Galaxy Note 4 has Octa-core processor option for some markets

Samsung's expected reveal of the Galaxy Note at its Unpacked 2014 Episode 2 event at IFA has confirmed earlier rumors of its high-resolution display. The phablet's 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display equals the size of its predecessor, but Samsung has boosted the resolution to Quad HD, 2,560x1,440, with a claimed 90-percent Adobe RGB color gamut and Gorilla Glass protection.

Powered by either a quad-core 2.7GHz processor or Samsung's 1.9GHz Octa-core chip, depending on market, the Note 4 includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, with microSD expansion up to 64GB. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, MHL 3.0, and infrared connection options are included, with the smartphone able to connect to a cellular network over LTE Category 4 or Category 6, depending on country and carrier.



On the back is a 16-megapixel camera featuring optical image stabilization to minimize camera shake, with the rear heartrate sensor able to be used as a shutter button. The front-facing counterpart has been built with selfie photography in mind, with the 3.7-megapixel camera having an f1.9 lens with a 90-degree shooting angle, stretched to 120 degrees in a panoramic mode.

While packing a slightly larger 3,220mAh battery, the Note 4 includes fast charging mode and the company's Ultra Power Saving Mode to stretch the battery life further. A fingerprint sensor has also been added, while the S Pen stylus has been tweaked to have 2048 levels of pressure. The S Pen is said to have a "more authentic pen experience" when used, and while Air Command has been updated to include Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip, and Smart Select functions, the accompanying S Note application adds the option for users to take photographs of written notes and convert them into an editable format.

Samsung will be shipping the Galaxy Note 5 in Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold, and Blossom Pink options from October.
