Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to shoot 4K video

On the face of it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was likely to struggle with a 'killer' feature at launch. But it seems like it might have one or two tricks that have so far eluded the pundits.

According to Korea Economic Daily and its sources, one of those will be the ability to shoot video in Ultra High Definition. It will be a very shrewd move by Samsung, which hopes that the 4K video feature will push sales of its new phablet, but will also boost sales of 4K TVs in the future too. After all, if you are shooting super high quality video, you might want to show it off at its best on a big screen.

However, while it is giving with one hand, it looks like it is taking away with the other. A further report out of Korea claims that the camera might be a bit of a let down compared to our expectations. Previous rumours have pointed to the Note 3 packing a camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation). However, it now seems like the technology will not be ready for the Note 3, with the Samsung Galaxy S5 likely to be first phone using it.

What we are expecting is a 5.68 inch Full HD Super AMOLED (1920 x 1080) display, a 1.8GHz Octa-core Exynos 5420 processor, 3GB RAM, a 13-megapixel, between 16GB and 64GB of storage, a microSD slot and a 3,200 mAh battery, along with Android 4.3 for the OS.

All should be revealed on 4 September at the latest Unpacked event.
