Samsung unveiled its premium flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 4, at the recently held IFA event in Berlin, where the company suggested a vague October release for the device without actually mentioning its exact shipping or arrival date at the store shelves.
Nevertheless, a Dutch publication, Galaxy Club, has hinted that the next-gen Note would release on 10 October across major parts of Europe including the Netherlands.
The Note 4 is expected to release at a different time in the US than the European release. The European price is pegged at €799 which translates to $799 in the US.
The Note 4 seems a tad more expensive than its flagship counterparts including the iPhone 6 and Xperia Z3 which are priced around $650.
In other words, the next-gen Note price seems to match with the release price of the Note 3, while the on-contract pricing for the Note 4 seems a bit more reasonable at $299 on a two-year agreement.
Despite the initial peak in the Note 4 prices, Samsung is expected to quickly cut down the price after initial sales as was the case with the Note 3.
The Galaxy Note 4 ships in a premium metal frame with power-packed hardware configuration, which includes a 5.7in Quad HD display, Snapdragon 805 based quad-core processor (clocked at 2.7GHz), 16MP camera and runs Android 4.4.4 out of the box.
