Optical Image Stabilization coming to the rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
Now, Samsung is rumored to be looking to add such technology to the camera on the back of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The device is still unannounced, but will be unveiled at IFA Berlin in September according to Samsung's mobile chief J.K. Shin, who should know. The buzz around the water cooler is that the Korean based OEM was also looking at adding 3X optical zoom to the phablet's rear camera, but was forced to reconsider because of the thickness that would have been added to the device.
Samsung offers its own line of cameras, including the Android powered Samsung Galaxy Camera which could help blur the line between a stand alone snapper and the camera on one of its smartphones. The tech titan is expected to soon introduce a camera-centric model of its Android flagship handset, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. The camera on back of the unit is expected to be equipped with a 16MP sensor and offer a 10X optical zoom. Samsung is looking to bolster the camera on its handsets to challenge Nokia which has been heavily promoting the low-light picture taking prowess of the cameras on its latest Nokia Lumia models.

Lol. This is the worst and lamest logic I have ever seen.

2009 - February Nokia released N86 with Amoled screen. Samsung copied and announced first Lagaxy S with Amoled.
Who is copying now?
35. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
I am telling him that who is copying.
Nokia was the first to use super sensitive touch, OIS, Amoled and wireless charging

The PS4 was announced first. The xbox one shares some of the features that the ps4 has like playing games. Copycat.
People that say Company are copycats are retards, get over yourselfs already every company copies every other company to beat them and make their products more appealing. That is competition not copying.
41. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
So Samsung is copying a product that where not even great sellers? Then every company is copying IBM for making a smartphone, or Motorola for making a phone, I see people complaining about lack of good cameras on android and when a company decides to add a good camera the they are a "copy cat" but then probably Nokia copied android for adding NFC to a smartphone or making big screens or for using dual core, or what about that "action shot" that looks similar to "drama shot"?

cpu's are being made by "outside" manufacturers (except exynos which, as gsmeran has just prooved is nothing extraoridanry compared to snap 600). They're just using parts, like lenovo, pentagram, zte and bunch of others. They take parts and put them together. Then adding android and voila, you've got a phone.
Nokia has invented most of mobile technology currently used in cellphones. That's the difference.

"(except exynos which, as gsmeran has just prooved is nothing extraoridanry compared to snap 600)"
"As far as synthethic benchmarks are concerned there isn't too much of a difference between the Octa and Snapdragon 600 versions of Samsung's best droid yet. WE SUSPECT THIS IS ON PURPOSE - Samsung wanted to guarantee that devs can expect the exact same level of performance form the Galaxy S4, regardless of which version the user has. And they've done an excellent job. But this isn't the best that Cortex-A15 in the Exynos chipset is capable of - we might have to wait until the Galaxy Note III to get a TRUE FEEL FOR ITS PERFOMANCE."
And you seem to forget than the S600 is clocked at 1.9GHz compared to 1.6GHz for the Octa, yet it managed to score slightly higher benchmarks.

and we have not an ordinary bomb but nuclear in our pockets. 2 days ago there war another explosion of SGS3 so do not expect anything else from exynos
110. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Nokia invented one fraction of mobile tech used on current smartphones,also as far as CDMA phones go its Motorola not Nokia... You know you can literally say moist Nokia phones are also a bunch of parts?
118. tashreef (Posts: 476; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
first NFC phone made by Nokia, and can you link where you got that data from?
120. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
That's why I used the word smartphone, the actual NFC functionality everyone craves came from smartphones not phones, care to show a Nokia smartphone with NFC before the nexus?
And you want sources?
Motorola's involvement in cellphonehttp://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki
There is also Ericson
147. user996 (Posts: 212; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
written without any thinking. and nokia was first with NFC
100. Klevis88 (Posts: 12; Member since: 15 May 2013)
That is so desperate. But I guess screen sizes is the only thing Samsung can innovate.
39. SleepingOz (unregistered)
Because nokia invented OIS and super sensitive screen and Sony invented waterproof phone, right?
40. HDShatter (Posts: 1021; Member since: 17 Jan 2013)
Hey this motherboard also copied the Xpeira Z because its waterproof and dust resistant.
44. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
I am just stating all these facts because of his lame attempts to bash Nokia. He said,
"2011 Samsung GT-N7000 5.3 inches - nokia copycat- on 2014 nokia phablet"
49. SleepingOz (unregistered)
What now? Well, based on your logic, nokia copied drama shot from Samsung. And every smartphone oem copied IBM. lol
64. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
Everybody is copying each other. Thats all.
74. SleepingOz (unregistered)
Yet you're the one calling Samsung a copycat.
Ah, such an hypocrite, aren't you?!
101. Klevis88 (Posts: 12; Member since: 15 May 2013)
What are these innovations that Samsung has introduced? Samsung smartphones have the same capabilities with the Chinese ones. Very small difference. It is not hard to put 2 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon S600 in a smartphone. It is hard on the other hand to produce new microphones that eliminate all distortion, OIS, Puremotion HD+ so that the refresh rate of the screen is 60Hz, new antennas etc. Samsung is just an assembler like Foxcon, they assemble parts together and put on it the software of another company.
111. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Not really, they keep adding stuff to their devices like the health related stuff or the new camera modes
122. taikucing (unregistered)
"Samsung is just an assembler like Foxcon, they assemble parts together and put on it the software of another company."
samsung makes its own CPU, RAM, storage, AMOLED screen, PCB, case, etc. More than 90% of samsung phone's parts are made in house.
Have you ever heard... Samsung GDDR5 memory? Or Samsung SSD? Samsung Harddisk?
Or have you ever heard a ship or an excavator made by samsung? Samsung heavy industries? Samsung medical equipment? Telco equipment? Precision instruments? SGR-A1 robot? air conditioner? wash machine?
Bi**h please, don't compare samsung to foxconn. They both are electronics manufacturers, but Samsung is in different league.
I'm not a Samsung fanboy. But I must tell you the truth. Samsung Group is like Fuji heavy industries + Foxconn + Intel + sharp + nokia + etc.

