Samsung will ‘Unpack’ the Galaxy Note 4 on 3rd September
It looks like September is going to be a big month for smartphone enthusiasts out there. As we just reported, Apple will probably launch the iPhone 6 on 9th September. Samsung has also announced that its second Unpacked event of 2014 will be held on the 3rd September, simultaneously in 3 cities.
The Korean tech firm’s Unpacked event will take place simultaneously at press events held in Berlin, Beijing, and New York. With the invite to the events suggesting we should “Note the date” we will undoubtedly get to see the new Galaxy Note 4 phablet. I’m sure that Samsung has used that witty slogan before in the run up to a previous Galaxy Note launch. It is also speculated that Samsung will be showing off other devices such as smartwatches but the star of the show will remain the Note 4, which is said to sport a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 display.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha coming too?
An interesting Samsung smartphone that is being talked about on the wires right now is the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. This premium metal chassis version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 has been long rumoured and it appeared by accident in a retail listing for pre-order in the UK at £549.
More recently photos comparing the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and iPhone 5S have emerged which show that Samsung might be trying to anticipate the Apple iPhone 6 by premium-ising the S5 and slimming it down. Interestingly the camera becomes a bit of a bulge due to the slimming process.
Other Galaxy Alpha specs are said to be as follows: a 4.7-inch 720p display, a Samsung Exynos octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel main camera, a 1,850mAh battery and Google Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS. I can’t wait until September now!
