By launching four new products, Samsung certainly made the most of its opportunity at the 2014 Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) trade show held in Berlin. One of the new products they launched is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the follow-up to the Note 3, which the South Korea-based mobile manufacturing company unveiled twelve months ago.
Without dwelling too much on the new smartphone's specifications, Samsung showed a bit more enthusiasm in expounding on the Note 4's features, namely its 176-gram weight, its 8.5-mm thickness, and its LTE category 6 capability.
But for the benefit of those who mind the hardware specs on their smartphones, the Note 4 uses the Snapdragon 805 processor, and has 32 gigabytes of internal storage, 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and a microSD slot for an additional 64 gigabytes of expandable memory.
With regards to its display screen, the Note 4 boasts a 5.7-inch QHD super AMOLED display screen. Plus, the folks at Samsung have gingerly upped the pressure sensitivity of the screen for more efficiency when using the S-pen.
Speaking of which, the Note 4 is incorporating specific features designed to allow users to fully utilize the S-pen's capabilities. For instance, closing and opening multiple windows without maximizing or minimizing running apps will no longer be a problem.
The smartphone's interface also gets upgrades. Chief among them is a nifty see-through widget that lets users to view the background even when other apps are currently running on the display. The lock screen has also been improved -- users now can customize it according to their preferences.
When it comes to its image-capturing capabilities, the Samsung Note 4 packs a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera, which comes with an f1 lens. Samsung was quick to highlight the Note 4's 90-degree wide selfie mode for its front-facing camera, as well as a panoramic mode for those who are fans of taking extra-wide selfie shots.
Samsung is claiming that the Note 4 offers about 7% longer battery life, and that it can recharge by half in just 30 minutes only.
Upon the Samsung Galaxy Note 4's announcement, no information regarding pricing were revealed yet. However, the device is expected to be available for purchase sometime next month in October. Aside from the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge (featuring a curved display screen), the Gear S (wearable device), and the Gear VR (headset).
