An internal memo meant for Samsung employees has been leaked by Android Authority that reveals the Galaxy Note 4 s launch plans. According to the memo the flagship phablet is likely to hit retail stores in the week of September 15. The company has banned its employees from taking a vacation between September 3 and September 5 which coincides with the UNPACKED 2 event and between September 15 and September 28, when the phablet is likely to launch in various markets.
While there is no way to authenticate this piece of information, it is not surprising to see the company in such hurry. Apple is expected to unveil its iPhone 6 on September 9, barely a week after the Galaxy Note 4 unveiling, and the limelight will surely shift to the Cupertino-based company. By launching the phablet early, Samsung wants to take a lead in the race for smartphone sales.
From what we know so far, the Galaxy Note 4 phablet is shaping up to be Samsung s most advanced smartphone yet. It is expected to flaunt a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16-megapixel rear camera and a 4-megapixel front-facing camera. Some of the unique features expected to arrive on the phablet include an ultraviolet sensor, eye scanner, and possibly curved display too. Check out some of the top features expected on the phablet here.
In addition to the Galaxy Note 4 phablet, Samsung is also expected to unveil the Gear VR virtual reality headset, Gear S smartwatch as well as its Google Glass competitor called Gear Glass at the UNPACKED 2 event on September 3.
