The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with the company's Exynos chip has already wowed us today, but we have some more information about another part of the handset that could also be very good. We reported way back in June that Samsung would focus on the camera on the Galaxy Note 4 and look to make it a standout feature of the handset, or as we put it then: "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." Now hugely reliable Samsung-centric tipster SamMobile has revealed that the Note 4 will be packing a stunning camera package. The smartphone will sport a Sony made IMX240 sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS), while it will also get support for shooting UHD (3840×2160) video at 30 FPS, on the front Samsung will use a 3.7 megapixel lens. Both front and back will be able to capture video in WQHD (2560×1440) resolution. No camera is complete (stellar hardware or not) without some very good software, and Samsung has been getting better on this front and has among the best camera modules, especially on Android. A new feature added to the Galaxy Note 4 will be called Side Touch, giving the user the ability to simply tap the side bezel to take a photo, replacing the need of a physical button. While exploring each facet of the camera app on the Note 4 would take too long, you can check out the full feature list below.
