Samsung isn’t smiling but let us pray it’s all a rumor. Samsung of Life…..ride on.
The Bride awaiting to be unveiled.
The Korean electronics giant has filed for a trademark for ” 2D 3D Movie & Still “, and it has also filed for a patent related to a panoramic imaging lens and panoramic imaging system.
Samsung noted in its trademark filing that the application covers software for smartphones, software for tablets, digital cameras, USB flash drives, mobile telephones, portable media players, portable computers, rechargeable batteries, smartphones, tablets, wireless headsets and lenses for cameras. That’s a pretty extensive list.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that the 3D still and video camera features will show up in the Galaxy S4, but it seems plausible, given the timing. Samsung is hosting an event to announce the phone on Today in New York City.
Other rumours swirling around the Galaxy S4 are that it may come with an 8-core Exynos processor, a separate 8-core graphics processing unit, a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video capability, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and the latest version of Android, known as 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. There’s also speculation that the Galaxy S4 will offer eye-tracking capabilities.
As for Samsung’s patent filing for a panoramic imaging lens, Samsung noted that it would include a first lens piece and a second lens piece. The panoramic imaging lens “realizes reduced complexity and cost of manufacturing, and stray rays causing flare or ghost phenomenon are suppressed by cutting a side of the second lens piece, thereby improving image quality”.
The US Patent and Trademark Office, in recent weeks, also published Samsung trademark applications for the “Samsung Galaxy Fonblet “, and “Galaxy S Active “.
