Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Specs Leak Suggests Two Models


As this year’s IFA conference approaches, more details and rumors about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 are circulating. The latest leak hints that Samsung will launch more than one variants of its Galaxy Note 3, similar to the international and U.S. editions of the Galaxy S4 from earlier this year. This is consistent with previous rumors. 

Sam Mobile reports that both versions of the device will come with a 5.68-inch display, which is nearly 0.2 inches larger than the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note 2. One version, allegedly dubbed the SM-N900, will feature Samsung’s 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos 5420 chip, an ARM Mali T628 MP6 GPU and a 13-megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilization. This N900 model will also reportedly come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants with a microSD card slot that allows for storage expandable to 64GB.

The other variant, which comes with the SM-N9005 model number, will have a different processor and GPU, which Sam Mobile says are unconfirmed. This N9005 configuration will also come with 3GB of RAM and LTE connectivity, unlike the N900 version. Both editions will come with the same storage options, camera, display, 3,200 mAh battery and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, according to the report.

We’re a bit skeptical on these specifications considering Galaxy Note 3 rumors have been inconsistent throughout the past few months. Previous reports have suggested that four Galaxy Note 3 variants are in the works, one of which is said to have a flexible display. Other reports, however, indicate that the Note 3 won’t be the first Samsung phone to sport a bendable touch screen and that only two versions will be released. The Korea-based manufacturer is expected to lay all these rumors to rest on Sept. 4 at its next Unpacked event, where the Note 3 is slated to make its grand debut just ahead of IFA.
