    If the newest Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumors are accurate, the next super-phablet from Samsung will have some impressive camera features. The new intel is that Samsung will be including a 13 MegaPixel sensor and a special processor for the camera on the device. This special processor will be designed to offer some high-end camera features, including optical image stabilization and shutter functions. There is talk that it will also offer a 3x optical zoom. As far as we know this is the only new info beyond the specs from previous rumors. The Galaxy Note 3 is likely to launch during IFA in September.

    Wow, optical zoom and optical stabilization. I have to wonder how effective it will be on a small lens. If it works, thats pretty awesome. I hate digital zoom with a passion.

    Do what I'm going to do, keep both. One will be my daily driver and the other will go on my second line for my GF.

    I agree, the grainy pixelation is absolutely worthless.

    I guess putting a better camera in these things is just cost prohibitive, but I know I'd pay the premium to have a camera rivaling a $400 point-n-shoot. I do think the tech is there to put in bigger lenses with telescoping ability to dramatically improve photo capabilities. Yeah, you'd have to sacrifice some on thickness, but so what.
