If a report published in etnews is to be believed, Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy Note 3 is also going to feature an improved camera with Optical Image Stabilization technology just like Nokia Lumia 928.
Optical Image Stabilization technology, a technology that’s used in various cameras but also in some mobile devices to reduce image blur caused by motion when taking pictures and/or recording videos. In addition to OIS, the Galaxy Note 3 team has apparently also considered including 3x optical zoom capabilities in the phone’s camera, but it appears that it’s not a better option for the handset, as it would affect the thickness of the device.
Looks like Samsung, the company which itself has wide range of camera including Android powered Galaxy camera, is now looking to improve the camera and picture quality in its upcoming flagships devices in order to stand in line with HTC’s Ultrapixel and Nokia’s PureView technologies.
We are still treating this report as a rumour as there is no official word on it. We expect to hear something soon in this regard from the company. The flagship is scheduled to be announced in IFA Germany in September this year.
In related news we have heard that the company is also scheduled to announce a camera centric model of its Android flagship handset, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom for better camera experiences in next few months. The device is said to feature a 16-megapixel sensor and 10x optical zoom, but we’re unsure about its OIS capabilities at the moment.
