A work-in-progress model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has seemingly once again tipped up online, as we count down to the device's debut later this year.
Posted by the TechKiddy, the handset in the blurrycam snap looks an awful lot like the prototype Note 3 that showed up on tech sites a few weeks ago.
That means that said phone’s square, Sony Xperia-style design is very much in evidence, rather than the more usual curved, ‘nature-inspired’ look Samsung favours for Galaxy devices.
Of course, no-one really expects this to mark a fresh approach from Samsung. Rather, it’s more likely that Sammy is looking to disguise the tester Note 3 to keep it away from prying eyes.
This is certainly the impression given by sketched renderings of the Note 3 sourced by Unwired View, where what the Daily Mail would doubtless call its “enviable curves” are "flaunted" for the paps.
The illustrations, which came from the Note 3’s manual, also appeared to confirm that the latest version of the stylus-toting phablet will feature a whopping 5.99 inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
A 13-megapixel camera with Xenon flash is ostensibly also on board, as is a Charles Atlas-style octa-core processor to handle the heavy lifting.
Samsung is set to debut the third-generation Galaxy Note at a special press event on September 4th at Berlin’s IFA mobile industry event.
