Samsung, the Korean technology giant, has announced their most advanced smartphone to date at the IFA 2013 in Berlin — The Samsung Galaxy Note III.
The quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor keeps the LTE geniusphone running at a cool 2.3GHz with 3GB of RAM. At 5.7-inches, the device pops sharp colors at you with its AMOLED Full HD display. It also features six LTE bands, which will let it function on all cell networks in the U.S. and UK.
Optics include a 13-megapixel rear camera with stabilizing functionality and LED flash, and a 2-megapixel camera on the front.
As if it couldn’t get any better, they added yet another amazing feature — 4K Ultra HD Video Recording. This is possible thanks to the Snapdragon 800, which can record 4K Ultra HD at 30 frames per second. If you reduce the quality to Full HD, the fps comes up to 60; and if you drop it to 720p, the fps jumps to 120, allowing for slow motion shots.
We can only wonder how much storage space shooting 4K video will take, and how many people will actually be able to view the 4K Ultra HD quality on an appropriate screen. Perhaps including 4K recording capabilities will persuade consumers to purchase Samsung’s Ultra HDTV’s?
Connectivity includes LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/c/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 (LE), NFC, and infrared for controlling devices at home. It includes a 3,200mAh battery for playing endless hours of Candy Crush, and 32GB/64GB storage options.
The phone will be released September 25th worldwide, including the U.S. and UK. It will be available in black, white, and pink.
