When Samsung introduced company’s new Galaxy Note 4 phablet at this year’s IFA event, everyone automatically assumed the device will be priced as the Note 3 was priced at launch. It seems that might not be the case though. Some screenshots leaked and were allegedly pulled from SK Telecom and LG U+’s websites. These screenshots show the same low factory prices coming at 957,000 Won, why should we consider this to be good news? Well, previous Note devices were all priced above 1 million Won, if we talk about the factory prices of Note devices. Presuming this report is accurate and this is indeed Note 4’s factory price, that should mean the device will have a somewhat lower price than its predecessor (at launch). Keep in mind that this doesn’t have to mean absolutely anything for consumers outside of Korea though. 957,000 Won is approximately $917, so that’s extremely high as it is. My guess is that Samsung will keep its pricing structure and that we won’t see Note 4 being any cheaper than it was thus far.
Galaxy Note 4 is featuring a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage (expandable via MicroSD card up to 128GB). This phablet comes in 2 different processor versions. One is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz which comes with Adreno 420 GPU, the other one comes with Samsung’s very own Exynos 5433 octa-core chip and Mali-T760 GPU. 16-megapixel camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) can be found at the back of the device while there’s a 3.7-megapixel shooter up front. 3,220mAh battery can be found on the inside and the device comes with Android 4.4.4 KitKat pre-installed with Samsung’s Revolving UX on top of it. S Pen stylus is also part of the package as well as a special suite of software additions that go with the Note series.
Do you think Samsung will keep its pricing structure or might we see a bit lower price for the Galaxy Note 4? As I mentioned earlier, I don’t think this will mean lower price, especially not for international customers, but maybe some of you disagree with that.
