According to the report, the Galaxy Note 4 will have a 16MP Sony IMX240 camera sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS). The phone will also include support for recording UltraHD (3840×2160) video. In addition, the report states that Samsung is testing a new type of shutter button referred to as “Side Touch.” This would let users to touch the bottom right side of the Note 4, right where a physical camera button would normally be located and use a sensor to snap a photo. The Side Touch feature is expected to be incompatible with portrait mode, Easy Mode and video capture.

The Galaxy Note 4 will also take care of your selfie needs with a 3.7 MP front-facing camera that is capable of capturing images and video in WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), said the report.  Samsung is also adding three modes to spruce up your selfies. First one is wide-angle mode that will allow you to fit more people into the frame. The second one is a hands-free self-portrait capturing mode that takes a picture when a subject winks or smiles at the camera. Lastly, there is a “Selfie Alarm”that utilizes phone’s rear-facing camera to automatically take a photo after detecting and focusing on a person’s face.

Moreover, the camera will also create a GIF file by clubbing multiple images, a feature we saw on the Asus Zenfone series. Other specs include various filters like Grey-scale, Sepia, Negative, Outline, Watercolour, Monochrome, Sketch and so on. Finally,  a handful of features similar to the Galaxy S5, like Live HDR and Fast Auto-Focus are also coming to the Note 4, added the report.

Earlier this month photos of the Galaxy Note 4 had leaked showing a faux leather back similar to the Galaxy Note 3. Also, the phone was listed with  5.7″ Quad HD Super AMOLED screen and 4gB RAM.
