The Galaxy Note 4 Could Have a Couple of Nifty Camera Tricks Up its Sleeve

By Tom Pritchard on at

Taking a photo on your phone isn't as quick as it should be because you've got to take it out, turn on the screen, unlock it, and then navigate to the camera app. By that time your cat has stopped pulling a stupid face and the potential Reddit Karma will never come to be. Thanks to a new leak, a couple of new features on the Galaxy Note 4 could make that process a smidge faster.

According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 4 will come with what is known as a "Smart Touch" button, which is basically a little sensor on the bottom right-hand side of the phone. Tapping the sensor once the camera app is open will take a picture so you don't have to go faffing around with the touch screen.

That's all well and good, but you must be wondering what this has to do with getting to the camera app faster? The rumours also suggest that Samsung is working on some sort of gesture control that will allow you to open the camera app in one simple action -- even if the screen is switched off at the time.

The Galaxy Note 4 is expected to be launched at IFA in early September, with the camera itself rumoured to be 16MP, with Optical Image Stabilisation, and Ultra-HD video recording capabilities. [SamMobile via Slashgear]
