It was previously rumored that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could be launched in either Qualcomm or Exynos variants, and recent rumors have suggested that due to some issues with the Exynos 5420 chip, the Galaxy Note 3 could be launched with the Snapdragon 800 chipsets at the start while Samsung sorts the issue out. While Samsung has yet to confirm anything yet, it has been highly speculated that the handset could feature the Snapdragon 800 chipset and according to a leaked carrier document by South Korean carrier, KT, it has been “confirmed” that the Galaxy Note 3 will indeed launch with the Snapdragon 800 chipset on board.
This isn’t too surprising given that the Snapdragon 800 chipset is currently the only SoC that supports LTE-A networks, such as the one planned to be launched by KT later this month, and will offer users speeds of up to 150Mbps. Unfortunately apart from the “confirmation” of the chipset, the rest of the specs of the device remain unknown, although at this point in time the rumors are pointing at a 5.7” Full HD 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera that could capture 4K video, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean running the show.
In any case Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy Note 3 at their 4th of September event at IFA 2013 in Berlin, so be sure to check back with us then for the details!
