Samsung had no trouble selling five million units of the Galaxy Note 2 in just two months, but attention has already shifted toward the next bigger thing in the Galaxy Note family. How do you top a flagship “phablet” that boasts a 5.5-inch screen, an improved S Pen stylus, a speedier 1.6-GHz quad-core processor and a slimmer design? Officially, Samsung hasn’t uttered a word about its plans for the Galaxy Note 3, but that hasn’t stopped speculation from spreading. Here’s a roundup of all the rumors flooding the Web.
Screen Expands to 5.9 or 6.3 Inches
Rumors have been inconsistent when it comes to a specific screen size, but it’s all but certain that we’ll see a larger display on Samsung’s next “phablet.” The Korea Times recently reported that a source from Samsung’s supply chain confirmed that the Note 3 will sport a 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080-pixel touch screen display. That’s up from 720p on the Note 2’s AMOLED screen. However, Samsung’s newly-announced GamePad accessory supports devices up to 6.3 inches in size, sparking suspicion that the Note 3’s screen will be that size.
