Optical Image Stabilization coming to the rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

Optical Image Stabilization coming to the rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
We've shown you a video showing off the Optical Image Stabilization technology on the Nokia Lumia 928. The clip displayed a video taken by the phone while it was attached to a remote control copter. Instead of jumping all over the place, you would have thought that the smooth video was filmed using a tripod. Yes, these days there is some type of stabilization built into a camera, but OIS deals with stability issues right at the lens.

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.

2009 - February Nokia released N86 with Amoled screen. Samsung copied and announced first Lagaxy S with Amoled. Who is copying now?

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.

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)" eh? "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." http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s4_i9500_vs_i9505-review-930p2.php 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

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?

first NFC phone made by Nokia, and can you link where you got that data from?

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/Motorola There is also Ericson http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ericsson

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?

Hey this motherboard also copied the Xpeira Z because its waterproof and dust resistant. http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/ASRock-Z87-Waterproof_1.jpg

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" Whats now?

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?!

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.

Not really, they keep adding stuff to their devices like the health related stuff or the new camera modes
