As we are used to, each Galaxy Note release represents a major event for Samsung, and for the rest of the world, in the same manner as the Galaxy S flagships do. The attractive overall design and the useful S Pen stylus make the Note family very popular among fans. In this regard, the well-awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 2 represents the next released made by the big Smartphone manufacturer.
Rumors have surrounded the alleged device for a long time now, but now, we know far more details and specifications about the Galaxy Note 4 release date, features and price. During the time, there were many potential specifications introduced, but now, when the release date is getting close, we might assume that the latest details leaked are the most accurate ones.
Galaxy Note 4 Release Date and Price
This is probably one of the most important aspects Galaxy Note 4 fans are interested in: when the handset will be released and what price will we be paying for it. Well, al information has been made official by the retailer’s website. Therefore, the listed price is 9,499,000 Indonesian Rupiah, which equals $814, 488 GBP or 607 EUR. As you can see, its price is similar to the actual range as the Galaxy Note 3, when it was first introduced.
The release date was not made official, but as in most cases, it is simple to predict it. In this respect, considering the fact that all Notes were revealed at the beginning of September, as it follows, we might assume that in less than 2 weeks, we should be able to put our hands of the incoming handset. The first Galaxy note was introduced in September 2011, the second in August 2012, the third handset in September 2013, and now, we should expect the fourth iteration between September 15th and the end of the month.
Galaxy Note 4 Full Specs
Display, Processors, Storage and Battery
Based on the leaked details, the Galaxy Note 4 will display 5.7 inch QHD Super AMOLED display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution. In the same time, the device will be powered by two different processors: the SM-N910S Snapdragon 805 with 2.5 GHz and the SM-N910C Exynos 5433 Soc. In both cases, we will see 4 GB of RAM. The storage space represents an interesting point due to the fact that most users are looking to have plenty of storage space. In this respect, Note 4 will be available in a 16, 32 or 64 GB storage option with a microSD chip possibility up to 128 GB. The specs also indicate the fact that Android 4.4.3 will be running the new device.
Considering previous rumors, it seems like the Galaxy Note 4 will display a full metal cover, but, if we take into consideration its cost and weight, I am sure that this information might be altered a little bit.
Now regarding the display, we already know about the YOUM display. It has been rumored for some years now, but, we might actually see it on the new Galaxy Note 4. In the same time, for those users who are not eager to try out a curved display, there is also the possibility to choose a flat one instead.
In what concerns the battery aspect, the most probably is that the battery will also be improved in the Note 4, mostly since the display requires more power and more energy as its predecessors.
Gear VR Headset and UV Sensor
It seems like the Galaxy Note 4 will come with a new wearable companion called the Gear VR. This Virtual reality headset has been a debate topic for a while now, and it seems like it will be presented along with the Galaxy Note 4 in September.
In the same time, it appears that along with the above-mentioned capability; Note 4 will also introduce a new first called the UV sensor. According to the leaked details, the user would have to tilt the device to a 60 degrees angle, pointing the direction of the sun in order to make this feature work. With its help, Samsung plans t help users reduce the risk of UV radiations. The UV levels that are detected by the device are measures in 5 levels: low, moderate, high, very high and extreme.
Galaxy Note 4 Iris Scanner
Along with the VR headset and the UV sensor, users will also be getting an Iris Scanner. This is no new concept since it was first rumored to populate the Galaxy 5S or the Samsung Phablet. We might be getting this after all, along with the Note 4 introduction.
New Version of TouchWiz
TouchWiz was partially revised and redesigned in order to bring users closer to the basic Touch alternative. In this respect, we might expect to see a return to basics, to the stock Android UI, but making use of the rounded icons and other similar features. The TouchWiz will be fulfilled with the officially released of Android L in the autumn of 2914. It seems like Google has included many new design changes, such as notifications shades, quick settings, as well as a battery saver option.
Galaxy Note 4 Camera
In the last part, let me just tell you a couple of words regarding the camera feature. I know that there were rumors of a 20 MP camera, and this might eventually be quite true, if we take into consideration the fact that the S5 already has a 16 MB camera, which makes the 20 MB option rather probable. The 4K Video will also be displayed on the menu, especially since its predecessor already has it. Other rumors point out towards a 16 MP Sony sensor, which has been displayed on the 204 devices. The front-facing camera should have 3.7 MP.
As you can see, the Galaxy Note 4 release date is getting even closer, and its specs and feature promise an enhanced device, with new powers and features, ones that might be regarded as the first in the technological field. The UV sensor and the VR headset will definitely mark a change in the Smartphone area. Stay tuned for more news and rumors regarding the incoming Galaxy Note 4.
