Every year at IFA, Samsung unveils a new variant of the Galaxy Note, which then goes on to sell millions of units in the following months. With just a little over three months left for the Galaxy Note 4, details about the phablet have started emerging on the Internet. 

According to the folks over at SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 4 will be available in two hardware variants — one with a Snapdragon 805 processor for the US, Korean and Chinese markets, and the second Exynos 5433 powered variant, which will be available in Europe and other parts of the world. Interestingly, SamMobile sources say that the Exynos version will be using Intel’s XMM7260 Cat.6 LTE modem and not Qualcomm’s world-LTE Gobi modem.

Samsung has generally used Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset in European and international markets, but makes an exception for its Exynos chipset every once in a while like it did with the Note 2.

Other confirmed specs of the Note 4 include a QHD resolution AMOLED screen of unknown size and a mysterious UV sensor. Lastly, the Note 4 will be coming with Sony’s new IMX240 camera sensor that boasts a 16MP resolution and most importantly comes with OIS.

SamMobile sources also clarifies that a Galaxy S5 successor with an Exynos 5433 SoC and Intel’s XMM7260 modem is also on its way, which in all probability is the Galaxy F whose images have been popping up on the Internet since the last few weeks.
