Samsung Galaxy Note 3 camera to feature optical image stabilisation?

New Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours have suggested the heavily mooted handset will land later this year with optical image stabilisation in tow.

Long the thing of rumour and speculation, latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours have claimed the eagerly awaited addition to the smartphone turn tablet hybrid family will line up with an integrated snapper to top that on the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Seemingly set to feature a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera, latest reports out of Samsung’s native Korea have claimed that the Note 3 will be the company’s first smartphone snapper to benefit from optical image stabilisation among other improvements. Not the first handset to bring OIS into the mix, a selection of Nokia’s Lumia devices have already gone down that camera improving route.

Previously tipped to support a 3x optical zoom bragging snapper, the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumours have hinted that such additions have been dropped due to issues keeping the handset’s form factor at a suitably slim level.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Rumours
One of the most widely tipped devices yet to make it to the realms of reality, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been rumoured to hit the market with all manner of high-end innards and revolutionary advancements.

While claims of a flexible, unbreakable display appearing on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have been widely rubbished, the handset is expected to sport the eight-core Exynos 5 processor afforded to Samsung Galaxy S4 owners in certain markets.

With a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date having been long rumoured for IFA 2013 this autumn, an official Samsung event being held on June 20 has since cast a shadow on these predictions.

Promising the arrival of new Android powered Galaxy and Windows Phone powered Ativ branded devices, the upcoming Samsung launch event will be held in London.
