The all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has now been officially unveiled. The Galaxy Note 4 brings with it a pretty impressive 2.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, which certainly won’t be struggling to keep things moving despite the screen. Also worthy of, ahem, note, is the 3GB of RAM that the phone is running – there are still plenty of people with PCs that don’t have that kind of memory. The internal memory of the Galaxy Note 4 is a not insignificant 64GB, which should mean you don’t have to choose between your collection of Jean Claude Van Damme movies and your lovingly put-together eclectic music. Of course, there’s a microSD slot too, with the ability to add 128GB more if you’re thinking of downloading the internet for a day.
