As September 3 gets closer, more and more details about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4 smartphone are being revealed. The latest report from SamMobile notes that the smartphone will come with a 16MP rear camera and 3.7MP front shooter.
According to the website’s sources, Samsung is using 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 camera sensor on the smartphone, which supports optical image stabilisation. The camera is also capable of shooting UHD (3840×2160) videos at 30fps. On the other hand, a 3.7MP camera sensor is present on the front of the Note 4, which is capable of recording QHD (2560x1440p) videos. There is no word on the sensor make of the front camera.
In addition, the company is also expected to include something called Side Touch on the phone, which allows the users to click images by tapping on bottom right side of the phone. Instead of a dedicated camera button, the company will be using a sensor in the body of the phone.
“There are a few limitations of Side Touch – for example, you won’t be able to use it in Portrait Mode, Easy Mode, and while recording video (nor will it let you focus with a half-press as you would do on a physical camera button),” writes SamMobile.
On the software side, Samsung is including some gestures, which will give quick access to the camera app on the phone even when the screen is off. The usual camera enhancements present in Samsung smartphone will also be a part of Note 4.
We hope to hear more about these at the Samsung event.
