Samsung Unveils The Galaxy Note 4 | TechCrunch. Yesterday's announcement of the Galaxy Note 4 was an expected incremental upgrade of the Note 3. Do you absolutely, positively have to have this phone? Not if you have the Note 3 already. However, there are enough improvements; especially to the utility of the S Pen, and battery life, that bleeding edge types like the FutureLawyer will want one. The really new next thing is the use of the Note 4 and its powerful processor, screen and internals, to power an Oculus VR headset that promises to revolutionize the way we view concerts, TV, gaming, virtual tourism, and a whole host of applications. You don't need a dedicated headset to experience the best in VR. Just pop your Note 4 into the Oculus headset, and it will do all the work. Both will be available later this Fall. I am still trying to figure out how Apple will claim ownership of Virtual Reality.
