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!

I got the S4 not to long after it came out. Really I preferred the Note2 but wasn't willing to settle on 720p. Now that the S5 is out I upgraded to the Note3 and upgrading my wife's s2 :) Note3 is closer to S5 in specs than it is s4. I wouldn't put it past them to do 4k its probably going to be another 6 months. Really its probably not going to look that much better on that size of screen though. The biggest PQ improvement I see over the s4 is outside visibility. The s4 has horrendous outside visibility.

With Apple expected to introduce iPhones with larger screens and an IWatch I believe Samsung will pull out all the stops and introduce a totally remarkable Note 4.

I don't care what the resolution is. As long as it can achieve the same brightness, efficiency, and color accuracy the S5 has, or better.

I believe this.. I keep saying that Sammy saves it's latest and greatest for the Note line not the S line anymore...So expect big things from the N4

QHD is 4k not 2k, hence the "Q" for "Quad" which is 4.

4K is Ultra HD (4x FHD), genius. QHD means quad HD (4x HD resolution). HD = 720p QHD = 1440p understand?

QHD (Quad HD), also sometimes advertised as WQHD[28] due to its widescreen shape, or 1440p,[29] is a display resolution of 2560x1440 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. It has four times as many pixels as the 720p HDTV video standard, hence the name. Source: Wikipedia +1 from me fireblade... 4K resolution is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels.

My next phone. :) I'm betting on: 5.8inch 2K SAMOLED 3-3.5GB RAM Snapdragon 805/beefed up Exynos 5422 3500mAh battery IP67 S-Pen with further refined Premium Suit S5 features with some NotePro features (not all) As long as it has 3GB RAM, bigger batt and that 2K display, I'm happy.

I'm surprised several sites are saying water proof and not water resistant. Samsung has carefully chose the latter definition for the S5. Probably a good call considering what the S4 Active had going on with it.

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.

um you need to re read your specs thats GDDR5 not DDR5 huge difference, GDDR is your graphics ram where as DDR is your systems ram and GDDR has been around for years where as DDR4 was just announced with the haswell E chip

DDR 5 RAM?? DDR 4 RAM,for now still not exists in mobile space

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

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.

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.
