Samsung unveiled what it claims is its most advanced phablet to date, the Galaxy Note 4, at the IFA trade show in September.
The Note 4 underlined Samsung's commitment to the phablet market - one it arguably created with its first Note device. Since then several rivals have entered the market, including Apple with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
V3 has put together a guide to all the key information you need to know about the Note 4. Check back regularly as we update this page with more news on the Note 4 as it becomes available.
V3 reviewed the Galaxy Note 4 last month, as we looked to see how Samsung had managed to improve on its previous models.
We were impressed with many aspects of the phone, noting that it offers fast performance, decent camera quality, and above average battery life, as well as several security services.
However, at over £600 Sim-free, the device is somewhat costly and offers only 32GB of in-built storage, far below that of rival devices like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which can go as high as 128GB. In spite of this the Note 4 still scored a strong four-star review.
Samsung released the Galaxy Note 4 on 17 October, and it was originally scheduled to hit the UK on 10 October having gone up for preorder on 19 September. Samsung claims it was forced to push the Galaxy Note 4's release date back due to high pre-order demand.
When it comes to specs the Galaxy Note 4 is a seriously impressive piece of kit. Measuring in at 8.5mm and weighing 176g, the Galaxy Note 4 features the same fake leather-finish backplate and metallic sides as past Note devices. It houses a sizeable 5.7in QHD 2560x1440 Super Amoled display coated in '2.5D' curved glass.
The handset runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM, and features a large 3,229mAh battery. The battery includes a Fast Charging feature that lets it charge from zero to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
Camera-wise the Galaxy Note 4 comes with a 16MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilisation, and a 3.7MP front camera.
On the software front the Galaxy Note 4 runs a heavily customised version of Android 4.4 Kitkat, not Google's newly unveiled Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The customised features are designed to take advantage of the Galaxy Note 4's dockable S Pen Stylus. Key additions include multi-window support and Samsung's S Note notation app.
