Samsung has already confirmed plans to launch a new Galaxay Note at IFA Berlin on September 3, though the company is keeping fairly quiet about the details of the device. However, as September draws closer, Samsung is kicking the hype machine into high gear and has moved on from executives casually mentioning ‘the next Note’ to teaser trailers for the device.

It’s the same line electronics companies have been pushing for decades: buy this device and your life will be infinitely better. In the case of the Note 4 teaser, we see two parents fighting and their son uses the Note to create some funny doodles which he then sends them to his parents. Suddenly, because of the Note, everything is better! The device shown in the video is the Note 3, but the URL mentions the Note 4 by name and the video ends with an invitation to sign up for Note 4 updates.

Samsung is slated to announce the new Note in just a couple of weeks but the specs of the device have already leaked. They point to a a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 pixel QHD Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 805 processor (or an Exynos 5433, depending on region), 4GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of internal storage, up to 128GB via MicroSD, and the same 16MP rear-facing camera (similar to the the Galaxy S5). No word yet on battery.

    Please don’t source BGR. Find a better one. They are the worst tech website in the world which is very hard to be with Engadgets of the world out there too.

      BGR is very bias with non-Apple devices. The website should need to rename itself to iBGR.

      That’s why the only ones that go on that are Apple fans. Just like 9to5mac. If u post something about Android or Windows, they will eat u up.

      Holy crap, I browsed them and every single article’s comment section was an Android vs. Apple warzone. So ridiculous.

    Nice Article !

    Me after viewing the advert lol!

    Me : ” I would never Imagine Samsung as a Domestic issues Mediator.”
    My therapist : “But………How does it make you Feel ?”
    Me : ……….

    Cheers!

    4GB of RAM?? I like it!

    • Jmccl

      I believe there may be an error in this leak, as the 805 is still a 32-bit processor as far as I know. In fact the sourced article states 3GB of RAM.

  • Adam Reinhardt

    Uhhh that’s a Note 3…

    • Dimitri

      What are you talking about… The specs are not a Note 3 and the image on the link is a Note 3 but do u really think Samsung would put the image of the Note 4 before releasing it?. Think…

    • Plazmic Flame

      You are right, the device used in the video is a Note 3, the article makes mention of this. Of course they wouldn’t want to use a Note 4 right now and give away the design which is what they’ll want to talk about at the announcement.

      Uhhh that’s a Samsung…Lol
