24 SEP 2014

Samsung announced that its Galaxy Note 4 phablet will make its debut in its home market of South Korea on 26 September with 140 countries to follow by the end of October.

Samsung’s phablet was launched at the IFA trade show in Berlin at the beginning of the month and features an updated version of the company’s S Pen stylus technology.

The Note 4 features improved pressure sensitivity and recognises speed, tilt and direction, to provide a more natural writing experience.

Other features include a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED 2K screen, 16MP rear-facing camera and 3.7MP camera on the opposite side of the devices.

At an event in Seoul, Samsung also announced South Korean availability of its Galaxy Note Edge which has a screen that wraps around the side of the device, and the Gear S smartwatch with 3G connectivity that enables it to work without being paired with a smartphone.

These devices will be joined by the Gear Circle, a device worn around the network which connects to a smartphone so that users can receive calls, listen to music and carrry out voice commands via Bluetooth. Availability of the Gear VR headset, which provides virtual reality functionality, was also confirmed.

Launch dates for these other devices may vary by region, according to Samsung.
