Samsung Electronics unveiled its new Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge phablet (phone-tablet) devices in Berlin at the Samsung Unpacked Episode 2 event Sept 3, 2014. Offering a new dimension to Samsung’s unique Note culture, the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge strengthen Samsung’s category leadership with the most progressive mobile devices on the market, says Samsung.

The new Galaxy Note Series announcement comes just a few days before Apple’s expected announcement of the rumored “iPhone 6L” and “iPhone Air” with 5.5″ and 4.7″ screens, respectively. These new, larger display iPhones are expected to compete with the very popular larger smartphones including Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and the HTC One.

Highlights of the Galaxy Note 4:

    • premium metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the device display
    • 2.5D glass screen, inherited from the Galaxy S3, offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device’s rich viewing experience
    • soft-textured leather-like back cover provides incredible comfort that makes it easy to control with one hand
    • 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 tremendous viewing experience
    • 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabilizer that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings
    • 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera with f1.9 offers a default 90 degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle so users can take the best group shots with friends
    • improved Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data and the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device
    • 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
    • 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 allow users to create and collect content with ease
    • innovative Snap Note feature allows users to take a picture of their notes on a paper or a classroom board, and then quickly and easily convert to the S Note
    • available in “Charcoal Black,” “Frost White,” “Bronze Gold,” and “Blossom Pink” in global markets starting in October
