Rumours that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will pack a vast 6.3-inch display looked a bit less credible today, after fresh reports surfaced claiming that the phablet’s screen will be significantly smaller.
According to a rep from one of Samsung’s parts suppliers cited by Korea Times, the third-generation Note will instead pack a 5.9-inch screen. That’s some 0.5-inches larger than the screen on the current Note and tallies with previous speculation originating from the same site.
The Note 3’s display will also pack OLED technology and offer the same full HD resolution as the just-unveiled Galaxy S4, the insiders claim, underscoring its ne plus ultra credentials as a media device.
Anticipation that a larger screen would be on board stemmed from a packshot for the Game Pad games controller peripheral for the Galaxy S4. This specified that it was compatible with devices sporting screens up to 6.3-inches.
Samsung is purportedly set to showcase the Note 3 to US carrier AT&T this week, with some tech-watchers forecasting it could make its debut in September at Berlin’s IFA 2013 trade show.
As well fresh stylus-focused features, the phone’s USPs are expected to take in the same eye-tracking tech as the Galaxy S4 and a super-sinewy eight-core processor.
