Although we currently have no idea as to the design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, what its features will be or when the phablet will be released, we do know one thing, it will be a direct competitor to the LG Optimus G Pro.
Okay, so most of you may have already known this, but we have renewed this comparison because of some software destined for the Note 3 that is very similar to what the G Pro currently has. If what we have learned is correct, then the Galaxy Note 3 will come installed with software called S Orb, which as you may be aware should have been released with the S4.
However, because the new camera software was not ready in time, the S4 was unable to take advantage of S Orb, which allows for 360 degree panorama shooting of images. It seems that the S4’s loss is the Note 3’s gain, as Samsung has confirmed this will be their first handset to use the new software.
This software is pretty much the same as Photo Sphere, which is used on a range of Nexus devices, allowing users to take 360-degree images and then merge them together to make them look a little like Street View. The only other smartphone to use this camera software outside the Nexus family is the Optimus G Pro, which will be its main competitor.
Once S Orb has been released on the Note 3, then Samsung will allow users to install it on other Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie devices, such as the Galaxy S3, S4 and the Note, as we know Samsung will fully support these handsets with the next Android update. We can also tell you that S Orb will fully integrate with Facebook, allowing you to share those panoramic photos you have taken.
