Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 may be getting very powerful processors, according to the latest leak released this week within the rumor mill.  

On Tuesday, SamMobile claimed that they had insider knowledge that allegedly reveals spec details for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4- the rumored successor to the best selling Galaxy Note 3 tablet.

"Regarding the Note 4, model name N910, we can confirm that we will see two hardware configurations of the device," SamMobile reported. "First one, with the [Qualcomm] Snapdragon 805 for the North American, Korean, Chinese and Japanese market."

The same report also states that the Galaxy Note 4 will come with quad-HD AMOLED screen, along with a Sony 16 MP OIS camera installed. For internet connection, the newest Galaxy Note tablet will contain Intel's XMM7260 Cat. 6 modem.

SamMobile was unable to confirm the screen size, but did say the sensor array was the same one built into the Samsung Galaxy s5 smartphone. Just like the Galaxy s5, the Galaxy Note 4 may also feature a forward-facing 2 MP camera.

Although the latest leak fails to confirm the Galaxy Note 4's screen dimensions, there have been other rumors that suggest a relatively large display size.

In late May, GSMArena claimed that they had insider sources that confirmed the Galaxy Note 4 will be receiving a screen with a screen with QHD 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, at 5.7-inch diagonally.

Currently, there is no information confirming the Galaxy Note 4's starting price. Even so, the rumored specs suggest that the mobile device is not selling for cheap, with conservative estimates placing the price range at $300-$400. This is clearly a tablet meant for the high-end market.

Other rumored bells and whistles for the Galaxy Note 4 may include the same faux-leather cover and an S Pen stylus included with the Galaxy Note 3. Various rumor mills have said that the Galaxy Note 4 will have the fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor, just like the Galaxy s5.

The Galaxy Note 4 may hit the shelves in about September, exactly a year after its predecessor the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launched. It makes a lot of sense for Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note 4 at this time, in light of rumors that its rival Apple is releasing the iPhone 6 in fall of this year.
