Most American customers won’t be able to get the Galaxy Note 4 until October 17th, although it seems that some lucky T-Mobile subscribers who preordered the device have already started receiving it at their doorsteps. On its website, TmoNews has posted a couple of pictures from readers who just received their shiny new Note 4s in the mail this week even though most Note fans will still have to wait a couple more days before they get their hands on the device.

FROM EARLIER: Galaxy Note 4 hasn’t even launched and it’s already received a major update

Alongside the iPhone 6 Plus, the Note 4 is the most highly anticipated new phablet to release this year. The Note 4 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, a 2.7GHz quad-core processor, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and 8x digital zoom, 3GB of RAM, a 3,220mAh battery and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

The device is officially launching on all four major American carriers in just three days despite the fact that Samsung actually first unveiled the device in early September. Samsung has come under pressure to really make the Note 4 a big hit now that Apple has finally decided to release a larger smartphone with a display of 5.5 inches.
