Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera to be 8 times brighter than current models?
A published report on Sunday says that Samsung is working on a 13MP camera for next year's models that will take outstanding pictures in low-light conditions. After all, that is the battlefield on where the smartphone camera wars are being played out. In addition, besides being able to take great snapshots in low light, the new camera will contain an "anti-shake" feature that will keep photos and videos looking as though they were taken using a tripod.

The new camera sensor will be eight times brighter than the current one employed by Samsung. And just as impressive, the anti-shake feature can correct an angular error of up to 1.5°. Current digital cameras can only fix errors of up to 0.7°. The new camera sensor will start production early next year and we will probably see it in the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

This could be the vastly improved camera sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4

first it's not cheap plastic , it's polycarbonate.. second i choose removable plastic back cover for removable battery and sd card over any aluminium phone with seal battery and memory..

Absolutely agree.
HTC , Sony, LG , Nokia.....tried to follow Apple with non-swappable battery and SD, for the high-end devices. And they are almost dead now. This "premium design" BS iHypnosis , will not help them, at all.
They should learn, that ONLY Apple owns the zombies and the media, and only they can sell shining crap with logo. If they don't wanna learn, Samsung will sweep them out of the market,

BTW HTC one chosen as the best smart phone of 2013. Samsung got only one of the best brand of this year but not the best phone of 2013.

you do realise polycarbonate and plastic are the same thing right? Polycarbonate is the scientific name, and plastic is in layman's term (colloquial)

polycarbonate is only one type of plastic!! not all!. it should not be a blanket term.

I think is too early to start propagating this type of news, they just released note 3, let them give their current flagships some time to dominate the market before telling its customers that their will be need to upgrade to S5 and note 4 respectively.
Moreover, doing this will make other manufacturers get prepared, the best thing would be to storm every other manufactures by surprise, my view though...

I'm beginning to think that Samsung is making their S-series the "Call Of Duty" of phones... only minor tweaks but more of the same every year...

it's the same with other company too.. what the difference between your xperia z to z1?? only camera bump from 13mp - 20.7mp.. same model and screen size and update processor.. what the difference between galaxy s3 to s4?? from 4.8 - 5 inch screen , from 8mp to 13mp camera , update processor and little bit change in design to make it even slimmer.. please kid your profile name didn't suit your trolling behaviour towards samsung..

Ha! So poking fun at something constitutes "trolling" now.

No, seriously, Samsung phones awesome. Their fans are humorless though.

I don't think so, Samsung damn well know they can't be lazy in 2014. The problem has always been they only have 2 high end devices and plenty of low end crap for the year since 2011, next year there will be the premium F series which sits above the S Series and possibly the Note series which will be a refreshing change, I want to see a new flagship dethrone the S series once and for all, the Note isn't really ready to be embraced by the masses. Also design 3.0 means a UI overhaul as well as the design all you Sony/Apple and HTC fanboys keep mocking. The move to metal and a facelifted design and a less bloated software experience with swifter updates and I can't see where these so called accusations of refusal to change will hold much merit. If anything, stock android is the UI that needs a total overhaul which has looked the same since 2011.

I'm not a fanboy, but... why 3GB of RAM and still lags????

Ohh, their TouchWiz ROM is not really optimized and the bloatware...

My question is WHY THE IPHONE DOESN'T HAVE BLOATWARE AND THE ANDROID PHONES HAS IT?? Why? I don't get it...

So have you actually used a Note 3 or are you basing your theory on John V, aka the notorious famed cheerleader for IOS. Because i can tell you that after using a live demo unit at the carphone warehouse the Note 3 did remarkably well with gaming, web browsing, opening multiple apps and excelled at multiview multitasking better than it's predecessor. However that being said, the GS4 does lag from time to time and my original G Note 1 has become incredibly unbearable since updating to 4.1.2.

My S4 runs without a frame rate hiccup 99 percent of the time but every now and then you'll see a slight stutter. It doesn't detract from anything but for a phone with its specifications there really shouldn't be any stutter.

it's touchwiz that makes the phone stutter not the spec.. but as far as i see , touchwiz on the note 3 much smoother , almost lag or stutter free.. i think samsung has done something with touchwiz on the note 3..

As I said earlier the phone runs smoothly 99 percent of the time but I don't think the problem was fixed with the Note 3. I've watched several reviews of the phone and I saw hiccups here and there.
