Samsung has officially introduced its highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 4 phablet at its Unpacked pre-IFA 2014 event in Berlin and the device definitely does not disappoint.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is the company's latest flagship phablet and it has all the bells and whistles to make it worthy of the title. It is one of the hottest devices of this year, boasting top-notch specs and features all around, with notable improvements over its predecessor.

"The Galaxy Note series signaled extraordinary innovation within the technology industry. Its larger screen size and iconic S Pen technology launched a new standard in smartphone culture," JK Shin, CEO and head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics, touts in the press release. "With the introduction of the Galaxy Note series, we brought the old-age culture of the pen and notepad into the digital world. The new Galaxy Note 4 introduces the most refined Note experience to-date by combining all the latest technology that users expect from the Galaxy series."

Compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 4 is faster, more powerful, and comes with a lighter, yet stronger design. It also borrows the metal frame from the recently-launched Galaxy Alpha smartphone for a sturdier and more stylish look.

"The Galaxy Note 4 introduces a new sleek and stylish Galaxy design language. 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. A soft-textured back cover provides incredible comfort that makes it easy to control with one hand. The device not only looks beautiful, but offers a superior grip and enhanced durability," adds the press release.

In terms of specifications, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a whopping QHD (2K) resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which marks a 30 percent increase in pixel density compared to the Galaxy Note 3.  Other specs include 2.7GHz quad-core or a 1.9GHz octa-core processor(depending on region), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, microSD card support for additional memory of up to 64GB, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 3.7-megapixel front shooter, and a 3,220 mAh battery. On the software side, the handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be available on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular, and color options will include Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold, and Blossom Pink (see image above). The smartphone will hit global markets starting in October, but Samsung has yet to provide exact pricing and availability details.
