While Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 4 on Wednesday, September 3, the purported pricing of the phablet has been revealed by a European electronics retailer, Media Markt.
According to a report by a Russian website, a representative of retailer Media Markt has tipped that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be priced at RUB 34,990 (approximately Rs. 56,700) for the Russian market, and will go on sale in late September or early October.

On Saturday, a device with model number SM-N910T thought to be the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was spotted in a User Agent profile on the company’s mobile site along with display resolution and a hint of a 64-bit SoC.
The User Agent (UA) profile listing showed that the alleged ‘SM-N910T’ Galaxy Note 4 features a Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) display. It also speculated that the processor powering the smartphone is 64-bit, based on other details in the UA profile.
Earlier, the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was listed in two variants – SM-N910S and SM-N910C, depending on region – by an Indonesian online retailer. The listing had also included mention of a Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) Super AMOLED display offering a pixel density of 515ppi on a 5.7-inch screen; 4GB of RAM; 16GB/ 32GB/ 64GB inbuilt storage variants; expandable storage up to 128GB (via microSD card); Micro-SIM support; 16-megapixel camera with OIS, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat.
The Indonesian Galaxy Note 4 retail listing mentions a 2.5GHz quad-core processor (possibly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) variant and an octa-core (Exynos with 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 and four quad-core Cortex-A57 cores) variant. The website had listed the smartphone for IDR 9,499,000, which translates to roughly Rs. 50,000.
