Along with the Galaxy Note Edge smartphone, Samsung announced the traditional successor in the Note lineup, the Galaxy Note 4. Although the size as well as the design remains more or less the same as its predecessor, the company has bumped up the specifications making it faster and user friendly.
Taking cues from the first metal Galaxy device, Note 4 comes with a metal frame but with the same removable leather back that we saw on its predecessor. However, there are some subtle changes in the overall design which makes it look well-built and sturdy.
Galaxy Note 4 retains the same 5.7 inch screen size as the Note 3, however the resolution has increased, which means the images and pictures on the display are going to be much better than last year’s device. You get Quad HD resolution i.e. 2560 x 1440 pixels which puts the device in the same class as the LG G3 which was announced a few months back. Due to this high resolution, the pixel density too has improved, now increasing to an impressive 515 PPI. Like previous generations, the display will be protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.
Inside, like last year you have two processor options depending upon the region. One comes with a 2.7 GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 805 processor while the other one comes with Samsung’s Exynos Octa Core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz. You get 3GB RAM onboard along with 32GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 64GB using a MicroSD card. Samsung has slightly increased the battery onboard, from the 3,200 mAh to a 3,220 mAh one. The battery life should be more or less the same, given that the screen size didn’t change.
Samsung has also upgraded the camera module on the new Note flagship as it comes with a 16MP sensor with OIS along with LED flash. There’s also a 3.7MP camera up front for video calling and selfies.
Along with the usual sensors like gyro, promixity, accelerometer and compass, Samsung has also included a heart rate and UV sensor on board the new Note 4. On the software side, it runs Android 4.4 Kitkat version out of the box with Samsung’s touch wiz UI on top.
The device will be available in four different colors namely, Frosted white, Charcoal black, Bronze Gold, Blossom Pink. Samsung is yet to announce the availability and pricing of the Note 4 flagship, so stay tuned to the website for more updates.
