The first week of September will be buzzing with announcements. One of the most anticipated of them is the unveiling of the new large-sized high-end smartphone of the mobile giant Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The interest towards the phablet is so big, that it has been hard for Samsung to keep in secret loads of the features and the capabilities of the model. Thanks to SamMobile we can share the latest gossip about the device. It seems the Galaxy Note 4 will be armored with very similar finger print sensor that is integrated in the latest flagships Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Samsung Galaxy S5. The sensor uses Synaptics’ Natural ID solution. It is integrated in the home button. There is a second sensor included in the bottom side of the screen.
The advanced fingerprint sensor is used with abundance of features and apps. Some of them we already know from Galaxy S5 (on the photo), such as Samsung Account Verification, PayPal Payments, Screen Lock, fingerprint authentication etc. Rumors say that the tech used in the phablet Galaxy Note 4 will support even more features. Among them is the “Fingerprint Shortcuts.” It is used for assigning certain apps or commands to the registered fingerprint. This means that users will be able to open apps straight from the lock screen which saves a lot of time. The fingerprint sensor works with Web Sign-In, too, according to SamMobile. It enables users to sign-in to different websites just like they unlock the device – swipe a finger over the home button.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is coming on 3rd of September at the UNPACKED event. The screen of the model is with 5.7-inch diagonal and a resolution of 2560 x 1440p. The new large-sized gladiator is packed with a powerful quad-core processor with Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3GB RAM. The main camera of the device has OIS. Overall the phablet is promising to outrun the success of the last year’s plus-sized flagship. We will wait and see.
