it is more about how heavy-handed Samsung's software will be. It seems we'll find out in about 5 weeks.

Human race probably won't last till then... Except Samsung and Apple might, because they most likely have some patent case going on even then.

Why do you want 4GB of RAM? little overkill much? and 4Gb and up is not that useful without a 64-bit CPU which only the Iphone has if I'm not mistaking.

the only reason i really have an S5 is because it's helpful in my line of work. i actually like my Moto X and my iPhone 5S more than the S5.

Unless they announce and release same day it wont stand a chance with iPhone 6 on sales. Yes the Note 4 will have great specs but again Android needs high end specs just to turn on the phone. iPhone dosnt need 40 cores and 20 ram its smooth just the way it is.

Samsung had it for a while,now all you're missing out on use a few useful features and a whole bunch of gimmicky crap that sits around taking up space and barely works

"it doesn't have to sell" Yes it does. It has to sell more than the S5 flop. Samsung knows its in trouble if the iphone does come with a bigger screen. Why do you think its attacking iPhone with all the commercials laletly. The new iPhone will have bigger screen bigger battery and in my opinion thats all they need. I left my 5s for those reasons small screen not enough battery.

It's okay. According to you, a $50 android phone is also high end. It's at the same league with the iPhone 5s now.

And a PC with a Celeron and 2gb of ram and built in graphics runs Minecraft just fine. Try running the latest Crysis on it.

They don't need to dig a grave - the could just be buried under the avalanche of smartphones they sell (more than twice as many as anyone else, in case you were wondering).

Really?Their sales for the S4 AND S5 were below expectations.Numbers are less than 1/8th of the big picture.Yes they sell a bunch of devices,primarily crap at that.They flood the market with every sort and variety.You have a lot to learn

Your post makes no sense.

Just because they didn't meet their expectations, they are still fine.

The Note series are doing fine. YoY it's sales are progressing.

QOTD: I plan on buying either the Note 3 or Note 4 before the end of the year. I love the Note 3 and I've heard nothing but great things to say about it no matter what carrier you have, but I'm starting to like what I'm hearing from the Note 4

Which phone should I get?

Not gonna lie. I'm waiting to see what Apple brings with 5.5" model (if there is such a thing). I know the Note 4 will be spectacular, but I may test the iPhone 6 for a couple of weeks and see if I miss the Android style or not.
Kind of cool that ATT has a 2 week trial on phones only to pay a restocking fee if/when returned. I talk to a lot of ppl about this and they've never heard of it. There's a lot of ppl missing out on this and think they're stuck with their phones once bought.
