Rumor: Galaxy Note 3 to shoot 4K video, offer 24-bit/192kHz music playback

A fresh report from South Korea says that the Galaxy Note 3 will let users record 4K video and offer 24-bit/192kHz Hi-Fi music playback.

The Korea Economic Daily apparently has it from industry sources that the Galaxy Note 3 will be able to record 4K UHD videos – that’s a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (2160p) or 8.3-megapixel – which will feel right at home on those new 4K TV sets out there.

Do we need such recording capabilities in phone cameras? Or is Samsung just trying to make up for the rumored lack of OIS support in the Galaxy Note 3 by offering a different kind of camera-related exclusive feature to potential buyers?

We can’t answer such questions at this time since there’s nothing official about the handset yet, and these are just new rumors that are flying around.

We’ll remind you that the LG G2 is going to offer users a camera with OIS features, something that was expected from the Galaxy Note 3 as well.

The same publication says that the Galaxy Note 3 will offer 24-bit/192kHz music playback support – thus matching the LG G2’s sound capabilities. When announcing the G2, the company did insist on the phone’s sound capabilities, and it looks like the Galaxy Note 3 may join it in offering better-than-CDs sound.

Again, these are just some fresh rumors about the Galaxy Note 3, so we’ll have to wait a few more days to see the phone become official – the handset will be unveiled on September 4 in Berlin, Germany.
