What do we know about the Galaxy Note III? We’ve heard about some potential screen sizes (though we’re now second-guessing that info upon learning about some other big non-Note Galaxy models), and we’ve looked into what the choices Samsung made with the Galaxy S 4 might tell us about its plans for the Note III. Now a new rumor is suggesting the Note III could debut some new Samsung camera software.
Supposedly, The Note III will be used by Samsung to launch its “S Orb” software, the company’s take on Google’s Photo Sphere. We’re hard-pressed to come up for a reason why Samsung feels compelled to reinvent the wheel here, short of wanting to give users a fully-Samsung imaging experience (taking a page from LG and the Optimus G Pro there). One detail that has been mentioned is that Samsung may be looking to give its users easy ways to share these panoramas through social networks like Facebook.
After S Orb arrives with the Note III, it may come to other high-end Samsung phones, presumably tied to the release of an Android 5.0 update.
