The Samsung’s Note must offer pro-facilities such as removable battery and expandable memory, and with a unibody finish akin to the HTC One M8 was never been in the card, but for those who’ve bored with the plastic-finish, the Note 4’s outer shell offers a touch of finesse.


Similarities are there in the last year’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note, and it’s no surprise that the Galaxy Note 4’s display is also a bit of a bump.

According to Samsung, this Smart OIS will “counter-balance camera shake and automatically extend exposure time in dark settings.” The camera on it is equipped with a  Sony IMX240 camera sensor with optical image stabilization and dual-LED flash. The module is the same as that of the one on the Galaxy S5 LTE-A.

Notably, the rear-facing camera is capable of capturing 4K UHD videos at 30fps.
