The Galaxy Note 3 is almost certainly the next major smartphone release from Samsung, and a new leak has given us a peak at its potential spec sheet. The news comes from notorious Samsung gossip blog SamMobile, and although some of the information fits in with previous leaks, some details sound a little less likely.
Apparently, Samsung will really go large with the Galaxy Note 3‘s screen size, as the new report says it’ll measure 5.68-inches and have a 1080p resolution. The Note 3 may also follow the trend set by the Galaxy S4, with certain models making use of Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa, eight-core processor, although we doubt the UK model will do so. Although the SamMobile report doesn’t mention it, we’d expect European Note 3 phones to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, allowing it to compete with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the LG G2.
It could be joined by 3GB of RAM, but 2GB sounds more likely, along with Android 4.3. Samsung traditionally hasn’t been fast to adopt the latest versions of Android, and if the September release date is correct, the Galaxy Note 3 may use the same OS as the Galaxy S4 – Android 4.2.2 with TouchWiz over the top.
According to the report, the spec sheet will also feature a 13 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, a whopping 3200mAh battery, and a choice of 3G and 4G LTE connectivity. The Galaxy Note 3 could be the star of the IFA Show, which starts at the beginning of September, and Samsung may hold another of its Unpacked shows on 4 September. We’ll find out then if the Galaxy Note 3 is as impressive as it sounds here.
