Samsung shows off Galaxy Note 4’s not-so-secret weapon in new teaser video

It might not be the most hotly anticipated smartphone launching this fall — in fact, it might not even be the most hotly anticipated phablet launching this fall, thanks to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model set to be released in the coming months — but Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4 is shaping up to be one of the most impressive handsets of the year.

Recent leaks have reaffirmed Galaxy Note 4 specs that include a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor or a 1.2GHz octa-core Exynos chipset, a massive 2560 x 1440-pixel display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 3.68-megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.4.3 KitKat. And now, with the new phablet set to be unveiled next week, Samsung has started to issue teaser videos in an effort to whet Android fans’ appetite.

You can now buy the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made for just $79

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 might not be the most exciting smartphone the world has ever seen, but it’s still easily the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made. It has a gorgeous full HD display, a lightning-fast processor, a shockingly good camera and plenty more that make the Galaxy S5 one of the most capable handsets to date. Sales haven’t been terribly impressive and Samsung’s stock is down more than 12.5% over the past 3 months as a result, but that certainly doesn’t make the device any less appealing to smartphone buyers — and if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, now is the perfect time to consider the S5.
