Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 may have its release date a month ahead of schedule, according to recent leaks this week.

On Thursday, ET News claimed that the South Korean tech giant may start Galaxy Note 4 production early, due to disappointing Galaxy S5 sales this year. The same report goes on to say that Samsung is producing an initial batch of 5 million units. With this development, the Galaxy Note 4 may start hitting shelves in the beginning of September.

If the information is true, the Galaxy Note 4 may come a full month earlier than the normal release cycle. Last year, the Galaxy Note 3 was released at the end of September 2014.

Even so, this is not the first time observers tried predicting launch dates for the fabled device. Back in June this year, it was rumored the Galaxy Note 4 would be ready by Sept. 25.

At this time, there is a very little information regarding the device's specs and actually appearance apart from rumors.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Rumored Specs

The Galaxy Note 4 may include a QHD display with 2560x1440 pixel resolution that improves image and video clarity. In contrast, the earlier generation Galaxy Note 3 musters 1920x1080 pixel resolution or 1080p, which has become standard on many 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.
