The international version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is believed to be called the SM-N900 and that variant seems to have moved closer to launch as it has been spotted passing through a certification in Indonesia, a sign that the Galaxy Note 3 release has inched closer.

While the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch isn’t expected to arrive until early September, ahead of the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany, we’ve already seen the device leak out in a heap of rumors ahead of its arrival. The device is expected to possess a 5.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor either of the Exynos 5 or Qualcomm 800 caliber, a 13MP camera, and a design that mirrors the Galaxy S4. There are rumors that Samsung could be planning several different variants of the Galaxy Note 3, including cheap and premium devices, though that remains uncertain.

This is the first certification we’ve seen for the Galaxy Note 3 though it certainly won’t be the last. Devices typically see several different certifications before they are released and this certification in Indonesia is just one of hundreds that it will need to pass before it is released.

The Galaxy Note 3 is rumored to have several different model numbers, with several leaking out already. Here is how they breakdown at the moment.

  • SM-N900 – International version based on Samsung Exynos SoC
  • SM-N9005 – International version based on Snapdragon SoC (Possibly Snapdragon 800)
  • SM-N900A – AT&T Galaxy Note 3
  • SM-N900T – T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3
  • SM-N900V – Verizon Galaxy Note 3
  • SM-N900S – Sprint Galaxy Note 3
  • SM-N900R4 – Unknown
  • SM-N900P – Unknown

AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon have yet to confirm the Galaxy Note 3 though that should change in the weeks ahead as they look to offer the next-generation phablet.

    I really hope they don’t spoil it by only having a meagre 16Gb version available here in Europe. I know that I can use a card but internal memory is far faster to access and more convenient – plus I still have the option for a card if I want.

    I know Samsung lost a lot of sales in Europe due to the S4 only being available with 16Gb whereas in the Far East and the USA, the 32GB variant was available.

      32 was on 1 carrier for months then another finally picked it up… still think it is only on 2 carriers maybe 3. Pretty sad when it is announced 16 32 64 and 16 is out with a small trickle of 32… WHERE IS THE 64?????

    She’s probably paid to post spam rubbish on forums. Nobody earns serious money just working a few hours. Even if she did earn $84 an hour, she would have had to spend 232 hours working on the internet last month – hardly “a few hours” – it’s actually nearly 12 hours a day assuming a five day week. No wonder your friend is divorced!
