The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one of the most eagerly anticipated smartphones of 2014, which is no easy feat considering the device will land around the same time as a new iPhone. Samsung's phablet shares the limelight with the biggest selling device of them all and holds its own. The reason the Note 4 will do that is because it is the definitive phablet product and it is loaded with the very best specs. One of those specs has just become more of a certainty thanks to sources speaking to BGR.According to the report, Samsung will continue to explore its growing reputation as one of the best smartphone camera manufacturers by making the Note 4's camera among the best on the market. The company will apparently go all out to create one of the best camera models on any mobile device, and will make the snapper one of the Galaxy Note 4's standout features. However, to achieve that Samsung will reduce the megapixel count from what it has been using on recent flagships. The company has always taken the identical camera module from its S range and put into the following Note device, but this time it will be different. The current Galaxy S5 ships with a 13 megapixel rear camera, but the one heading for the Galaxy Note 4 is reported to be a 12 megapixel lens. Of course, that is a lower megapixel count, but the photographers out there (amateur or professional) will know that doesn't really matter. Samsung is toning down the lens in a bid to fit it into the Note 4?s reported ultra-slim chassis. The module will come with optical image stabilization and a host of other features from Samsung's current and to be announced software. The most interesting thing about this is that a source close to Samsung told me that the company is genuinely worried about the impact a phablet iPhone will have on the Note 4. Now this report suggests the camera will be what Samsung hopes is the handsets standout feature. There is no getting away from the fact that an iPhone phablet would be a huge success, simply because all iPhones are, but all iPhones also have good cameras. We would suggest that Samsung uses and markets the true standout feature of the Galaxy Note 4, the S Pen stylus and its related software. source: ET News
