After some concepts of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, we came across a leaked picture of the device, that we should take with a grain of salt. The image appeared on the web today and apparently pictures a model called the i9500. Usually a Note device has an N in its name, so that’s why we tend to believe it’s fake.
There’s also a bunch of specs included in the leak. Those include a 5.99 inch Full HD display, the Exynos 5410 Octa processor, an 8 core CPU with a A15 2 GHz quad core ticker and an A7 1.7 GHz ticker. The interesting bit is that we’re supposed to get 3 GB of RAM here, instead of the usual 2 GB of RAM from the last years.
Galaxy Note 3 runs Android 4.2.2 and I find it strange that its Home button is so tiny. I have to say that this product is expected to be unveiled at IFA 2013, sometime in August or September, if everything goes well. I expect Wacom to include an even more evolved stylus system, perhaps with new apps and a new way to multitask.
Erica Yusim sent us pictures of what seems to be a Samsung Galaxy Note 3render, a pretty well thought device, that evolves from the idea of the two predecessors. First of all, it seems to have an edge to edge screen, then a more elegant Home button and then a bigger diagonal.
It also has a more squared format, leaving behind the rounded design of the Galaxy S III and Note II. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 features a 5.8 inch FHD Super AMOLED screen, a bigLITTLE processor, which means we have both a 2 GHz quad core processor (Cortex A15) and a quad core Cortex A7 1.4 GHz CPU. Basically, we’re dealing with an 8 core phablet, with 3GB of RAM, 32 to 128 GB of ROM and a microSDXC storage of up to 128 GB as well.
Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie is chosen here and a 4000 mAh battery powers up the device. At the back there’s a 13 megapixel camera, while upfront we use a 3 MP webcam. The whole thing measures 8.9 mm in thickness and obviously involves a brand new S Pen generation. From the comparison pics in this article, you can see that the Note 3 combines elements from the Note 1 and Note II, taking more from the first generation, if you ask me. I actually prefer a more rectangular design compared to the rounded one
