The Samsung Galaxy Note III SM-N9006 is reportedly a variant of the upcoming phablet that will support LTE-A connectivity. This particular model showed up on Picasa. The leak also revealed that the phablet features a camera capable of taking an image with 4128 x 2322 pixels. According to Sam Mobile, this could be equivalent to 10 megapixels. It had been earlier rumored that the Note III will have a 10-megapixel camera, giving some credence to this leak. However, what potentially gave away the LTE-A support is the model number. The Samsung Galaxy S4 had the model number GT-I9506. Meanwhile, the same smartphone’s standard LTE variant had I9505. Following such logic, the SM-N9006, which also ends in 6 like the GT-I9506, could be the LTE-A variant.

The Samsung Galaxy Note III SM-N9006 joins the list of three variants of the phablet that just yesterday appeared in another leak. Such variants include the SM-N900, SM-N9005, and the SM-N9002. These three variants differ in terms of their processors, GPUs, and connectivity options. The SM-N900 will supposedly support 3G whereas the SM-N9005 will support LTE. The SM-N9002, meanwhile, will offer dual-SIM standby support along with 3G connectivity.
The Samsung Galaxy Note III is expected to arrive with 3 GB of RAM, a camera with Optical Image Stabilization, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot, and a 3200 mAh battery. Some components that are dependent on which market it is heading include the processor, which could be a 1.8GHz octa-core Exynos 5420 or 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, and the GPU, which is either ARM Mali-T628 MP6 or Adreno 330. The device will break cover on September 4th during IFA in Germany.
