If you are hoping to get optical image stabilization feature on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III, you would be disappointed to know that it’s not going to happen– at least for another year. A new report from Korean shores suggests that Samsung is working on a 16MP camera with optical image stabilization that will be used in the upcoming Galaxy smartphones – expected to be Galaxy S5.
The company already has a 16MP camera in Galaxy S4 Zoom with 10x optical zoom but it’s not something that can be classified as optical image stabilization, although the device has excellent camera capabilities. The report emerged from a Korean publication that made this discovery. It reports that Samsung Galaxy Note III will not carry a camera with OIS because the Korean manufacture failed to get enough sensors from its suppliers and hence decided to postpone the feature to the upcoming flagships.
Samsung Galaxy Note III is expected to make an official appearance in less than two weeks in Berlin. Samsung scheduled an event on September 4 just before IFA 2013 kicks off where the company is expected to unveil the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note III along with the alleged Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Let me remind you not to put your entire faith in the rumors as we’ll find out if Samsung Galaxy Note III will feature OIS in camera very soon. I don’t know about you but I’m excited about the upcoming Samsung event.
