Samsung Galaxy Note III ‘confirmed’ to have 5.7-inch screen, 3 GB of RAM, and Android 4.3
Samsung’s big launch for the second half of this year will undoubtedly be the Galaxy Note III. We’re expecting it to become official in the first few days of September. Until then, though, the leaks about this handset are bound to continue at a staggering pace.
This time around, there’s once again talk about the phablet’s specs. And a publication from Samsung’s native South Korea has claimed to have confirmed some details about the Note III.
It will reportedly sport a 5.7-inch touchscreen, 3 GB of RAM, and Android 4.3 on board from day one. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset will be used for the LTE versions of the device, including the one to be sold in Korea. This will support LTE-Advanced, the fastest network standard there is. In parts of the world where LTE isn’t yet available, we might see a variant of the Galaxy Note III powered by the new Samsung Exynos Octa processor that was unveiled a few days ago.
The screen’s resolution will obviously be Full HD 1080p. Apparently Samsung considered many different sizes before settling on 5.7 inches. The Galaxy Note II went from 5.3 to 5.5 last year, so this .2 inch increase makes sense at least from a historical perspective.
