A week after the Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition appeared on Samsung’s website, the phone has become available for purchase.
Samsung is selling the Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition for $699.99, the same price that Verizon is asking for a no contract Note 4. There’s no subsidy available for this model, so it’s $700 or nothing. This Note 4 features the same specs as the regular Verizon Note 4 that’s been available for a while now, but the Dev Edition has a bootloader that can be unlocked, which allows for users to do things like load custom ROMs onto the phone.
Verizon typically locks its smartphones down pretty hard, which is why we see Developer Editions of flagship phones like the Moto X and Galaxy S5. While the Note 4 Developer Edition will cost you a pretty penny, it’s nice that at least the option of getting a Verizon-friendly unlockable Note 4 is available.
