Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be launched in 140 countries by October's end

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be launched in 140 countries by October's end
Samsung today officially confirmed that its Galaxy Note 4 will be available to buy in South Korea (the company’s home country) on September 26 - just as previously reported. The rest of the world will get the handset starting October, and Samsung is now saying that it plans to release it in no less than 140 countries by the end of next month. In the US, the new Note will be sold via Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular (for the beginning). All in all, this is going to be one massive launch.

Samsung has all the reasons to start shipping the Note 4 around the world as soon as possible - especially since, earlier this month, Apple announced and launched its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, already selling 10 million units (in the first week-end of availability).

The Galaxy Note 4 represents the evolution of Samsung’s Note series - which can be credited for popularizing phablets. Similar in size to the Note 3 from last year, the Galaxy Note 4 comes with plenty of improvements, including a more accurate 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, a metal frame around its edges, and a 16 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization. Depending on market, the device is powered either by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, or by an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor. Until we get the chance to review the new handset, you can check out our Galaxy Note 4 hands-on for more details about it.

Agreed. They also should've had the Alpha in the US weeks ago (and on multiple carriers). They take way too long to release products, let Apple get a huge head start and then act confused when their stock takes a nosedive. Incompetence can destroy otherwise great products.

Yeah cause releasing the Note after the iPhone is released has actually hurt Samsung in the past? /s

The Note is for a different breed of user. This device isn't for a person who just wants a big phone.

You don't need to hope, it definitely is. Samsung actually tests their phones. Apple half testes their phones.

My wait is over. Thanks sammy for such delays. You won't ever learn from apple that things are more appreciated when you don't delay in delivering that to customers.

Dude I meant one more agonizing month to get my note 4 is frustrating. And mark my word when I will be getting Note 4 some chinese mobile maker will divert my mind with snapdragon 810 or 4 gigs of ram with same configuration or better. I was never a sony fan because I am addicted to touchwiz. And apple watch no thanks I like my ancient watch.

Dude, just buy the phone You want and don't care if any other has more RAM, with already plenty of it, it's really no big difference.

No need of sorry maccess you have a superb point and I agree wiencon but see like this there is no difference in Ferrari and VW beetle. They both are car and will carry you perhaps beetle more comfortable and no doubt more economical but its about excitement. The feeling of owning something which is better. I know specs are waste" if not utilized "properly

Will the Exynos make it to the US, or will we be stuck with the Crawlcomm 805?

No Exynos in the USA. The 805 supports higher speeds LTE than the Exynos. both are good chipsets but 805 has faster internet.

why people forget S5 so quickly? samsung started shipping S5 very quickly.... however, I wonder why they cant do it with note 4... timing of note 4 is more crucial than S5

26. willytbk (Posts: 219; Member since: 15 Aug 2012)


S5 ??? it's a failure in sales phone, regarless how fast it was being release, if the phone is not up to market's taste, they won't sell well.

we have a promo here for S5, u wanna a piece of this failure phone ? check this out :http://www.samsung.com/id/promotion/2014/s5soundalive/images/soundalive_promo_10.jpg

I rather wait to see what kind of defects or gremlins might appear before getting a new release, case in point, the S5 camera issue, IP6plus bendable issue, even the old Apple's antenna issue...

Like the Samsung Alpha, the Note 4 probably only offers high quality audio output when it has an Exynos processor. It's disappointing to be stuck with Crawlcomm's chips and their lame audio year after year. If Apple can include a separate DSP/audio chip and still make an iPhone for less than $200, I don't know why Samsung can't do the same.

In addition to through the carriers, Samsung should sell all their phones direct, just like Sony and Blackberry.
