Samsung may launch two versions of the Galaxy Note 4, one with a curved displayBy Shawn Knight
Smartphone technology is often predictable. By that, I mean it's pretty safe to bet that the next iteration in an established line will have a faster processor, a larger screen, an updated operating system and maybe better battery life. Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 4 looks to be no different, expect when you consider the latest rumor making the rounds regarding the phablet.
According to The Korea Times, an executive from one of Samsung's suppliers claims Sammy is gearing up to release two different versions of the Note 4. The first would be a standard version with a flat display while the second would take after the Galaxy Round released last year.
The latter device would be classified as a niche product and as such, would only be offered in select markets according to the source.
The Galaxy Note 4 looks to be a beast of a smartphone if the latest rumors prove accurate. Under the 5.7-inch display (1,440 x 2,560) is rumored to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, 4GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) that's capable of recording 4K clips.
Most believe the handset will debut on September 3 during one of Samsung's Unpacked events. If you check your calendar, you'll see that coincides with the start of the annual IFA trade show in Berlin. Samsung's Galaxy Note refresh typically takes place around the same time each year.
