After hearing that the release date of the Galaxy Note 4 would be set at the beginning of September, today we learn more about the internal structure of the phablette. The Galaxy Note 4 incorporate an ultraviolet sensor.

Earlier this year, Samsung has equipped its Galaxy S5 a rate monitor on the back cover, but it seems that Koreans intend to further develop the field of health in its smartphones with the new UV sensor. The publication says the new sensor will be able to determine the solar radiation, and determine if it has reached a harmful level, while offering recommendations based on it. This basically means that Note 4 will be able to tell you if you need to protect yourself from the sun.

Of course, the new UV sensor is integrated into the S Health application, just like the S5 Galaxy heart rate sensor or even the pedometer. Although it is not yet clear where the UV sensor will be located, it is speculated that it will use to address the smartphone to the sun at an angle of 60 degrees, and solar radiation will be automatically classified into different categories: low (index 0-2), moderate (index 3-5), high (index 6-7), very high (index 8-10) and extreme (index 10-12).

If previous rumor surrounding the Galaxy Note 4 is accurate, it would offer the same Super AMOLED 5.7-inch display that the current Galaxy Note 3, but it would have a much better resolution, since it is announced as a Quad HD display, 2560 x 1440 pixels. In addition to this, under the hood be found 3GB RAM, a 16 megapixel main camera with autofocus phase detection and 4K video recording, and Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor.

The industry sources indicate that Samsung may release the Note 4 in two versions: one with a standard flat screen and another with a flexible AMOLED screen.
