Liveblog: Samsung unpacks the Galaxy Note 4 super-phablet
While 'phablet' wasn't even a word a few years ago, we have to admit that it was thanks to Samsung that this device category came to be. Even since the original Note, the company has been steadily refining its massively-sized offering, in order to arrive at the Note 4. The newest installment in the stylus-enabled series is due to arrive at a Samsung-held event at IFA 2014 today. To be honest, Samsung has actually done quite well at keeping the device under wraps until the unveiling ceremony itself - a true feat for a smartphone company these days.

But, at last, the painful waiting is coming to an end. The Unpacked Episode 2 event is to kick off shortly, and we're bound to witness the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 first-hand. As you probably know, you can also watch the event live, but if the laid-back and more relaxed atmosphere of a liveblog is more like your cup of tea, please grab a drink, sit back, and enjoy our liveblog below! We'll be sure to keep you posted with frequent updates about the event and the new, supposedly massive phablet. 

Came here a bit too early? Why don't you go through our Galaxy Note 4 rumor round-up to see what we're expecting from Samsung.

Event Start Time: 9 am ET | 8 am CT | 7 am MT | 6 am PT | 1 pm GMT | 3 pm CET

I think the isocell with OIS would be a better combo than the sony censor.

Well if they use Sony 's top of the range camera costing $40 , then yes it will be much better than isocell camera.
