Galaxy Note 3 Photos, Details and More Leak as Launch Approaches



The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is set for a debut at IFA 2013 on September 4th, putting us in the home stretch for Galaxy Note 3 rumors and leaks.

Samsung is doing a pretty good job of keeping the Galaxy Note 3 under wraps, but as we move within a few days of the Unpacked 2 event, new Galaxy Note 3 photos, details and information is trickling out of Samsung and supply chains.

Samsung is already pushing out teasers for IFA 2013 including a new video that essentially claims aliens are responsible for the technology found inside the Galaxy Note 3 and leaked Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Oddly Samsung is not pushing out a collection of teaser Galaxy Note 3 videos like we saw with the launch of the Galaxy S4 and with the Galaxy Note 2.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 event just two days away, here’s a quick look at the latest Galaxy Note 3 leaks and rumors that came out over the long holiday weekend.

Galaxy Note 3 Photo of Prototype

We are still waiting for an official look at the Galaxy Note 3, but a new leak from TechKiddy shows what appears to be a Galaxy Note 3 developer unit or prototype.

The image above shows a large screen device that the tipster says features very slim bezels and less rounded corners. This is not likely a finished product, so expect a Galaxy Note 3 with more polish and possibly a thinner body when Samsung announces it, but this photo does look similar to the leaked parts photos.

Another Galaxy Note 3 Release Date Rumor

There are no shortage of Galaxy Note 3 release date rumors flowing this close to the launch event, and yet another rumor points to an incredibly fast Galaxy Note 3 release.

HardwareZone claims an inside source that previously provided Samsung release info states the Galaxy Note 3 release date is set for September 27th in Singapore.

This lines up with a previous leak from eTrade, which says Galaxy Note 3 pre-orders would start on September 16th and the release would arrive on the 27th.

If true, this is further support of a rapid Galaxy Note 3 release, as it took Samsung two months after the Galaxy Note 2 event to release in Singapore.

Galaxy Note 3 Wallpaper

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 wallpaper may not be that interesting at first glance, but it does come with one clue that matches previous rumors. Evleaks shared the following photo which is reportedly the default lockscreen wallpaper.

The resolution is 1920 x 1920 which lines up with a 1920 x 1080 resolution for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. There is no way to confirm the screen size from this leak or that this is a real wallpaper, but Evleaks is generally a reliable source. Download the original Galaxy Note 3 lockscreen here.

Galaxy Note 3 LTE Certification

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LTE model is ready for that fast release date, passing through the Global Certification Forum. SamMobile discovered the listing for the SM-9005, which matches with previously leaked Galaxy Note 3 model numbers.

More Snapdragon Powered Note 3 Devices

Rounding out the collection of Galaxy Note 3 rumors is a claim from Ittoday that the Korean Galaxy Note 3 will come with a Snapdragon 800 processor.

The Note 3 could come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor in South Korea.

Samsung is reportedly working on several versions of the Note 3, some of which will use the Exynos Octa 5 processor while others will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. The internal document from South Korean carrier KT shows a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor destined for the Note 3 instead of the Samsung made Exynos.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 should include a 5.7-inch 1080P Display and include new S Pen features as well as a new design that borrows heavily from the Galaxy S4’s looks and design.

      Research shows that a “plastic” phone is less likely to be damaged throgh dropping and mobile and wifi signals don’t have to have special allowances made for them. I like the look of the HTC One aluminium body but I would rather have something more rugged.

      if it isn’t ‘plastic’ you can still buy a neat ‘rubber’ case for the device ;-)

        Most people buy cases anyway so I don’t understand all the fuss about what the phone is made out of. I think people just like regurgitating what they’ve heard.

          You can get 3 times that if you sell it. I buy my phones unlocked though. You save more money in the long run.

      Luckily, both the Apple and Samsung phones will be announced in detail in thenext few days. We will then have some real specs to compare. I doubt if the new iPhones will have a screen ss large as the Samsung. They will also be unlikely to have a removable battery, a card slot or a stylus. As the worldwide sales figures show, the iPhone has some serious catching up to do with Android or they will become tomorrows Nokia.

        I wouldn’t go that far as to say that iPhone will become tomorrow’s Nokia but the have stopped innovating where Samsung and Google have taken over that front. The thing that Apple has over the old Nokia is an enormous ecosystem. People have way more invested in Apple than just the price of a phone. Apple can ride the wave of what they’ve built for a very long time without changing very much.
