The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 display, which has been rumored numerous times to be either 5.9-inches or 6-inches in size, may actually be smaller than expected with a credible source claiming that the Galaxy Note 3 display will be a little bit smaller and sit at 5.7-inches or .7-inches larger than the Galaxy S4 display.
All along, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumors have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 display will be much larger than the 5.5-inch display on the Galaxy Note 2. Rumors have suggested that the device will employ a 5.9-inch to 6-inch display which would make it a full inch larger than the Galaxy S4 display and about half an inch larger than the Galaxy Note 2 display.
It appears, however, that the Galaxy Note 3 display rumors have taken a twist with the well-sourced @evleaks claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will come with a 5.7-inch display and not a 6-inch or 5.9-inch display as has been rumored for months. This is clearly not official or confirmed, but it does throw a twist into the Galaxy Note 3 rumors that seemed to be taking shape well ahead of the Galaxy Note 3’s highly anticipated launch.
Should the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 arrive with a 5.7-inch display, it will be the same type of increase that the Galaxy S4 saw from the Galaxy S3. The Galaxy S3 possessed a 4.8-inch display while the Galaxy S4 checked in with a larger display, sitting at 5-inches in total. Samsung may be trying to avoid conflicting with the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, a 6.3-inch device, which is likely coming to the United States soon.

It’s also possible that it decided that a .5-inch increase was too much. It’s also entirely possible that one, or both of these rumors are wrong. However, given the track record from @evleaks, it’s hard to dismiss the 5.7-inch rumor, despite the weight of the 5.9-inch and 6-inch rumors.
Galaxy Note 3 display rumors should start to harden up in the weeks ahead as Samsung starts prepping for a Galaxy Note 3 launch. The device is said to be coming sometime in September, likely at IFA 2013, with production starting sometime in August.
