Just the other day it was reported that the upcoming Sony Honami could capture 4K videos, and it looks like Samsung is expected to offer a similar feature as well with their upcoming Galaxy Note 3 phablet device. This is according to the Korea Economic Daily whose sources have “confirmed” that 4K video capture will be one of the Galaxy Note 3’s upcoming features. For those unfamiliar, this basically translates into a video with a resolution of 3840×2160, or around 8.3MP. While 4K will eventually become the new standard and replace 1080p, there aren’t that many 4K televisions in living rooms at the moment, but we guess Samsung could be looking to future proof its devices.
Some are speculating that the 4K video capture could be a way for Samsung to “make up” for the lack of optical image stabilization in its camera, a feature that supposedly will debut in Samsung’s 2014 flagship device. The reason behind it is that Samsung was reportedly not able to get enough sensors in time for the Galaxy Note 3, so perhaps including 4K video capture is a way to make up for it, so to speak. In any case Samsung will most likely announce the Galaxy Note 3 at its Unpacked event on the 4th of September during IFA 2013 in Berlin, so check back with us then for the details.
