Tech sleuths uncovered a new Samsung device in shipping records – the SM-N910A. Based on Samsung’s naming patterns, the “N” means this is likely the AT&T version of the upcoming Note 4 phablet.
Samsung confirmed the device’s existence by listing specs in a user agent profile. Most notably, the Note 4 will rock a 5.7″ display with WQHD resolution – that’s a whopping 2560×1440 pixels!
Crunching the numbers, that eye-popping resolution means the Note 4 will have an insane pixel density around 515 ppi (pixels per inch). For comparison, the Galaxy S5 is 432 ppi and the LG G3 is rumored to be 538 ppi (but with LCD display vs Samsung’s superior AMOLED tech).
As expected, looks like the Note 4 will continue Samsung’s tradition of packing bleeding-edge display innovation into the Note line. The Note practically created the phablet market after all.
Rumor has it Samsung will unveil the Note 4 this September at the IFA in Berlin, the huge consumer tech trade show. Samsung always brings the heat to IFA, so they likely have plenty more in store.
But for now, display and resolution leaks suggest the Note 4 will raise the bar for phablet screens. 5.7″ of WQHD goodness? Yes please! Samsung may have another hit on their hands if the rest of the Note 4 delivers.
