There are a lot of reasons to be excited about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note III. We might end up seeing one of the first implementations of this next-gen Exynos 5 Octa Samsung’s been teasing. And then there was all that talk about multiple hardware versions, giving users a choice of materials and display types – maybe even using some of that unbreakable screen tech developed for flexible OLED panels. But one thing we haven’t really been too concerned with is the Note III’s camera. Nevertheless, it’s the focus of our latest GN3 leak, with what sure appears to be a shot it took turning up on Picasa.
This is from the SM-N9005, with is looking like it could be a Snapdragon 800-based GN3. We’ve already had the opportunity to look at camera samples from other GN3 versions. This one’s seriously cropped-down and is a far cry from the full-res shots the phablet should be capable of, so look at it instead as a titillating reminder of the great hardware lurking out there in the world, just outside the scope of public view.
We’ve heard the GN3 could have either 13-megapixel or an 8-megapixel main camera, and this pic here is likely from that 13-megapixel version, using the same sensor on the Galaxy S 4 – at least, the aperture and focal length match.
There are just over six weeks to go before the IFA gets started in early September, and you had better believe we’ll be seeing the Galaxy Note III make an appearance.
