The Galaxy S series may have been the flagship product for the company up until now, but there are doubts as to whether it still retains that status.
This is because the company has been loading some of its best features in the Galaxy Note series. This was the case with the last two generations of the Galaxy Note devices. This has continued with the Galaxy Note 3 as well. It has also been heavily rumored that Samsung is gearing up for the launch of the Galaxy Note 4, which is expected to happen in the next few months.
The Galaxy Note 3 manages to fine-tune the design that has been in place for a long time. It is one of the first devices to come with an artificial leather cover permanently used in the back cover. Apart from providing a premium feel in many ways, it also enhances the handling aspect. This is extremely crucial, considering that the device almost has a 6 inch display. The Galaxy Note 4 is unlikely to come with a display that is much larger than the 5.7 inch unit, on the Galaxy Note 3.
However, it is expected to improve on some aspects so as to distinguish itself from the competition. As a result, there have been rumors that the Galaxy Note 4 can become one of the first Samsung devices to feature a 4K display. Samsung has already introduced the Galaxy S5 with a 4K display, but it has not been a mainstream launch like many of its other products. Internationally, the Galaxy Note 4 could be known as the first mobile phone from Samsung to feature a 4K display.
The Note range of devices initially started with a 5.3 inch display, but it recently hit the 5.7 inch mark with the latest generation. It is unlikely to change in the upcoming device.
One of the key features, that the Galaxy Note 3 missed out on, was the fingerprint scanner, which made its debut on the Galaxy S5. This feature is likely to be seen on the Galaxy Note 4. Samsung also improved the camera on the Galaxy Note 3 by providing the device with a 13 megapixel camera as was the case with the Galaxy S4. Since the Galaxy S5 has now been pumped up to a 16 megapixel unit, there have been rumors that the Galaxy Note 4 could also come with the same camera.
However, a 20 megapixel camera will not be beyond the possibilities for the Galaxy Note series have been setting the benchmark in recent years in this regard.
Despite having such a large display, Samsung has been able to provide incredible battery times on the Galaxy Note 3. This is due to the 3200 mAh battery, which may be increased even further to around 3500 mAh.
In anticipation of the Galaxy Note 4 coming to the market in the next few weeks, prices of the Galaxy Note 3 have been dropping consistently. It is now on the market for around $550.
