Two online publications have posted reports about a Galaxy Note prototype device that has allegedly been spotted in the wild. It seems that the handset is heading to R&D according to one of the sources.
The publications we are talking about are Sam Mobile and TechTastic, which say that the device (featured in the images below the article) is in fact a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 prototype. If we are to believe Sam Mobile, the smartphone is not the Galaxy Mega 6.3 because it has different specs than the ones rumored so far.
It looks like the Galaxy Note 3 prototype sports a full HD display, but there is no word about the S Pen stylus until now.
According to the second publication, the a few units of the device will be shipped to R&D, although the site does not quite mention the Galaxy Note 3 in particular. Anyway, it is also said that the phone will be hitting the Bluetooth SIG not far from now. The Galaxy Note 3 prototype reportedly has the model number SM-N900. This model number lacks one zero if we compare it with the model number SM-N9000, which has been spotted on the phone maker’s own website a couple of days ago.
Moving on to the rumored specs, the Galaxy Note 3 is said to be coming with a 5.99-inch full HD screen, it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, which will be helped by an Andreno 330 GPU. Among other technical specifications we can also mention the 13 MP camera, LTE support, 802.11ac, S Pen, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean that will have the TouchWiz UI on top, of course.
TechTastic also talks about two more Samsung handsets that seems to be in development and are about to be launched soon, namely the Galaxy Camera 2 (EK-GN120) and the Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced (SHV-E330S). Both handset have been mentioned in other reports.
As always we recommend you to take all this with a grain of salt as it’s not official information. However, Samsung is clearly preparing something for the customers, and as soon as we’ll have more details about the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Camera 2, or Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced, we’ll surely let you know.
