We’ve already seen POSTEL Indonesia confirm a device, the upcoming Nexus 7 made by ASUS, and now, Blog Of Mobile is reporting the same site confirming the Samsung Galaxy Note III with SM-N900 code attached to it. This only confirms what we already knew, since we saw this code in Samsung’s UAProf not long ago, but it’s always nice to have confirmation from more than one source.
The Galaxy Note III is expected to be announced at IFA 2013 in September, most likely on the 4th at a pre-IFA Samsung event. Samsung has already moved on from making announcement at major events and has gone completely solo when it comes to presentations, so we very much doubt they’ll be taking part in the IFA festivities.
The device should have a 5.7 inch full HD display at 1920 x 1080 resolution with a quad-core Snapdragon or an octa-core Exynos just like the Galaxy S IV but, with 3 GB of RAM instead of 2 and the same 13 megapixel camera from the flagship, obviously, a larger battery is also expected, to at least cover the huge display. Samsung has managed to keep the Galaxy S IV roughly the same size as its predecessor but with a bigger screen, and we can expect the Note III to be the same, similar in size to the Note II but with a bigger display.
A new S-Pen is likely to be designed with new capabilities and software, and maybe even the same floating touch display introduced with the S IV that allows user to interact with the display even if they’re wearing gloves, without the S-Pen.
Samsung has been throwing a boat load features into its devices lately, and the Note III won’t be an exception, we can expect a flood of apps and features to be crammed into the new Note like improvements to S-Health, S-Voice, Group Play, Watch On, Smart Stay, Air Gestures, Drama Shot for the camera, just to name a few.
Are you waiting for the Galaxy Note III? This year the options for a larger device have expanded with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, the LG Optimus G Pro or the upcoming Optimus G2 which is pegged to feature a 5.2 inch display.
