Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date, news, specs [updated]

Loie Favre

Each release of a Galaxy Note device has been a major event for Samsung, almost as important as the Galaxy S flagship series. The Note family has a lot of fans, especially because of its attractive format and useful S Pen stylus. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the next in the gamut and has finally been revealed at IFA 2014, check out our hands-on Galaxy Note 4 review or read on for more details below. Update: More information about the Galaxy Note 4 release in the US is now known: all major US carriers will get it. Plus, we now have a suggested market price. Read on to find out.

Galaxy Note 4 release date and price

The Galaxy Note 4 will hit the market sometime in October 2014, but we'll have to wait a little longer for full details to emerge, including specific local market prices. We asked and begged and twisted arms all day but we're still no closer to knowing how much the Note 4 is officially going to cost you in the US, UK or Europe. Remember that we did see a leak previously of the full Galaxy Note 4 specs and price though. If you do currency conversions you'll come out at around 800 USD, 500 GBP or 600 EUR, but we'd take a stab at a roughly 600 - 700 USD price tag when all is said and done. 

Update: New information about the US release date has surfaced. The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in the US with all four major carriers, those being Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. US Cellular will also make the device available to its customers. We've also heard news of a suggested Galaxy Note 4 retail price, this only being in Euros for now. The Note 4 will sell for 699 Euros and will be released sometime in October.

    Such rumours come everytime but in the end what we get is some useless stuff with gimmicky features and an ugly phone. Makes me feel like Samsung has a thinking that people will accept whatever it throws out in the market.

    • Andre Sinaga 3 months ago Link

      yeah haha...Samsung is only thinking about their money, not their users...release a phone every year with a gimmicky feature that you can even download by yourself on PS...

      never like samsung product, always overpriced in my eyes....not worth compared to LG, Sony, HTC, etc....

    //The YOUM display has been talked about for some years now, and we might finally see this flexible display on the Galaxy S4, marking it’s commercial debut. T//

    Should be corrected as Note 4, not S4

    When will samsung think of making a phone using solar energy like the watches we have today never fail no worries anymore of battery flat
    This is going to be a big time selling piece of hardware instead of trying to upgrade the rams and storage then upgrade the battery...why not just upgrade the battery with a solar panel strong enough to charge the battery or even better use solar when there is sunlight and use the battery in the idea!...hoping something like that is possible soon..

      This will cause a serious heating issue which has not been overcome yet on current generation smartphones.

    I love my Note 3 and it's versatility. Battery life is fantastic as I can get through a whole day without fear. And the stylus on my Note 3 - pretty damned slick. Did it take me awhile to get used to the size (i had come from the S3 which was not exactly a petite phone) - sure. But it was worth it. This whole thing about "plastic" phones being low-quality is BS. When you have a phone this large - you won't be wanting to carry a metal casing as it will be much heavier in comparison to the Samsung.

    I've had phones from other manufacturers but Samsung phones (and their beautiful displays) have been the best.

    lol - yes, i realize i sound like a fanboy. I'm not. Just telling you my experiences w/Samsung mobile devices.

    I love the Note 3 it is the most versatile and sturdy phone I have owned. More battery life.. sure, while it is great on Note 3 an improvement would be welcome. Faster processor, absolutely, again Note 3 is great but I would jump on an improvement. Plastic/Metal., I'll take the plastic, it is lighter and more resilient. I love the stylus it is so damn useful. Don't use it a lot but when I need it, it is there... Bottom line, keep the same design... and give me a better camera and better battery life and a bit faster processor and I will pay full boat. BTW, my daughter uses my Note 2 and loves it.

    Wow. The Note 4 looks so ugly next to the "leaked" device with the three-sided display.
