Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pre-orders begin September 19

If you aren’t planning on picking up the new iPhone 6, Samsung will begin taking pre-orders for the highly-anticipated release of the Galaxy Note 4, the device will be available in the U.S. beginning October 17, with pre-orders beginning tomorrow.

“Samsung created the large screen smartphone category with the Galaxy Note and are on our fourth generation, a category others are just entering,” said Gregory Lee, president and CEO of Samsung Telecommunications America and Samsung Electronics North America Headquarters. “The Galaxy Note 4 delivers a refined Note experience, and the latest technology that consumers want in their smartphone.”

The Galaxy Note 4 delivers unrivaled smartphone experiences including a brilliant display, advanced photo technology for front and rear camera, battery improvements, and S Pen enhancements. The Galaxy Note 4 enables users to get even more from their mobile device every day. The extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display creates stunning viewing experiences designed to enhance what users see.

The Galaxy Note 4 features advanced front and rear cameras for brighter, clearer images. The 16 megapixel rear-facing camera features an Optical Image Stabilizer, crisper images and advanced zoom technology. In addition, the device includes a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera that captures shots easier than ever before and, with a wider angle, more people can be included in the picture. Both the front and rear-facing cameras have improved sensors for better, brighter photos in low light.

With Adaptive Fast Charging1, the Galaxy Note 4 can go from no battery to 50 percent in about 30 minutes. The device is also equipped with Ultra Power Saving Mode, which offers standby time up to 24 hours on only 10 percent of battery life, allowing access to select applications, so that users have power when they need it most.

Samsung continues to refine the S Pen experience with easier interactions through shortcuts to make everyday tasks faster and easier. With the evolved S Pen, writing is more natural, allowing users to easily handwrite e-mails and texts, capture and edit meeting notes and post handwritten notes to their homescreen. The S Pen also offers the ease and precision of a computer mouse, making it simpler to select and move content, resize windows, and drag and drop between apps.

With the Galaxy Note 4’s 5.7-inch screen, the Multi Window feature has evolved for easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how to access applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and can easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with an intuitive swipe.

The Galaxy Note 4 features a new sleek design with a premium metal frame and Samsung’s signature removable back cover for easy access to the removable battery and microSD card slot. The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in Charcoal Black and Frost White. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular will carry the Galaxy Note 4. Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy, as well as Amazon, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club, Target, Walmart will also carry the Galaxy Note 4.
