Details of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 were brought closer into focus today, after a Samsung source appeared to corroborate chatter of just what to expect from the third take on the phablet.
According to an insider at the gadget-manufacturer cited by TechKiddy, the third-generation Note’s (pictured below in an earlier leak) spec sheet will take in a 5.7-inch screen.
Samsung purportedly ditched the 5.9-inch screen that was mooted to be board in the wake of lukewarm consumer responses to the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3, the unnamed deepthroat claims.
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, which was unveiled yesterday along with the Google Nexus 7 will also be board when the phone drops in late September, the report states. This jars with speculation in some quarters that the Note 3 would run the forthcoming Key Lime Pie version of Android.
And completing the spec sheet is 3GB of RAM and Snapdragon 800 chipset, which is compatible with super fast LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) technology. This is capable of speeds up to double those of standard 4G LTE.
Previous leaks indicate that a 13-megapixel camera with Xenon flash will be present too, as well as a gym-buffed octa-core processor that kicks sand in the face of wimpier smartphones.
Samsung is now expected to showcase the Note 3 at a special press event on September 4th at the IFA tech beano in Berlin, possibly alongside what would be the company’s first-ever smartwatch.
