Samsung has released an OTA update fixing bug issues.
Both devices were expected to be announced later this year. The companies may have a head-on battle on the said release date as both devices proved to be powerful because of its amazing specs and features.
The Samsung Galaxy Note line was known for packing massive screen displays. Rumours claimed that the fourth generation of the device will pack a three-sided screen display to allow users to have different viewing angles. The screen display will be qHD or 2K pixel resolution based on Samsung's statement early this year. iPhone 6 phablet, on the other hand, was rumoured to sport a 5.5 inches screen panel with 2K resolution and protected by Sapphire glass covering.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be powered by a powerful processor - either the Snapdragon 805 or Samsung's new Exynos processor. iPhone 6 phablet may come with A8 processor with 64-bit architecture.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will run with the latest Android operating system. Google was rumoured to release a new Android OS dubbed 4.5 Lollypop. Apple's phablet will surely run with the next version of iOS.
The fourth generation of Galaxy Note will sport an either 16 or 20 megapixels rear shooter. Meanwhile, iPhone 6 phablet may not increase the number of megapixels of its back camera but the company continue to improve its camera software to yield better photos.
Both devices will pack a fingerprint sensor and those will be embedded on the home button.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will include the feature called IP67 certification, which will make the handset water resistant and dustproof. Moreover, the Samsung tablet-smartphone hybrid will pack an improved S-Pen. Apple's iPhone 6, on the other hand, will be encased in an aluminum casing that its rival has not adopted yet.
