Samsung sends out invites for Sept 3, Galaxy Note 4 launch expected

Samsung has scheduled an event for September 3 during the IFA trade fair and has started sending out press invites.

Going by Samsung's release cycle from the recent past, we can expect the company to launch the next iteration of the Galaxy Note phablet at the  event which is generally the launchpad for high profile devices such as the S and Note series.

So far we have heard rumours that the Galaxy Note 4 would launch on September 3 and the press invite virtually confirms the earlier information. The Note 4 is expected to be a 5.7-inch phablet with a Quad HD display featuring the latest Exynos 5430 or Snapdragon 805 processors depending on the launch market. On the optics front, the smartphone would rock a 16 megapixel camera with a Sony lens at the back and a 3 megapixel front facing camera.

It has also been revealed in the past, that the device might feature a curved OLED screen in some markets. Additionally, Note 4 will retain the fingerprint scanner and heart rate sensor which were introduced in Samsung's flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, earlier this year,

I wonder if it will be the same old Samsung plastic with the same old Samsung OS bloat?
Has Samsung been listening? Have they acted on declining sales?

They really need to reduce the bloat, at least allow a way to permanently uninstall all of Samsung apps bcoz there are redundant.

Samsung's sales have been increasing, at least on their flagships. It's their profits that have declined.

Thanks, I misread that then... Interesting.

same old 28nm, no h.265 encode, not 64 bit, no interest

Why would you need that? It's like getting a Lamborghini and putting grandma in it. The 64 bit will be introduced with snapdragon 810 and android doesn't use the os resources very well.

It's not about need but Samsung phones have usually been cutting edge when it comes to specs and people have high expectations.

It will be interesting to see if Samsung can do enough to make the Note 4 a compelling product. For what it's worth I love my Note 3.

Normally I'd be excited. I love my Note 3 and enjoy using it everyday. However, this year my smartphone money is going towards the 5.5 inch iPhone. The combination of a bigger iPhone paired with the Note 3 will still offer a great experience. Anyone on the fence with getting a Note, I'd say go for it. It's a great "little" phone.
