Samsung, similar to Apple, has a habit of constantly staying in news for one reason or the other. Off late, the company has been in the news for the massively rumored and the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that's expected to arrive some time down the line.
For the last few weeks or so, a host of rumors and leaks related the the Galaxy Note 4 have started emerging on the web. These rumors have arrived in periods with details regarding the company's possible Samsung Galaxy Note 3 successor.
And although we're still months away from the expected launch of the device, we've already started seeing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, its features and its release come into focus.
The interest attached to the new device has even gone up after the previous release of the Note 3 whose sales already crossed 12 Million within 2 months. And that's why smartphone users are expecting even more from this new Phablet than the other smartphones.
But enough said about the Note 4 in an overview, what exactly are we looking toward if the device indeed releases this fall? What are the rumors telling about the expected features and specifications of the device? Let's take a closer look at the top 5 rumors of them all related to the Note 4.
The display section of the Note 4, for quite some time now, has seen a lot of rumors and leaks attached to it. And more so after the kind of popularity the Note series of handsets have gained over the years.
Last November, Bloomberg said that it was confident that Samsung is planning on releasing a new curved smartphone this year. However, that curve aspect of the device could change with Samsung reportedly expected to offer the device with three different viewing angles.
Apart from that, there have been reports in the past about how the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will come with support for both high-definition and ultra high-definition.
While we are not really sure what will happen since details haven't been outed until now, but it could be assumed that the Galaxy Note 4 could come with support for full HD, QHD or even UHD.
The next addition to the Galaxy Note series of devices is expected have it big in the camera department. Apparently, it's so huge that the device is already rumored to arrive with a 20 MP camera.
Not very long ago ET News reported that the device isn't due to be released until the latter half of 2014, and that since both the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 sport a 13MP camera, it's only natural that the new device will sport something that's more efficient.
Reports in the past have suggested that the Galaxy Note 4 could come with a few different upgrades, one of them being a 64-bit processor, although nothing has been set in stone.
For the sake of comparison, the new Samsung Galaxy S5 came with a 64-bit processor in favor of the Snapdragon 801 32-bit processor from Qualcomm.
But if indeed the device comes around with a 64-bit processor, it will be on par with the Apple's iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display.
Details related to the design of the new Note 4 are still scarce, thanks to Samsung's well maintained secrecy policies. However, there are few things that we have come to know over the period of time related to the device.
Reports have claimed that Samsung is looking into introducing a IP67 certified design on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Samsung's new Galaxy S5 already comes with IP67-rated water and dust resistance.
The Note 4 is also expected to arrive with LTE-Advanced support. LTE-A is known to offer faster data speeds for compatible devices, although it also requires networks to offer the capability.
U.S. carriers, although slow to adopt the new technology, are now looking into the technology. Even Verizon plans to deploy LTE-A by the middle of 2014. However, we don't know when the technology will be introduced in India.
