Galaxy Note III may have all the digital camera options you need

Samsung logoIt's been a month of rumors surrounding Samsung's mobile product line. First we heard about the large, but inexpensive, 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega and then saw leaks of the company's forthcoming "rugged" Galaxy S 4. Now we're hearing rumors about the forthcoming Galaxy Note phone-tablet hybrid that will apparently launch later this year. Boy Genius Report points to ETNews, a Korean IT news site that claims to have spoken with an anonymous Samsung executive. In the piece, the executive all but confirmed some of the features coming with the next iteration of Samsung's "phablet" device.

ETNews' source says that the Galaxy Note III will come equipped with a 13-megapixel camera that features anti-shake technology and a 3x optical zoom. The device's additional functions will allegedly make it an equal to "any other digital camera." Those rumors come from "industry insiders" who claim that Samsung's mobile division is working on bringing Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and shutter functions to the Galaxy Note III.

ETNews notes that although the development team is working on packaging 3x optical zoom with the device, it is difficult to do because of how slim smartphone bodies are. "Nothing has yet to be confirmed," said an official from Samsung Electronics' mobile communications division. "We cannot conclusively say that those functions will be added to the Galaxy Note III." While we do expect to see a new Galaxy Note III later this year, whether it will have this kind of camera functionality is another question entirely.
