Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Digital Photography Review Connect reports: [edited]

Samsung has announced the latest iteration of its top-of-the-line phablet, the Galaxy Note 4. In terms of design the new model is very close to its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 3, and also features the same faux-leather back. Under the hood, however, things have been upgraded significantly, specifically in the camera department.

For mobile photographers, the big news about the Galaxy Note 4 is its optical image stabilisation system. The Note 4's camera sensor is the same 1/2.6-inch 16MP BSI CMOS unit with F2.2 maximum aperture as on the Galaxy S5.

There is also a 3.7MP front camera with a fast F1.9 maximum aperture and a couple of features for improved selfie-shooting. You can use the heart-rate monitor on the device's back as a shutter button and the front-camera allows for recording of selfie-panoramas.

The Note 4 comes with a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 QHD (a pixel density of 518 ppi). Android 4.4 is powered by a quad- or octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM. Images can be stored on 32GB internal memory or a microSD card. The 3320 mAh battery offers a quick-charging mode that according to Samsung lets you charge from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes.
