Move over Galaxy Note 3, because the Next Big Thing is already here. Samsung on Wednesday officially unveiled its next big flagship phone, and it just about improves on everything we loved about the Note 3. The design is better, the S Pen technology has been enhanced, and the screen is absolutely stunning, which is something we can always rely on with Samsung devices.
While the Note 4 might not immediately appear like a major leap over the Note 3, just check out these specs: a 5.7-inch Quad HD display (2560×1440), 16-megapixel camera (3.7-megapixel front-facing), Android 4.4.4., 3220mAh battery, 32GB of expandable storage, 3GB of RAM and a quad-core (or octa-core) processor. But there are many others reasons why the Note 4 trumps last year’s big phone champion, which you can read all about in our hands-on.
The Note 4 is coming to all of the top four carriers here in the U.S., along with other markets worldwide, so you’ll have every opportunity between now and October to sell your Note 3 to save up for the new one. For now, check out the specs side-by-side to help further encourage your lust for Samsung’s new flagship. Will this be the phone that winds up in your pocket this fall?
