Partial specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 leak, reveal QHD resolution screen

Partial specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 leak, reveal QHD resolution screen
As soon as the specs for the Samsung Galaxy S5 were revealed at MWC in February, all thoughts turned to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the next iteration of Samsung's phablet line. What does Samsung have under its sleeve for its next big thing? We just might have an idea after CNMO posted a list of partial specs leaked for the device.

Right off the bat, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. You might remember that early rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S5 suggested that we would see QHD resolution on Samsung's flagship smartphone, but that turned out not to be the case. Now, speculation about a 2K screen turns to the Galaxy Note 4.

According to this rumor, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be waterproof and dustproof, just like the Samsung Galaxy S5. This will be the first time that the Galaxy Note will be protected from liquid and dust.

We could see Sammy's new phablet unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin, which will take place in September. We no doubt will see more specs leak between now and then, so keep checking in!

there wont be QHD its not going to happen. if it was ever going to happen it would have been in the S5. again fake rumors.

You don't know that at all, regardless of what you think, QHD is almost here in mainstream for flagships, and there is no reason to suggest that Samsung is not considering offering it in at least 1 of their yearly flagship updates or still even offering a new premium series with QHD, the note range is growing more popular with every new model so why not, if anything it would actually be ever so slightly more realistic on a larger screen where you MAY actually be able to spot the differance between 1080p and 2k, not that the human eye can tell between 5.1" and lets say 5.9"

2014 is going to be an interesting year for me, phone-wise. I have two upgrades available, but I have decided that OIS is a must-have feature. I wonder whether the iP6 is going to be equipped with OIS. If so, I might be compelled to hold my nose and give it a try. But if no OIS on the iP6, I will pass. Not sure about the second upgrade, either as I haven't seen/heard about a flagship phone for VZW other than the LG G3 that is confirmed to have OIS on board. If the L1520 were available on VZW, I would give it a try if only for curiosity sake. I never thought I would be so ambivalent about a new smartphone.

"Even more reason not to get an S5." (???) LOL . (There are only reasons to buy it , iboy.) But you are close:) It was EXACTLY the point of this "article", though

I dont think samsung will rush to QHD bcoz its heavy on system's resources OR may be samsung will come up with some solution or may be SD805 will be powerful enough to perform well with QHD

It wouldn't be rushing; they've used FHD on the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, and Galaxy S5, so it's time to move up to FHD with their 5.8+ inch Note 4.

Well the note is their true flagship line so not surprising to see this. Will be interesting to see what else they pack into it.

Not sure about "most", but many , yes. Buy the way this dumb "article" , just like the "articles" about some "premium tin-can S5"(Iol), are here before S5's day, to make ppl NOT TO BUY the great S5 Pethetic.

300 ppi was enough. . Too crazy to make more, like apple said, that is retina display

Apple says lots of things. Retina is just a marketing term that Apple created in order to convince uneducated customers that nothing could be better than what they have. The visual limit of someone with 20/20 vision is actually a bit higher that 300ppi at one foot.

actually it will be 805/810 with adreno 420/+ for the american version and a octa core exynos 6 possibly 64 bit for international, the 810 would be 64 bit and octa core as well, it would also have 4 gb of lpddr3 ram

I have a strong feeling that due to the partnership between LG and Qualcomm, the LG G3 will be the first smartphone /phablet to feature the snapdragon 805. I don't think surpassing 3GB of ram will eventuate, however, we might see DDR 5 RAM debut this year especially with the advances in mobile CPU'S.

man they just started giving desktops access to ddr4 it will be years before mobile gets that, and as for ddr5 the specifications for its building guidelines hasn't even been discussed so were probably looking at 10 years on that

Okay that was my mistake, I actually did mean DDR 4 ram. However, consoles, like my PS4, already have DDR 5 RAM. 8 Gigabytes in fact.
