Samsung Note 4 Is More of A Big Thing
Samsung today announced the Galaxy Note 4, the latest version of its flagship productivity phone. The Note 4 carries over a lot of the design ideas set forth in last year's Note 3, though it makes a number of refinements. The phone features a 5.7-inch quad-HD display with 2560 x 1440 pixels. Samsung stuck with its Super AMOLED technology for the screen. According to Samsung, the larger, higher-resolution screen enhances the phone's multitasking capabilities, with more content visible in each window. The Note 4 has two processor variants. The U.S. variant will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with four cores at 2.7GHz each. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, with support for microSD cards up to 64GB. The Note 4 ups the ante with the camera, which captures 16-megapixels and includes optical image stabilization, HDR, and ultra HD video capture. The user-facing camera jumps up to 3.7 megapixels and has a wide aperture of f/1.9. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat and comes with he latest version of Samsung's TouchWiz user interface, which includes S Health, S Voice, and other apps/services common to Samsung phone. The S Pen stylus has been refined to provide a more natural feel to the on-screen writing behavior, and it carries over the tools and functions from the Note 3, such as Air Command, Image Clip, and Smart Select. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be sold by all four major U.S. carriers and should be available in the months ahead.
