Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to Come with 5.7-inch Display After all

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 specs

We exclusively told you a couple of weeks ago that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 release date will be on September 4th, information that was later confirmed by The Korea Herald. As we are getting closer to the highly-anticipated smartphone’s launch, more details about Samsung’s next-gen pahablet are starting to surface.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will soon be 1 year old, so everybody is expecting the South Korea-based phone maker to unveil its successor in the coming months. As you probably know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be introduced during a special Samsung Unpacked event held in Berlin on September 4th, the same day the IFA 2013 tech fair will open its gates for the press. Even though rumors said that the Galaxy Note 3 will come with a display sized at least 5.9 inches, it looks that after all the terminal will have a 5.7-inch screen.

The first Samsung Galaxy Note 3 leaked specifications hit the web in May and a recent report by MK News comes to confirm most of them. According to the reputed publication, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will sport 3 GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera (most likely borrowed from the Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship), and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Qualcomm’s processing solution will make it under the hood of may hig-end smartphones and tablets that will see the light of day this fall and it’s already used for the LTE Adavanced variant of the Galaxy S4, which is, for the time being, available exclusively on the South Korean market.

In case you forgot, I remind you that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC is based on four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU. Samsung has recently introduced a revised variant of its Exynos 5 Octa chipset, but, we can’t say for sure whether it will be used for the Galaxy Note 3 phablet, given the production problems of the Exynos 5410 unit.

The same source writes that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will come with a 5.7-inch display which will probably use a Super AMOLED panel with full HD resolution. Sammobile recently wrote that Samsung tested three different screen sizes for the Galaxy Note 3: 5.5, 5.7, and 5.99 inches, but it seems that the 5.7-inch model will be the only one mass produced.

Even though there were some reports saying that Samsung will ditch the Super AMOLED technology over a LCD panel, my guess is that the new phablet will employ the first unit. Anyway, there were some rumors saying that there will be two Samsung Galaxy Note 3 market dependant variants: one with a Super AMOLED display and one with a LCD display.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will most likely run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box, given that Google recently unveiled the latest Android iteration, and of course, the South Korean company will apply its proprietary TouchWiz Nature UX interface on top of it.

    You know this phone from what I have read is just a bigger version of the s4 With a stylist. That’s it. if this is true. This phone is gonna suck big time. The size is not much bigger than my note II. I surely will not spend my time or money on this device. I wish sony and sprint would get together. I would buy a sony xperia z ultra. Sorry samsung. You introduce this phone to the world. You are gonna need a tissue to wipe you crying eyes with. All the way back to your office. then make a phone worth buying.

        It’s all over the net. It is what samsung has released to the media so far. Everything that has been posted is guesstimated. I am really waiting for sept. But as far as what has been posted, Iam going to stick with my note 2. Hope I answered questions. OD

      Wow, a phone with its own stylist. It’s going to look fabulous all the time!

      Man I agree! I wish the Xperia Z Ultra would come to sprint. I’ll get the note 3 though if its my only option. I want a large screen with 1080p resolution. Especially now since Netflix released their 1080p update for android 4.3!

    Looks like you need the tissue.whining and complaining over?.it’s going to perform like a champ. Upgrading my already my enjoyable S3. The note 3 will make my home care records a treat to complete. Perfect size. .2 or .3 bigger would be a smidge better but not worth the sniffle.

      I also have the s3, though my target phone was note2. Note2 came a month later after I have decided to take the s3. Well, the size of note2 (5.5) in comparison to note3′s rumored 5.7 is small but I am now starting to believe this 5.7 size will be comfortable in my pocket. I just believe the extra screen resolution will make the difference.

      I am not complaining. Simply stating my opinion. I did not think I would get ridiculed over an opinion. If you feel the note 3 will work for you. Then fine state that. You don’t need to belittle others for stating theirs. Enjoy your s3.
