    Earlier this morning we already shared a new Samsung rumor regarding the Galaxy S6. It's probably not too early for those rumors considering the phone will likely be launched within the next 4-5 months. However, this next rumor could easily fall under the category of "too early." The newest Sammy rumor-mill is already talking about the Galaxy Note 5! The Galaxy Note 4 only started showing up on retail shelves about a month ago...

    Still, it's hard not to be curious about any rumor we hear about upcoming devices, even if they are almost a year ahead of time. This one claims that the Galaxy Note 5 will have a 4K display... a 5.9-inch UHD 4K (2,160 x 3,840 resolution) AMOLED display to be specific. It's certainly debatable whether a rumor that is one year ahead might be... it's also debatable as to whether a 4K display (even on a 5.9-inch size screen) is actually beneficial at all. What are your thoughts?

    Update: the above image is a Galaxy Note concept image found randomly on the web.

    I would like a 5k battery. UHD should be reserved for stadium sized televisions right now.

    I was really excited for the note 4, until it was released other then a few tweaks it was same size and shape as the note 3. Samesung just being Samesung.

    Really? So much better screen, camera, and S-Pen. Although incremental, the processor bump brings with it some nice performance and battery life improvements.

    How is that a "few tweaks"?

    Sorry to get your hopes up... the image is just an artist's concept render.

    Agreed.

    Having owned the Note 3 and now owning the Note 4, I have to say it's a considerable step forward in several ways. The screen, the camera, the speed, and the in hand feel are all significantly improved over the Note 3.

    I have the Note 3 and never paid that much attention to the Note 4 talk. Curious, yes, but kept up only as a partial observer. I think the real jump for anyone on a Note 3 is the Note 5. I think the Note 4 is more for people on the Note 2 or even who were still on the first Note. Same as when I got the Droid X2. That phone wasn't meant to be the next step for Droid X owners but for people winding down on their 2-year contracts with the OG Droid and wanted a bigger screen.

    I can completely see where you are coming from with that argument. We have been getting more and more into small incremental upgrades with new releases because the tech is starting to hit a wall and no one is really coming up with much that is "new"... and interesting. I experience this a lot since I'm on the T-Mobile JUMP plan. I upgrade every 6 months (why not I pay for it right...) and most of the time it feels like a similar device in a different package. But for me the jump from the Note 3 to the Note 4 is the biggest upgrade that I can remember in a device lineup in the last two years or so; other than maybe the Moto X.
