Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition (for Verizon) available now, costs $699.99

Last week, we told you that Samsung would soon release a Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition in the US. Well, as of today, the handset is available to buy, though its price is higher than the one reported last week ($662).

The Note 4 Developer Edition costs $699.99, and works only on Verizon Wireless (just like the Galaxy S5 Developer Edition, or the Galaxy Note 3 Developer Edition). The Galaxy Note 4 DE obviously doesn’t require a contract agreement, and comes with an unlockable bootloader. Samsung is offering only a black version of it (while the non-Developer variant can also be purchased in white).

As we concluded in our review of the regular Galaxy Note 4, this one of Samsung’s best handsets ever, and certainly one of the best large screen smartphones out there. Its highlight features include a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, S Pen Stylus, quad-core 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 16 MP rear camera, and 3 GB of RAM. The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI, and should be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop in the coming months.

Samsung presumably. It's the same phone, except with an unlocked bootloader. Verizon dev. ed. phones have had trouble in the past receiving updates. I'm interested, but weary. My white verizon note 4 is already serving me well :).

Think there is any chance of it being offered on contract through Verizon?

No. Samsung Verizon Developer Editions are only available from Samsung AFAIK.

Sorry, but this thing is a f**king albatross. It is just useless for everyone except a few people. There will be few updates and little to no developer support. Carrier phones, even developer models, just plain suck. (Maybe the Nexus 6 will be the exception, but I am not holding my breath.) The T-Mobile Note 4 is the one to get in the US. It has an unlocked bootloader and will have far more developer support than the Verizon model. Samsung needs to get their act together and ship one unlocked and easily rooted US model for all the GSM carriers. If people want KNOXturbation functionality on their phones, they can download some special app from Samsung that will download it/install it.
