We’ve already seen tons of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 photos hitting the web and we can say we already know what to expect from the next-gen Sammy phablet when it comes to its design. Today we get to look at the first Samsung Galaxy Note 3 leaked photo that reveals the back of the phablet with the lid removed, allowing us to take a peak inside.
The guys at Webtrek.it were the ones who released the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 photo in the wild showing the battery of the smartphone and oddly enough, two SIM card slots. Unfortunately, the quality of the photo doesn’t allow us to tell the capacity of the battery unit, but we are expecting the Galaxy Note 3 to have a battery around 3,500 mAh.
Another interesting thing about the purported Galaxy Note 3 captured on camera is that it has rather sharp edges than the curved design of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Everyone is expecting the Galaxy Note 3 to look like a bigger Samsung Galaxy S4, as all its predecessors borrowed their design from the flagships launched ahead of it. Of course, we might as well be looking at a dummy case Samsung usually applies over its prototypes in order to keep their design hidden.
Samsung has officially announced a couple of days ago that it will host an Unpacked event on September 4 in Berlin. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will most likely debut at the aforementioned event that will be held on the first day IFA Berlin 2013 will open its gates for the media.
The rumor mill also talks a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 technical specifications. The next-gen phablet will most likely borrow its camera from the Galaxy S4, having a 13 megapixel sensor mounted on the back. Of course, the camera app will also sport all the interesting features introduced with the Galaxy S4, like Drama Shot, Sound and Shot, Dual Shot, or Dual Video Recording.
The Galaxy Note 3 is also expected to arrive with an improved S Pen, after Samsung acquired 5% in Wacom shares, a company that manufactures graphic tablets with stylus input.
Even though the early rumors were hinting that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will pack a 5.9-inch displays it seems that the highly-anticipated tablet will come with a 5.7-inch screen after all. It will definitely pack full HD resolution given the current trend on the high-end Android smartphone market, but there are some controversies regarding the panel used for the Note 3 display. Sources say that there will be Super AMOLED and LCD Galaxy Note 3 variants, which will go on sale with different displays depending on market they are released on.
We’ve seen some Snapdragon 800-powered Galaxy Note 3 benchmarks, therefore we can expect to see a variant of the Sammy phablet to have Qualcomm’s powerful chipset under the hood. There will also be an Exynos 5 Octa Galaxy Note 3, but, for the time being we can’t know for sure whether it’s the Exynos 5410 unit also mounted on the Galaxy S4, or the new Exynos 5420 unit that comes with 20% performance boost. The Exynos 5420 is based on four Cortex A15 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz (200 MHz higher than the ones of the Exynso 5410) and four Cortex A7 cores at 1.3 GHz (100 MHz higher than the ones of the Exynos 5410), packing a Mali T628 GPU with eight cores.
The phablet will most likely run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box, customized with Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz Nature UX user interface.
