Following the tradition of offering the Developer Edition models of its flagship smartphones through Verizon in the US, Samsung has revealed that the Galaxy Note 4 too will be getting the same treatment soon. The handset has been listed on the company’s US website with a price tag that reads $662.53.
This of course will be a no-contract deal, and the phone will likely not feature support for any other carrier’s network. What makes a Developer Edition device special for developers is the fact that such handsets feature unlockable bootloaders, making many otherwise-complicated tasks easier for them.
Unveiled in September, the S Pen-equipped Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one extremely powerful smartphone. This is evident through the fact that it houses a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display bearing a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Moreover, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset which kicks in a 2.7GHz quad core processor.
This phone’s rear comes fitted with a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization, while its front houses a 3.7MP selfie unit. Android 4.4 KitKat is its preferred OS, but Samsung’s familiar user interface makes its presence felt on this device along with a ton of optimizations meant to take advantage of the S Pen stylus this handset comes bundled with.
Here’s a short look at the specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4:
– Display: 5.7-inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel Super AMOLED panel
