Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy Note 4 specs seeing as though its current flagship handset, the S5 is not doing too well several months after its release. The handset did get off to a very good start, but as time has gone by those sales have started to slow, and so Samsung needs to get it right with the upcoming phablet.
The functionality of this larger handset is very important to get right, and looking at the Galaxy Note 4 APK files for apps we get a good clue as what to expect. A sequence of .apk extensions has been leaked by Evleaks, which you can see in the tweet embedded below.
From what we can see the Note 4 could come with a QHD display, which is seen in one of the extensions, but it is the possibility that the phablet could support Oculus Rift with its virtual reality capabilities that has us most excited.

That’s not all we can look forward to, as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 successor is expected to come with improved security features, such as a finger print scanner. The FingerprintService.apk extension seems to indicate this and only seems to back up a previous rumor suggesting the same.
There is one more rumored Galaxy Note 4 feature that needs to be mentioned because it could go head-to-head with the iPhone 6 with its upcoming iOS 8 health features, and that is the S Health app, which is indicated in the SHealth3_5.apk extension.
Just remember that @evleaks has a mixed track record when it comes to leaked information, and so we should just take this rumor for what it is. However, looking at the above features, they are not too far-fetched and so we could be looking at the real deal.
