According to the officials, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will come in two different variant in terms of display, with high-definition as well as ultra high-definition display.

Samsung Tablet Business

Samsung's consumer market division reportedly plans to revise its earlier sales target for tablet beyond 100 millions in order to reflect the demand for the devices.

"Samsung opened a new smart mobile device category back in 2011 with the introduction of the first Note. Since then, smartphones with an expanded screen have emerged as key trend. As the leader in this category, it's fair to say that Samsung aims to satisfy our customers with improved specifications," said a Samsung executive.

"From developed to emerging markets, Samsung is promoting tablets. We see more business chances in emerging markets. We will diversify our tablet lineup from budget to premium models," he added.

The company's market share in tablet was 22% with a sale of 14 million at the first quarter of this year.
