Google will also release its new flagship smartphone this year dubbed as the Nexus 6. The Nexus smartphones were also popular because of its fair specs and features paired with a friendly price.
Below are the comparison of some of the rumoured specs and features of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Google Nexus 6.
Google Nexus 6 was expected to pack a screen display of no less than5 inches with higher resolution than its predecessor. Google has to prove its prowess in making better screen displays as its previous panels were fair but not as stellar as its rivals. Samsung Galaxy Note 4, on the other hand, will most likely pack a bigger screen display. Rumours claimed that the device will sport a three-fold screen display.
Google Nexus 6 was rumoured to be powered by a 64-bit chipset either from Intel or Qualcomm. Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with eight core processor from Exynos or Qualcomm.
Both devices will run with the latest Android operating system. Google was rumoured to launch the Android 4.5 or 5.0 at the I/O Conference in June. However, Google Nexus 6 may gain an advantage as it receives the updates earlier than most Android-based smartphones.
Google Nexus 6 will pack a better camera of 13 megapixels, based on rumours. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will also upgrade its rear shooter from 13MP to either 16MP or 20MP.
The Nexus 6 might be equipped with the 3000mAh or 3200mAh battery while Samsung's phablet will pack more than 3,000 mAh battery capacity.
