Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 release date has been reportedly leaked, according to recent rumors surfacing from South Korea.

On Wednesday, Korean-language site News Tomato quoted anonymous "industry sources" as saying that the Galaxy Note 4 will be ready by September 25. The previous Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was launched the same day last year. Even so, the accuracy of this report cannot be confirmed at this moment.

Details regarding the Galaxy Note 4 remain sketchy at best. The Galaxy Note 4 may include a QHD display with 2560x1440 pixel resolution that improves image and video clarity. In contrast, the Galaxy Note 3 can muster 1920x1080 pixel resolution or 1080p, which has become standard on Android devices.

All that eye-candy certainly demands having a more powerful processor. For faster data speeds, Galaxy Note 4 may be getting the Qualcomm 805 Ultra-HD processor. Quite possibly, the Galaxy Note 4 will have 3GB of RAM, the same as the Galaxy Note 3. High performance requirements may compel Samsung to use the 64-bit processor instead of the older 32-bit. Samsung's archrival Apple is already using the 64-bit processor in the iPhone 5s. And, the rumored iPhone 6 may come in 64-bit. So, there is no reason why Samsung would not be releasing the Galaxy Note 4 in 64-bit.

It is unclear what camera the Galaxy Note 4 will carry. Many sources say that the Galaxy Note 4 will have a 20-megapixel camera, while others believe that the Galaxy Note 4 will have the same 16-megapixel camera as the Galaxy s5. The device may include an Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) module to make capturing sharper images possible.

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 is expected to be using the latest Android software, which happens to be the Android 4.4 KitKat. Just recently, Google introduced the Android L at its I/O developers' conference on Wednesday. It is unclear whether the Android L will be available on the Galaxy Note 4.
