A blurrycam photo of what we’re led to believe is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is doing the rounds in the tech press today, ahead of its anticipated arrival later this year.
Dug out of the web ether by Twitter user @PunkPanda, it’s hard to make out too much about the handset from the close-up of the screen that we’re presented with. But it’s still possible to discern the curved, ostensibly nature-inspired, edges that are the hallmark of top-end Galaxy kits.
It’s also noticeable that the rounded edges are in stark contrast to other purported leaked photos of prototype editions of the Note 3, which featured a sharper, more angular design.
According to the source of the leak, the handset packs a six-inch screen, with the display taking up 84 per cent of the fascia. That’s in line with previous rumours about the phone’s dimensions.
Evidence that an exceptionally expansive screen will be on board also appears to be corroborated by the noticeably small bezel around the phone’s display in the photo, as Samsung attempts to boost screen size without taking more space in your pocket.
Other putative specs for the device, at least if the rumour mill is anything to go by, take in an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 13-megapixel camera and version 4.2.2 of Android out of the box.
The Note 3 is expected to debut in September at Berlin’s IFA event.
