A Samsung Galaxy Note 3 photo have just hit the web after the folks at Concept Phones posted a rendered mock up on their website. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rendering looks pretty realistic, and, if you asked me, I would say this is pretty close to what the South Korea-based company will launch later this year.
After the Asian phone maker officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4 last month, the media turned its attention to the next high-end Sammy smartphone that is expected to debut this year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Just like it happened with the previous two Galaxy Note generations, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will most likely follow the design language of the flagship smartphone launched ahead of it, namely the Galaxy S4.
Just like the render pictured above indicates, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 looks like an oversized SGS4, but, for some reason the new phablet is more handsome than it. Probably it’s the bezel around the display, which is even thinner than the one of the Galaxy S4. As you can see in the picture above, the rendered Samsung Galaxy Note 3 almost has an edge-to-edge display.
Another design element borrowed from the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the metal band that goes around the body of the terminal. Of course, since the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is a member of the Note tribe, it will also come with a gap that can accomodate an S Pen stylus. Talking about the S Pen, Samsung has bought 5% in Wacom shares, a company popular for their graphic tablets with pressure-sensitive stylus, so expect some enhancements for the S Pen of the Galaxy Note 3.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 render also reveals a slim construction and, according to its creator, the smartphone pictured above is only 7.9 mm thick. Even so, it has enough room to accommodate a 3,600 mAh battery.
There are a lot of rumors surround the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs. Even though some may dream about 3 GB of RAM and 16 megapixel camera, my guess is that the South Koreans will offer the same Exynos 5 Octa CPU that was introduced on the Galaxy S4 (with the Cortex A15 cores overclocked at 2 GHz), 2 GB of RAM, and the same 13 megapixel sensor that debuted on the flagship smartphone announced in March.
We’ll also witness an increase in display size, and, based on the 0.2-inch increase that occurred last year, the Galaxy Note 3 might have a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED touch panel. The full HD resolution will also be there, plus Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date might be set in the September 1-5 time frame, in the week prior to IFA Berlin 2013, during a special Samsung Unpacked event. The Note 3 might also be the first Samsung smartphone to run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie out of the box, but we’ll have to wait for the official announcement to be more sure about it.
How do you think the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will look like? Is the render above accurate enough? Let us know in the comments section.
