The SM-N910 model number that has been associated with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has surfaced again, indicating that the device may be heading to major U.S. carriers.
According to tech informant Evleaks, the Samsung SM-N910 will be offered by AT&T, Sprint and U.S. Cellular and will come in 32GB internal storage options. Currently, nothing about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is confirmed, but many have considered that the SM-N910 model number is similar to the SM-N900 model for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which could indicate that SM-N910 is a continuation to the Galaxy Note series.
Besides AT&T, Samsung SM-N910 also coming to Sprint and US Cellular -- 32GB capacity for all three. Could be Galaxy Note 4 variants.

The mention of the 32GB internal storage option could also be a clue that this device is the Galaxy Note 4. When the Galaxy Note 3 was released last September, its 32GB storage option was the primary variant available to customers. There was also a 64GB option available. Prior to the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy devices including the Note were largely sold in 16GB options, with 32GB options offered only by certain carriers or retailers in exclusive deals. It is likely after the Galaxy Note 3, the Galaxy Note 4 would also be offered in 32GB and 64GB internal storage options.
Reports have already projected that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may feature a “new form factor,” likely a curved or three-sided display. Other rumored features include a QHD (2560×1440) display. Like other devices in the Note series, the Galaxy Note 4 should have a large screen and the S Pen stylus. The Galaxy Note 4 is also expected to be water and dust resistant likes that Samsung Galaxy S5.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is expected to be unveiled and released in the fall. Though it is still too early to confirm, it is likely the Galaxy Note 4 may be unveiled at or around the IFA Expo 2014 in September, just as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and other predecessor Note devices were. The Galaxy Note 3 was announced on Sept. 4, during one expo’s press preview days. The IFA Expo 2014 will take place Sept. 5 to 10, and the Galaxy Note 4 could similarly see a launch in the days preceding the trade show.
Notably, the late-February unveiling event for the Samsung Galaxy S5 was called Samsung Unpacked 2014: Episode One. Episode Two will likely be the unveiling event for the Galaxy Note 4 later this year; Samsung similarly named its unveiling events for the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 last year, Samsung Unpacked 2013: Episode One and Episode Two. The Korean manufacturer is known for being quite predictable in its flagship launches.
