We are only two days away from Samsung’s big announcement at IFA 2013, when the South Korean company will officially present the Galaxy Note III – its third-generation stylus-friendly phablet.
Until then, EVleaks has posted an About screen of the SM-N9005 (which is the LTE-capable version of the new Note), plus an AnTuTu benchmark screenshot. Unsurprisingly, these reveal that the device runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Reportedly, the Note III SM-N9005 will have a quad-core 2.3GHz processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800), and 2.5GB of RAM – not 3GB, as previously rumored.
The display of the Note III will definitely be a Full HD one (1920 x 1080). It looks like there will be a cheaper model that sports an LCD screen, while the regular, more expensive Note III is getting an AMOLED panel. Another alleged difference between the two versions is the rear camera: 8MP vs 13MP. As for the screen size, this will likely be 5.68 inches regardless of the model.
EVleaks has it that the S Pen functionality of the Note III is “the same” as on the first two Notes.
The Galaxy Note III should be available to purchase starting later this month. We’ll let you know more on September 4, when Samsung will finally announce the device.
