Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Details Revealed
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 was expected to be the next release from Samsung although this appears to be put slightly into disarray as Samsung prepares its Galaxy Mega “phablet” (phone+tablet) which is touted as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 under a new name.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, if we put aside Galaxy Mega speculations for now, is expected to run on a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor. This combines an ARM Cortex A15 and Cortex A7 to give the user four powerful cores and four energy sipping cores. In total eight cores of processing power will give the Galaxy Note 3 some serious punch. The Galaxy Note 3 also gets the extremely capable PowerVR SGXX 544MP3 GPU as well.
One potential issue for Samsung is that they may struggle to get enough supplies of the Processors and GPUs needed to make this device. That said, seeing the device run a Qualcomm Snapdragon (600 or 800) and an Adreno 320 GPU is also a viable option.
In the RAM department the Galaxy Note 2 already had 2GB of high speed RAM so this may not change, although 3GB is most definitely possible. Screen size is the big bone of contention and rumours vary wildly, but the 6.3 inch super AMOLED screen seems to be the most likely option based on industry sources.
Storage is expected to be 32, 64 or 128GB with the option to add more via the usual micro SD slot. As we mentioned, the critical point of debate remains about whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be the Samsung Galaxy Mega. This seems likely as the speculation about both products seems to be returning more-or-less the same specifications.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 currently sells like wildfire with a price of $575 so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Note 3 arrive at $650 upwards. Availability is touted for after the 2013 IFA event in Berlin, so late August 2013. What do you think about the prospect of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3? Do the specifications look good? Would you buy one at $575?
