I'm Dutch so it'll be easy to read the picture. :)
I've got now the Galaxy Note 2 and the Note 4 will be the follower.

In The Netherlands it'll cost about €699. Around 938 dollars. The same price as the Note 3 when it came out.
So it won't be cheap..

Did anyone else notice the August 13 date on the bottom?
I mean I don't understand what it says but the date is there
Coincidentally the rumored date for Galaxy Alpha announcement

Can anyone translate that part?

i really hope there is no lag since it has the 805. Thought it would have android L but since it won't be in November. i really hope they update it to L within 3 months.

Wonder with the resolution increase if battery performance will suffer? My friend upgrade a G2 to G3 and battery drains fast. After battery life on Note 3 just couldn't go back to any less. Other then that I know a beast awaits.

Expecting the Note 4 to take on most of the characteristics of the S5. Am sure it will have the same camera, same dimples on the back cover, same IP67 certification and all the other S5 features. After ll, the Note is just an S with a pen and larger size.

My Note 3 has been so good, I dunno if I am ready to depart with it.

Snapdragon 805, QHD screen, samey battery, samey RAM, samey storage, more bloatware plus a few gimmicky software features that you can probably install in the Note 2 or 3 when custom ROMs become readily available

What else is groundbreaking here? What????

i hope the screen estate is 5.9 or greater, been the 1 priority phone feature since moving to o2 flame, htc hd2, dell streak 5, note 1, note 2 and currently rocking the note 3.
there are other phones with >5.7" but they usually lack the performance spec except pantech secret note but only sold in korea :(

still i will definitely buy it but not as excited as before if the screen remain static

Nice piece of device.. After Samsung will flood the market with their crappy Exynos version. They will showcase the Snapdragon version but will flood the whole market with that redundant Exynos that lag like hell on touchwiz. Too bad my country always get the crappy version. This was how I was tricked into buying Samsung galaxy note 10.1(2014 edition) with Exynos chips. The nonsense lag even when they claim to have made it with 3GB of RAM

This phone is already outdated. It's running Snapdragon 805; which is the best, but last 32-bit processor.

So it most likely won't have 4GB RAM, or anything impressive, it won't have 128GB storage either, since you know, Samsung does nothing until Apple shows them the way.

As for design, I don't think anybody expects anything decent from Samsung's design department.

I had similar doubts about the Note 3. But it ended up being quite a nice device.

Sure KNOX/ATT somewhat ruined it, but the hardware itself was solid.

It's a phone/phablet with major weaknesses except perhaps the lower quality audio output through the headphones on the Qualcomm models.

I think Samsung will deliver a Note 4 that's along these lines -- a very capable device with no major weaknesses. It won't be 64-bit as it is too early for that. The top end 64-bit chips aren't out yet or take too much power. And Android 64-bit needs some more time on the stove.

A 5.7" S5 with a modern latest-gen AMOLED screen, 3GB RAM, Qualcomm 805, big battery, 16MP OIS camera, S-Pen, etc. is going to be quite a nice phone. Personally, I don't care if it is water resistant. But I would like to see an "activity button". That is a very useful feature of the S5 Active. Long press to unlock and go to camera and then it becomes the shutter. Just like the Z2.

The one spec phone manufacturers keep missing for me is Internal Memory! I was a happy Galaxy S3 owner with 32GB of internal storage, but the S4 and S5 went with 16GB. I jumped to a Nexus 5 (with 32GB internal) last year and the LG G3 (32Gb internal + a microSD card slot) this year.

The Note is ok at 32GB but you really need to start a phone like that with 64GB internal if you're going to also sell it as premium device: i.e. kick-ass point-and-shoot camera with High Def video capture and a HD screen. People need to store that data somewhere. We don't all have unlimited data plans at LTE speeds.

You had a 32GB GS3? Which country? Not in the US I am sure.

Sprint had the 32gb Samsung Galaxy S3 about 3 months after the initial release. I got mine in October of 2012. Cost me an extra $50. Once Samsung released the S4 they dropped the general release to a 16gb on all models except for Verizon. Verizon carried the 32gb version but only online. it w My local Samsung in-store rep said they never got the stock in store which is probably why a lot of people switched to the Note.

Note Series= The best of Samsung (even if its very expensive, it worths the money)

How is the Note expensive? In the US it's 650 off contract like the 16GB iPhone. The carriers here choose to subsidize less of the phone though both cost the same on retail. The Note is not expensive.

The unlocked international version tends to be and of course if you buy direct from Samsung you pay more. But again it's unlocked
