PRODUCTION of Samsung's rumoured Galaxy Note 4 reportedly will begin next month ahead of the handset's unveiling in September.

That's according to Korean media, which reported on Wednesday that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will enter mass production in "June/July" before it is unveiled at the IFA technology conference in Berlin in September.

Following its IFA unveiling, the Galaxy Note 4 will arrive in shops on 25 September, according to the report's shareholder sources - the same release date given to last year's Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and likely a similar release date to the mooted iPhone 6 models.

That's not all we know about Samsung's mooted next generation phablet. According to previous speculation, the Galaxy Note 3 will be squaring up to the LG G3 with its 5.7in QHD 2560x1440 resolution display, and will be powered by Samsung's octa-core Exynos 5 in some regions, and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 chip in others.

With Google expected to unveil the next version of Android later today, likely Android 5.0 'L', the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to arrive running the latest version, which Samsung no doubt will heavily skin in its own custom user interface. Samsung also is likely to furnish the Galaxy Note 4 with a stylus like that found on previous models.

Other anticipated specifications include Galaxy S5-style IP67 certification, dual 16MP and 3MP cameras, up to 128GB of microSD card storage, 4G LTE connectivity and a fingerprint scanner.

While a rumoured release date has already appeared, there's no word regarding pricing yet. However, if anything like last year's model, the Galaxy Note 4 likely will fetch around £550.
