Leaked APK list of Galaxy Note 4 confirms QHD display and fingerprint scanner


With IFA fast approaching, leaks of Samsung’s upcoming phablet — the Galaxy Note 4 — are flowing in thick and fast.

Today’s leak comes courtesy of @evleaks, who has posted an image that lists some of the APKs that would be pre-loaded on the device.

The two most interesting APKs in the list are the “FingerprintService.apk” and “SStudio_WQHD_k.apk”. The former confirms that the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a fingerprint scanner as seen on the Galaxy S5. The latter confirms that the device will indeed sport an AMOLED display with WQHD resolution.


Rumors about the Note 4 repeatedly mention the presence of a fingerprint scanner and a WQHD display and this image from @evleaks adds further credence to them.

The name of other APKs in the list are not particularly exciting and most of these apps are already present on the Galaxy S5. The “SmartSelfShot.apk” does indicate that Samsung will be including a new mode on its Camera app for taking selfies. The S Health APK name indicates that a new version of the app, featuring integration with the UV sensor, will also be pre-loaded on the Note 4.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 4 at IFA in early September.
