Samsung Unveils Galaxy Note 4

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung today at an event has unveiled the new Galaxy Note 4. The company has also unveiled a curved screen Galaxy Note Edge and a virtual reality headset called Gear VR.

But first, let us take a look at what’s under the hood of the next-generation of Samsung’s flagship phablet series.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 retains the same screen size like its predecessor at 4.7-inch. But it borrows a few feature from the company’s current flagship device, Samsung Galaxy S5. Some of those features include Fingerprint Scanner and Quad HD Super AMOLED display (at 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution). The Note 4 is also dust and water-resistant.

On the camera end, the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 16 MP camera on the back and a 3.7 MP camera on the front. The back camera has 8X digital zoom and improved light sensor while the front camera has a wide-angle feature allowing the user to take panorama from 90 to 120 degrees.

Under the hood Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a quad-core and octa-core processor. What processor you get will depend on where in the world you are. It has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage in addition to a microSD card slot. The battery capacity is 3,220 mAh that has a special feature charge up to 50% from 0% in just 30 minutes.

What it doesn’t have, though, is a USB 3.0 port. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has USB 3.0 port, but the Note 4 has USB 2.0.

On the software end, the Galaxy Note 4 will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat on top of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. However, you will be happy to know that the interface of Note 4 borrowed a few features from the upcoming version of Android, Android L. The Galaxy Note 4 also looks great because of the metal frame around it. This is the new approach to design Samsung has taken with Galaxy Alpha phone announced a while ago.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with S-Pen and Health apps along with a lot of improved features and new additions. It will be available in an array of colors: Frosted White, Charcoal Black, Bronze Gold and Blossom Pink. Price and availability also vary depending on the region. But it’s expected to launch in October.

So what’s your take on Galaxy Note 4?
