Samsung Galaxy Note III now said to have 5.68″ 1080p AMOLED screen, 3 GB of RAM, 3,200 mAh battery
It really seems like every day brings with it a different set of rumored specs for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III (and sometimes, we get a few contradictory reports on the same day). This obviously has everything to do with the fact that we’re just a few weeks away from the official unveiling of this phablet.
According to information purportedly received from a “trusted insider” by SamMobile, the next Galaxy Note is going to have a 5.68-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 1.8 GHz Samsung Exynos 5420 ‘octa-core’ processor, 3 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), 16 / 32 / 64 GB of internal storage space, microSD card support, and a 3,200 mAh battery. It will apparently run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean from day one, but we already knew that.
As for the device’s size, it’s said to be exactly identical to the Galaxy Note II (while coming with a bigger screen). So expect tiny bezels on this one for sure.
There are going to be at least two versions of the phone. The SM-N900 will come sans LTE support, whereas the SM-N9005 will feature high speed data connectivity. The SM-N900 model is what will supposedly get Samsung’s octa-core CPU, and if the Galaxy S4 story repeats itself, then expect the SM-N9005 to sport a Qualcomm-made processor (probably the Snapdragon 800). Aside from the LTE support and the chipset, the two models have no reason not to be identical (again, we’re basing this on the situation with the Galaxy S4).
That said, do note that the amount of RAM in the Galaxy Note III is only ‘confirmed’ in this report for one of the versions. It’s the SM-N9005 that will come with 3 GB of RAM, while the number for the SM-N900 is ‘unconfirmed’ at the moment (according to this source at least).
Just a few hours ago, we heard that the Galaxy Note III would have a 3,450 mAh battery, and now this information contradicts that. Which is it going to be? Who knows. It’s clearly possible that Samsung has tested both capacities, and some people saw one of them, while others saw the other one. There may even be more battery capacities in prototypes out there. This is similar to what we kept hearing about the phone’s display size, until Samsung seemingly settled on 5.7-inches.
As all rumored things, do take everything you just read with a huge grain of salt. This can just be an educated guess by someone who’s been following the mobile world. And even if all this info was accurate at one point, it doesn’t mean that it still is – and that some specs haven’t changed.
All will be revealed on September 4, that’s for sure.
