Features And Specifications
Sporting the the same as its predecessor Note 3, it is rather different in many respects. With a metallic finish around the edges, it’ll feel more premium to the touch, and overall , it looks like the recently-announced Galaxy Alpha. The Note 4 measures 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5mm and weighs about 176 grams.
The Samsung’s Note must offer pro-facilities such as removable battery and expandable memory, and with a unibody finish akin to the HTC One M8 was never been in the card, but for those who’ve bored with the plastic-finish, the Note 4’s outer shell offers a touch of finesse.
Similarities are there in the last year’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note, and it’s no surprise that the Galaxy Note 4’s display is also a bit of a bump. The 5.7-inch panel – notably posing with the same size of the Note 3’s – is somewhat a great deal sharper than that of its predecessor.
The QHD Super-AMOLED display clocks in a resolution of 2560 x 1440, which add up to an eye watering pixel density of 515ppi. Although, the screen is more of protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 (sratch resistant).
Depends on your country and carrier, you’ll either get a 2.7GHz quad-core processor or a 1.9 GHz octa-core chip, but both models will be paired with 3GB of RAM.
The international variant of the phablet lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with quad-core 2.5GHz Krait 450 CPU, Adreno 420 GPU. The Note 4 will launch with a 32GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded up to 64GB via microSD card.

The Note 4 device packs a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with Smart Optical Image Stabilization. According to Samsung, this Smart OIS will “counter-balance camera shake and automatically extend exposure time in dark settings.” The camera on it is equipped with a Sony IMX240 camera sensor with optical image stabilization and dual-LED flash. The module is the same as that of the one on the Galaxy S5 LTE-A.
Notably, the rear-facing camera is capable of capturing 4K UHD videos at 30fps. The front-facing is however, is a surprisingly impressive 3.7MP, offering with f1.9 and up to 120 degree wide-angle shots. The Galaxy Note 4 front camera is capable of shooting images and videos in WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) – with its massive screen and solid front shooter – is definitely made for selfies.
The S Pen is the main feature that Samsung has redesigned the S Pen stylus that now offers better grip. The software, which accompanies the S Pen – S Note, Multi-window has been enhanced too.

The company’s branded overlay has been cleaned up, with a fresher interface and less clunky functionality, while also introducing Dynamic Lock Screens. Which will make your lock screen feel more alive and animated, with wallpapers changing based on location and Weather patterns, and of course this isn’t a game-changer by any means, but it’s still a pleasent addition to the fold.
There’s S Health 3.5, Download Booster, improved multi-window multitasking, and overall, the experience should feel much more fluid.
