VANCOUVER — Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in Canada Oct. 24; pre-orders start today

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 will be released October 24 in Canada and pre-orders started today.

Samsung’s newest large-screened Note, which will be available in black or white, is listed on the Bell Mobility web site for $300 with a two-year contract and $800 with no contract. It will also be sold through Rogers, Telus and other major carriers and retailers.

The Note 4 has a 5.7-inch quad HD super AMOLED screen and an updated S Pen that lets you easily gather text, images and other content into a single document or email. For the selfie photogs, Samsung has stepped up the front-facing camera to 3.7 megapixels with a shooting angle that can be 90- degrees or 120-degrees, letting you get more faces or background in your selfie. The main camera is 16 megapixels

With battery length being the Achilles heel of smartphones, Samsung has introduced a new ultra power saving mode that keep the phone running with call and text reception for 24 hours on a 10 per cent charge.

I first saw the Note 4 at IFA when it was announced in September. You can read about it here.

Korean media quoted an unnamed Samsung representative as saying that the company expects to ship 15 million Note 4s in the first 30 days after its launch. The Note 4 launched in Korea Sept. 26. By comparison the Galaxy Note 4 shipped 10 million in the first two months and Apple reported first weekend sales for the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus of 10 million, although it didn’t provide a breakdown of how many for each version of its new smartphone.
