New features tipped for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4

New features tipped for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Just the other day, we told you about an insider who claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be unveiled on September 3rd, just prior to IFA 2014 in Berlin. Today, another insider has reported that Samsung is testing some new features for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 on a Samsung Galaxy S5 running Android 4.4.3.

Among the new features is "Swipe to launch Motion Launcher" which could be a way for users to wake the device, open the camera and more, with a simple swipe. "Smart Fingerprint" could be a way for users to swipe their finger over the fingerprint sensor to open up some functions. Remember, on the Samsung Galaxy S5, you can use the fingerprint scanner to make a Pay Pal payment. Perhaps "Smart Fingerprint" opens up even more functions.

Another feature, called "Aqua Capture," could be similar to the "Aqua Mode" on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active that allows users to take pictures and video underwater. And "Multi Network for Booster" might be similar to the "Download Booster" feature on the Samsung Galaxy S5. This combines a Wi-Fi and a mobile data network to help you download large files quickly.

We still could have a bit more than three months before the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 sees the light of day, and things are still in flux. Still, it sounds like Sammy is going to have a whole bunch of fun features for the next iteration of its phablet line.
