Samsung Introduces Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Edge, Gear VR
Samsung announced new devices in Berlin that include the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Edge, and the Gear VR. The new Galaxy Note is a power horse that continues to push the ability to pack everything into such a small frame. Samsung is also pushing the envelope with the new Galaxy Edge which has a curved screened. The edge is packed with quick links to apps, which will be quicker than going through the default Android launcher.
The VR headset is a high quality screen in the headset that allows you to be immersed in a 3D world. First of all it only works with the Note 4. That means you need the latest, greatest phablet to run it. Samsung has yet to announce pricing, but I would expect at least $299. If the Note 4 costs $199, you’re spending almost $500. It’s expected to ship this fall.
