Galaxy Note 4 Release Date, Specs: Samsung Phablet to Have 2 Versions Come Out, Report Says

The Galaxy Note 4, said to be Samsung’s next flagship smartphone, could have two different versions, according to a report this week.

Samsung supplier sources told The Korea Times that two versions of the Galaxy Note 4 could be released, with one having a flat display and the other having a curved display. The curved version will look somewhat like the Galaxy Round released in 2013, the report states.

“Samsung plans to show the global technology industry that it is transforming itself into a solution provider from a hardware supplier,” said a senior executive at the supplier, reported the Times.

The executive added that the company will also unveil wearable devices, the Galaxy Note 4, and OLED TVs at CityCube Berlin.

“Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note4 phablet, UHD OLED TVs, a Google Glass rival, and home appliances at the upcoming IFA,” the executive was quoted as saying. “The Note4 will have two versions ― one with a curved OLED display for niche markets and the other a flat OLED display for mass marketing,” added the executive.

According to, the Note 4 will likely be an “absolute beast of a phone” with alleged specs including a 5.7-inch QHD display and a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. The other rumored specs include a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor to go with an 16-megapixel camera .

The Galaxy Note 4 will likely be released sometime in September.

Android Geeks reported that the phone will come out specifically on Sept. 3, 2014, which is in line with when the Galaxy Note 3 came out.
