Galaxy Note III, the upcoming large smartphone from Samsung, has made yet another appearance online, with its hardware specifications allegedly confirmed by a source from the handset vendor itself.The upcoming member of the popular Galaxy Note family is expected to make an official appearance on September 4 at IFA in Berlin, and should pack a 5.7-inch touchscreen.
Previously, the smartphone was rumored to have been designed with a 5.99-inch display, and it seems that Samsung has indeed tested such as model, though it eventually opted for a smaller design.
According to Korea’s Business Daily, the Galaxy Note III will also hit shelves with a Snapdragon 800 processor packed inside, and with support for LTE-Advanced connectivity.
Furthermore, the smartphone will include 3GB of RAM, being among the first handsets in the world to feature such a large amount of memory.
The upcoming device will also feature a small bezel, which should allow it to keep roughly the same size as last year’s Galaxy Note II, which was launched with a 5.5-inch touchscreen display.
At the same time, it is said to sport an outer design similar to that of Galaxy S4, including the metallic stripe around its body.
Supposedly running under Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system, the Galaxy Note III should prove to be one of the fastest and most powerful such smartphones on the market (LG’s G2, set to be unveiled on August 7, should also pack a Snapdragon 800 CPU and 3GB of RAM).
As mentioned above, Samsung should make the handset official at the IFA 2013 trade show in Berlin in early September, which means that official details on specs and features will be unveiled only at that time.
Until then, however, you can have a look at some more leaked photos with the Galaxy Note III, available courtesy of TechKiddy.
