If there is something that can turn a good phone into a great one, it is the addition of a dual SIM.
The Galaxy Note 4 is now available in dual SIM for the Chinese market and it is possible that the handset with two SIM cards will be available worldwide in the future. Are there any changes in the phablet other than the dual SIM? Yes, and we’re breaking them down for you.
The dual SIM Note 4 comes in three variants, two with a 24 month contract and one is a SIM free option. All three variants are able to connect to 4G networks over TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE networks. That is for the primary SIM card, while the second SIM supports only 2G networks.
The dual SIM variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 comes with less built in memory than the original version. The dual SIM version comes with just 16 GB built in memory, opposed to 32 GB of the original Note 4. The dual SIM version also ships with a quad core processor with the clocking speed set at 2.7 GHz and RAM set at 3 GB.
Battery capacity is another area where Samsung has made changes. The company has reduced the capacity of the dual SIM version to 3000 mAh from 3220 mAh. However, the new handset has a special charging feature, called Adaptive Fast Charging, which charges the battery for up to 0 to 50% in 30 minutes.
While the details of the contract versions of the Note 4 are not known yet, the SIM free version of the dual SIM Note 4 will sell for $880. That is a hefty increase considering the original Galaxy Note 4 is priced at $750.
Other specs and features, such as camera, display and size stay the same. The handset still features a 5.7 inch screen display with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels, a 16-MP shooter on the back and a 3.7-MP sensor on the front of the device. The dual SIM variant will also run on the Android 4.4 KitKat.
