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.

Yeah, you wish. Any true phone enthusiasts know that S5 is superior to the OLD 5s in everyway.

I had the bugati note 3, ya it could open 20 videos together but Everytime I touched you tube icon it took seconds for screen to respond!! May b I was excessively obsessed with app launch time but only iphone could answer that. Seriously looking forward to buying note 4 only if the lags and hiccups here and there are mastered because I don't watch 20 videos together nor I watch movies, but I want a screen where whenever I touch there is an instantaneous response. And please no arguments over this that apple is best in that. It's the only phone besides stock android where screen responds instantaneously and dances with your fingers. Note 3 users can't deny that whenever you launch the gallery or camera or youtube , s note .. There's always this lag where after touching the app takes times to launch, and that was a piss off for me.

ok what were you smoking when you wrote this? iPhone undoutedly is a great device but Note 3 is no less either. Sue each have their strengths and weaknesses and picky people (myself included) look for these...but I'm a spec junkie so yeah I prefer the Note 3 and also the Note 3 is more suitable to my business needs. But i know people who like the iPhone 6 as much and I respect that...the size works for them maybe or they just dont care about screen res cuz iPhone has a good enough screen...no arguements. But you're saying this phone is better or that is better...buddy you're not comparing a feature phone to the iPhone....you're comparing the Note 3! So i ask again....what were you smoking when you wrote this? :)

Even with a larger display iPhone 6 should still be compared to more mainstream phones like the S5, M8 and the upcoming G3 and prime models. Based on rumored specs alone the Note 3 still out classes the iPhone 6. The Note series will always be the better device but due to size it will never be mainstream.

Note started the whole phlt phones I see no reason why it wouldn't... Besides is the only phlt phone that has some unique features than the galaxy phones.. Unlike other smartphone they are just big in size.. I see iPhone 6 in 3 different 6c 6 6L all the same except for size

Dell started the phablet phase, with the Dell Streak, it just didn't take-off as well as the Note Series because of Android Donut, or was it Cupcake. O.o

many makers started it, but the only one who successfully did was Samsung, then, others followed and now we have an army of phablets

The Note 4 will have a "new form factor", and besides design do you really think Newton's fruit can beat the Note series in specs? I don't think so... According to Isaac Newton, Apples fall.

The iPhone has never competed on specs, yet it still performs as well or better than the high end androids from the popular OEMS. Specs alone do not mean everything, something that a lot of ppl have a hard time learning. Also Apple's iPhone has always been one of the best looking phones on the market.

27. Tizen007

that is true. But I will go with the specs. And if the new form factor has a flexible display that is a plus.

uhh? what can your iF@rt do? it looks to me like a good old nokia. except it has apps and glad you guys got a control center that you cannot edit, feels like android donut?

It competes as well while doing much less. A slower runner can win a race with a better runner who has to do many other things while running.

the note 1 beats the iPhone 6 as does the g1 so really no comparison here. Each side has there fanboi's and it will never change. My suggestion get a device be happy and stay out of the wars lol

lmaooooooooooooooo the Note 3 beats every single iF@rt device out there, including the 6th edition iCr@p. You can't compare an Android flagship, and one as powerful as a Galaxy Note, to a featureless phone like yours. iphones should not be thought of as smartphones anymore, cause a smartphone nowadays does more than have apps and open facebook.

I would be surprise if it's not made of plastic.
