Samsung will have a typically busy year in 2014 as the company continues to release handsets throughout the seasons. Sure, the Galaxy S5 may have arrived earlier in the year as the company's flagship device, but Samsung has plenty of other standout smartphones on the horizon. Filling the "standout" bracket nicely is the company's Galaxy Note series, currently wowing the tech world in its third iteration.

Launched at the end of 2013, the Galaxy Note 3 is a tour de force and reconfirms Samsung's status as not only the company to start the phablet trend, but the company to redefine it with every new Note. With stunning software, S Pen functionality, and no nonsense looks, the Note 3 is the king of the large screen phone. This year Samsung will up the ante further with the Galaxy Note 4, a handset that is likely to arrive in October or November.

We are still at the early stages, but we are starting to find out more about one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. According to reputable Samsung know it all, SamMobile, the Note 4 will come with a slew of new features to boost its business and leisure credentials further. The new features reported to be heading to the Note will be:

Swipe to launch Motion Launcher Similar to the Motion Launch found on the HTC One M8, this feature will allow users to input gestures and swipes to unlock the phone to specific apps, such as photos or web.

Aqua Capture Though details are scarce it seems the Galaxy Note 4 will follow suit from the Galaxy S4 Active and use. Aqua Capture to take photos underwater.

Multi Network for Booster We presume this feature will be similar to the Download Booster on the Galaxy S5, giving users extra speed by allowing them to use both LTE and Wi-Fi at the same time.

Smart Fingerprint This feature will take Samsung's fingerprint technology to the next level and allow different input commands on the sensor.

Of course, none of these features are nailed on, and we do not know to what degree they will work. For example, Smart Fingerprint is particularly vague, so hopefully we will get a clearer picture of what the Galaxy Note 4 will have as the weeks and months go by.
