High-end smartphone sales might be slowing down, but that doesn't mean South Korean giant Samsung would stop making big ticket handsets.
The company, which said on Tuesday that it would post a second quarter loss decline, has already slashed the price of the Galaxy S5 in its native country.
While the Galaxy S5 will be made available globally starting today, Samsung is now considering to hold a press event of the Note 4 at the IFA trade show in September.
There have been several rumors over past few weeks that Samsung could announce the forthcoming Galaxy Note 4 sometime in September this year.
Now, according to Korean Times citing a high-profile Samsung official, the firm is considering to launch its next big-ticket handset, the Galaxy Note 4, at this year's IFA Berlin tech show, scheduled to be held in September.
"Samsung is considering holding a launch event of the Note 4 at the IFA trade fair. It is in the middle of finalising specification details for the upcoming phablet," said a Samsung official.
That's not the end, as the senior official over at Samsung hints at the Galaxy Note 4 features. Yeah, that's right! This is the moment you've been waiting.
On the specification front, the successor to the famed Galaxy Note 3 will have either a 32-bit or 64-bit a processor depending on the market situation. At the same time, the official went on to say that the Note 4 will have variants that both support HD (1920 x 1080) and UHD (2560 x 1440).
The phone is also said to get fast LTE-connectivity for the developed countries, while 3G and LTE will be made available for the emerging markets.
"As Qualcomm just introduced a 64-bit processing technology, Samsung needs time to apply it to the Note4. For a litmus-test, some variants will have that Qualcomm tech with Samsung's own application processor," said an official at one of Samsung's local parts suppliers.
If the report is to be believed, the next handset under Note series could sport a curve display, similar to the LG G Flex and Samsung's very own Galaxy Round.
With these above mentioned revelations, one can simply understand that how critical the Galaxy Note 4 would be for Samsung.
First introduced in 2011, the Note series have been a success for far. Back in 2013, Samsung announced that the Note 3 global sales crossed 10 million in just months after the launch. In fact, the demand for the Note 3 is so high that the company recently added three more colors -Rose Gold White, Rose Gold Black and Merlot Red colors apart from Jet Black, Classic White and Blush Pink colors, to attract more customers.
The biggest highlight to own the Galaxy Note handset is none other than a large screen and the S Pen stylus.
To make the Galaxy Note range more accessible, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 3 Neo in India at Rs. 40,900. The company recently passed a price cut, making the device even more accessible. The Galaxy Note 3 Neo is available under Rs. 35,000 price slab.
