Samsung launches GALAXY Note 4

14 Oct 2014

Samsung has launched the GALAXY Note 4 in New Zealand overnight, their latest smartphone offering aimed at designers and creative types.

Samsung wants to provide users with a unique, creative mobile experience, making a difference to how people work and play on their phones.

“We’ve been eagerly awaiting the global release of the Note 4,” says Stefan Lecchi, Head of Telecommunications for Samsung New Zealand. “We’re  looking forward to seeing New Zealanders embrace a phone that unleashes their creativity – whether that’s shooting a stunning view of the ocean as the sun rises first in the world, or penning a note with the amazing new S-Pen in a variety of calligraphic styles. The Note 4 is set to change the way we communicate, yet again.”

The Note 4 boasts a 5.7-inchQuad HD (2560x1440) Super AMOLED display, producing clear and vivid images with deep contrast, great viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second.

Due to its large screen, the refined Multi Window feature is able to maximise the user’s experience providing them with the key to easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with one intuitive swipe.

The S Pen aims to make everyday tasks much easier, and has been designed to be used as the everyday tool that users go to for common mobile device use. The new S Pen offers a natural brush effect that closely emulates writing on paper with a fountain or calligraphy pen.

The GALAXY Note 4 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 device is equipped with a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabiliser and a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera.

Samsung is all about design and clever thinking – with that at our heart we explore every opportunity to enable consumers to do more of what they love, more easily, productively and more creatively”, says Mike Cornwell, Marketing Director for Samsung New Zealand.

The GALAXY Note 4 also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data and the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device.

The Samsung GALAXY Note 4 will be available in-store from telecommunications companies and selected retailers from October 17, 2014.
