Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 has already been released in South Korea and has sold out of pre-orders after the company moved the launch forward to counter Apple?s iPhone 6. However, October is going to be the month where the Note 4 is busiest, with the handset going on something of a world roll out tour, finding its way to 140 countries before the start of November.So, you may be wondering when your particular region will be getting the coveted phablet device, but luckily Samsung has your back. The Korean giant has revealed a map that charts the dates and locations of each Galaxy Note 4 launch, you can check it out in the main image. First things first, you will see that the United States does not seem to have a colored dot, but that's because the dot in Canada accounts for North America (Canada/US). The handset has already started rolling out in the US and is available from today. China and South Korea already have the new smartphone, while the next in line will be several countries on the 10th October. Those include Canada, as well as the UK, and India. Other countries will continue to get the device as the month rolls out, with Europe landing the Note 4 on October 17th. The full roll out will close on November 5th when Samsung?s new flagship hits its 140th country. The Galaxy Note 4 has a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, a Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, an Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB RAM, and of course the S Pen stylus. It is also more affordable than previous Galaxy Note models according to Samsung, although on a basic money down deal in the US it still tallies to $299, so the company is obviously talking about unlocked. Will you be picking up Samsung's latest when it hits your region later this month? UPDATE: It seems regional divsions of Samsung cannot agree on the launch of the device, with the German division saying the device lands on the 17th, while the map says the 10th. Oh dear, perhaps you should consulte more than Samsung's OFFICIAL map when checking for the Note 4 in your neck of the woods. source: Phandroid
