Rumor: Galaxy Note 4 to feature 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization

In the latest report from the Korean media about the Galaxy Note 4, it is said that Samsung’s next-generation phablet flagship will sport a 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. Right off the bat, this seems like a rather odd rumor, especially since it’s pretty much a tradition that the Galaxy Note series has always carried the same camera unit as the last Galaxy S flagship, and not to mention that a 16-megapixel camera is more or less confirmed to be present on the Galaxy Note 4 (something our own sources have confirmed to us.)

According to the report, Samsung has adopted for a 12-megapixel sensor in order to keep the Note 4 as thin as possible, with production facilities for the 12MP camera set up and ready to go. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera will be a 3.7-megapixel unit, something that we also saw on leaked benchmarks for the Galaxy Note 4 earlier this week.

This is certainly one of those rumors that we wouldn’t give much credence. The only reason we can think of for the Note 4 sporting just a 12-megapixel camera is if Samsung has found it hard to put in hardware optical image stabilization on the 16MP Sony sensor the Note 4 is expected to use, but again, this is a rumor best taken with a giant pinch of salt.

  1. fake and even those test are fake still early to listen spec about note 4

    • I think so too, they start talking when Note 3 wasn’t half year old yet not to mention S6

  2. Grain of Salt? No.

  3. oh wait i am not interested in buying Note 4 may be after 6 months Note 5 will release with more features..

    • Yeah hold out for the Note 4 “Prime” lol

    • i am interested to buy note 4 neo after my note 3 9005 because i will enjoy every feature of note 4 without all these over gimmick resolution and cpu and ram and will released before s6 in march but with so much less price – you cant enjoy Samsung phone more than a year sad truth :(

  4. So my LG G3 has a 13mp ois sensor and is awesome, yet Samsung wants to put a worse camera than my Note 3? I know it’s a rumor, but if this is true what is Samsung thinking. Ois is a great feature but we need to upgrade bit downgrade. The S5s camera on my wife’s phone always freezes, LG has the right idea. I don’t hate Samsung but I want them to do better.

    • Just a rumour.

      • Did you even bother to read what I wrote? I acknlowdeged that it was a rumor. Given that many of these are turning our to be true you never know.
