Samsung has officially confirmed the Galaxy Note 4 launch date, following a spate of rumours pointing to 3 September debut for the flagship smartphone.
The release rumours have indeed come out true as Samsung has sent out an official press invite for the UNPACKED event, which clearly mentions simultaneous launch for 3 September in three cities including Berlin (Global launch), Beijing and New York.
Check out the screenshot of the official invite from Samsung for the Note 4 UNPACKED event below:
The press invite clearly reveals that the company will hold a global unpacked press conference at Tempodrom in Berlin as part of the IFA event at 3pm CEST. Besides, a simultaneous launch will happen in New York at 9am EST and 9pm local time in Beijing.
According to SamMobile, the infographic in the invite also hints at the several software features one might find on the Galaxy Note 4 following its release.
One close look at the altered Air Command wheel in the invite suggests the removal of S Finder and the Pen Window functions, while retaining the Action Memo, Scrap Booker and Screen Write features.
There is also a hint of manual selection tool, which is currently a feature of Galaxy Note 3's S Pen. This feature can be used by holding the S Pen button while tracing the desired content.
Rumoured Hardware Features
Though there is still no word on the official price and features of the Galaxy Note 4, the current speculation for the flagship phablet suggests that it will ship with a 5.7in QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display and powered by Exynos 5433 or Snapdragon 805 processor.
The other rumoured features include 3GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera with Sony IMX240 sensor and optical image stabilisation. The 5.7in phablet is expected to run Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box, while rumours of a curved or flexible display variant coming to limited smartphone markets also persists.
