According to Korean site ET News, the Galaxy Note 4 Prime will have a couple of hardware features to set it apart from the vanilla version.
Firstly, it’ll have a stronger – and probably better-looking – metal body packed with fancy materials including aluminium, stainless steel and magnesium. Which totally makes sense in a premium edition of a normally-plastic device.
More interestingly, there are rumblings about a flexible display (think the LG G Flex). Samsung already has some bendy phones on the market, but putting it on a Note – one of the company’s most successful ranges – would signal to the world that it’s dead serious about pushing such devices into the mainstream.
Bend it like Samsung
Of course, it could well be that there are two different models but only one – the “basic” non-metal and non-flexible Note 4 – will actually get an international release. Samsung has a history of limiting special editions of its smartphones to the Far East, and we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Galaxy Note 4 Prime is destined for such a fate.
Stay tuned for more on these rumours, and head over to our Samsung Galaxy Note 4 preview to read up on everything we know (and everything we think we know) about the upcoming stylus-equipped smartphone.
