TechRadar‘s rundown of all the Galaxy Note 4 rumors lists some impressive specs. The 5.9-inch display is rumored to be PLS LCD, rather than a super AMOLED screen.

Additional rumored specs include 4GB RAM, a 16 MP or 20MP camera sensor, and a quad HD display (aka 2K display.) It is also rumored to be waterproof or water resistant.

Interesting features of the rumored Note 4 device include a new level of S Pen functionality, which would let users write devices on the screen to open apps or make calls. A person could write “call mom” on the screen to call their mother, for example.

GSM Arena adds:

“In addition to the Galaxy S5 sensors, it will also add a UV sensor, presumably so that the S Health app can track your sun exposure.”

PC Advisor notes that the Galaxy Note 4 may have a “three-sided” display. This would allow messages to be read from an angle. In an interview with Bloomberg, Samsung’s executive VP of mobile Lee Young Hee told reporters that the Note 4 will be aimed at those with deep pocketbooks. Lee said:

“We are targeting consumers who want more professional use and tend to be willing to pay more for handsets.”
