People have started talking about Samsung's next device from Note series – the Galaxy Note 5 – though Note 4 was released only a few months ago. Now, this leaves people confused, whether to buy the Galaxy Note 4 or wait for its successor.

The fact is, hype around the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has slowed down of late with the Galaxy S6, which is expected to be released at the Mobile World Conference 2015 (MWC 2015) in March, grabbing all the attention.

According to reports that have appeared so far, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be unveiled in September like its predecessor and come with several feature upgrades, including a 5.9-inch display and Ultra HD screen resolution.

Eight months is a long wait, so it's worth grabbing the Galaxy Note 4 which boasts of superb specifications.

A concept design of the Galaxy Note 5 created by Maryum Ayub, as reported by Concept Phones, has the device with all metal and curved body, 5.9-inch 4K Super AMOLED screen protected by Gorilla Glass 5, Exynos octa core processor clocking 3.2 GHz, Android 6.0, 32/64GB of internal memory and 4GB RAM, and 19MP main camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and 4.7MP front snapper.

Specifications mentioned in the concept design may be not confirmed or official but it won't come as a surprise if they are seen in the device when it is launched. Mobile phone makers have the tradition of picking ideas from concept videos based on the feedback of viewers/readers.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 4, which was unveiled in September last year, is a great device with great features. It sports a 5.7-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (515 ppi pixel density), powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, and runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat (upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop). It also has features like 16MP main camera with optical image stabilisation and a 3.7MP front snapper, 32 GB internal memory and 3 GB RAM, microSD up to 128 GB, and Li-Ion 3220 mAh battery.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will no doubt have superior features than the Galaxy Note 4 when it is launched but it is still several months away. So, it won't be a bad idea to have fun with the Galaxy Note 4 till its successor arrives.
