We’ve been chasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for a good few months now, and seen a plethora of spec leaks from tipsters in the process. Today, however, we’ve got something a little more concrete: a complete list of specs sourced from none other than the Korean company itself. WAP provisioning files found on Samsung Mobile’s website confirm two devices with the model numbers SM-N900T and SM-N900A, both of which refer to the Note 3, and also a run-down of some of the specifications. Details after the break!
The Galaxy Note ‘phablet’ range has famously borrowed much of its hardware and design from the flagship Galaxy S models, and with these now all-but confirmed specs, it would appear the Note III has been built very much in the image of the Galaxy S4. With 3GB of RAM and full HD 1,080 x 1,920 res display allied to an ARM11 processor, it’s every bit the powerhouse we would expect at this stage, and although we don’t know how the camera will measure up just yet, the reports of a 13-megapixel snapper (as per the S4), wouldn’t seem too far from the money.
We’d expect the device to ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right off the bat, and if you’ve been on the lookout for and premium smartphone with a large display, you’ll certainly struggle to find a stronger candidate than the Galaxy Note 3.
Interestingly, it has also been rumored that Samsung will branch out and offer multiple versions of the Note 3, as it has done time and again with the Galaxy S range. Following the release of the Galaxy S4 just a couple of months ago, Sammy quickly announced a bunch of follow-up handsets including the downsized Galaxy S4 mini, the photo-centric Galaxy S4 Zoom, and the so-called ruggedized Galaxy S4 Active, complete with a water and dust-proofing layer.
What this will mean in terms of the Note 3, however, remains to be seen. A Galaxy Note mini is surely just an S4, but with more and more consumers seeming to buy into the water-resistant theory and an even greater number ditching their standard cameras in favor of their smartphones, I wouldn’t be surprised if the company pushes a Galaxy Note 3 Active or Galaxy Note 3 Zoom at some point in the future.
It will be really interesting to see what features the Note 3 will bring to the table once it’s officially announced by Samsung.
