Samsung announced three new products, the Galaxy Note 4, Note Edge and the Gear VR, as it steps up the competition with Apple and other smartphone makers. Both the Note 4 and Note Edge are larger than 5-inches, as consumers increasingly ask for larger phones. Each phone has a 16 MP rear-facing camera and a 3.7 MP front camera that can be expanded beyond the standard 90 degrees to 120 degrees for those fun loving group selfies. They'll also have expandable storage and removable batteries. The Note Edge has a curved screen, showing off Samsung's ability to innovate and keep the heat on Apple ahead of its iPhone event next week.
