Usually these threads get created closer to the release but whatever.

Im looking into it, I have small hands and have never owned a Note device so think it will be too big for me but will see.

well septembers only a month away now! thats pretty close.
the note 2 thread seemed to get started way way before the release, I was all over that thread when I found it! lol

Ive got very small hands too actually, but you get used to the size quickly enough. my phone for before the Note 2 was the HTC Desire HD, nice size. But im hooked on the Note series!

Im hoping that they give the Note 4 a bigger battery than the note 3 & S5. From specs ive seen, the S5 has a smaller battery than the current Note 3, I get that the Note series needs a bigger battery for the bigger screen etc, but dont expect to see newer model phones with lesser specs.

hoping they'll have massive MP camera too! Always using my note for photos, Always forget to grab my digital camera

rumors keep indicating a date will be announced on September 3rd or a few days before then, Samsung Unpacked Event.

and release to the market may be quicker than previous releases...

The Note 3 has more than enough MP's for it's camera, it's got rubbish optics and sensor though, if they can improve those then that should help a lot.

The battery life is fine when it's not being drained by all of Samsung's and Google's bloatware, a well optimised Note 3 gets pretty good battery life, hopefully they've improve it a bit. If they move the system to the ART runtime then it may help performance also.

Having owned all the Notes so far I have my eye out for this one. Not sure at this stage if I'll update, I expect QHD resolution and in that case this thing has to have at least a Snapdragon 805 for me to consider it (and even there I'm not sure the 805 will be that good for QHD).

Agree. The point is do we need QHD for mobiles or Full HD is more than enough? If you look at something like Z2 the screen is great. On the other hand LG G3 has its fair share of issues with the QHD resolution.

I am not in the rush of updating to Note 4. I have owned Note, Note 2 and Note 3. I'll end up upgrading to Note 4 when it is available. I am happy to wait for a bit. I learned not to rush as the price can drop after 1-2 months.

For right now I think 1080p is still just fine. Really I just want much better performance from GPUs for emulation so upgrading SoC/internals while retaining a 1080p screen actually helps my use cases.

When higher resolutions can be done without too many compromises then by all means bring them, I'll probably have 4K everything by then to mirror my devices to, so I'll actually have a use for the extra resolution on the phone in that scenario (because on the phone itself I don't really know that I will).

I have a note 3 and absolutely love it. Will be getting the Note4 on release.

Hope they give us a camera with OIS on it. Hate the pictures the Note 3 takes because there is always a slight blur.

Love my Note 3, but I'm getting antsy for something new. Given recent pressures, I'm hoping Samsung bring out their best with the Note 4.

I'd honestly be happy if they just brought Page Buddy back. :)

I missed this thread as it slipped to Page 2!

As with most un-announced phones these days there are plenty of leaks and controlled leaks.
I suspect that these are becoming more accurate as we approach Sept 3.

Here's what seem to be the most common predictions for the Note 4:

 

  • Faux Leather back, with metal surround
  • 5.7 inch QHD screen (that's 2560x1440 pixels)
  • Exynos 805 processor with 3GB of RAM
  • 16MP Sony camera
No doubt there will be a special variant for Australia/New Zealand with support for Band 28 and 700MHz (for the near future - or now if you live in Papakura - I'm looking at you, Vodafone.)
