    One of the most anticipated smartphones of the year is Samsung's next iteration of the Galaxy Note lineup. Last year's Galaxy Note 3 received a lot of praise for its design and features, and the rumors of the future Galaxy Note 4 also point to something worth looking forward to. Still, if you thought that the rumored Samsung Galaxy F is the only device that Samsung plans to launch with a metal chassis this year, think again. New rumors claim that Samsung is considering a dramatic revamp for the Galaxy Note 4, and it actually makes sense if you remember how the company's CEO teased a ...

    Over the past few months, we've slowly been putting together the picture of what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4's hardware. Will it feature a quad HD display? Will it have some sort of wrap-around screen? One detail that arrived about a month back was that the phablet might include a UV light sensor on its face, but the rumor wasn't accompanied by any insight into just how that sensor might be used. Now a new leak helps spell out just what Samsung's up to, describing a warning system to protect users against skin damage. Reportedly, the Samsung S Health app will use that UV ...

    The idea that Samsung's next-gen Galaxy Note phablet will be powered by a 64-bit chip is pretty far from controversial at this point. We know Samsung's been pursuing 64-bit tech, and have seen evidence pointing to just such a 64-bit Exynos in testing. We've even specifically checked out the 64-bit Exynos 5433 attached to Note 4 leaks. So when @evleaks chimed-in early this morning that the Note 4 will be a 64-bit device, it was a pretty easy rumor to accept. What's possibly more interesting, though, and certainly far more head-scratching, is the puzzling analogy that came alongside it: The ...

    Even though Samsung has won a lot of praise for its AMOLED technology with devices like the Galaxy S5, it's clear that display technology will only continue evolving. We recently saw just how amazing Assertive Display technology can be on the Nokia Lumia 1520 that we reviewed recently, and it seems that Samsung also found it to be quite compelling. The company has just licensed the use of his technology, and rumors have it that we might see some products sporting it soon. Assertive Display technology adapts the displays lighting conditions to the ambient light, and even to the angle at ...

    Samsung is most likely going to launch its future Galaxy Note 4 at IFA in Berlin, as it has in every previous year. The company has found some significant success with this phablet, and we're all expecting it to push the bar with its new offering one more time, as rumors have it that we'll see a new form factor emerge. Whatever the case may be, we get some additional rumors of some other enhancements. Samsung has been reluctant to adopt optical image stabilization for years now, mainly with the argument that it would affect the thinness of its devices. Reports have it that instead adopting ...

    We know many of you were disappointed by the Galaxy S5 and are holding out for what many consider Samsung's true yearly flagship, the refresh to the Galaxy Note line. New details on this Galaxy Note 4 launch date have emerged, letting you folks know just how long you'll have to wait for it to become official. A South Korean report suggests that the Note 4 will go into mass production June-July (and hopefully leak more during this time period as well) and globally be ready for sales on September 25. The US will probably come shortly afterward if this date is correct. This makes an ...

    The Samsung Exynos 5433 was initially mentioned in an early June report, when we heard of the company's plans to skip the 5430, and go with the Exynos 5433 instead. On that exact note, there were rumors claiming that one of the upcoming Note 4 models will indeed run on the Exynos 5433 chip, while another variant, for Samsung's home turf, would be powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC from Qualcomm. Apparently, as you can see in the image above, the Exynos 5433 has been benchmarked by AnTuTu. That, by itself, is not a huge deal, but the fact that it managed to get a higher benchmark score than ...

    Rumors and hype for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have just started picking up, with a fairly large leak from earlier today moving things along. Now, we're seeing not one, not two, but 22 different codenames for many variations of the allegedly-upcoming Note 4. This tells us more about availability and hardware as well, so let's get right to it. There are three main codename bases from what we can tell -- SM-N910, and SM-N915. Those two names have already crossed our desks multiple times, so everything checks out. A bunch of different Samsung naming conventions are applied to these bases, ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 will arrive as the company's model SM-N910: that much, everyone seems relatively confident on by this point. And with evidence from Samsung itself pointing to the presence of a 2560 x 1440 display, there's little doubt that we're looking at a 2K model. After that, though, things get complicated fast, not helped out in the least by rumors of new SoCs and exotic hardware designs – all that “new form factor” business. Thankfully, today we've got some new data to help us better understand the Note 4's story, as details for a pair of models turn up in AnTuTu ...

    Just like in previous years, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 4 at this year's IFA in September. Though almost three months away, we're already seeing more and more reports on the upcoming phone. These reports seem to indicate that the upcoming 2014 phablet will have the model number SM-N910. A SM-N910A device popped up both on Samsung's website, in form of a User Agent Profile mention, as well as on India's Zauba, a website tracking import and export activities. The SM-N910A could very well be an upcoming AT&T version of the phablet, meaning that Samsung has started ...

    We're on a bit of a Samsung roll this morning, and before we turn our attentions elsewhere, there's one more report we've run across that seems worth bringing your way. Lately we've spent a lot of time talking about the Galaxy S5 Prime/Galaxy F/SM-G906/KQ/Lentis – all those different names alone (assuming they really all even represent the same device) are enough to make your head spin. With the timetable we're likely looking at, this phone could arrive right around the same time as the next-gen Note model. Today we take a closer look at both devices, as well as what new Exynos chips ...

    We're never satisfied with what we have. Such is the way of the mobile world, so it should come as no surprise that the Galaxy S5 was only official for a few hours before talk of the Galaxy S5 Prime went through the roof. The premium edition of the Galaxy S5 had made headlines more than few times before the Galaxy S5 was officially announced. In fact, we were led to believe Samsung might introduce both handsets side by side, at the very same event. However, once it was clear the official Galaxy S5 would only feature marginal improvements over the Galaxy S4's specifications, the Prime ...

    At this point of the year, when it comes to thinking about upcoming Samsung flagships we're usually looking squarely at the next Note model, but these rumors of a Galaxy S5 Prime have really been getting in the way of the Note's spotlight. Still, we've had a few opportunities to talk about the phablet that will be the Note 4, and earlier this week we heard a bit about a possible screen size. Today we change focus and consider the phone's software as a new rumor attempts to detail a few features Samsung could be preparing for the Note 4. We hear about four modes in particular: Swipe to ...

    The first Samsung Galaxy Note introduced us to the world of phablets with its (then gigantic) 5.3-inch display. A year later, the Note 2 upped the ante to 5.5 inches, and the Note 3 kept pushing things higher with a 5.7-inch screen. At this point, we're probably just a few months away from the launch of the Note 4, so what should we be expecting? Another 0.2-inch increment, or have things gotten as big as they're going to? And what about resolution; with these GS5 prime rumors and all, is it also the Note's turn to more to quad HD? Answers may already be within reach, as a new rumor ...
