Samsung has officially confirmed that the Note 4 will go on sale in South Korea on September 26, and further added that it plans to release the Note 4 in 140 countries by the end of October. In the U.S., the new Note will be sold via Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular where it'll be available for $299.99 on a two-year contract.
The Galaxy Note 4 will be the next iteration in Samsung's popular phablet line. The Note 4 features a 5.7" Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 2.7GHz Quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 16MP camera, 3.7MP front-facing camera, and a 3220mAh battery. While the handset might not be as a bold and daring as the Galaxy Note Edge, it will still offer a robust set of features, powered by an immense set of specifications.
“As the originator of the Note category, Samsung takes immense pride and responsibility” said Mr. DJ Lee, President and Head of Sales & Marketing of the IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Mobile. “[the] Galaxy Note 4, which maximizes the usability of the large screen and S Pen, will take mobile user experience to a whole new level.”
Samsung will also probably be keeping a close eye on its main rival, Apple, which although is currently suffering from the #bentgate fallout that emerged at the start of this week, it has so far had an extremely strong adoption rate of the new iPhones, which reached 10 million in the first weekend of sales.
You can bet the guys over at Samsung are stress testing the Note 4 right now to avoid a similar PR disaster as the #bentgate issue, but if it's anywhere near as durable as the Note 3 then there should be nothing to worry about.
