Today is when the iPhone 6 Plus is supposed to reach consumers and Samsung has surprisingly not chosen this to be the day on which it release the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Apple smartphone’s biggest competitor. While the device in question will arrive in the UK on October 10, it will make its way into the US later on October 17 only.
Pre-orders for the 2K display-bearing phablet are set to commence sometime later today in both the territories. In the US, almost all major carriers will be offering the device but only AT&T and T-Mobile have revealed details about the price.
The blue carrier will be offering the Galaxy Note 4 for $299.99 with a two-year agreement, and at $825.99 without one. T-Mobile on the other hand, will just ask for monthly payments of $31.24 over two years.
Coming to the UK, the iPhone 6 Plus rival’s release here will be foreseen by Three, Carphone Warehouse, Clove and other outlets. And while these will begin taking pre-orders on September 26, normal retail stores will begin that process today itself.
Here’s a good look at the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4:
– Display: 5.7 inch Super AMOLED, 2560 x 1440 pixels
