The main specs are listed below..

  • 2.7 GHz Snapdragon processor (there is also an Exynos Octa-Core version for non-LTE countries)
  • 3GB RAM
  • 5.7″ Quad HD Super AMOLED screen (2560 x 1440)
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 16 megapixel rear camera with smart OIS
  • 3.7 megapixel front camera with f1.9 and wide selfie mode
  • S pen with new features like smart select and 2048 pressure levels
  • Ultra power saving mode
  • Fast charging – 0% to 50% in about 30 minutes
  • 3220mAh battery (20mAh more than the Note 3)
  • S health with heart rate sensor on the back
  • 32GB internal memory, expandable to 64GB via micro SD card slot
  • Finger print scanner
  • 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5 mm size with 176g weight
  • 4 colours – black, white, gold and pink

So very similar to all the leaks, although it was expected to have 4GB RAM. The battery doesn’t sound like much of an increase especially with a Quad HD screen but Samsung say it has a 7.5% better battery life.

Three, EE and Phones 4u have all mailed us to confirm that they’re taking the device.

The Note 4 features the usual Note range highlights, with Multi Window and Air Commands. However, there’svalso new features like Smart Select which allows you to create groups of pictures from a variety of sources and easily add them to an email or a social network. The S Pen can also be used as a mouse allowing you to select multiple pictures at once.

The voice recorder has been updated with 3 extra microphones to allow extra modes, such as meeting mode which can track 8 different voices and allows you to replay each voice one at a time. It also has an “interview mode” which cancels out ambient background noise.

There is no exact word on pricing or release date other than just October, but stay tuned to Coolsmartphone and we will update you as soon as we know.
