Was This Picture Taken with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

June 14, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Today a camera sample from the Galaxy Note 3 that should be announced at the end of the summer, showed up on Picasa. It shows the model number that we’ve been told is the Galaxy Note 3. That’s SM-N900. Before we continue, we do have to warn you that EXIF data is still pretty easy to fake. Even easier than faking a benchmark.

This leak is pretty normal, as we see leaks like this for every device coming out soon. Especially the flagship devices like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2, Nexus 10, Xperia Z, etc. So this could indeed be from the Galaxy Note 3 with the rumored 13MP camera, but there really is no way tell just yet. What’s interesting here is that the image actually looks really nice. Which is uncommon with these types of leaks. The pictures are usually blurry or over exposed. Which is a good thing for anyone holding out for the Galaxy Note 3.

The Galaxy Note 3 is said to have a 5.99-inch 1080p display, with 3GB of RAM and an Exynos 5 Octa processor, along with the 13MP camera on the back. Like we said, that’s rumored right now as nothing has been confirmed. But we could see the Galaxy Note 3 anytime this summer. Normally we’d expect it in August at an Unpacked event around IFA, since that’s where the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera was announced last year. ┬áBut Samsung did announce the Galaxy S4 a few months early this year. So I wouldn’t put it past Samsung to announce the Galaxy Note 3 a few months early. In fact, I’d welcome it.

So what do you think about this picture supposedly taken by the Galaxy Note 3? Is the quality good enough to be your next phone? Let us know in the comments below.
