We have been hearing plenty about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phablet flagship, from the extreme (folding screen) to the probable (robust S Health features). Now we have a little more news about when the device will land, and this is some pretty concrete stuff so we would say it's alright to take this to the bank.The Galaxy Note 3 landed nearly a year ago as it was introduced at the IFA Berlin event, although it rolled out to consumers a little later. It seems Samsung will follow a similar tactic this year and according to sources at The Korea Times the company will be doing the same with an IFA launch. The Korean Times is a typically reliable source for all things Samsung and LG, so we feel pretty confident that the Note 4 will indeed launch at IFA. The paper even goes a step further and says the company will confirm the launch date as September 3rd and will probably start sending out invites next week. The Note 4 will be Samsung's most advanced smartphone to date and will sport a wide range of top line specs, including of course the company's S Pen technology. Other specs expected to be included in the phablet are the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with 3GB of RAM, although depending on market the device will also get Samsung's own Exynos 5433. The device could well have a new competitor in the oversized screen category as Apple is rumoured to be launching its own iPhone phablet later in the year. source: Korea Times
