Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) is just three weeks away from officially taking the wraps off its flagships Galaxy Note 4 phablet at the September 3 Unpacked event. But an Indonesian online retailer couldn’t wait for the official release. Erafone has put almost all the key features of the device on a dedicated product page.
Galaxy Note 4 to boast of 4GB RAM
The Indonesia website describes the Galaxy Note 4 in full detail, including the price tag. The phone listed on Erafone’s product page boasts of a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 2,560×1,440 resolution, 4GB RAM and 16-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization. The device will have internal storage options of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. If you want more storage, you can add a microSD with a capacity of as much as 128GB.
Samsung has been losing profits and market share to Asian Android vendors lately. So, this time the company will have to outdo its previous flagship Galaxy Note 3 to make an impact on consumers. If Erafone’s information turns out to be correct, the Galaxy Note 4 will have a better camera, screen resolution, and processor than its predecessor.
Galaxy Note 4 to cost $813?
Reports suggest that the Galaxy Note 4 will come in two variants. One, aimed at U.S. markets, will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with 2.5GHz clock speed. Another version that will sell in international markets will feature an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor. Other features of the Galaxy Note 4 include latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Android KitKat 4.4.3.
Erafone lists its price at 9,499,000 Indonesian rupiah ($813 or €607). But the price info may not be very reliance. Samsung is yet to launch the device. Preliminary listings usually put inflated price tags to make sure that their publicity stunts don’t backfire.
Samsung will hold its Unpacked Event Episode 2 simultaneously in Berlin, Beijing and New York. Apple Inc. will reportedly launch its iPhone 6 just days after the Galaxy Note 4 launch. The Cupertino company has reportedly scheduled a major event on September 9
