Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Taking Pre-Orders in the U.K.

September 17, 2014 - Written By Cory McNutt

The highly anticipated announcement of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has come and gone and all we are left wanting is the actual sale of the device.  It looks like the U.K. is one-step closer to getting the new phablet when the Clove Technology website started taking pre-orders as it nears the Galaxy Note 4’s October launch. As for the non-VAT pricing goes, we are looking at £479.17, which translates to about $780…while expensive, it falls in line with the Note 3’s pricing of $799.  According to Clove, the actual delivery date should be October 13, which coincides with the launch date for Europe.  Clove is offering the Galaxy Note 4 up in three of the four colors for now – Charcoal Black, Frost White and Bronze Gold…it looks like the pink or rose colored device is not being offered right away.

The Galaxy Note 4 starts with a new design that features a solid metal frame that is sculptured at the corners for added protection if dropped.  It holds a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display and then adds the most advanced processor that Qualcomm has available, the Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.7GHz.  This is backed by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot to add additional storage to hold all of your pictures, videos and music library.  The camera was bumped up from 13MP to 16MP, but more importantly, they added Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and for the front-facing camera (ffc), Samsung increased it to 3.7MP and made it a wide-angle lens so you can squeeze more people into your selfie shots or video chats.

As always, Samsung improved the S-Pen experience by doubling its sensitivity so you can have the closest ‘writing on paper’ experience you could possibly ask.  Just as always, the software was upgraded to make using the S-Pen even more productive and intuitive.  Using the S-Pen on the Note 4 is like using a mouse on a PC – it is just so much more rewarding than using your finger. Please hook up with us on our Google+ Page and let us know if you will be pre-ordering your Galaxy Note 4 as soon as possible and if you are a previous Note user…as always, we would love to hear from you.
