Last week we talked a bit about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition that was unveiled for Verizon customers. If that smartphone piqued your interest, you will be glad to hear that the device is now available to ship. The dev edition of the smartphone is available in black, will sell for $699.99, and can be purchased directly from the Samsung website.
It will only operate on the Verizon network. Like the normal Note 4, the dev version rocks a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen and has an enhanced S Pen. The smartphone has a 3.7MP front camera with a wide-angle lens for selfies or group shots.
The rear camera is a 16MP unit with optical image stabilization. Internal memory is 3GB and storage is 32GB. That big 5.7-inch screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1440. The dev version runs Android 4.4 KitKat for the operating system, and is ready for Android 5.0.
The big feature for the developer edition of this device is that it comes with bootloaders that can be unlocked easily. That means developers needing to install custom ROMs and kernels can do that more easily and quickly on this version of the smartphone than normal versions.
