Competition is definitely is great thing, especially for us consumers. Samsung announced today that the Galaxy Note 4 will launch in over 140 countries by the end of October. The Note 4 was originally scheduled to release in South Korea sometimes in October. But due to how good the iPhone 6 is doing, Samsung wanted to get things going and make sure their phablet is available as soon as possible. They now moved the release to September 26.
“As the originator of the Note category, Samsung takes immense pride and responsibility”
Samsung is definitely determined to make the Note 4 a success. They estimate to ship 15 million units in the first 30 days – a very ambitious goal if you ask me. To attempt achieving it, Samsung will be selling its phablet for around $920 in its home country which $100 cheaper than what the Note 3 ($1,025) sold for last year. I believe the U.S. prices will remain in the vicinity of $799 price tag.
In term of specs, the Galaxy Note 4 is way ahead of the iPhone 6. It packs a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera, 3.7MP front camera and Android KitKat.
Competition will be fierce between Samsung and Apple. Do you guys think that the Note 4 has what it takes to beat the iPhone 6 Plus?
