Even though Samsung’s Galaxy S series is considered the company’s main, flagship line, the Galaxy Note range has won the hearts and affections of those looking for a similar premium experience on a larger canvas. This year, we’re expecting to see the Galaxy Note 4 emerge around September time, coinciding once again with the IFA gathering in Berlin, Germany, and even though we’ve quite a way to go, tidbits of info are already trickling in from around the Web.
One thing we know for certain of the Galaxy Note 4 is that it will pack a mammoth display, comfortably eclipsing that of the just-released Galaxy S5. But now, it has emerged via GSMArena that it may be a 1440p QHD offering, and given that it’ll apparently be 5.7 inches in diameter, would come in at a whopping 515 ppi.
On paper, it would be among the best displays ever packed into a smartphone. But even though the battle for smartphone supremacy isn’t fought on paper – nor do written-down specs always accurately represent real-world experience – we can use the Galaxy S5 as a solid marker in this case and presume that the Galaxy Note 4 may well offer a visual performance exceeding anything seen hitherto.
As well as the camera, early adopters and commentators of the Galaxy S5 have waxed poetic about the Galaxy S5’s display, and with a QHD offering now being touted for the Note 4, Samsung is looking to consolidate this new-found recognition for producing handsets with super high-quality screens.
There is, of course, the argument that anything over 1080p on a smartphone is overkill, but at the same time, we’d be fascinated to see just how Android Kit Kat and TouchWiz look and feel on the display.
GSMArena’s report is based upon a leaked document, which also suggests that the Note 4 is codenamed “Muscat,” and operates under “Project T” internally. Seeing as Samsung has developed a habit of changing device names to single-letter identification – the Galaxy K, for example, was preceded Galaxy S4 Zoom – it will be interesting to see whether the Note is in line for a rebrand.
Given how well-established the Note has become over the past couple of years, we strongly doubt this to be the case, but hopefully, further, clarifying info will come to light in the near future.
