Four years on from the original Galaxy Note phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is finally here. The device brings together big power, a big screen and big productivity. Emmanouil Revmatas, director, Information Technology and Mobile, Samsung Electronics West Africa, in this interview with BEN UZOR, talks us through some key features which makes this device a must-have.

Back in 2011, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note, which came with a 5.3-inch screen. At the time, many thought it was too large to be a phone and too compact to be a tablet. Today, the story is different. Mobile phone makers are now following in your footsteps, making phones with larger displays and more ergonomic design. How does this make you feel and to what would you attribute this foresight

Akey trait of market leaders is anticipating or creating future trends. The Note Series is an example of this and has become synonymous with Samsung. Driving this segment is improved accessibility to the internet, the social media wave and our “on the go connected lifestyles” we have adopted. All of this requires a device that has a screen large enough to allow comfortable and convenient consumption and creation of content – the Note Series meets this need!
