EXCLUSIVE: There may be two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
The thing we’ve learnt from tech launches is to expect the unexpected, and that’s why we’re leaving no stone unturned with this little piece of insider scoop we’ve received about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
We’ve received word from a source that there will be two versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – the one that you’ve been seeing in leaked images, like those on GSM Arena, and another that is said to be a physically curvier option.
The leaker also told Stuff that one of the devices (we’re guessing the curved version) will be made available to us at a later date as compared to the original version of the successor to the Galaxy Note 3 and that a local telco will carry it.
Perhaps, this is the “version of the Galaxy Note with a new form factor” due to surface in the second half of this year that Samsung product strategy senior vice-president, Yoon Han-kil, was talking about in an interview with Reuters.
A group of tipsters of HardwareZone indicated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 would be made available in Singapore on 26 September. Apparently, this is the same bunch that correctly identified the local availability of the Samsung Galaxy S3/4/5, as well as the Galaxy Note II/3.
Considering that the iPhone 6 may reach our shores on the 19 September (just a week before the purported Samsung Galaxy Note 4 local launch date), we’re expecting to see some serious smartphone wars happen.
Stuff will be live at Samsung’s Unpacked event at IFA 2014 in Berlin to update you on the features of the Galaxy Note 4. Till then, entice yourselves with this nonsensical teaser of the upcoming phablet.
