Samsung is developing a premium version of the Galaxy Note 4, reports suggest, featuring the bendy screen and metal build that the company is rumoured to have been mulling for aeons.
Sources cited by ET News of South Korea claim that the deluxe edition of the Note 4 will feature a composite metal build that melds stainless steel, aluminium and magnesium.
Those of you with long memories will recall that Samsung was also rumoured to be developing a metal Galaxy S5 and even Galaxy S4, after some tech fans rounded on those handsets’ ‘cheap-feeling’ plastic exteriors.
The prime version of the Note 4 is also purported to pack a bendy screen. But unlike earlier efforts that used similar technology (CF: the ill-fated curved screen-toting Galaxy Round), this time the display will be 50% more flexible.
It’s thought that the handset will not differ from the standard Note 4 in the spec-sheet department. That means we can look forward to an eight-core processor, a 16-megapixel camera and the recently unveiled 4.5 version of Android out of the box.
The Note 4 is expected to land in September at Berlin’s IFA tech expo.
