Samsung s Galaxy Note 4 is expected to launch in the first week of September much before the launch of the Apple iPhone 6. While Samsung has traditionally launched its Galaxy phablets at IFA in Berlin, this year it could be at a pre-IFA even on September 3, Korea Times reports. Here are the top five features expected on the Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

The publication cites a source as saying, The Note 4 will be the first smartphone to incorporate an ultraviolet sensor. The sensor can measure UV radiation and offer index levels to Note 4 users inside the ‘S Health’ application, he adds. This is in line with earlier reports that claim the phablet will boast a host of sensors.
While we are just getting to see smartphones featuring a fingerprint scanner as a security feature, Samsung could take things a step forward. The Galaxy Note 4 is expected to boast an eye scanner. While it is not clear how Samsung plans on utilizing this feature, these rumors have persisted since before the launch of the Galaxy S5.
Quad HD display
The Galaxy Note phablets have always featured some of the best displays, and it is no different this time around. The Galaxy Note 4 will be the latest to join the Quad HD club after the LG G3 and the Oppo Find 7, which boast displays with four times the resolution of HD displays and nearly two times that of full HD displays.
64 bit processor
This is one rumor we have been hearing of for quite a while now. While Samsung gave the Galaxy S5 a skip, the Galaxy Note 4 could be powered by a 64-bit processor. The company already fabricates the 64-bit A7 Apple uses in its iPhone 5S and iPad Air, and now it is likely to introduce a bumped up version of its own Exynos processor.
There have been a few rumors that Samsung is working on two variants of the phablet one with a flat display, and the other with curved display. Rather than the kind of display we see on the LG G Flex, the Galaxy Note 4 could boast a Youm-like screen that s bent over the smartphone s edges.
As mentioned above, the Galaxy Note 4 looks like a really advanced smartphone and a lot is riding on the device to help Samsung get over the current slump. Samsung is reeling from its worst quarter in two years, among increasing competition from Chinese and local brands that offer high-end specs and features at more than half the cost.
The competition will only grow stronger as Apple launches the iPhone 6 towards the end of next month. It is hardly surprising then that Samsung is looking at launching the Galaxy Note 4 as early as possible to give it a decent head start.
