Samsung Galaxy Note 4 price and release date revealed: coming October 10th for same cost as Note 3

Samsung took the wraps off its new Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014 yesterday, but it provided a very vague release date: the company said that the Note 4 will arrive on store shelves sometime in October. Now, thanks to Dutch publication Galaxy Club, we can see a much more specific release date: October 10th. That’s when the handset is expected to launch in the Netherlands, and also in most of Europe.

What about the Galaxy Note 4 release date in the United States? The phablet is expected to arrive on all four major carriers, but the release date might differ from the European release date.

You can also see the €799 (which usually translates into $799 in the United States) off-contract price of the Note 4. This might seem way too expensive to many of you as most flagships cost $650, but putting this in context, we should say that this is the exact same pricing that we saw last year with the Note 3. What does this mean for on-contract pricing? We'd guess the same $299 with a two-year agreement. And as you know, Samsung has proven to be aggressive with its pricing plans, quickly reducing the initial prices.

With all this in mind, let’s recap the specs of the Galaxy Note 4: it’s got a 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560-pixel (Quad HD) display, runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, and is one of the first devices to feature the Snapdragon 805 system chip running at up to 2.7GHz. It’s also got a 16-megapixel main camera. A welcome change from earlier Samsung devices, the Note 4 no longer uses plastic only - it’s now got a fully metal frame that gives it a much more premium feel.

Given analogies to Note 3, I suspect U.S. roll-out will start around 3rd week in October and go to first week in November. VZW will be last to release the 4. :-(

iToys seem to be experiencing production issues. The only iToy that appears to be ready to meet a late September ship date is the non-XL edition iPhone. No wonder Apple's share price dropped. Nothing like trading on inside information.

Only that we in Europe, we go to get the Exynos variant, which it's more powerful than Qualcomm variant, despite this variant have LTE-A at 300mbps. Remember that the Exynos version has a 64 bit chipset wit 4 core Arm Cortex A57 at 1.9GHz and has teorically, a more powerful gpu with 16 core and problably with 326 Gigaflops.

LOL at those prices... I don't get why Sammy can't get aggressive with their pricing. I guess they don't need to. Samsung fans are becoming as stubborn and blind as Apple fans. Don't get me wrong, I am not comparing the two in capability... But most of Samsung's tech is IN HOUSE and therefore, they are not paying to too many other companies - this enables them to command a lower price. BUT WOW... GL getting this puppy off contract.

no need to bash him for raising a valid point . But we have to understand the price of phone = actual manufacturing cost + RND+ marketing + side costs . This is why young Chinese companies are able to sell flagship phones at such a low cost ( opo has done almost 0 payed marketing ).

when there was an article on PA about S5's manufacturing cost, it was the most expensive among all flagships.... what do you think of Super Amoled? why others dont use it? although everyone is free to purchase from samsung displays... why they opt for LCDs only? only reason is SAmoleds are expensive and LCDs are cheap... this is the reason note 4 is expensive... Samsung's per unit cost is higher than all others despite samsung has most in house tech

another reason is, samsung leave final retail price on cariers and retailers... it is upto them how to make final retail price

You are indeed getting a lot of phone for that price so I don't care much. What I wouldn't spend too much money on is a 4.7" screen with a 64bit chip and 2 ram. On top of it all a lock down OS and I'll have to wait almost a year for the jailbreak committee to release a jailbreak tool. No no no, I won't do that any more.

Search Note 4 on AT&T website. There's a notification email you can sign up for. Although, you'll probably know just as fast from PA.

I probably wouldn't buy it on release data anyways. I like waiting for the Christmas shopping season because most of the stores drop the prices of the phone during Christmas. I bought my Note 2 during Christmas season 2 years ago and it came out to $99 (subsidized) when it normally sold for $299 subsidized. Hopefully I get something similar this Christmas season.
