Here is everything you need to know:

Improved Display

The most significant upgrade to the Note 4 is on the display. The screen size has remained the same at 5.7 inches, but the clarity and color improvements are very noticeable. The Note 4 features an industry-leading 2560×1440 resolution, as well as Samsung’s Super AMOLED display. The AMOLED display is the biggest differentiator for the Note 4, making its colors more vibrant than its competitors’.

Advanced S Pen

There is also a significant upgrade expected for the stylus pen. The new S Pen will bring twice the sensitivity of the previous version, making the writing experience feel even more natural. The improved S Pen also includes new writing options like calligraphy and fountain pen.

Improved Battery

The battery for the Note 4 has also undergone significant upgrades. In addition to installing a battery that lasts longer from charge to charge, the phone will also charge faster than ever before. Charging from zero to 50% will only take about 30 minutes, which is almost half the time of previous generations.

The Note 4 also includes a feature called Ultra Power Saving Mode, which can be turned on to preserve battery life by reducing the display’s color scheme to grayscale.

Although its release will happen more quietly than the iPhone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is sure to be a hit. Make sure you prepare by trading in your old smartphone at and for a limited time lock your trade-in quote with a 10% bonus value with promo code SAMSUNG10.
