Samsung has been stretching the size of smartphones with their flagships every year and this year they went ahead and brought a 6.3 inch device. But it all started with the Note series and the latest member to enter the Note family will be the Note 3 which is expected to be launched at the IFA 2013. Samsung could not keep the Note 3 under the wraps and an alleged image of the Note 3 has skipped on to the interweb.
The picture has Note 3 alongside the current Note series flagship, the Note 2. The Note 3 will grow in size and will come with a 5.9 inch screen and have a slightly larger footprint than the Note 2. The screen is expected to be a 1080p display unit and will be a big up from the current 720p display unit. It is rumoured to get the 13 megapixel camera unit found on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the front one will be a 2 megapixel unit.
The heart is where the things are going to get interesting. It is rumoured to come with an Exynos Octa Core processor with four of its cores of A15 architecture ticking at 2.0GHz whereas the remainder four cores will be of A7 architecture ticking at 1.7GHz. There will be a mammoth 3GB RAM complementing these cores and the performance the device is expected to deliver will be out of this world if these specs come true.
Samsung might choose to do what its done with the Galaxy S4 and give the device a choice of two hearts. In that case Note 3 might get a Snapdragon 800 for some markets. But all these are speculations and the truth will only be revealed when the device is launched officially. Take the images and rumoured specs with a pinch of salt as they may or may not turn out to be true.
