Sketch Claims to Show Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Details



A sketch, allegedly from the user manual of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, has emerged claiming to show off not only the device’s specifications, but the new Galaxy Note 3 in all its glory.

Several times in the past, we’ve seen photos emerge claiming to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. However, as we’ve pointed out, Samsung goes to great lengths to keep the designs for its flagship Galaxy smartphones under wraps and thus, consumers shouldn’t expect the actual Galaxy Note 3 to emerge until much closer to its release date. In the case of the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4, we saw several bogus images emerge ahead of their launches.

History is repeating itself with the Galaxy Note 3 it seems and today’s leak, from Dutch publication Sim Only Radar, claims to show a sketch of the SM-N900, a model number that is heavily rumored to be for the international Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The sketch is said to be from the user manual of the Galaxy Note 3 and not only show its design, which looks similar to the Galaxy S4, but its specifications as well.

The sketch suggests that the device will be using a 13MP camera with Xenon flash, a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, and two different processor chip sets including the Exynos 5 Octa and the Snapdragon 800. All of this is not out of the question and has been rumored to be on board the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

The sketch also shows that the device is running an unnamed version of Android Jelly Bean and while benchmarks have shown that it could be Android 4.2, it’ll more likely have Android 4.3 on board when it arrives.

While it would be great if this were the actual Galaxy Note 3 in all of its glory, consumers need to err on the side of caution. At this point, given that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch isn’t expected until early September, given Samsung’s history with leaked designs, given that Android is misspelled on the slide and finally, given how easy it would be to fake this, all signs point to this not being the Galaxy Note 3.

We should know in late August or early September whether this is accurate or not. Until then, take it with a grain of salt.

    I really hope the note 3 is not 5.7 inches…. that is too small of an increase…. the mega 6.3 is amazing after using it for a month and owning the note 2 as well…. After 6.3 i just can’t seem to go back to such a small screen regardless how much i love note 2 and s pen…5.99 should be the note 3 size or i don’t see a point in buying it guess it’s mega till a 6 inch note 4 comes out…sucks

      A phones successor is not all about the increased display size. Samsung likely doesnt want to increase the phones actual size so that ppl who have an s3, like me, are still interested.

      So in 2020 we should have 10″ phones? Don’t be stupid… 5.7″ is 0.2″ increase from Note2,like it was from Note1 to Note2. And it’s already enough. You can buy Note 8 with phone capability. Is this enough big for you?

    If this is real, why is “android” spelled incorrectly?

    I do hope it`s going to be 5.7″ cause that`s enough! All above – just buy a Tablet with Sim Card support! :/
    My biggest surprise is XENON FLASH?! Is it really going to happen`?! Finally ?! If so – I`m buying it no mater what! If it has Xenon – that will be my dream phone <3
    Big ( but not to big ) , fast , full HD , 13 MP camera …. ect + Xenon ?! What do I need more ?! Perfect! Great job Samsung if all above is correct ^_^
