As always, another year another note and this time, Samsung brings a new Galaxy Note 4 for us. Though upfront, things are rather familiar to begin with, but don’t be fooled as the 4th generation Note packs a high punch that would make its own statement. Though design changes is far less evident this time around but the Galaxy Note 4 cuts all sharp edges of last year’s Galaxy Note 3 and made them round again which resulted in a more beautiful and much better design. This this looks as if they came from both the Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3 combined in terms of design.
The Galaxy Note 4 like the recently announced Galaxy Alpha also features a metal strips on the sides bringing a robust feel to it. It flaunts the same large 5.7-inch sAMOLED display which Samsung has always bragged about as it compare its AMOLED display to a LCD counterpart. Added to that, Samsung significantly upgrades the new Note 4 display that now features a QHD resolution at 2560 x 1440 resulting to a lot sharper and better images. The back still has the leather textured finish but Samsung choose not to include the faux leather stitching on the side of the back cover.
This year’s Galaxy Note 4 also received an improved camera module, joining the band of Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 now sports a 16 Megapixel main camera with Image Stabilization feature . For low light conditions, there is a dual-LED flash to help in dim environments. On the front is a 3.7 Megapixel camera which is also 1.7 Megapixel higher than its predecessor. As always, Samsung includes all the necessary imaging features and apps to the Galaxy Note 4. Also, like the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 comes with a built-in Heart Rate Monitor which should come in handy with an accompanying and supported fitness and health tracker apps and Fingerprint sensor for secure log-in and online transactions.
Depending on which region the Galaxy Note 4 units are intended, the new phablet will be available in 2 separate variants in terms of processors, one will feature a 2.7GHz Quad-core processor and another one would be a 1.7GHz Octa-core equipped unit. It comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage space. For users who needs more memory than the device comes with, there is a microSD slot that supports of up to 64 GB microSD cards.
