Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pegged for early September release with 12MP OIS camera module
Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the next generation Samsung phablet has been subject to multitude of rumors and speculations. By a latest report from the Korean media, the upcoming flagship phablet’s camera capabilities have been revealed. According to an ETNews report, the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 12MP primary camera paired with optical image stabilization.
This is pretty much contradictory as a few weeks back SamMobile confirmed the presence of a 16MP OIS sensor at the rear of the device. However, this report states that the 12MP camera module has been chosen to keep the device thin. Talking about the front-facer, the device is said to feature a 3.7MP unit to handle the video calling and selfies department.
In a different report by NewsTomato from South Korea, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will enter the mass production in July with an alleged official announcement at the IFA 2014 tech show scheduled to happen between September 5 and September 10. The report also tips that while the Galaxy Note 3 took the end of September to release, its successor will hit the stores earlier.
The Galaxy Note 4 is speculated to arrive in two variants – one with a curved form factor and the other with a flat design. As for the other specifications, the device is believed to arrive with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and incorporate an Exynos 5433 or Snapdragon 805 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM. The device is believed to run on Android L or 4.4.4 KitKat platform out-of-the-box.
Whatever, the Galaxy Note 4 will be one of the best devices to launch this year and an early launch will definitely interrupt with the sales of the Apple iPhone 6 that will release more or less in that time frame.
