Leaking product specifications ahead of its official debut isn’t a new thing in the tech world. We all have seen it, we all are used to it, and we’re no longer surprised by yet. Still when the world’s biggest smartphone seller is about to come up with its next flagship phablet device, the tech world goes wild in speculation. A leak of product specification at such a tensed time is just another thing we need to pick up the threads and start discussing it.
If you keep tabs on Samsung, which just announced a major design overhaul with Samsung Galaxy Alpha, you would know that we’re talking about Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The latest specification leak comes from our part of the world — Asia.
An Indonesian online retailer [accidentally or willingly] put up a page for Galaxy Note 4 even before it is officially announced. The page is no longer accessible, but it was up long enough to be picked up by tech sites.
According to the specification they provided, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a 5.7-inch device equipped with AMOLED display at 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution. It comes in both Snapdragon 805 and Exynos 5433 processor, 4 GB RAM, and 16 MP back camera. The device will come in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB variants.
The price this Indonesian online store puts up equals to roughly $800 in U.S. Dollars.
These online stores put up pages with unreleased device just to either get recognition or SEO benefit. Regardless, more often than not they are correct. Samsung has not announced when the device will be officially unveiled, but rumors suggest that September 15 will be the day the world greets Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Sadly, September is also the month iPhone 6 is supposed to be released. However, Note 4 won’t compete with iPhone 6, because Note 4 is a phablet, way bigger than your average phone.
If the rumors are true, next month at this time we’ll know what Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will bring to the market. But if these leaked specifications are correct, we won’t be as thrilled as we would have been had we not known the specs already.
What’s your take on the specifications above? Does it fit for a phablet releasing in 2014?
