Galaxy Note 4 Camera

Samsung is surely not a good secret-keeper as the details about its highly anticipated smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4 are being sprinkled all over the Internet. The latest leak spills that this flagship Android phablet from Samsung will reportedly be using a 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 camera sensor with OIS (optical image stabilisation) and 4K UHD video recording capability at 30 fps. The Sony IMX240 is the same camera sensor which is used in the Korea-only version of Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A.

The front-facing camera of the Galaxy Note 4 will be a 3.7-megapixel unit, capable of capturing images and video in WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). This will be a noticeable bump in resolution and capabilities from the widely used 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera sensor by Samsung.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Camera Specifications & Features

  • 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 camera sensor with autofocus and OIS (optical image stabilisation) lens
  • 4K UHD video recording at 30 fps
  • 3.7-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Advanced camera modes- Wide Selfie, Selfie, Selfie Alarm, as well as Create a GIF File
  • Side-Touch button can act as a dedicated camera key

Other camera features of the Galaxy Note 4 includes ‘Side Touch’ which is a gesture-based method to activate the device when its screen is turned off. The side touch button will be capacitive in nature and will act as an invisible dedicated key to access camera without a need for tactile feedback. It would discard the requirement to half-press the button to get correct focusing. Moreover, the camera will also feature four advanced camera modes. The 4 modes are Wide Selfie, Selfie, Selfie Alarm, as well as Create a GIF File. All camera tricks present in the Samsung Galaxy S5 will also be retained in the Note 4 with the uniform Samsung interface.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 seems to be well equipped to handle the sky-high expectations from consumers. But there is much more to be revealed in a matter of 2 weeks, so stay tuned with us to keep up with all the action.
