New rumours indicate that Samsung’s next mobile phone could have a dedicated camera button.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be just around the corner, though this hasn’t stopped more reports speculating on what the device could bring.
According to SamMobile, the button won’t be a standard feature but will have an invisible sensor built into the bottom right of the phone, which you can then just tap to take a photo.
This ‘Side Touch’ could have some limitations though as, according to the source, the feature won’t work in portrait mode or when capturing video. SamMobile’s report also supports another rumour that has been doing the rounds over the past few weeks – that the flagship will bring a 16-megapixel camera and will be able shoot 4K UHD video at 30fps.
SamMobile also listed a number of features that are expected to be included in the Samsung flagship’s camera mode. Some of the new ones, claimed to be on the handset, are a 3D Tour Shot – to create interactive virtual tours – and Continuous Shot, which takes numerous photos in quick succession.
