As the pre-IFA days are round the corner, a plethora of rumors about the highly anticipated Galaxy Note 4 are making rounds all over the tech media world. Adding to this list, a new report by SamMobile reveals the detailed camera features of the phablet.
According to this report, the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a 16 MP Sony IMX240 primary camera that will be coupled with optical image stabilization. Also, it is claimed that this snapper can capture Ultra HD videos with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels.
In addition to this impressive rear camera, it appears like Samsung will be focusing more on the front-facer making the handset a selfie focused one. Well, the handset will feature a significant upgrade from the usual 2.1 MP sensor at the front to a 3.7 MP one with the capability to capture images and videos at WQHD resolution of 2560×1440 pixels.
On the features front, the Galaxy Note 4 is said to come with a new aspect called Side Touch that is nothing but a sensor placed on the bottom right of the device. However, instead of the conventional physical camera buttons, this one will be a capacitive one that will enable the device to capture a snap by simply tapping on to the side. This feature also has its own downsides and it will render the Easy Mode and Portrait Mode inaccessible while recording videos. It has to be noted that this Side Touch feature was likely to be a part of the Galaxy S5, but it was called off at the last minute.
The report goes on stating that Samsung will add a gesture based shortcut to the Note 4 using which users can access the camera easily even from the lock screen. This gesture will reportedly require the users to tap on the screen with two fingers and swipe them apart. Also, there will be four camera modes such as Wide Selfie, Selfie Alarm, Create a GIF file and Selfie modes. Besides these new traits, the Galaxy Note 4 will have those features that were a part of the Galaxy S5 as well and some of them are Selective Focus, HDR Live, Fast Auto Focus and others.
