Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Prototype Leaks – Shows It’s Another Big Phone

July 30, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’re getting closer and closer to the launch and announcement of the Galaxy Note 3. We’re expecting Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note 3 in early September at IFA in Berlin, so we still have another month full of rumors, leaks and reports. This time someone has posted pictures of a prototype of the Galaxy Note 3 on “China’s Twitter” Weibo. While we can’t tell much from the device, we can definitely see that it’s still going to be a huge device. Which is nothing we didn’t expect.

This prototype appears to be an engineering unit and looks pretty far from being the final thing. This could be one of the designs that Samsung is using to hide the actual design of the device. Which wouldn’t be the first time, in fact many OEMs do that. There is also mention of the design having an “alignment style like the i9100” which was the Galaxy S2. As you can see there’s a physical home button in the middle as usual. On the back, there appears to be a slot for the S Pen which is one of the major features of the Galaxy Note series. The source is also mentioning that there is a logo present, but it’s pretty well covered up by the sticker.

As far as the screen size goes, it’s a bit hard to tell what size it is, but we’d guess somewhere between 5.7-6 inches in size. We’re expecting Samsung to fit a bigger screen inside the same size device as the Galaxy Note 2. Which is what Samsung did with the S4. Kept relatively the same size as the Galaxy S3 but made the screen .2-inches bigger. We’ve seen many rumors of the Galaxy Note 3 including 3GB of RAM, and the new Exynos 5420 or Snapdragon 800 powering the beast.

How many of you are desperately awaiting Samsung to release the Galaxy Note 3? Hopefully it’ll come with Android 4.3 pre-installed. Wouldn’t that be a nice surprise? Let us know in the comments down below.
