Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date for the US announced: October 17
As previously reported, the Note 4 will be available to buy via Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. Pricing details haven’t been announced yet, though we expect the new device to cost as much as last year’s Note 3 (meaning $299 on contract). In addition to being available via all major US mobile carriers, the Galaxy Note 4 will also be sold at Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy, Amazon, RadioShack, Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club, and Target. Samsung says that only the black and white color versions of the new Note will be released on October 17, but we guess other colors (like bronze gold and blossom pink) will be available sometime after that.
The Note 4 builds on the success of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, and is one of this year’s most advanced smartphones. Highlight features include a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (and accurate colors!), enhanced S Pen, 16 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, 3.7 MP front-facing camera, and 3 GB of RAM. The North American version of the Note 4 is powered by a quad-core 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, and runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat (with an update to Android L likely coming shortly after Google launches the new version of the OS).
