Samsung Canada announced today that the new Galaxy Note 4, which includes the newly reimagined S-Pen, will launch on October 24 in Charcoal Black and Frost White with all major Canadian carriers and retailers.
The Galaxy Note 4 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display, 16 megapixel rear-facing camera with Smart Optical Image Stabilizer, 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera, a metal frame, soft textured body, and features a range of other upgrades from the previous model. Samsung is also touting the evolution of the S Pen, which they say can now “add emotion, humour, clarity and style to… everyday tasks.”
The Galaxy Note 4’s front-facing camera also notably offers an f1.9 aperture to capture brighter photos, a default 90-degree shooting angle, and can shoot up to 120 degrees for wider pictures.
“Samsung Electronics pioneered the large-screen smartphone category through the introduction of the GALAXY Note series in 2011, and we remain the industry leader in this category,” said Paul Brannen, executive vice president, Mobile Solutions, Samsung Canada. “The new GALAXY Note 4 introduces the most refined Note experience to-date by featuring innovative technology including the enhanced S Pen™ which allows Canadians to add more of themselves to their mobile experience.”
Here is a breakdown of some of the other new features:
- Add emotion with the S Pen: With the reimagined S Pen featuring 2,048 touch pressure points, writing is more natural, allowing users to easily handwrite e-mails and texts, capture and edit meeting notes as well as add handwritten messages to their photos. Improvements to the S Pen mean it works with comfort and precision that is now akin to a computer mouse, making it easier to select and move information, resize windows, and drag and drop between different apps.
- Add clarity to your content: Samsung continues to refine the S Pen experience with a more user-friendly Air Command functionality along with other intuitive features such as Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select allowing you to create and collect content.
- Add your own style: The GALAXY Note 4 offers multiple, seamless note-taking methods integrated with the S Note application. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Snap Note feature allows you to take a picture of notes on a paper or a whiteboard, and then quickly and easily convert to an S Note.
- Power-Up Fast and Stay Powered: Never miss that important call or text again. With the GALAXY Note 4’s Fast Charging ability, you can recharge quicker than ever. In addition, the Ultra Power Saving Mode helps to maximize battery life, even at 10% charge, you can still receive calls and texts for up to 24 hours. (With Ultra Power Saving Mode, battery life will vary depending on power, applications settings and other factors. The maximum capacity of the battery will decrease with time and use. )
- Keep the conversation going: Multiple microphones and an improved speaker phone for better noise cancellation when speaking in loud environments will help Canadians keep in touch. A built-in voice recorder offers eight different directional voice tags and a selective playback capability that allows users to isolate and listen to specific voices in a group conversation.
- Stay more protected: The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner to secure personal data and a UV sensor.
