Samsung will likely opt for a 2K screen for its next flagship phablet, rumours suggest, as talk turns from the recently-unveiled Galaxy S5 to what’s in store for us with the Galaxy Note 4.
According to Chinese blog CNMO.com, the phone-maker is mulling an Ultra HD 4K resolution display, but it’s more probable that a 2K number will be on board with resolution of 1920x1080.
The phone is also expected to feature a 20.7-megapixel rear camera with 4K video-recording and a supremely beefy six-core Exynos processor and will come with the same water and dust-resistant build as the Galaxy S5.
Rounding off the putative spec sheet is the as-yet-unseen version of Android 4.5, 4G support and a bigger battery, which could range from 3600mAh and 3800mAh capacity.
Although whether even that’ll be enough to end the familiar smartphone-owner’s bugbear of weak battery life is another matter.
Samsung is expected to show off the Note 4 in September at the IFA mobile event in Berlin.
However, previous form suggests it could hold a separate launch for its handset, which long ago went from niche device to mass-market phenomenon and arguably invented the market for phablets.
