Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launched in India, price Rs 56-58k

After making fans for weeks, Samsung has launched the Note 4 in India with a maximum retail price of Rs 58,300, implying that the phone should be available in the 56,000 range in practice.

The phone’s expected price in India was Rs 55,000.

The launch has come quite fast, possibly due to the ongoing Diwali shopping season. It was launched around a month ago in the US.

Along with the LG G3 (price Rs 36,000), the Oppo Find (Rs 38,000) and the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro (Rs 33,000) – the Samsung Note will be one of the few quad-HD phones in India.

“​The Note series is much more than the large screen,” Samsung said.

“The advanced Multi Window feature in Galaxy Note 4 enriches the user’s experience by providing them with the key to easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with one intuitive swipe.

“Its extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second, providing an ultimate viewing experience.”

The Galaxy Note 4 also sports an advanced camera that reproduces brighter and clearer images. The device is equipped with a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. The device’s camera is further strengthened by features like Selective Focus, Rear-cam Selfie, Beauty face, Virtual Tour Shot, Shot & More among others.

In addition, the 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera with an f1.9 aperture offers a default 90 degree shooting. The Wide Selfie feature for the front camera allows users to capture selfies covering angles up to 120 degrees, by seamlessly stitching additional parts around you. The heart rate monitor which sits on the rear side of the phablet can be tapped to shoot a selfie.

In addition, the Note 4 also comes with the S Pen and S Note. “The Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen has been specifically evolved to serve as the primary interface for routine tasks. This new S Pen offers a much more authentic pen experience, with a more natural brush effect that perfectly emulates writing on paper with a fountain or calligraphy pen. The S Pen serves as the key to a more user-friendly Air Command functionality with intuitive features such as Action Memo, Smart Select, Image Clip and Screen Write that allow users to create and collect content with ease. A new Smart Select feature enables users to easily piece together content from different origins, and share or collect it with ease.”

​The Galaxy Note 4 also provides users with a choice of multiple, seamless note-taking methods integrated with Samsung’s S Note application. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Photo Note feature allows users to take a picture and convert the image into editable format within the S-Note. They can also further unleash their creativity by jotting down their thoughts quickly with the Voice Memo.

​The Galaxy Note 4 has moved away from the plasticky appearance of phones like the S5. “The device features a premium metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the device display. The Galaxy Note 4’s 2.5D glass screen, inherited from the Galaxy S3, offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device’s rich viewing experience. The soft-textured back cover gives the device a luxurious finish while also providing a comfortable grip.”

Samsung has also laid emphasis on the battery life of the Galaxy Note 4 so as to ensure that the users enjoy the host of features without interruption.

“The Adaptive Fast Charging feature in the Galaxy Note 4 charges the battery from 0% to 50% in 33 minutes, which is 44% faster than conventional charging. The Ultra Power Saving Mode complements the fast charging by ensuring that users don’t run out of power when they need it most. And to top it off, the Galaxy Note 4 consumes less power than its predecessor, thus increasing the battery life by 7.5%.”

The Galaxy Note 4 comes equipped with multiple microphones and an improved speaker phone for better noise cancellation when speaking in loud environments.

“A built-in Voice Recorder offers eight directional voice tagging and a selective playback capability that allows users to isolate and listen to specific voices in a group conversation. The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data and the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device.”

Also launched is the Gear S watch.
