Samsung had a rough last quarter with its profits and revenues falling down by a significant amount. The Samsung Galaxy S5 was without a doubt a great device, but the sales were not too impressive to turn the problems around for the company.
The company may be aiming for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to change things, which it could, but an analyst believes that it’s not the answer to Samsung’s problems.
Samsung has already sent out press invites for an event on September 3rd where the company is expected to launch the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 — there should be no doubt, the invite reads, “Note the date.” Samsung has been usually the annual IFA event from some time to update its Galaxy Note series and this year shouldn’t be different either.
“I hope the Note 4 will have all those factors missing from the S5. For example, a premium design with a new design language that includes some metal instead of the plastic design of its existing products. If you look at the Note 2 and 3, and the Galaxy S4 and S5 from the front they all look the same,” said Neil Shah, research director at Counterpoint Technology Market Research.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is rumored to come with a better design when compared with the Galaxy S5, something more premium, rocking a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. There’s rumored to be a Snapdragon 805 SoC with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, a microSD card slot, 12MP camera on the back for photos and videos and should come with Android 4.4 KitKat.
