Samsung’s hugely anticipated Galaxy Note 3 and the much-hyped Galaxy S4 ‘Zoom’ have been seemingly confirmed on one of the phone-maker’s websites.
Spotted by the eagle-eyed types at TechTastic, the threequel to Samsung’s world-beating phablet and the much-rumoured camera-focussed variant of the Galaxy S4 have been inadvertently leaked on the Samsung Kazakhstan website, all-but-officially confirming the devices’ existence.
The Galaxy Note 3 (model name SM-N9000) and the Galaxy S4 Zoom (model SM-C1010) were uncovered on a web page detailing VIP services for the region.
Alas, there was not a scrap of information to be seen about the handsets themselves. However, as far the rumour-mill would have us believe, the Note 3 is expected to debut a 13-megapixel camera just like the Galaxy S4, plus a two-megapixel front-facer and possibly a six-inch, full HD OLED display with improved stylus support.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom, meanwhile is hotly tipped to feature a whopping 16-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom, image stabilisation and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support, making it inarguably the most impressive cameraphone to date.
Both devices are also dead cert to bring Samsung’s latest TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 interface along with the latest version of Android.
Although it’s purely conjecture at this point, the Galaxy Note 3 is likely to be one of the first devices to launch with the as-yet unofficial Android 4.3, which as far as we know, will still be called Jelly Bean.
Samsung is expected to officially raise the curtain on the Galaxy S4 Zoom at a media event it’s hosting at London on June 20th, where it’s also going to unwrap its next Window Phone-powered device.
The Galaxy Note 3, though, is unlikely to be announced before the third quarter, with analyst forecasts pointing to an unveiling at the IFA 2013 expo in September.
