SAMSUNG REPORTEDLY will challenge the LG G3 with its next Galaxy Note smartphone, which looks set to feature a 5.7in QHD screen.
LG has been keen to boast that the 5.5in 2560x1440 resolution dislay on the LG G3, which features 548ppi pixel density, is the best on the market. However, the smartphone's title might be short-lived, as leaked documents have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will also have a QHD screen.
According to the documents seen by Gsmarena, the Galaxy Note 4 will boast a 5.7in 2560x1440 resolution display, meaning that the LG G3 won't be the only QHD smartphone available. However, LG's offering likely will remain the sharpest of the two, as if the rumours are true, the Galaxy Note 4's screen will feature a lower pixel density of 512ppi.
That's not all we know about the mooted Galaxy Note 4 phablet. There's also talk that the Galaxy Note 4 will be available in two versions - one curved and one flat - although the flexible model likely will only be available in Samsung's home country of Korea.
The Galaxy Note 4 is also likely to arrive running the latest version of Android - be it Android 4.4 Kitkat or version 5.0 by the time the smartphone debuts - and will come with support for Samsung's S Pen stylus. There's also talk that the phablet will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chip, a 4K camera and, much like the Samsung Galaxy S5, resistance against dust and water.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 4 in September at the IFA technology show in Berlin, and we'll be there to bring you all the latest. µ
