Samsung Electronics today announced the expansion of its flagship Galaxy Note series with the new Galaxy Note 4, which will be available to customers across the region for pre-booking beginning today. Blending an evolved S Pen with a superior viewing experience, the Galaxy Note 4 provides users with the most unique and powerful mobile experience on the market.
Alongside the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung announced the Samsung Gear S, the next generation of smart wearable device that expands the smartphone experience to the wrist. Delivering an up-to-date smart wearable experience with 3G connectivity and wearable optimized features to meet the evolving needs of consumers, the Gear S has been designed with an elegant, curved Super AMOLED display and flexible band, which offers a new, powerful wearable experience, giving consumers the freedom to live their life on the go.
“The Galaxy Note series ushered in a new wave of innovation within the technology industry. Its large screen size and distinctive S Pen technology launched a new standard in smartphone culture which has been warmly embraced by our regional consumers,” said Hayssam Yassine, Head of Telecommunications Group at Samsung Gulf Electronics. “The new Galaxy Note 4 provides an unbeatable Note experience by combining all the latest technology that users expect from the Galaxy series.”
Speaking on the Gear S, Yassine went on to add, “With the wearable segment set to grow, Samsung continues to lead across the category through progressive innovation. Designed to enable customers to stay connected anywhere, anytime, we expect the device to be a hit with the region’s consumers who have a strong reputation for being early adopters.”
The Galaxy Note 4 embraces Samsung’s heritage of an unrivaled 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.
Due to its large screen, the refined Multi Window feature is able to maximize the user’s experience providing them with the key to easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with 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 Stabilizer that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. In addition, a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera with f 1.9 offers a default 90 degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle so users can take the best group shots with friends.
The Galaxy Note 4‘s wide selection of enhanced essential features enable users to get even more from their mobile device. With the Fast Charging feature and Ultra Power Saving Mode, the Galaxy Note 4 charges faster and ensures that users don’t run out of power when they 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 users to isolate and listen to specific voices in a group conversation.
The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data and the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device. Making everyday tasks much faster and easier, the Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen has been specifically evolved to serve as the primary tool that users go to for common, everyday mobile device 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, Smart Select, Image Clip and Screen Write, that allows users to create and collect content with ease. A new Smart Select feature enables users to easily piece together content from different origins, and share it with ease.
The Galaxy Note 4 also provides users with a choice of multiple, seamless note-taking methods integrated with Samsung’s S Note application that allows everyday tasks to get done faster and more easily. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Photo 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 an S Note. They can also further unleash their creativity by jotting down their thoughts quickly with Voice Memo.
The Galaxy Note 4 introduces a new sleek and stylish Galaxy design language. The device features a premium metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the device 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 offers a superior grip and enhanced durability.
The Galaxy Note 4 LTE (32GB) comes in Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold, and Blossom Pink colors and is now available for pre-order for AED 2,799, while the Gear S will be available across leading retail outlets in UAE for AED 1,299 from mid-October.
