On September 3, as scheduled, Samsung officially unveiled their newest flagship device, the Galaxy Note 4. With the newest device, just about every nook and cranny has been upgraded from the previous generation handset, including the processor under the hood, the display, and the camera.
Samsung officially announced the device at a pair of events on September 2, and unveiled that the handset will indeed be coming to T-Mobile (along with the other major wireless carriers), sometime in October. Unfortunately no exact dates were provided just yet, and any word on pricing hasn’t been divulged just yet.
However, as far as specifications go, here’s what we’re looking at:
- 5.7-inch Quad HD display (2560 x 1440)
- 2.7GHz quad-core processor (or 1.9GHz Octa-core, depending on region)
- Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box
- 16-megapixel camera with Smart OIS; 3.7MP front-facing camera
- 32GB built-in storage, with microSD card support (up to 64GB)
- 3GB of RAM
- 3220mAh Li-ion battery
It isn’t a Galaxy Note device without the S Pen, though, and Samsung included plenty of features within the accessory as usual. Samsung says they’ve figured out a way to perfectly emulate the way a pen writes on paper with the S Pen and writing on a digital display, with more responsive timing, and more natural brush effects. The company also changed the Air Command functionality to be a bit more user friendly, with modes like Smart Select, Image Grab and Screen Write still present. With Smart Select, you can grab specific images or other elements, and collect them into one source.
The Galaxy Note 4 will also let you snap a photo of your notes that you’ve written on a physical piece of paper, and then convert them into an S Note.
The Galaxy Note 4 will launch in October for an undisclosed price. Do you plan on picking one up?
