On September 3, Samsung officially introduced the newest Galaxy Note phablet, the Galaxy Note 4 (and the Galaxy Note Edge). While it’s never been a secret that the handset would launch sometime in October, a finalized date hadn’t been circled on the calendar just yet. That has finally changed for anyone who is anticipating picking up this flagship handset this year.

Samsung has officially announced that pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 4 will begin on Friday, September 19, and that the handset will officially go on sale beginning October 17. From the press release:

Samsung created the large screen smartphone category with the Galaxy Note and are on our fourth generation, a category others are just entering,” said Gregory Lee, president and CEO of Samsung Telecommunications America and Samsung Electronics North America Headquarters. “The Galaxy Note 4 delivers a refined Note experience, and the latest technology that consumers want in their smartphone.

The Galaxy Note 4 features a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, with a 2.7GHz quad-core processor under the hood and a 16-megapixel camera on the back with optical image stabilization. It’s running Android 4.4.4 KitKat right out of the box, along with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz user interface. It has refinements and improvements to the S Pen accessory and a 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera. On September 15, it was reported that the Galaxy Note 4′s large display is the best used in any smartphone to date.

As expected, the national carriers have also chimed in, revealing their own Galaxy Note 4 plans. AT&T will have preorders starting September 19, and the device will go on sale October 17. The full retail price for the Galaxy Note 4 is $825.99, or $299 on a new, two-year contract. If you opt for AT&T’s Next 18, you’ll pay $0 down and $34.42 each month. Or, on AT&T Next 12, it’ll be $41.30 for 20 months.

Verizon’s preorders begin on September 19 as well. The device will cost $299.99 on a new, two-year agreement. The Big Red carrier has confirmed that Edge pricing will be available, but they haven’t divulged the necessary information just yet.

Finally, T-Mobile’s preorders will begin Wednesday, September 24. It’ll cost $0 up-front, and then $31.24 each month, for 24 months.

Do you plan on picking up a Galaxy Note 4?

    Stick that in your pipe and smoke it 6 plus 🚬📲

    • Big Joe

      guess what , 6 plus wish it has that kinda of technology packed in its case, sucks for fan boys, they’re buying a dual core ,1080 screen, 8mp rear camera, 1.2mp front, 1gb ram , Note 2 technology, haha. only thing they have is ios which is a splash copy of android OS. Note4 4k HD screen , Quad Core 3gb ram, 16mp rear camera, 3.1 front, expandable HD space, keep fooling yourself thinking its a better phone, your buying in for fashion buddy, real techie people knows Note 4 tops it. Bloatware, i know your excuse, but guess what android allows you to disable them, and if you decide to keep em, they have the ram to back it up. poor excuse, try deleting your passport,newstand,game center, stocks, and other etc app in the iphone without jailbreaking and voiding your warranty, your bloatware sounds like fun for 1gb ram to handle it. oh btw, Samsung built the A8 chip for apple, doh. i sense butthurt.

      • derp de derp

        I agree with you 100% but it’s not 4k it’s actually 2k QHD (is like 2.5k)= 2560 x 1440 4k = 4096 x 2160.

      • chris

        Agree wholeheartedly. Just ordered the Note 4

    • Richard Yarrell

      It’s always been pretty plain and simple for me since May 2011. Nothing beats SAMSUNG or the GALAXY NOTE PRODUCTS they are the GOLD STANDARD of the technology today nothing else matters.

      As usual for me I will be picking up the Galaxy Note 4 on day one of launch for T-Mobile and will be adding it to my already Galaxy Note 2, and current Note 3. I will also wait for the launch of the Galaxy Note Edge in November and purchase that day one as well.

      Looking to land the Galaxy Gear S Wrist Watch Communicator whenever that lands on T-Mobile and we will call this the ULTIMATE GALAXY FAMILY. Galaxy S3, Note 2, Note 3, Note 4, Note Edge, and Gear S.

      • squiddy20

        “and we will call this the ULTIMATE GALAXY FAMILY.” Sad that the only “family” you have are a bunch of inanimate objects… What a joke.

      • SGB101

        No note 1, or the origanal phablet Dell Streak. I’d be hunting eBay to have the compleat collection,as your almost there.

        Why would anyone get the 4 and the edge?

  • McLovin

    Wanted the Edge but if ZeroLemon doesn’t do a battery for it that’s a deal breaker. I’ll have to go with the generic Note 4. Absolutely NOT going with T-Mobile on my Note 4 purchase. They still haven’t come out with the 4.4 update for the Note 2. Will most likely go with AT&T on this one, sometime in December.

    • Jacob Portillo

      4.4 ont Tmobile came out already check for update on your phone, i have it downloaded OTA

  • TV

    What a timing for the pre-order, the same day the iPhone 6′s debut to the public.
    But I am sure, these will sell no matter what, but not to those who will be picking up the iPhone 6 Plus though.

  • jrpsf

    I will be pre ordering along with the 3 other people on my account. The edge looks amazing but I’m leery of any first generation device. I may choose the edge in 2 years when I’m ready for a new phone or if I go with Verizon’s more plan I can upgrade in a year. They will have worked out any issues with the first release by then.

  • Robairto

    one front speaker away from getting my note 3 upgrade money.

  • chuckh0308

    Yes, I plan to order one to replace my faithful old Note 2!

  • Vincenttmaxwell

    Love the article. But i didnt see anything about sprint carrier.

  • mash200

    My iPhone 6 (for my son) and 6Plus have been shipped by Apple. After reading Galaxy not 4 specs, we both decided to return them without even opening the boxes. IPhone 6 appears to be 2011 technology

    • Jake

      Appears? IS 2011 technology is more like it! :-). Welcome to the Next Big Thing!

  • Dan

    I just tried to pre-order the Note 4 on Verizon and it says ship date of October 23rd

  • Jake

    I’ve been in love with my Note 2 for years now….debated the Note 3, but stuck with N2. The N4 is just too great not to get. Can’t wait!!!

    • Barv

      Me too, totally agree

  • Grant

    I just submitted an AT&T pre order and the shipping date first said “pending confirmation”. After a quick page refresh, it reads: 10/14/14 😁

  • starryeyed27

    I had the Note 2 and it died a horrendous and tragic death. However I was lucky enough to get the Note 3 shorty after it came out and I’ve loved every minute with it. I just preordered my Note 4 and I am beyond excited. Apple sucks.

  • biggambit

    Bought my note 3 a year ago love it would love to get note 4 edge but I think I’ll wait a year wh all the bugs are fixed and have more apps using edge screen. Samsung for life
