Samsung is said to release its flagship phablet Galaxy Note 4 on September 3, and we may have now learned the hardware specification of the device. A reliably popular Indonesian retailer, Erafone, has perhaps accidentally revealed everything before the event.


The device, as you would expect sports the top-notch specification with the latest Snapdragon processor in town, as well as packs in a mammoth 4GB RAM. In fact, the hardware of the device is so impressive, that your laptop might seem a bit less powerful now. Here’s a brief rundown on the specifications of the device.

Design of Galaxy Note 4

While we are yet to learn what the device will look like, some earlier leaks suggest that the device could embrace metal in its chassis. At its earnings call, Samsung mentioned that it is planning to launch several new premium smartphones and devices with more innovation, and new design.

Earlier this week, we got a glimpse of Galaxy Alpha, which has metal sides, and for a change for the South Korean giant, the device actually looks great.

The company will took the wraps off the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3. We would suggest you to take this information with a pinch of salt, as it might not be accurate enough, however, it seems very unlikely that a retailer as big would get it wrong.

At this point, we don’t know what new apps and features the Galaxy Note 4 will come with. But we believe that it will have Fingerprint Sensor which makes it possible to log-into accounts without entering password.

It will be showering devices next month. September will see the new iPhone 6 (or two new iPhones), as well as Motorola’s new flagship smartphone Moto X+1. The company which will soon get acquired by Lenovo will also launch the next iteration of its massively popular Moto G, and the much anticipated Moto 360 smart watch. How excited are you about the new devices? Sound off in the comments below.

Update: It seems that Samsung accidentally published a few teaser videos of Galaxy Note 4.
