The Samsung Galaxy Note is not only one of the most innovative Android devices ever, it’s also one of the most successful too. Samsung realized it found a winning formula and may have plans for its successor to be released later in the year. According to the International Business Times, the Galaxy Note follow-up is poised to be bigger and better than the first… literally.
The biggest surprise Samsung gave us in 2013 was their Galaxy Gear smart watch. What does the tech giant have in store for 2014? Well, Samsung Mobile UK tweeted an image of the Galaxy Gear representing 2013 with 2014 having an empty slot. In the tweet, Samsung Mobile UK asks “What do you want Samsung to unveil in 2014?” If it is not a successor to the Galaxy Gear, then what is it?
Samsung used IFA in Berlin to unveil the Galaxy Note 3 last year. And today, a report from The Korea Times claims that Samsung will be using the same trade show to announce its successor. The specific date for the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 4 is September 3.
Amidst the rumors of Samsung working on the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S III and subsequent denials, one thing is certain. Somewhere in Samsung’s organization, work is underway on Samsung’s next flagship device.
When Samsung revealed the original Galaxy Note last year, consumers were undecided as to whether or not it was a viable option for the everyday smartphone owner. And, while that question may still not be answered, we’ve witnessed the device’s success first-hand. Regardless, Samsung introduced its successor last month in Berlin at IFA 2012, and the device packs quite the punch.
Samsung will ship its new stylus-equipped 10.1-inch Galaxy Note tablet this month, arming the unit with a 1.4GHz quad core processor, 2GB of RAM, WXGA 1280 x 800 pixel LCD display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a secondary 1.9 megapixel camera and Google’s (NSDQ: GOOG) Android 4.0. Is that the right horsepower for channel partners promoting mobile devices to their customers?
