With the specs sheet just leaked for the Galaxy Note 4, we thought we'd get in early and put the leaked specs up against the Galaxy Note 3 specs to see what's what in advance of the big reveal on September 3rd. We remind you that these specs are in no way final, so take them with a pinch of salt, but if you judge the leak to be legitimate then the following specs comparison will give you a good idea of what to expect from the Galaxy Note 4.

The biggest thing to take away from these proposed specs is that Samsung is really stepping it up on the hardware front. Throwing a densely packed QHD display, next-gen SoC and 4 GB of RAM into the Galaxy Note 4 is kind of what we had hoped for, but to see it materializing before our very eyes is a thing of beauty, even if we're expecting the same tired external appearance. The addition of Optical Image Stabilization and a larger resolution camera is also a nice bonus but nothing we weren't already expecting. We'll have to wait for further information on the battery capacity and software features, but we're feeling pretty confident that Samsung may have a serious contender on their hands. Now we just have to wait and see if the three-sided Galaxy Edge makes it to the market as well.

What do you think of these specs for the Note 4? Are they enough to make you consider upgrading or will you stick with your Note 3?

    The only thing I was interested in was the Battery and it's a great secret. Nobody knows. I have a Note2. I think I will jeep it foŕ awhile longer. Come on Note 5 ....

      I think we're soon going to have to recalibrate what we think about battery sizes, as the Lucid Logix tech in the S5 (and of course, Note 4) is outstanding, add that to Android 5.0 and Project Volta AND everything running on ART and things are gonna get a whole lot better for battery life.

    Not worth the jump from note 3, great specs though

      What would you consider a jump that will have you move from the Note 3?

    I Think I will stick to my Note 3. Bring on the Note 5

    • Kris Carlon Aug 19, 2014 Link to comment

      What about the Galaxy Edge? Would a three-sided Note 4 entice you? What if they do the same thing as the LTE-A and bring out a new Note 4 early next year with a Snapdragon 808 and some other better specs?
