The Note 4 will be launching on all US carriers and will come packing the best hardware just like every other Note that has launched. We will be seeing the same 5.7″ screen that the Note 3 has but this time a bump in resolution with a Quad HD or QHD display at 2560 x 1440. There has also been quite a bit of update to the S-Pen as it now will give better writing feel when using it. Camera is 16MP with a 3.7 front-facing camera and now you can use the finger print scanner on the back as the selfie shutter button (answer to LGG3?). They also threw in OIS for image stabilization on pics. Powering the Note 4 is a 3220mAh battery with rapid charge, that Samsung says you can charge to 50% right at 30 min. We will see two different variants of the processor as always when it launches. Some markets will be blasting through with the 1.9 GHz Octa-Core (1.9GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad-Core) Processor and other markets will see the 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor. 

Side by side not a lot of difference if you are looking at the Note 3 and 4 but is there enough under the hood to get you to upgrade? (Video via Android Central)

The other big-ticket of the show was the Samsung Edge. Take the exact specs of the Note 4 but throw in a new curved display with edge options for notifications and alerts. After reading many reviews of this I am not sure how I feel about it as it seems like it gets in the way more than the good it does but only time will tell. This will be new tech and I am sure will only get better with time and updates. Check out the pic below.
