SAMSUNG INTRODUCES THE GALAXY NOTE 4 AND SHOWCASES NEXT GENERATION DISPLAY WITH GALAXY NOTE EDGE

 Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge strengthen Samsung’s unique Note range

London UK – 3 September, 2014 – Samsung Electronics today announced the expansion of its flagship Galaxy Note series with the new Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. Combining the latest S Pen with a superior viewing experience, the Galaxy Note 4 provides the most unique and powerful mobile experience on the market.

“With its larger screen size and iconic S Pen technology, the Galaxy Note series heralded extraordinary innovation within the industry, bringing the age-old tradition of a notepad and pen into the digital world,” said Ines van Gennip, Marketing Director, IT & Mobile Division, Samsung UK & Ireland. “The new Galaxy Note 4 introduces the most refined Note experience to-date, combining all the latest technology from the Galaxy series to create a truly unique mobile experience for our customers, allowing them to do everyday tasks quickly, precisely and with greater ease, especially when out and about.”

Powerful Performance

The Galaxy Note 4 embraces Samsung’s heritage of an unrivalled Galaxy mobile experience. Its extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second, providing a terrific viewing experience.

With the device’s large screen, the refined Multi Window feature enables easier multi-tasking. You can choose how to access your applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen in one intuitive swipe.

The Galaxy Note 4 also sports an advanced camera system that is able to reproduce brighter and clearer images. The device is equipped with a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabiliser that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. In addition, a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera with f1.9 offers a default 90 degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle so you can take great group shots with friends.

The Galaxy Note 4‘s wide selection of enhanced essential features allow you to get even more from your mobile device. With the Fast Charging feature and Ultra Power Saving Mode, the Galaxy Note 4 charges faster and ensures you don’t run out of power when you need it most. The Galaxy Note 4 comes equipped with multiple microphones and an improved speaker phone for better noise cancellation when speaking in loud environments. A built-in Voice Recorder offers eight different directional voice tagging and a selective playback capability that allows you to isolate and listen to specific voices in a group conversation.

The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an enhanced Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data, as well as the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device.

S Pen and S Note for Everyday Tasks

Making everyday tasks much faster and easier, the Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen has been enhanced to serve as the primary tool for everyday mobile use. This new S Pen offers a much more authentic pen experience, with a more natural brush effect that perfectly emulates writing on paper with a fountain or calligraphy pen. The S Pen also introduces a more user-friendly Air Command functionality along with other intuitive features such as Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select that allows people to create and collect content with ease. Meanwhile, the new Smart Select feature enables you to easily piece together content from different places and share it with ease.

The Galaxy Note 4 also provides you with a choice of seamless note-taking methods with Samsung’s S Note application which allows you to get everyday tasks done faster and more easily. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Snap Note feature lets you take a picture of your notes on a paper or a classroom board, and then quickly and easily convert it to an S Note. You can also further unleash your creativity by jotting down your thoughts quickly with Voice Memo.

Premium Yet Functional Design

The Galaxy Note 4 introduces a new sleek and stylish Galaxy design. Featuring a premium metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the device’s display, the Galaxy Note 4’s 2.5D glass screen, inherited from the Galaxy S3, offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device’s rich viewing experience. A soft-textured back cover provides incredible comfort that makes it easy to control with one hand. The device not only looks beautiful, but also offers superior grip and enhanced durability.

Introducing Galaxy Note Edge

Samsung’s pursuit of innovation through best-in-class mobile technology and an enhanced user-experience has led to the debut of the innovative and unique Galaxy Note Edge. Taking the Galaxy Note experience to the next level, the Note Edge provides people with a new way to access information, engage with their mobile device, and express their personality and tastes. The Galaxy Note Edge’s unique curved Edge screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality – even when the cover is closed – all with the swipe of a thumb. You can also receive notifications directly on the Edge Screen while watching videos without disruption.

The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold, and Blossom Pink in global markets from 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. Samsung will announce UK availability in due course.
