Samsung’s public relations arm, SamsungTomorrow, have posted the very first unboxing video of the Galaxy Note 4 phabet. The video is a little over two minutes long, in Korean but subtitled in English and it’s easy to follow. The packaging used looks like a retail demo box rather than the customer boxes and contains a spare battery and S-Pen tips, which previous models sold in the UK didn’t include. You also get a USB charger and cable, earphones and of course the device, which in the case of this video is the N910S model and has the quad core 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. The Note 4 is also available with Samsung’s very own Exynos 5433 processor, which combines a high performance 1.9 GHz quad core processor with a high efficiency 1.3 GHz quad core processor. All models have 3 GB of RAM, at least 16 GB of storage, a MicroSD card, an optically stabilised 16 MP rear camera and a replaceable 3,220 mAh battery. Check out the video below:
The Note 4 has been receiving a lot of press recently and I’m sure Samsung appreciate the attention. It is the most powerful device currently available (or just about to be!) from carriers and operators; there are more powerful handsets available but they’re harder to come by. I know that many of our readers and a few of our writers are looking forward to the device being released. The Note 4 is commercially available in South Korea but you’ll have to wait until October for most other markets. The Note 4 will be joined by the distinctive Note Edge, which has similar internals but a screen that curves over the right hand side with additional space and utility for notifications and buttons. Prices are going to be high, however: unlocked prices are approaching $1,000 or $300 on a two year contract. This compares with under $200 for an unlocked Moto G. Of course, you are getting more with the Note 4.
We’re waiting to see the inevitable, “will it bend” video and I’m sure a whole raft of box opening clips from around the world as the device hits the retail scene. A question to ask our readers, then: what are you most interested in? Have you preordered a Note 4 or are you going to take your chances when it is ready for sale?
