Samsung Singapore today announced the expansion of its flagship Galaxy Note series with the new Galaxy Note 4 4G+
Also announced was the Galaxy Note Edge 4G+ with a unique curved Edge screen providing quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality – even when the cover is closed – all with the swipe of a thumb
“The Galaxy Note series heralded a new standard in smartphone technology when Samsung brought the heritage of the pen and notepad into the digital world with the iconic S Pen,” said Eugene Goh, Vice President, IT & Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore. “The new Galaxy Note 4 4G+ introduces the most refined Note experience to date by combining the latest technologies and design architecture that users have come to expect from Samsung.”
Powerful Performance that Matters the Most to You
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+’s extraordinary 5.7″ Quad HD SUPER AMOLED Display (2560 x 1440) 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.
Due to its large screen, the refined Intuitive Multi Window feature is able to maximise the user’s experience, providing them with the key to easier multitasking. Users can choose how they access selected applications with Full, Split or Pop Up View, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with one intuitive swipe.
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+ also sports an advanced camera that is able to reproduce brighter and clearer images. The device is equipped with a 16 megapixel rear camera featuring a Smart OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in low light settings. In addition, a 3.7 megapixel front camera with f1.9 offers a default 90° shooting angle and up to 120° wide angle so users can take the best Selfie or Wefie shots.
Equipped with 4G+ LTE Cat 6 connectivity, the Galaxy Note 4 4G+ brings fast browsing and speedy content download at speeds of up to 300Mbps, three times that of traditional LTE Cat 3 support. Users can now enjoy the quickest access to high quality content.
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+ supports VoLTE1, giving you a crystal clear voice call experience. You can enjoy seamless LTE roaming in countries such as China, Australia and India with LTE TDD network support.
The wide selection of enhanced essential features of the Galaxy Note 4 4G+ enables users to get even more from their mobile device. With the Fast Charging feature and Ultra Power Saving Mode, the Galaxy Note 4 4G+ charges from 0 to 50 per cent battery level in 30 minutes2 and ensures that users do not run out of power when they need it most by extending the remaining 10 per cent battery life with up to 36 hours worth of standby time3.
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+ 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 4G+ also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner to secure personal data.
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+ is your fitness companion with Enhanced S Health4 app that leverages various smart sensors (pedometer, barometer and heart rate sensor4), which helps users to monitor, manage and challenge their workout routines. It is also the world’s first mobile device to have an in-built UV sensor that helps you gauge the level of UV exposure.
S Pen and S Note for Everyday Tasks
Making everyday tasks much faster and easier, the Galaxy Note 4 4G+’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 double the pressure sensitivity at 2048 levels, 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, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select that allows users to create and collect content with ease. A new Smart Select feature enables users to easily collect content from different origins, and share it for personal reasons5 with ease.
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+ 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 handwritten notes on a paper or whiteboard, and then quickly and easily convert to an S Note for further editing. They can also further unleash their creativity by jotting down their thoughts quickly with Voice Memo.
Premium Yet Functional Design
The Galaxy Note 4 4G+ 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 4G+’s 2.5D glass screen offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device’s rich viewing experience. A soft and 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.
