Rumors continue to circulate about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III. The replacement for Samsung's popular Galaxy Note II is expected to be bigger and better than ever.
The Samsung Galaxy Note III has shown up in blurry photos before. At least, the device in these photos is claimed to be the Galaxy Note III. One of the sources of the original leaked photos, @techkiddy, has returned with a few more images, stating they are from a Samsung Testing center. These shots are still blurry and still don't show us much of anything. All we can really see is a large, rectangular device with squared-off corners. There's nothing to really show us that this is the Samsung Galaxy Note III.
The latest rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note III have the device coming to market with three different screen options. We're not sure why this would happen, so take the information with a grain of salt. The device is rumored to have a 5.7 inch, 1080 x 1920 Full HD screen. A premium version of the phone will have a flexible OLED display. The version heading to Asian markets will have a Super AMOLED FHD display, and there will be a LCD Full HD display on the European variant. Again, we're not sure this makes sense, but it's what we're hearing.
Under the hood, we'll have two different processors for the Galaxy Note III. The Asian variant will be powered by an Exynos 5420 SoC while the International version will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip. The Snapdragon version is said to be clocked at 2.3 GHz.
The rumored specs for the device are as follows:
- 5.7 inch Full HD display
- 2.3 Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 in the international model
- Exynos 5420 SoC in the version for Asian markets
- 13 megapixel rear-facing camera with anti-shake feature
- 3 GB of RAM
- Wi-Fi 802.11ac
- LTE connectivity
- S Pen support
- Android 4.3
That's all we know for now. Samsung is holding an Unpacked Event on September 4th, just before IFA Berlin kicks off. We are expecting the Galaxy Note III to be announced then, with a release date to follow. What do you think? Are these images real? Are you going to pick up a Galaxy Note III this fall? Let us know in the comments.
