The next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Note is shaping up to be something of a giant, reports suggest, offering the best part of another whole inch of display acreage than the current-gen model.
According to Korean Times, the Galaxy Note 3 will be home to a positively gargantuan 6.3-inch screen which dwarfs the already pretty substantial 5.5-inch number that features on the Note 2.
In something of a real statement of intent in the processor one-up-manship that has replaced the megapixel wars as the major battlefront for smartphone makers, Samsung will also purportedly equip the Note 3 with an eight-core Exynos Octa processor.
By way of comparison, that’s double the graphics-shifting power of the Note 2, which packs a quad-core chipset.
Alas, the Korean Times hasn’t managed to unearth a ballpark figure for the release of the handset. But nonetheless assures us that we can expect it along later this year.
Assuming Samsung sticks to its current product refresh schedule, however, we can most likely pencil it in for late September.
