Samsung confirms the QHD spec for the Galaxy Note 4

We know that there’s a refresh of the Galaxy S5 coming to the market in the form of the Galaxy F. That device is likely to sport a QHD display (2560x1440) and more premium materials for the exterior shell.
We’re now hearing word that the follow-up to the Galaxy Note 3 will also receive a healthy boost in screen resolution. The new Galaxy Note 4 will still feature a display that measures 5.7 inches, but will see its resolution increased to QHD levels. This information was gleaned directly from Samsung’s own website, where the device is referenced by its model number, SM-N910A (for reference, the Galaxy Note 3 is referred to internally as the SM-N900).

Like the Galaxy F, we’re likely to see a more potent processor onboard, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 being a possibility. We’re also likely to see some Galaxy S5 features come aboard like the fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor, and USB 3.0 connectivity. It’d be nice for Samsung to throw in IP67-rated water and dust resistance as well, but we don’t want to get to greedy.
It should be noted that the original Galaxy Note helped to usher in the era of “supersized” smartphones with a screen measuring 5.3 inches. The Galaxy Note II nudged up to 5.5 inches, while the Galaxy Note 3 upped the ante with a 5.7-inch screen. Now smartphones with 5.5-inch (and larger) screens are becoming more commonplace, with Nokia just last week launching the 6-inch Lumia 1320 on the Cricket Wireless network. And we can’t forget Samsung’s own mammoth Galaxy W, which packs in a 7-inch screen.

That is not a Galaxy Note 3

I own a black Galaxy Note 3 and that is NOT a black Galaxy Note 3. The camera and flash protrude together in a raised rectangular platform with rounded corners and a chamfered edge.

The phone has been available long enough that there is not reason to still be using mock-ups or prototype images.

I am pretty sure it's a Note 3 Neo, not the standard Note 3. The jpg's name says it is a Neo.

Yep, it's a Note 3 Neo. The only things in common with the Note 3 are the looks (more or less) and the stylus. So I think it shouldn't be used as a reference image when talking about flagship devices.

Just a nitpick here, but the Note 3 actually had USB 3.0 before the Galaxy S5 did.
