The Galaxy Note 4's 3.7-megapixel front camera offers a default 90-degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle to help users capture better selfies.

New Delhi: Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 4 phablet, the successor to the Galaxy Note 3, at its event in Berlin. The Galaxy Note 4 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) Super AMOLED display. The new Note has a metal frame and soft-textured back cover.

The Galaxy Note 4 has a 16 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. Its 3.7 megapixel front camera is claimed to capture 60 per cent more light. The front camera offers a default 90-degree shooting angle and up to 120 degree wide angle to help users capture better selfies.

Samsung says the muti window feature in the Note 4 improves the multitasking experience. Samsung, in the Galaxy Note 4's S Pen, has doubled the pressure sensitivity from the Galaxy Note 3.

The S Pen in the Galaxy Note 4 can also work as a mouse cursor. The phone gets charged faster than its predecessor, and has low power consumption.

It weighs 176g and is 8.5mm thick. The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an improved fingerprint scanner. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

The Galaxy Note 4 will be available in Charcoal Black, Frost White, Bronze Gold, and Blossom Pink in global markets starting in October.

Phablets, a cross between a phone and a tablet, have been on a roll since late 2011 as tech-savvy consumers, particularly in Asia, devote more time browsing data-heavy Web pages and downloading media content.
