Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 3 photosphere sample unearthed
UPDATE: The source Picasa profile is already down.
A photosphere sample, allegedly snapped with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, has been spotted on the Picasa profile belonging to a T-Mobile USA employee, and though it went dark for a few hours, it's visible once again – so do make haste to see the truly high quality sphere before it's taken down.
According to the accompanying (though easily manipulable) EXIF data sheet, the shots were taken with the camera unit of a handset carrying a model number SM-N900T, a device we know to be the LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Obviously, do carry in mind that these are unconfirmed at best, and could be using early/prototype software and hardware – so approach this in an appropriately cautious manner. That being said, it's great to see that Samsung will finally support the now vastly improved PhotoSphere mode (Sammy is calling it S Orb) found on devices running stock Android 4.2 and above.
Just a day bars the moment the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will get officially sanctioned to see the light of day, so it's only natural that we see a mounting spree of snippets of information on all things Note 3. We've had a pretty decent idea of what internals to expect from Samsung's next phablet all along, though a key piece to the puzzle had been missing for a while – the actual looks of the device. With that now behind us, we've pretty much exhausted the usual rumor cycle, though it refuses to go without one last scoop, and it appears that the aforementioned 360-degree panoramic snap is it.
So, all bets are in, and there's only one question: how close to the truth will the rumors end up being? Do you expect a surprise out of the blue?
