Forget the Samsung Galaxy Alpha — the Galaxy Note 4 looks like a proper flagship worthy of your attention. Or at least it does according to this alleged retail listing leak, which pips Samsung to the post by apparently spilling all the smartphone's secret specs.
According to the Erafone listing, the Galaxy Note 4 will have a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, running at an eye-popping 1440 x 2560 resolution. That'd give it a pixel density of 515ppi, giving the LG G3 a run for its money. Surprisingly (or you could argue, suspiciously), the listing states the handset will come running Android 4.4.3, not the newer 4.4.4 build. It may be a mistake, it may be an oversight from Samsung, or it could indicate that the listing is, in fact, a hoax.
Depending on the territory it's sold in, the handset is said to come with either a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, or a Exynos 5433 1.3GHz octa-core variant (likely headed to Asia). Regardless of processor, the Note 4 is said to squeeze in 4GB of speedy DDR4 RAM, and support LTE-A 300Mbps 4G download speeds.
A 16MP camera sits on the rear (though no front-facing megapixel count is shared), while 16GB, 32Gb and 64GB models are said to be on the way. All will support microSD expansion up to 128GB. As for price, it converts to roughly £488, though that sounds far too cheap to translate directly to a UK price, should the above specs be legit. Samsung's next Unpacked event is scheduled for September 3rd — expect to find out more then. [Phone Arena]
