Samsung Galaxy Note 4 To Be Thinnest Phone Ever?

James Peckham 14:29, 20 Jun 2014

Samsung’s next Galaxy Note will come with a brand new design which could be the thinnest phone ever

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is rumoured to be getting an entirely new design according to details provided by TK Tech News. Leaked photos, obtained by the up and coming blog, show a radical redesign of the alleged handset’s overall chassis and build materials.

Also: it's going to be the “thinnest device in history”, according to the source of the images.

Previously, Samsung’s Note handsets have taken most of their design cues from the company’s latest Galaxy S handset. This time, however, it appears Samsung is taking its phablet range in an entirely new direction, as you can see below.

The design is actually quite reminiscent of the Sony Xperia Z flagship series, don't you think?

The thinnest smartphone in history is a big claim and one that Apple might have something to say about later on this year when it releases its iPhone 6. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is pegged for a September launch at IFA 2014. The handset is tipped to run a brand new CPU, feature a QHD display and rock 3-4GB of RAM.

Exclusive: More Galaxy Note 4 details leak as its benchmarks show up
"The guys over at AnTuTu today released benchmarks including both SoC versions of the Galaxy Note 4, with the benchmarks also detailing many other specs of the device. As expected, the Snapdragon delivers similar performance to what has been reported over the last few weeks. But we have for the first time a good look at what Samsung’s new generation SoC’s may provide.

Per AnTuTu’s reported scores, the Exynos 5433 seems to outperform the Snapdragon 805 across the board. The Exynos 5433 sports four Cortex-A7 and four Cortex-A15 cores, contrary to what the leaked benchmarks suggest, but still manages to offer considerably higher benchmark scores compared to the Snapdragon chip.

Model lineup is not finalized

New information from our sources detail that the lineup that we reported about recently is not yet set in stone. Samsung is still evaluating between the Snapdragon and Exynos variants.

We have come across several new model variants of the Exynos model: “trelte”, “trhlte”, and “trhplte”. Some of these variants also carry carrier specific models for AT&T and T-Mobile, which overlap the Snapdragon models that we reported about last time.

Furthermore, there has been appearance of a new Exynos SoC: While we are certain that the 5430 goes by the “Helsinki” codename, we assumed the 5433 would be the new “HelsikiPro” chip. However even newer details make light of another chip: “HelsinkiPrime”. Is this the 5433 all along, or does Samsung have an even more powerful chip in store than the one benchmarked on AnTuTu?

Other details we can report on is that Samsung intends to use a new Broadcomm BCM4358 WiFi chip in its device. Recent prototypes have also replaced NXP PN547C2 NFC solution for Samsung S.LSI’s own S3FWRN5 chip.

Finally, we can confirm the rumoured 2-model approach of the Note 4: The device consists of 2 projects: “TB” and “TR”. What the differences between the two are is still unclear, but each will come in various SoC configurations depending on market. We confirm the N910 and the N915 model numbers for these devices.

Stay tuned in the following weeks as we report on the developing story."

Rumor: Galaxy Note 4 UV sensor tracking speed to be 500 milliseconds

"Last week, we published exclusive info we had received on the Galaxy Note 4, including details on its screen resolution and the new Exynos chip that will be powering it. Our source had also told us that the Galaxy Note 4 will pack a UV sensor on the front, a feature never before seen on a smartphone, and today we’ve got some more information on this sensor. Rather, it’s only a tiny detail that we’ve learned, though it is something that should be filed under the rumor category – apparently, this UV sensor will be able to track UV rays/radiation every 500 milliseconds.

Alas, that is the only information we were given, and it’s rather vague at best. Also, we’re still no closer to learning what this UV sensor will be used for. It could allow for better auto brightness when the phone is used outdoors, helping Samsung’s continued attempts to improve the outdoor visibility of its Super AMOLED displays, or it could be used to warn users when, you know, the sun is too hot, which would probably make a nice addition to the S Health app.

However, we will have to wait for more concrete details to find out just what purpose the UV sensor serves, and whether it changes the way we use a smartphone in any meaningful way."
