The Galaxy Note 3 screen and camera specs

Even though the Note 3 model is almost two years old, its camera and display resolution are still undeniably relevant. Sporting a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen, the 2013 phablet has a sharp 1080p resolution with 388ppi pixel density. It?s furnished with a 13-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing secondary camera. While those specs are remarkable, there are some software-side rules that limits the phone?s capabilities–that?s what this mod will try to address.

What this mod can do

An XDA member posted a SamsungCamera2 multi DPI mod in this forum thread. It has been picked up by the site and featured in in their portal news. When installed properly, it will give you multi DPI support, the ability to lift the recording restriction?on 4K video, and get around the device?s image compression limit.

To begin with, DPI has something to do with LCD density, hence the ?DPI? or ?dots per inch.? It should not be confused with PPI or pixels per inch, which is a fixed number. Here is the full list of features that this mod will bring:

  • No limitations on low battery
  • Uncompressed photos
  • No time limit in 4K video mod
  • Multi DPI

How to install Galaxy Note 3 multi DPI mod
