The newest Note device comes either a 1.9GHz octa-core chipset or 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, depending on the country and carrier. It sports an inevitable 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a 16-megapixel smart OIS rear camera paired with 3.7-megapixel wide-angle front-facing F1.9 lens, 4G LTE ready, 32GB internal storage with 64GB expansion and 3GB of RAM.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features a more improved specs and exciting capabilities. One of the hallmark features packed in the new Note 4 is the Photo Note, a smart scanning system that detects a scanned file, specifically a picture, if it’s an image or a document and allows user to select, edit, reorder, highlight contents and add annotation to docs with the use of the famed S-Pen stylus.
Aside from the built-in smart scanner, Samsung also introduced the Galaxy Note 4’s 120-degree panoramic selfie which is a feature of the advanced front camera, kind of same like the snapper of the Huawei Ascend series. Along with camera enhancements, voice calls as well have been improved with an automatic volume and noise suppression technology to make phone calls much clearer.
The Galaxy Note 4 also has an intuitive multi-tasking feature which allows user to manage a number of apps at once on a single screen just by using simple touch and gestures. Battery life is a consumer’s concern, with the Note 4’s capacious 3,220mAh power, it promises a full-day use and with its fast charging feature, you don’t have to wait long, in just 30 minutes it mean a 50% charge.
While it’s a plastic-bodied smartphone with a metal frame, the Galaxy Note 4 now incorporates new heart rate monitor, UV sensor and fingerprint scanner for security purposes which sits right into the home button, like the S5. Though it lacks the premier Galaxy S5’s water and dust resistant, still it looks classier and better to use than the previous models. It runs Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top of Google’s Android KitKat.

Alongside the introduction of Galaxy Note 4, the Korean company also announced the Galaxy Note Edge, which shares quite the same specs as the Note 4 but not like its seamless quad HD display, the Note Edge sports a sharp screen that curves through it edge. The curve screen provides user a different, cool way of accessing information and device functions with just a single thumbswipe.
Samsung’s newest Note phablet will launch globally in October with four color options: Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold and Blossom Pink. While the Note Edge will be on sale at a later date to give way of the Note 4’s market share and will come in Charcoal Black and Frost White. When it comes to both Note devices’ price listing, it isn’t going to be cheap for sure and Samsung will likely leave the tag label to carriers and retailers.
Samsung Philippines don't have an official word yet on when it will formally launch the two Note devices in the country, including the price list.
