Before the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 even makes it to its own unveiling, copycats have beat it to the punch at its own game.

Enter Goophone N4, which is reported to be the clone of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Goophone has been notorious for churning out devices that look very much like the original of various brands.
Its latest released design, according to Fone Arena, is the Goophone N4, but the revealed specs are far from what is expected for the actual Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The Goophone N4 features a 5.7-inch display that has a 1920x1080p resolution, 2GB of RAM, a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek processor, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera and 3200 mAh battery.
Still, the phone is reportedly great as a clone on the outside of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. What's more, it's already available for purchase, for those who are interested in just looking like you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Speaking of the actual specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the device has recently been spotted in AnTuTu's benchmark pages, revealing some of the specs coming with the device.
According to GSM Arena, some of these have already been discussed by circulating rumours, including the Samsung Exynos 5433 octa-core processor or a Snapdragon 805-bearing version, a 15.8-megapixe camera, a 5.7-inch display packing in 1440x2560 pixel resolution with over 500 ppi. The storage space will be set at 16GB though expandable storage via microSD has not yet been confirmed.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to debut on Sept. 3 at the IFA in Berlin.
Super AMOLED Display Seems Great in this Samsung Infographic
As the release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 nears, Samsung may be putting some effort into pushing up some of the features of its devices, one of which is the Super AMOLED display. For instance, its newest Galaxy Tab S series bears the new Super AMOLED display.
In a recently released infographic spotted by SamMobile, Samsung mentions how some of the features of Super AMOLED displays set it apart from LCDs.
One of the advantages, according to the report, is that Super AMOLED displays are more efficient and faster than conventional LCDs. This is due to the self-emitting diodes and pixels that allow for faster reaction speeds.
Compared to LCDs, Super AMOLED displays also have an organic layer of colour as opposed to using colour filters, hence, it covers almost 900% of the Adobe RGB scale so you can get the most accurate colour. Super AMOLED displays also have a wider viewing angle even when you're using your Samsung Galaxy Tab S when lying on your back.
