The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will feature a Quad HD display with a resolution to match the LG G3, and a fingerprint scanner for improved security.
Notorious and often reliable smartphone leaker Evan Blass, through his EvLeaks Twitter account, published a screenshot of a list of application package file names claimed to be from the upcoming handset.
One file is called “SStudio_WQHD_K.apk”, which suggests the Galaxy Note 4 will have a WQHD resolution, which is 2560 x 1440 and the same as the LG G3 - this means many more pixels than any previous Samsung, including the Galaxy S5.
Another file name is “FingerprintService.apk” which strongly suggests the Note 4 will have a fingerprint scanner - just like the Galaxy S5. Likely placed on the phone’s home button, the scanner provides an alternative to using a password or PIN to unlock it.
Other APK names made links to Samsung software regulars, like S Health and S Music.
Expected to be announced at the IFA technology trade show in Berlin in September, the Galaxy Note 4 is thought to have a retinal eye scanner - another alternative unlocking method - and an ultraviolet light sensor, which will warn users of harmful UV light on sunny days.
