Samsung after such a fine year with cellular devices is now working upon some fascinating accessories too. One of them is Exynos 5 octa processor; Samsung hasn't yet launched it but is teasing people with its pictures over twitter. The processor works upon 8 small and big powerful cores divided into two groups, one group is active at a time. 4 cores belong to Cortex-A15 and 4 to Cortex-A7. Cortex-A7 is smaller core in relation to A15 cores.
A7 cores are really efficient in terms of energy saving, although they are not as powerful as A-15 cores but are enough to run any device smoothly. A7-cores are only 13% less in terms of size in with A-15 cores. The shifting time between these two groups of cores is about 30-50 minutes. More details, could be unveiled at the launch of the phone, till then we can only rely on twitter pictures and rumors.
Image above was leaked on online by Mydrivers, according to a report from them, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III will feature a Full HD display and packs a punch with the company's own Exynos 5410 Octa processor, with the four powerful Cortex A15 chips clocked at 2.0 GHz, and the remaining four power-saving Cortex A7 chips running at 1.7 GHz.
Samsung Galaxy Note III is said to come with 3 GB of RAM and will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Furthermore, the phablet is rumored to be unveiled during IFA 2013. We will be looking to that event.
We should hope that Samsung could solve the problem and use the flexible display design as LG wants to bring their own smartphone at the end of the year with such a display.
The leaked image which was uploaded to the Picasa web albums has a resolution of 2322 x 4128 pixels, which is what a 13MP sensor produces in 16:9 mode. This means that Samsung will again equip its flagship smartphone and phablet with identical camera modules - a tradition that has been going since the first Galaxy Note came to life.
The photo's EXIF data shows an f/2.2 aperture and a 31mm lens, which again is the same as the Galaxy S4's setup. Some reports had previously suggested the Note 3 would feature image stabilisation, bringing it inline with current top-shelf offerings from Nokia, but this has yet to be confirmed.
We think a Q3 2013 release could be on the cards - slightly later than its 2012 Galaxy Note August release date, but developing a 6.3-inch OLED display can't be easy work!
Pricing on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is yet to even be rumoured, but we think it will probably be more expensive than the Galaxy Note 2. After all, the screen is much larger.
Around May this year, we heard a rumor that the Samsung Galaxy Note III's camera module would sport OIS, but apparently that won't be happening after all. According to reports coming in from South Korea, the Galaxy Note III will not have OIS because of issues with the production of such modules.
Ironically, it's the Galaxy Note III's predicted success in terms of sales that is going to prevent it from coming with this much sought-after feature. Samsung simply couldn't secure as many OIS modules from its suppliers as it needed. So the company really has no choice but to ship the Note III without OIS.
As Samsung Electronics is going full steam ahead with the commercialization of state-of-the-art camera modules, 16-mega-pixel products are expected to become the basic specifications for its premium smartphones next year. The structure of the domestic camera module industry is forecast to go through a big change too.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics has been the sole supplier of 13-mega-pixel camera module for Samsung Electronics, but Samsung Electronics is expected to increase the number of suppliers next year. If Samsung Electro-Mechanics concentrates in the production of 16-mega-pixel products, the procurement of 13-mega-pixel products will become unstable.
Samsung Electronics has recently increased the number of 8-mega-pixel suppliers to meet Samsung Electro-Mechanics\' production schedule for 13-mega-pixel camera modules. About three months ago, vendors, including Partron, Cammsys and Powerlogics, were approved as suppliers of 8-mega-pixel camera module suppliers. Some of them are working with Samsung Electronics to obtain its approval for 13-mega-pixel products.
Samsung Electronics announced its new sophisticated pixel technology with regard to CMOS image devices, ISOCELL. This new technology substantially increases light sensitivity and effectively regulates the absorption of electrons, leading to higher colour fidelity even just in poor lighting conditions. ISOCELL improves the image quality and enhances the user experience of premium smartphones as well as tablets which integrate sensors with this exciting new technologies.
"Through advances within pixel and procedure technology, smart phone and pill cameras have made it easier than ever for customers to capture and share beautiful, clear pictures with the world. ISOCELL technology is another innovation which significantly raises the bar in picture quality, and shows Samsung's technology leadership in image sensors with regard to mobile devices."
The caliber of an image sensing unit is determined by the quantity of light that is accurately captured by the person pixels within the sensor variety. With the market pressure to increase camera quality and picture quality, without expanding the camera dimension, the pixels have had to shrink, while improving their overall performance at the same time - a challenging job.
To meet this concern, previous sensor technology advancements focused on increasing the light assimilation of each pixel, and have progressed pixel technology from FSI (Entrance Side Lighting) to BSI (Back again Side Illumination) which places photodiode at the top to maximise photoelectric efficiency. While being extremely effective at the time, this BSI technology also faced limitations in improving image quality because pixel sizes continued to decrease.

Google's popular mobile browser is going to receive a redesigned start page, a hidden setting reveals. Other new features include image search and new gestures.
Today's Beta release of Chrome you can quickly discover all sorts of content related to an image by right-clicking on it, or by long pressing it on mobile devices, and selecting the option to search for it within your default search provider.
Right-click on an image to use it as a Google search
In Chrome for Android, new gestures make it even easier to get where you want to go. Swipe horizontally across the top toolbar to quickly switch tabs (this gesture replaces swiping from the edge of the screen). Drag vertically down from the toolbar to enter into the tab switcher view. And drag down from the menu to open the menu and select the item you want without having to lift your finger.
This is all clearly a work in progress (hence the hidden placement within the Chrome flags section); the voice-command icon doesn't yet work, and tapping the Bookmarks or Other Devices buttons takes you back to those respective sections in the old-style start page.