"It is not hard to put 2 GB of RAM"
Thank to Samsung Semiconductor Global! They are the one who develop and produce Mobile DRAM and MPCs, which are used on almost all smartphones right now!
"Samsung is just an assembler like Foxcon, they assemble parts together and put on it the software of another company."
LMAO! Really?! First of all, amoled have always had higher refresh rate than LCD.
Have you ever wonder where nokia buy their amoled panels? Yeah, from Samsung! Samsung are the one that spend the most money on their R&D department among smartphone oems, every year. Going as far as trashing a football field of Amoled panel in order to achieve HD resolution. Again, thank to that, nokia is now able to put amoled hd panels on their phones. Puremotion HD+ is basically just a gimmicky rebranding term! Apply a light filter and call it CBD innovation!

You are likely the biggest fuktard I have ever seen on the internet.

An airplane must have been copied from a bird because it has wings hurrrrr

94. HouTexan (Posts: 386; Member since: 08 Jan 2012)
Lmao, don't mind them. You can tell they are just jealous that the Note 3 super phone will be King of the Hill, again. EVERY fking thing is a copy.
127. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
And if I said Nokia was the first to produce camera phone. From that day everyone is copying, period.
126. taikucing (unregistered)
yeah, car manufacturers copy each other technology because they have 4 wheels, steering wheel, engine, mirrors, transmission, brakes, lamps. Why don't you bash car manufacturers?
135. TheBitterTruth (unregistered)
I am not against copycat thingy. Look who started first.
Copying features is something else.
But Copying the dimensions and sizes is something else. Narrow minded fanboys.

no reason. samsung built its strenght on copying from apple. no need to hate. just a fact,
14. belovedson (Posts: 832; Member since: 30 Nov 2010)
You guys need to lighten up. Apple copied xerox... Nokia copied someone else.
Samsung is copying something that works and making it better. Not sure why the hate?
Is obviously working. The history is Sony and HTC has been a different story
Many of us are waiting for the note three. This even makes it more appealing to any other phone for this year
18. user996 (Posts: 212; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
90% of today's smartphone tech is patent of nokia. first smarthone was nokia. first 3G phone was nokia. first phone with camera was nokia. fisrt phone with wifi chip was nokia and so on how many you want me to count. where was samsung back then simply samsung didn't know what smartphone was. even phone overal
31. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
First smartphone was IBM, and can you link where you got that data from?
154. user996 (Posts: 212; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
did you produce one? or how you know that was first? first OS on a phone was symbian which you hate as i guess i'm using symbian for more than 8 years and on 128mb ram it could run more apps (and there was even half of the ram) than any of your plastic galaxys
156. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Its called reading, you should try it sometime
157. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
Also wtf? You say o hate symbian? I've had more symbian based phones that you by a long shot, symbian was so advanced Nokia killed it

And samsung owns the largest number off mobile patents worldwide..
80. maccess (Posts: 719; Member since: 16 Jan 2013)
sorry the first phone with camera was made by sharp.. it was J-SH04 release in the early 2001..
153. user996 (Posts: 212; Member since: 25 Feb 2013)
ask to people who knows about that device
15. Rashh (Posts: 2; Member since: 09 May 2013)
Remember when this was called competing? now it's called "copying", thanks to Apple's plans.
16. ebubekir26 (Posts: 312; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
what do you mean ? if you look at it that way, than every company copied each other..
let's call it : learning from another company.
