Samsung apparently has another trick up their sleeves for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, as it tries to become a jack-of-all-trades device. What extraordinary feature are they adding this time?
Rumors have been going around about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and new details have surfaced online thanks to an insider at Samsung.
The insider has leaked information, including features called ‘Swipe to launch Motion Launcher’, ‘Aqua Capture’, ‘Multi Network for Booster’, and ‘Smart Fingerprint’. The insider says that these are being tested on the Samsung Galaxy S5 with KitKat 4.4.2.
It was said that these features would be coming on the fourth gen Samsung Galaxy Note, with most of the features being borrowed from the flagship Galaxy handset.
Aqua Capture is said to mimic the Aqua Mode feature, which is used to take underwater photos, on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and Multi Network for Booster feature, which mixes Wi-Fi and mobile data connection, so that it can download larger files faster.
Along with this Swipe to launch Motion Launcher has been taken from the Motion Launch feature of the HTC One M8, which means that the user can wake up the handset, active camera and other things with just one single swipe of a finger if the handset is in standby.
The Smart Fingerprint feature means that people can define custom actions for specific tasks that require a finger swipe on the fingerprint sensor. It can be used for tasks such as unlocking the phone to more difficult functions, which includes making PayPal payments.
At the moment we don’t have details about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, we don’t know the release date either, so this should all be taken with a pinch of salt.
