Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has been rumored for a while. And now, a few leaked photos of the photo sample of the phone are revealed by the Poland website Smartfan. According to the EXIF information shown on the photo sample, the phone model of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is GT-N7200 while the hardware version number is N7200XXUAMEB. In addition, according to the resolution of the sample photo, you can see then a 13 million megapixel camera will be built in with the lens stop f/2.2.

 

 

Because the model of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is GT-N7100, if the EXIF information shown on the sample photos is not fake, then the leaked GT-N7200 is probably the future Samsung Galaxy Note 3. At the same time, the configuration on camera is also consistent with the previous rumors that the phone would adopt the same camera as that of Samsung Galaxy S4.

 

 

 

As for the release time of Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Korea Times gave the exclusive news that Samsung has confirmed Galaxy Note 3 will be released at the IFA2013 conference on September this year. Meanwhile, the flagship will be equipped with 5.9 inches OLED touch screen. According to the previous leaked news, the resolution of Galaxy Note 3 will reach FHD full HD level, and it will use diamond pixel structure to ensure the more elaborate display effect.

 

Samsung GALAXY Note3 also may come with Android 4.2.2 or Android 4.3 system, and carry the new TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 operating connector. It is also rumored that it will own the largest 3GB RAM of memory with the built-in Exynos 5 Octa 8 core processor.

 

It is worth mentioning that the Samsung GALAXY Note3 won’t adopt the rumored metal shell. Instead, it will continue to adopt the design style of Galaxy S3. Furthermore, according to the insiders, the design of Note 3 will be similar to the Galaxy S4. This means plastic body will be used to Galaxy Note series again. From previously leaked news the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 has three prototypes, the first appearance is almost the same as the GALAXY S4, the second is using the brand new design model, and the third adopts the flexible touch screen. Obviously, Samsung seems to have adopted the first solution. So as a whole, the Samsung GALAXY Note 3 is really a larger version of the Samsung GALAXY S4.

 

If that is the case, the Galaxy Note 3 cannot play M2T camcorder videos as Galaxy S4 does, which means we have to use converting tool to convert M2T  files to MP4 which is favorable to the phone first. By the way, to make this easier, AVCHD can help a lot. It is professional to convert M2T or AVCHD to many common video formats, such as converting M2T to AVI , to MOV etc. If you own GoPro HD files, the app can also help to import GoPro HD to Final Cut Pro for further editing for further use.

 

Anyway, everybody just be patient to wait for the release of Galaxy Note 3. There is more or less surprise for you.

Samsung has released its another favorite work recently. Apparently, it is a product designed to compete with Apple iPad mini. And Samsung official has produced a series of advertising posters for Note 8.0. In those posters, there are comparisons between Note 8.0 and a mini tablet named A Pad mini, well, everyone is smart enough to know it is talking about Note 8.0 and iPad mini.

 

 

Obviously, those posters are telling people the reason why choose Note 8.0 not iPad mini. From those posters, we can see there are at least 6 reasons why choose Note 8.0.

 

First of all, Galaxy 8.0 has multi windows which allows users separate the screen into 2 parts so that users can take down notes directly on the tablet while checking emails or chat with others while surf the internet without switching apps. However, iPad mini cannot support this function.

 

Secondly, it is a problem about software. Samsung has added a new mode to Galaxy Note 8.0, called the Reading Model. Users can swiftly open and close the Reading Model through the shortcut bar. Automatically, the display color and tonal of E-book app can be optimized. Well, iPad mini doesn’t provide this function either.

 

Thirdly, Galaxy Note 8.0 is equipped with an S pen which is made on a size that is easy to hold. With the S pen, when users are reading on the Reading Mode, they can turn the page more easily, which makes the reading more enjoyable. The S Pen is no ordinary tool. Use it to tap the hard keys for an even more extensive navigation than before. iPad mini still cannot offer this.

 

Fourthly, Galaxy Note 8.0 features on an 8 inches display of 1280*800 189 ppi resolution. And iPad mini has adopted a 7.9 inches display with resolution of 1024*768 163ppi. Apparently, it gives better visual experience when watching videos on Note 8.0. However, speaking of watching videos, both tablet cannot support a variety of video formats. So, if you happen to have a camcorder and records in M2T or AVCHD formats, you need to convert them first before you playback on the Note 8.0 or iPad mini. You can consider converting M2T to MP4 well supported by them using the AVCHD Converter which is an all-in-one program able to convert .M2T to .MOV, AVI, etc common video formats like that. And it supports you to import M2T to FCP as well as iMovie for further editing.

 

Fifthly, Galaxy Note 8.0 has 2GB of memory and supports memory card extension with 1.6 GHz quad core A9 processor when iPad mini just has 512 MB of memory with A5 double core processor. It seems Note 8.0 is more powerful at performance.

 

Last but not least, Samsung has done better at overall hardware with better standards than iPad mini.

 

Samsung has openly challenged iPad mini by this way, will Aplle take some measures to fight back? Let’s wait and see.

Using the latest optimized 1/3 inches megapixel CMOS sensor, carrying the red circle HD camera, XA10 can shoot high stream HD video of 1920 x1080 resolutions.

If you are a filming amateur, you must have many saved films on your XA10 and as a film amateur, you must carefully deal with your work. So, here is the problem, how can you edit XA10 AVCHD videos on FCP 7/6?

 

Well, firstly, you can pay for updating your old version of FCP to FCP X which can support AVCHD, but there is another cheaper way-to transcode Canon XA10 AVCHD to FCP compatible ProRes MOV format first with AVCHD Converter. This tool is able to convert not only AVCHD to FCP, but also convert M2T to FCP. in fact it is a all-in-one tool that supports convert AVCHD M2T to MP4 which accepted by Apple devices, and other formats like MOV, AVI etc. So, if you have camcorders records in AVCHD or M2T codec, you might as well own the AVHCD converter for further use.

Xperia ZR eatures on 4.55-inch 720p screen while Xperia Z has a 5-inch 1080p screen. The difference of the display has decided the difference of body size.

 

Front-facing camera

SONY Xperia Z’s front-facing camera is up to 2 million pixels, but SONY Xperia ZR only 300000 pixels, from the point of view of self-time, apparently SONY Xperia Z is more suitable for self-time and video calls.

 

It seems the most difference between them is on the display, which leads to the size of the body. Anyway, when they have some difference on waterproof, appearance, display and front-facing camera, they have something in common, one is, both of them cannot play XAVC video format. If you have Sony PW-F55 camcorder and want to playback XAVC videos recorded by it on your Sony Xperia ZR or Z, you should meet big trouble. Well, warm tips for you.
