Samsung’s next Galaxy Note will be adorned by an astounding 13MP camera as revealed by an image in Picasa Web albums. The image flaunts a resolution of 2322 x 4128 pixels, indicating a 16:9 capturing mode.
So, the Galaxy Note 3’s camera will be similar to that of the Galaxy S4, which has been noted for its amazing camera performance. To detail, the Note 3 will feature an F/2.2 aperture and 31mm lens. The device will likely feature Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology, a feature that curbs motion-induced blurs while capturing photos or recording videos.
The leaked image seems to add some weight to earlier rumors about the Galaxy Note 3’s high-end camera features. An earlier report from ETNews conveyed that the Note 3 may also have a 3x optical zoom provided the device does not detract from its slim design. It even said that users may be able to edit images using the S Pen.
The Note 3’s rumored specifications include a 5.7-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 3, 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 3,500mAh battery, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage, and of course the S Pen. It is unclear whether the device will feature the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or the yet-to-launch Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
The specs of the Galaxy Camera are enough to demonstrate Samsung’s expertise in camera technology for Android-based devices. The tech giant seems to be leveraging the impact of smartphone cameras on consumers, given that more and more people are using smartphones as their main camera.
The Galaxy Note 3 has been rumored for a September release at the 2013 IFA event in Berlin. However, Samsung’s June 20th London event has some surprises, one of which could be the Note 3.
