Samsung’s fourth-generation Galaxy Note has gone on pre-order today ahead of its retail debut on October 10th, setting up a phablet showdown with the just-released iPhone 6.
Available from all the usual suspects and big-hitter networks, the Note 4 packs a 5.7-inch Quad HD SuperAMOLED screen that’s 0.2-inches larger than the iPhone 6 Plus Retina HD number and an improved version of the Note range’s trademark S-Pen stylus.
Unlike Apple’s first stab at a phablet, though, Samsung's contender allows users to have multiple windows open simultaneously for the kind of split-screen multi-tasking that was supposed to be a feature of iOS 8 for iPads but is sadly lacking. For now, anyway.
A 16-megapixel camera with Smart OIS (optical image stabiliser) technology and a 3.7-megapixel front-facer for selfies are on board too, as well as Android KitKat out of the box and 32GB of internal storage.
And as is now de-rigeur on top-end smartphones, it seems, biometric fingerprint security technology is present and correct, as is an Ultra Power Saving Mode for eking out your battery life.
