German-speaking SamDownloads has spotted a lock screen patent that has just been granted to the Korean tech giant. Could this be the lock screen on the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy Note 4?
So what clues do the patent images reveal? The date on the patent image shows “Thu, 25 September.” IFA will be kicking off in Berlin, Germany in early September. So the date on the image seems to tell us that Samsung’s next phablet will be launched on the 25th of September.
The patent also reveals that users swipe their fingers away from the center of the circle to unlock the device.
A source speaking to the site claims the Galaxy Note 4 will sport a 32-bit Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor or Samsung’s Exynos 5433 64-bit CPU. Other specs include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels (Quad HD), a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera without OIS (optical image stabilisation) tech for the Snapdragon 805 variant and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS tech for the Exynos variant, and a 3.68-megapixel front-facing camera.
