Samsung’s replacement for the Galaxy S3, aptly named the Galaxy S4, is the most rumoured and talked about tech device at the moment. With the Mobile World Conference happening next week and many flagships from others brands already on the market, Samsung will get the stage all to itself to show off the S4. We have been hearing a bunch of rumours recently, and the latest is regarding a feature that is heading to the upcoming smartphone.
The latest feature rumoured to be landing on the software set on the Galaxy S4 is called Samsung Orb, a new camera feature. For those who are familiar with Photo Sphere found on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean will recognize Samsung Orb as it is a very similar feature, and in fact seems to be modelled on Android’s camera feature.
Of course Samsung’s Galaxy S4 will be running the latest version of Google Android, but the Korean company seems to have opted for creating its own Photo Sphere like experience and rebranding it as Samsung Orb. The feature works by giving a 360 degree panorama photos on the Galaxy S4 camera, with the software doing all the hard work as you merely move your camera around. The Galaxy S4 is rumoured to be carrying a 13-megapixel rear snapper.
Early reports suggest that Samsung Orb works better than Google’s Photo Sphere, so we are really excited to see it in action for ourselves. However, we will of course have to wait because Samsung is still keeping quiet about when the Galaxy S4 will land, despite the fact we are 100% sure it will arrive soon. Reports are now gathering pace saying the smartphone will arrive mid-March.
