If the new iPhone 6 Plus is not big enough for you, Samsung will be releasing the even larger 5.7-inch smartphone called Galaxy Note 4 in the U.S. beginning October 17th, with pre-orders September 19th. The phablet has a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display that tops iPhone, along with 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with an Optical Image Stabilizer. In addition, the device includes a 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera. Both cameras have improved sensors for better, brighter photos in low light.
With Adaptive Fast Charging, the Galaxy Note 4 can go from no battery to 50 percent in about 30 minutes. The device is also equipped with Ultra Power Saving Mode, which offers standby time up to 24 hours on only 10 percent of battery life, allowing access to select applications, so that users have power when they need it most.
Samsung continues to refine the S Pen experience with easier interactions through shortcuts to make everyday tasks faster and easier. With the evolved S Pen, writing is more natural, allowing users to easily handwrite e-mails and texts, capture and edit meeting notes and post handwritten notes to their homescreen. The S Pen also offers the ease and precision of a computer mouse, making it simpler to select and move content, resize windows, and drag and drop between apps.
With the Galaxy Note 4’s 5.7-inch screen, the Multi Window feature has evolved for easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how to access applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and can easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with an intuitive swipe.
The Galaxy Note 4 features a new sleek design with a premium metal frame and Samsung’s signature removable back cover for easy access to the removable battery and microSD card slot.
