The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is a worthy successor to the legendary phablet family with every feature put into overdrive. It's the first Note not to grow the screen size, which remains at 5.7", but it now has nearly 80% more pixels thanks to its new QHD resolution pushing the pixel density from 386ppi to 515ppi.

It's a Super AMOLED, of course, but it's covered by 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. For those who don't remember the Nokia N9, 2.5D glass has curved sides to make swiping from the edge smoother, and edge gestures are everywhere in Android now.


Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note 4 will bring a redesigned S Pen stylus that offers better grip. The accompanying software (S Note, Multi-window) has also been enhanced. A new Snap Note app will turn photos of printed documents into editable text.

The phablet will be available in two versions – one with Snapdragon 805 chipset and LTE Cat. 6 connectivity and one with Exynos 5433 chipset and LTE Cat. 4 connectivity. The phablet will run Android 4.4 KitKat at launch with all the new TouchWiz features Samsung has come up since the Galaxy S5 launch.

The camera department has been upgraded and the main camera now features a 16MP sensor with optical image stabilization. The front-facing camera has a 3.7MP sensor (matching the pixel count of the screen) and a fast f/1.9 aperture.


Galaxy Note 3 next to its new sibling

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 features three microphones for noise suppression that is so advanced that a special app can silence selected sources of noise from an audio recording.

The phablet has a metal frame like the Galaxy Alpha and a faux leather back, which will come in Frosted white, Charcoal black, Bronze Gold and Blossom Pink. There's no water resistance though (again, like the Alpha).

There's a 3,220mAh battery powering the phablet and you can add the optional Qi wireless charging panel if you like.

The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in October, the pricing isn't announced just yet.

i noticed- i wonder why?

Anyway it looks nice- hopefully i will be able to find the S805 one here in UK....

I am surprised of the 4 GB of RAM... i wonder what bloatware has Samsung added that it requires so much RAM?

Nothing was said WRT Water and Dust Resistance

So far I'm happy, I just want to know if it is or not water&dust resistant, either way it's my next phone without a doubt

I feel sorry for competitors, as Samsung have finally addressed the lack of metal many moaned and bitched about, and they seem to have done a fantastic job with the SW and other HW

I want to preorder!

No fingerprint scanner or water resistance? Why not?

It's a nice phone but the only things I would want from it are OIS, optimized software and the improved screen. For those on the Note 2 and other phones from around that time it's a worthy upgrade for those of us on the Note 3 it's not worth it.

I love being back with my white Note 3. One thing I hate about it is Samsung cameras with no OIS do tend to shake easily more than others I have noticed
