A new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date in October has been spotted alongside a new pre-order that promises a Galaxy Note 4 release earlier than the current rumored Galaxy Note 4 release date.
Earlier this month, Samsung announced the all new Galaxy Note 4, the company’s fourth-generation Galaxy Note and a device that’s poised to replace the Galaxy Note 3 in just a few short weeks. At the launch event, Samsung went into great detail about its Next Big Thing though it did hold back on some of the key features including the Galaxy Note 4 price and the specific Galaxy Note 4 release date.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 release date is confirmed for October though the specific date in the United States and abroad remains unclear. We’ve seen an October 10th release date pop up at retailers in the Netherlands though that date remains unconfirmed. Today, we’ve spotted two new Galaxy Note 4 listings on the U.S. version of Amazon that hint at another possible Galaxy Note 4 release date.
Retailer DeltaMobiles is currently taking Galaxy Note 4 pre-orders for the SM-910, or, the international version of the Galaxy Note 4. The retailer’s listing on Amazon is for both the black and white Galaxy Note 4 models and the pre-order comes with an expensive off-contract price of $899.99. That’s far more expensive than last year’s Galaxy Note 3 price and it’s a price that seems unlikely given what we’ve seen from Galaxy Note 4 price leaks.
What’s interesting is that the retailer is listing an October 3rd release date. This is the first time that we’ve seen this date pop up and while it’s not confirmed, it does fit into Samsung’s current Galaxy Note 4 release date window. This release date might fall in the month of October but it should be considered flimsy given who it’s coming from.
More often than not, Amazon release dates listed with pre-orders turn out to be placeholders rather that concrete dates so it’s possible that the date we’re seeing here is simply that. If it is a placeholder, it’s an extremely specific one. At the very least, this new Galaxy Note 4 pre-order gives consumers the opportunity to buy the Galaxy Note 4 right now though we recommend waiting for official pre-orders from U.S. carriers themselves.
What is clear that the Galaxy Note 4 release date is making progress. While Samsung remains mum, we have seen the Galaxy Note 4 release remain very active behind the scenes. We recently spotted a number of international variants passing through their Bluetooth certification and we’ve seen Galaxy Note 4 variants pass through the FCC on their way to shelves. Even the AT&T Galaxy Note 4 has been spotted cruising through the FCC’s clutches.
While the Galaxy Note 4 release date remains out of reach, we do know what to expect from the Galaxy Note 4 specs. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be loaded up with new features including a new 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 805 processor from Qualcomm, 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization, new design that features plastic and metal, 32GB of storage, Android 4.4.4 KitKat, new software, and a brand new S Pen.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 will be a powerful smartphone but it will have to contend with the iPhone 6, a device that will feature 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays combined with a sleek metal design. The iPhone 6 will go up for pre-order starting tomorrow with a release date that’s confirmed for September 19th. At this point, it looks like Apple will beat the Galaxy Note 4 to release despite launching a week earlier.
It will also have to match up with the new Moto X from Motorola, a successor to the original Moto X, and a device that’s expected to arrive sometime later on this month.
