A South Korean news website has reported that the upcoming Galaxy S5 will have a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization
NEW DELHI: As the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Note III flagship phablet nears, the tech grapevine seems to have turned their attention to the company’s other flagship smartphone Galaxy S4. Speculations have already started about the next-generation of Galaxy S4, most likely to be called Galaxy S5. A South Korean news website has reported that the upcoming Galaxy S5 will have a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization. This will be an upgrade from the 13MP camera module used in the Galaxy S4 and widely expected to also feature in the upcoming Galaxy Note III.
However, the report also says that the Galaxy Note III will not have optical image stabilization feature, contrary to popular rumours. The only Samsung phone to have this feature currently is the Galaxy S4 zoom, which is a cross between an Androidphone and a 16MP camera.
Samsung has also applied for patent of a metal-bodied design, which is rumoured to debut with the Galaxy S5. This handset is also said to have a flexible and shatterproof screen; a prototype of this screen was also showcased by the manufacturer earlier this year.
Currently, Nokia Lumia 1020, Lumia 925, Lumia 920, HTC One and LG G2 are the only phones that have optical image stabilization feature, which helps produce blur-free photos. The upcoming Sony Xperia Z1 (codenamed Honami) is also said to come with this feature.
A report by The Korea Economic Daily has said that the Galaxy Note III will be capable of recording movie-hall-quality 4K videos. Sony Xperia Z1 is also said to debut with this functionality. Both handsets are expected to be unveiled on September 4, the first day of IFA 2013 in Berlin.
South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics will unveil its new gadgetsmartwatch called Galaxy Gear at a Berlin Show on September 4, 2013.
The pictures of thesmartwatch are already circulating on the Internet, but Samsung is tight-lipped about its launch or its specifications.
The company is planning to launch its Galaxy Note 3 immediately after the show but the smartwatch is likely to be launched early next year.
The company has already submitted a patent application for the smartwatch“Galaxy Gear” in the U.S. and Korea. The Korean Intellectual Property Office application shows the Galaxy Gear more like a wristwatch with a metal frame and synthetic fiber.
Samsung had earlier in 1999 tried to float a wristwatch but the concept failed to take off and it remains to be seen whether the new one fits the digital wave or not.
Other tech companies in the race making wrist watches include, Apple with its iWatch set for release on September 10. Apple has so far employed 100 designers and product developers to make the iWatch and its application for patent is before the authorities in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the U.S.
The patent application by Samsung filed before the Korea Institute of Patent Information on May 31, 2013 with model number SM-V700 shows the basic design with the location of the power button, USB port, speaker/mic, and capacitative touchscreen with back and menu buttons.
