Rumors about the next generation Galaxy Note phablet have been popping up on the web on and off for the last few months. Some of them seemed to be linked to the recently announced Galaxy Mega lineup, while others claim to relate solely to the Galaxy Note III. There was even a leaked photo that was believed to picture the device, but it was soon rejected as fake. It turned out that the phone portrayed in the photo was actually ZOPO ZP950, which was later confirmed by an email received by SamMobile.
More rumors about Samsung Galaxy Note III
The specs rumored for the Samsung Galaxy Note III are utterly impressive, though they make you wonder if it is still a smartphone or a tablet already. First of all, because, the device is believed to house a 6-inch display. The actual size is 5.99 inches, but it is safe to assume that Samsung will round it up to full 6 inches. The Galaxy Note III is expected to be powered by a 2 GHz Exynos 5 Octa chip and offer 3 GB of RAM, though we would take the last part with a grain of salt. Other devices were believed to launch with 3 GB of RAM but so far none actually did.
It also appears that Samsung is playing with the design. Our sources claim that the company considers three options. One is a typical Samsung design, something in the likes of the Galaxy S4. Another is supposedly “very different”. Since the term is very broad and could mean a whole lot of things, we are not even tempted to speculate. Finally, Samsung may be looking to bring flexible display to the table. This alternative, however, seems to be the least probable of all. Apparently, such technology is still under development and is not ready to be implemented in a commercial product.
