A Koran publication has claimed that most variants of the upcoming Galaxy Note 3 flagship will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, rather than the Exynos 5420 octa core chipset. However, it doesn’t rule out the existence of the octa core variants, as about 20-30% of the units will be apparently running on the said chipset. We’re guessing most of the Snapdragon 800 running phablets will be concentrated towards North America, which has a massive market for smartphones. The handset will officially launch on September 4 as the successor to the widely acclaimed Galaxy Note 2 smartphone. The launch event will also be host to the unveiling of the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
The Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to pack a 5.7 inch 1080p AMOLED display, a 13MP main camera, 2MP front facing camera, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a mammoth 3,450 mAh battery. The Exynos 5420 variants of the Galaxy Note 3 will probably remain exclusive to Asia.
