Samsung Galaxy Note III to come with a new S Orb camera feature?
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is on track to arrive on store shelves across the globe this month, and the device comes with a totally reimagined camera app carrying the interface of the dedicated Samsung Galaxy Camera. And while the Galaxy S4 does feature a “360 Photo” feature Samsung is rumored to have tried to further boost that function in an S Orb feature it develops.

The S Orb feature which basically sounds like it will stitch images into 360-degree guided panoramic shots should debut on the Samsung Galaxy Note III, according to Android Geeks. This will allegedly be one of the software highlights of the third-generation Samsung phablet.

The S Orb name definitely seems credible as Samsung has been on a roll with apps like S Health, S Calendar and so on. However reinventing the bicycle does not seem like the kind of innovation that Samsung would really want - after all Google’s 4.2 Jelly Bean added the panoramic shot feature long ago. Plus, once again, that feature is indeed available on the Galaxy S4 under the “360 Photo” name.

So take this with a grain of salt, it’s possible that Samsung enriches that panoramic photo capture with some of its software flare, but it’s far from certain.

You are clearly a troll who's statements are less to carry merit and facts but rather simply to annoy. Regardless, his statement is entirely logical considering they are the best in their respective platforms. If you fail to see that then you may want to open your mind to the world around you. The prodigious lack of respect for not only facts, but other's opinions as well, clearly shows your lack of tact and grace in life.

I can't help but think, what if Samsung releases two versions of their phones or flagships. One Android and the other one Tizen, and there's a catch...all the 'S' apps won't be available on the Android version any longer because Tizen is their own.

I am happy with my Galaxy Note II; no need to upgrade. Unless, of course, the Galaxy Note III is designed with a 6.3" screen, at least a 1.5Ghz Octo-Core processor, 4GB of RAM, integrated GPU with it's own dedicated memory, at least a 16MP (or 12UltraPixel will do) Main (rear) Camera and a 2.3MP Front Facing Camera, USB 3.0 port (at least one) and MicroSD slot - must have MicroSD!!! Otherwise, I'll wait for Galaxy Note IV!

Then wait, if we compare the Note to the SII and the NoteII to the SIII, and now the upcoming Note III to the S4 it's easy to guess what we will see on the Note III : - Exynos octacore processor, overclocked when compared to the S4 (1.8GHz) - Bigger screen, maybe around 6" with a thin bezel, 1080p, probably pentile (or maybe not) - Bigger battery, around 3500 or maybe 4000 mah - 13 MP camera with some new camera features - Android 5.0 KLP with some new SPEN features and "S", or "Smart" or "Air" features that will come later to the S4 - The usual "er" : Thinner, Lighter, Narrower... - New and improved Spen The Note lineup was made for those who want a "Phablet", but was never meant to overshadow the S lineup witch is still for Samsung their flagship smartphone lineup.

I agree. I'll gladly wait for that!!

I think you're on for the most part. Two things, though. The Note 2 isn't pentile even though it has an atypical RGB matrix, so I would say there's a good chance the Note 3 won't be pentile either. Also, no matter how much they thin the side bezels, there's no possible way a 5.9"+ screen Note 3 will be narrower than the Note 2. The only way to achieve that would be to change the aspect ratio like they did with from the original Note & highly doubt that's gonna happen. It is very likely that it will thinner & lighter, though. Good comment.

Wacom's 1080p support will come at a hefty expect the Note 3 to be priced North of what the Note 2's intro price. This phone screams PREMIUM.

Premium for sure, but in regards to price, not necessarily. Even if the retail price goes higher, which it may not, I highly doubt the U.S. carriers would dare go above the $299 on contract price. I can only imagine that seriously hurting sales.

samsung seems to want to start its own identity now. they're trying to innovate the panorama mode which is from sony. trying to leave the ugly past behind with the success they have now.

Many companies copy the competition before they learn to branch off on their own. Samsung appears to finally be exploring its own waters instead of making someone else's idea with their own twist.
