Rumor: Galaxy Note III to support 4K video recording, 24-bit/192KHz music playback


Last updated: August 27th, 2013 at 05:30 UTC+02:00

Fresh rumors about the Galaxy Note III have cropped up, and this time, they’re about the video and audio capabilities of the upcoming handset. According to The Korea Economic Daily, the Note III will let users record video at 4K resolution, or at 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution, and will also offer 24-bit/192KHz music playback to keep the audio buffs happy.

Now, while better audio support is something we all like, many will question the need of 4K video recording on a smartphone, as neither the display resolution nor storage space are enough for 4K video on a smartphone. However, with Ultra HD 4K TVs on their way to becoming the next big thing after Full HD TVs, 4K video recording is a feature that might start appearing on all flagship devices in the near future (even Sony’s 20-megapixel Xperia Z1 Honami is expected to have it).

As always, nothing is confirmed until the handset goes official, so take everything with a pinch of salt. Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Note III in September at its UNPACKED event, and we can’t wait to see which of these rumors turn out to be right.
