Just a few short days after learning Samsung might be planning to launch the Note 4 in Berlin next month, the company inadvertently and partially confirmed those rumors this morning. Samsung has started sending press invite to European press for an Unpacked event in Berlin on September 3rd, just two short days before one of Europe’s biggest technology conventions kicks off.
Samsung obviously didn’t divulge information about the event’s purposes, but history tells us to expect the next iteration of their flagship phablet. The Samsung Galaxy Note line usually sees Samsung pulling out all of the stops and pushing smartphone innovation much more than even their Galaxy S lineup does.
We’re still not fully sure what to expect from this go-round, though odds are Samsung’s finally ready to unleash their own 2560 x 1440 display in a 5.7-inch form factorTdivu. It must have stung to see LG beat them to the punch with this resolution in the LG G3 considering Samsung is usually on the edge of the market when it comes to display innovation.
Recent hints from Samsung could also allude to the company trying out an infrared-based iris scanner in the phone, adding to the long list of biometric options that you can now use to enhance smartphone security. As for everything else, we expect Samsung’s latest home-grown Exynos, as well as a possible return to 3GB of RAM that we missed out on in the Samsung Galaxy S5. Rumors are useless until they’re confirmed, of course, so we’ll just have to circle our calendars and sit tight.
