Verizon lists the Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition on its website
Just like every other device that hits the Verizon networks, the Galaxy Note 4 also comes with a locked down bootloader, which makes gaining root access and flashing custom ROMs on it a challenging task.
To cater to the enthusiasts using their network, Verizon releases ‘Developer Edition’ of its handsets and it looks like it is going to do something similar with the Galaxy Note 4 as its listing has popped up on the carrier’s website.
Specs wise, the Developer Edition of Galaxy Note 4 packs the same specs as the regular variant including a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 3GB RAM, a 16MP camera with OIS and a 3220mAh removable battery. The only difference compared to the normal Note 4 is that it comes with an unlockable bootloader, which will aid third-party developers in creating custom ROMs and kernels for it.
Sadly, if you want to buy the Developer edition of the Galaxy Note 4, you will have to outright pay them $662.50, which is $30 less than what Verizon sells the non-developer variant for. The phablet is still listed as “Coming soon,” though that should change sometime in the next few days.
