Bad news if you live in Australia: If you’re one of the many people who plan to preorder the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, it will be delayed. The much-anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was set to go on sale on October 29th, but Samsung Australia has just issued a statement saying that it will not be able to hit that launch date.
