The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is back in the rumour mill and a new report from South Korean media suggest that the next generation phablet is set to enter the mass production stage as early as July, and it is allegedly nigh-on ready to hit the shelves ahead of the September 2014 release date.

The assembly line should start rolling sometime in July, while August should be very intense for the South Korean tech giant as it prepares to release the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 after its official launch at IFA 2014. Samsung wants to release the next generation Note device very soon after the expo, which will be held on Sept. 5 to Sept. 10.
Previously, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was released at the end of September and if the reports are accurate the Galaxy Note 4 will launch even earlier and Samsung will jump on Apple's iPhone 6, which is expected to make a huge impact in the smartphone market with the release of the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models.
Whether or not the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will launch early on September, it will surely be one of the best smartphones to be released by the South Korean tech giant.
The next generation Note device is expected to sport a QHD 2560 x 1440 5.7-inch display, which could be both in curved and flat form factors, 3 GB of RAM, Exynos 5433 or Snapdragon 805 processor to deliver record-breaking performance, 16 MP Sony IMX240 sensor and OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation,) UV sensor and Android 4.4.3 KitKat OS.
Meanwhile, Samsung might be feeling pressured to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on the market as soon as possible to appease shareholders and make up for the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5's lower than expected sales. Also, this move might combat the iPhone 6 release this fall.
Hopefully, Samsung has prepared more impressive software and hardware features to serve its anticipating fans.
