The fact that Samsung event scheduled for next month will be live-streamed on the company’s YouTube channel hints at big and important news. The invitation to Samsung Premiere 2013 event did not reveal too many details about the soon to be announced devices. However, it appears that one of the most likely candidates to be introduced to the world on June 20 is going to be the Galaxy Note III. The phablet appeared in AnTuTu benchmark system a few times suggesting imminent official presentation.
What we know about Samsung Galaxy Note III
What exactly do we know, or we think we know, about the Samsung Galaxy Note III? The device is believed to be equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera, much like the one used in the Galaxy S4, but featuring some interesting enhancements. Korean website ET News claims that the Note III will include anti-shake technology, optical image stabilization, as well as “shutter functions”. This information supposedly comes from “industry insiders”, but has not been confirmed by the company so far. Also, it appears that Samsung is considering optical zoom, but may drop the idea after all, since it would mean significant increase in the phone’s thickness.
New camera features sound simply awesome and the rest of the specs are exactly what you would have expected from a device of Galaxy Note III class. That is, assuming that they turn out to be true. The phone is rumored to sport a 1080p display and a 1.6 GHz processor. The model destined for the US will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. The Galaxy Note III will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and, of course, will be working with an S Pen with newly upgraded abilities.
