Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge & Gear VR Introduced today
Sep 3, 2014 11:49 AM –
Today Samsung introduced the next generation Galaxy Note 4 phone/tablet hybrid with improved S Pen; along with Galaxy Note Edge with display that curves along one side and Gear VR which is a virtual reality headset accessory powered by the Note 4.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has the same size 5.7-inch screen but improved 2K resolution (2560×1440). The rear-facing camera is bumped to 16 megapixels and the front, too, at 3.7 megapixels. There is a heart rate sensor on back like the Galaxy S5. The backing has the soft touch yet the stitching has been removed in comparison to it’s predecessor plus it has an all metal band on sides for a more premium feel than previous plastic designs. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is virtually the same device with the exception of the screen curves around one edge- allowing for quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality independent of the main screen.
The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in “Charcoal Black,” “Frost White,” “Bronze Gold,” and “Blossom Pink” in global markets starting in October and the Galaxy Note Edge will be available in “Charcoal Black” and “Frost White” in select markets through Samsung’s retail channels, e-commerce and carriers later this year.
