Samsung says the Galaxy Note 4 is "about to change how you photograph"

What we’re seeing above is a rather surprising statement from Samsung Mobile US, which claims that the brand new Galaxy Note 4 will change the way we “photograph & much more.” While we certainly expect the Note 4 to have a very good camera (better than the one featured by the Note 3), we’re not sure that it can truly change the way we take photos.

As you may already know, the Note 4 features a 16 MP ISOCELL rear camera with Smart Optical Image Stabilization and LED flash. Granted, this could be one of the best cameras ever found on a Samsung handset, but it just doesn’t seem to be revolutionary enough to change anything. Of course, we’ll have to wait until we can test the camera to have a final conclusion.

Besides the 16 MP main camera, the Note 4 also offers a wide-angle 3.7 MP front-facing camera, though the statement above doesn’t seem to be related to this snapper (since the image accompanying it shows the rear camera).

The Galaxy Note 4 can currently be bought in South Korea and China, and will be released in lots of other markets (about 140) this month. In the US, all major carriers are already taking pre-orders for the new Note, expecting to release it on or about October 17.

What do you think, does it look like the Note 4 can change the way we take photos with a smartphone?
