LG announced last week that it would be offering a free charger, battery, and charging cradle with every G4 purchase in the United States through July. Korean counterpart Samsung thinks it can do better though and the company is offering $200 off every Galaxy Note 4 bought during this month, again this is a United States exclusive unfortunately.Of course there are a few caveats in place, not least that you cannot just walk into a store and get a discounted Galaxy Note 4. Instead, Samsung is employing a cashback system that means you will have to jump through a few hoops to get that $200, but nothing too off-putting. Firstly you will have to buy your Galaxy Note 4 within the dates of the promotion, which runs from 7th July (today) to midnight on July 26th/27th. After that you need to head to www.samsungpromotions.com/notablesavings/ and register your handset before August 27th, which will require a scanned receipt of purchase, the smartphone?s IMEI, and a Wi-Fi MAC address. Once you have past that step you'll be good to go. The offer is running in all 50 U.S. states and the district of Colombia. Samsung has not said which retail brands are participating so we are assuming all major carriers and retailers are included, although we will update with any further confirmation either way.
(Re the Note 4)As for the Super AMOLED panel, it is now Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440) which brings it in line with screen kings such as the LG G3. Elsewhere the specs are typically blockbuster, which is what we have come to expect from the Note series. The Korean version of the handset will get Samsung's own Exynos 5433 chipset, which is split up into a 1.9GHz quad-core processor for bigger activities and a 1.3GHz quad-core for less exhaustive tasks. The worldwide variant of the device gets the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.7GHz, while both versions get 3GB of RAM. Around the back there is a 16MP camera and a heart rate monitor, while a 3.7MP front facing sensor gets aperture of f/1.9 and is joined on the forward panel by a fingerprint reader. There are 32GB and 64GB storage options, while a micro SD can add up to another 64GB on top.
