Among the four new shooting modes is Selfie Alarm, which will detect your face and snap a photo. It will reportedly allow users to take advantage of the superior camera on the rear of the device when taking selfies. Samsung is also said to be implementing “Wide Selfie” and "Create A GIF File" modes.
The Galaxy Note 4 will have a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera, a significant step up from the 2.1 megapixel sensor found on its predecessor. It will also bear a 16-megapixel Sony IMX240 camera, capable of shooting ultra HD video with 3840 × 2160 resolution at 30 frames per second. This will certainly come in handy in conjunction with the Selfie Alarm mode.
Samsung is also said to be including a side-mounted capacitive button for snapping photos, and a new gesture for accessing the camera when the screen is off.
The camera is one area that the Note 4 will see a range of improvements over its predecessor. The Galaxy Note 4 is expected to be released in September, so we will soon see what else Samsung has planned.
