Those familiar with Samsung and Verizon will know that the Korean company tends to release developer editions of its smartphones with the US carrier. History is repeating itself as Samsung has leaked the Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition, which will probably come to Big Red, although if you want one you will have to be willing to spend big.A new page as appeared on Samsung's website for a Developer Edition Galaxy Note 4. As we have become used to with these handsets, the specs are identical to those found in the Galaxy Note 4 proper, but because this is a Developer Edition it will come with bootloader that is easy to unlock, perfect for all those Android fans who like to really get to grips and play with the operating system. In terms of the core specs, the DE Galaxy Note 4 will get 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 also has a 16 megapixel rear camera, a 3.7 megapixel front facer, a 3220 mAh battery, 32GB of on board storage and a microSD slot. As we have seen with previous Developer Editions, the Note 4 will not be cheap as it will not be subsidized by Verizon or any other carrier for that matter. That means you will have to cough up the full retail price to get your hands on one, and at $662.53 the Developer Edition Galaxy Note 4 is right up there in terms of expensive smartphones. Samsung has not detailed any specific launch dates, although the device has yet to pass through the FCC so it could be at least a few weeks away yet. I would bet an early to mid-November roll out seems the most likely at the moment. source: Samsung
