Samsung may launch the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014

MWC 2014

Samsung is set to continue the tradition of launching a new Galaxy Note phablet at the annual tech fest in IFA this September, a company official reportedly hinted on Wednesday. The Korea Times was informed the company is mulling the launch date as well as confirming the final specs for the Galaxy Note 4. In a telephone interview, the unnamed official reportedly said: “Samsung is considering holding a launch event of the Note 4 at the IFA trade fair. It is in the middle of finalizing specification details for the upcoming phablet.”

The report brings no word of those specifications, but it appears to be a decent bet that the company will honor the ritual of adding another couple of tenths-of-an-inch to the Note’s already massive display size. Given that the first three iterations of the device have progressed from 5.3 inches to 5.5 inches and finally to 5.7 inches on the Note 3, logic would suggest that Note 4 would arrive with a 5.9-inch display.

It is also rumored the Note 4 will be built on 64-bit mobile architecture, which many thought would appear on the Galaxy S5, but has so far failed to materialize. A RAM bump to 4GB could also be in the cards. Recent reports have also suggested the company may be plotting a 20-megapixel sensor for future mobile devices. Could that new camera module make its debut on the Note 4?
