Samsung Galaxy Note III may support 4K video recording

Samsung Galaxy Note III may support 4K video recording
The big push in TVs right now is towards 4K Ultra HD. Of course, it's hard to get people to buy a 4K TV if there isn't that much media that can be viewed on said TV. There are of course 4K Blu Ray movies coming out, but it is always nice if you can create your own content for your new 4K TV. Maybe that would mean buying a fancy new camera, or if rumors are true, it will mean buying a Samsung Galaxy Note III.

The Korea Economic Daily has reported that the Galaxy Note III will let users record video at 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels), and it may also offer 24-bit/192KHz music playback. Obviously, the 24-bit/192KHz music playback could be a very nice feature for the audiophiles out there, but it's unclear how useful it will be for users to record 4K video. 

Not only would most users be unlikely to have a 4K TV to watch said videos, a 4K video would take up quite a lot of space, and Samsung mobile devices already have a lot of their internal storage taken up by the TouchWiz bloat. We're sure that 4K video recording will make its way to mobile devices eventually, but this might be jumping the gun a bit.

1080p recording with 60fps would had been a more realistic and better option than 4k!

Nobody said there won't be 60fps, this particular rumor only comments on 4k. Not sure 60fps makes a difference though, most ppl. don't see more than like 40 frames per second. Also think that the longest theoretical shutter time can only be 1/60s, that doesn't let through enough light any time the Sun is covered in cloud or in worse conditions. A small sensor can take 8 sharp MPs @ 30FPS, but 60 frames would not look good even at 2MP due to light restrictions.

Only console peasants should say such a thing. People can see the difference between 60 FPS and 120 FPS. Stop spreading random crap spewed from your mind without facts as well. It all depends on the hardware and the size of the camera sensor's pixels you peasant. PC Master Race.

OhMY.. Have you seen the well-praised internal of galaxy s4? Haha stupid Hater, compare it to HtC one's and maybe others as well, and you'll see how neat and excellent sammy engg team is.
Everyone is jealous on samsung's marketing why?? Because no other manufacturers can make a commercial that will showcase multiple fun, excellent and useful features of A REAL SMARTphone ;)) Dump all your lowlight features, aluminum features etc etc ;) Peace

Yes cause a company products are considered REAL and GREAT only if it has great marketing. Otherwise its s**t according to you.Obviously you are a Samsung sheep and any comment you make is considered spam. On the other hand Samsung smartphones are great and above all great value for money. Only issue Samsung has is for using the plastic it uses which makes the phone look kinda cheap compared to its competitors.

You know, it's a nice feature to have, but the good thing is that you won't have to use it. I kind of doubt they'll set the camera to 4k automatically, most likely "just" 1080p for the default setting. Eventually it will be nice though

Too many exaggerated people here. Does it mean that if samsung gave 4k option to your mobile, you are always required to use it or lower res video options are extinguished? Duhhh brain must be used ;)

I know some people are just Samsung haters. There is nothing wrong with having the ability to record 4k. More future proof... When ultra HD becomes popular you wish your phone could record at 4k.

Who knows what Samsung is up to. Perhaps there will be a different back cover that increases storage up to 1TB? External flash memory can take very little space. Just look how small and thin MicroSD is. You can even squeeze one in between you back cover and phone.

4K and 9 gb internal! Samsung should go with 128 gb like Iphone 5s at least.

Yep like the did with xperia Z compared to S4. Ohh wait.. Sony doesnt know how to make a good camera in a phone. Its a fact. Compare any Sony phone to its competitor and it has worse camera. But we can only hope that Z1 will have that wow camera that Sony has been doing on real cameras and DSLR's for years now.

Since all geek sheeps fanboys like to youse phone specs as a di-ck contest I guess iPhone's 5S rumoured 120fps will blow your mind..

Note III is coming in many versions just like S4, so you can easily choose your Note whichever you want with 4K, 1080, etc...

Before criticizing others, please tell us one innovating thing you have done in your entire lifetime.

Ever since I jumped ship to Android and the S4 reeled me I feel that I am hooked on Samsung products. Kind of anxious to see what this device has in store and it may be my next device.
