The world's worst-kept secret, aka the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, has emerged in another deluge of leaks, with two photos showing a svelte, bezel-challenged handset tipped for an August release.
The two photos, which come from two separate anonymous sources over in China, aren't giving that much away, although we can see that the handset is pretty slender despite being housed in an ugly case.
There's no guarantee that the other picture is of the Note 3 either, but it shows a large looking screen that stops just shy of the edge of the handset and its photographer says that the screen "takes up 84 per cent of the front surface of the device".
However, as Unwired View points out, there's a worrying lack of front-facing camera (looks like just a proximity sensor) does leave us pondering whether this is just a fake. You can see the full images below:
Not much more concrete is the word from one loose-lipped Samsung wireless business division insider who claims that the handset should enter mass production in August.
Talking about a drop in orders for devices like the Galaxy S4, s/he told ET News: "Since we will start placing orders for follow-up models, such as Galaxy Note III, from August, the impact to suppliers will be minimal."
The word on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 so far has included a possible metal chassis, a 6.3- or 5.99-inch display, Android Key Lime Pie, a super-powerful octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM and a 13MP camera.
