A reliable source has tipped Android Geeks that Samsung will be releasing its Galaxy Note 4 at a September 3 event later this year, with media invitations to be sent out in mid-August. It is notable as this was the same source that correctly predicted the launch of the Note 3 last year. The date of the event seems to be in the correct time frame, compared with previous releases of the Note family of devices.
Of particular interest are the rumoured features that the Note 4 will come with. Sam Mobile has reported that possible new features inmay include ‘Swipe to launch Motion Launcher’, ‘Aqua Capture’, ‘Multi Network for Booster’, and ‘Smart Fingerprint’.
Swipe to launch Motion Launcher is said to be a new test feature that is similar to the Motion Launch offered by HTC. Both Android launches allows users to directly launch camera, wake up devices and perform other tasks with different swipe gestures on the display. Smart Fingerprint is reportedly an enhanced version of the fingerprint sensor that is currently present in the Galaxy S5 smartphone.
Aqua Capture, as the name suggest, will allow users to take photos underwater, just like the Galaxy S4 Active. In other words, this means that the rumoured Note 4 device will come with better water-resistance than the Galaxy S5. The last feature, Multi Network for Booster will work similarly like the Download Booster on Galaxy S5, which boosts the download speed by combining both Wi-Fi and mobile networks data. This allows users to achieve a faster download speed with their device.
Technical specifications wise, the Note 4 is reported to come with a 5.7 inch or 5.9 inch Quad HD screen with a 2K resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The new Note will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a camera similar to the one on the Galaxy S5 but with upgraded optical image stabilisation.
