The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 price is not official, but thanks to a contest we know the estimated Note 4 price that you can expect to pay off contract, and what the Note 4 costs on contract.
Samsung confirmed a U.S. Galaxy Note 4 release date in October and carriers are already taking names, but they are not taking pre-orders or confirming the Note 4 price, but thanks to a T-Mobile contest it’s clear that despite a Quad HD Super AMOLED display and a new premium Note 4 design the price should remain reasonable for users.
Contests always offer an estimated value for the prize and T-Mobile & Samsung do a good job of obscuring the Galaxy Note 4 price, but we are able to break it down enough to know you won’t be paying much more than the Galaxy Note 3.
Expect to an off contract Galaxy Note 4 price below $700, likely closer to $680 or the $664 that AT&T charges for a Note 3 off contract now. Here’s how we got to that number and why it means a Galaxy Note 4 price of $299 on contract ahead of Galaxy Note 4 deals that will undoubtedly chop the price $30 to $100 soon after release.
The T-Mobile contest lists the grand prize as;
A Samsung Galaxy Note® 4, a Samsung Gear™ Circle, an S View Flip Cover and winner’s choice of one (1) of the following: a Samsung Gear 2™ Neo, a Samsung Gear 2™, or a Samsung Gear™ Fit. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): Up to $1,329.96
Shortly after this, we see a retail value up to $299 for the Gear Circle and other wearables and the Note 4 S View flip cover is about $50. Once you pull the 2 Galaxy wearables and the case prices out you are left with an approximate Galaxy Note 4 price of $681.
This is not a confirmation of the Galaxy Note 4 price, but it’s close enough to the prices we expect to jump to a $660 to $680 Galaxy Note 4 price off contract and $299 on contract at U.S. carriers.
There was a chance that the Note 4 price could be higher thanks to a metal design and the Quad HD display, but it looks like you will be able to buy the Note 4 for about $299 on contract. One possibility is that Verizon will price the Note 4 at $349.99 on contract with a $50 mail in rebate card of some kind.
If you want to pay for the Galaxy Note 4 price on an installment plan like Jump!, Next or other options you will likely also pay between $27 and $32.50 a month based on these prices.
Assuming this Note 4 price is correct it matches the estimated 5.5-inch iPhone 6 price that Apple may announce next week. It is possible Samsung and carriers are waiting to see what Apple does before confirming the Galaxy Note 4 price to users.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 includes a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display with a metal design and a soft touch back. In the U.S. you can count on a 2.7GHz processor and 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. The rear facing camera is a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization and a 3.7MP front facing camera that lets in more light. The device runs Android 4.4 and includes an S Pen with new features, Multitasking and a revamped Multi-Window mode to run two apps at the same time.
Samsung confirmed a U.S. Galaxy Note 4 release date for October. The Galaxy Note 4 colors include black, white, bronze gold and pink. Users can buy the Galaxy Note 4 on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular when the release date is closer. Look for Note 4 price confirmation and pre-order details in the next several weeks.
