Samsung have launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the next successor in their flagship phablet range.
One of the major changes is that it has real metal included on the edges, giving it a premium feel.
The phone will come with Android 4.4 KitKat out the box as expected with a pretty much guaranteed update to Android L.
The 515 ppi screen is a gigantic 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display (2,560 x 1,440) which matches the resolution of the 0.2 inch smaller screen of the LG G3.
Samsung have focused on the hardware this time by upping its specs from within. It now has a wide-angle selfie mode with its front facing 3.7 megapixel camera and the rear 16 megapixel camera with the newly introduced optical image stabilization (ois).
The smartphone will have 3GB of RAM which is now the flagship standard, very useful for multi tasking and a new processor. One will have the Snapdragon 805 at 2.7 GHz and another variation with 1.9 GHz as an octa-core version.
It maintains the large battery of 3,300MAh as well as the removable battery and expandable storage which gives it an edge over its rivals.
Initially it will be available in White, gold, black and pink.
Samsung have introduced the heart-rate sensor like the S5 as well as the fingerprint scanner. I am not a massive fan of these two features but anything to add value to the self-made beast of a device.
It has various new multitasking features such as the drag and resizing of windows. This truly is the Giga-Phone of the year.
