Amazon starts selling unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in the US

There’s exactly a week left for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to reach the US and if you can’t wait for so long, you could consider buying the phablet off retailer Amazon right away. The device has been listed at around $850 and it’s being offered unlocked and SIM-free.

Now, before you get excited, we’d like to point out that this Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on Amazon comes without warranty and that’s clearly mentioned in the description. What’s more, US buyers will officially receive the LTE model with a quad core Snapdragon 805 processor, but the one being offered through the e-commerce website is the international version and it packs an Exynos 5433 chip.

Performance-wise, you aren’t likely to see much of a difference, but if you depend on 4G LTE data speeds, we’d recommend staying away from this model as it only supports HSPA+ networks in the US. On the upside, the chipset is 64-bit ready should get a good performance bump with Android L.
