PhoneArena needs to stop making articles about this phone because we dont know if these images are REAL or not. Lets wait until The end of the month to see the REAL thing. im as anxious as the next 3+ million people, but we'll see what it looks like and when it'll hit the US

They get ad revenue when they post these articles and people click on them. They won't stop.

You got fooled, PA. The guy on twitter even says that this is a mockup.

I can't imagine the real thing would look or be much different.

technically it looks to be nearly Identical to that fake "photo" that was put up earlier. They are probably related.

They even have the exact same "shading" for the bezel lines. My guess.. same artist, same base photo, different backgrounds.

i dont get the fascination with these things. I much prefer my S3. This thing is too big for a phone and too small for a tablet.

Hence the concept of CHOICE.. I don't get why you'd want the S3 when this beast is lurking around the corner! :P

The S3 works for you.. the Note will work beautifully for ME. See.. we can co-exist under such circumstances!

Yeah, I thought the same things about the big display devices myself... but then a friend of mine overseas got the precursor to the the first Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Player, before I'd ever even heard about it over here in the US and even being diminutive of size did nothing but rave about it.
I tried out the Note when it released here in-store and I have to admit, it swung my vote.

The quad Exynos isn't compatible with US LTE.

Well considering I don't have LTE in my area, and probably won't for a while, I'd take the quad-core Exynos with HSPA+ over the S4 with LTE. More power and better battery life, who can complain?

I have the international version, and Exynos is better than S4!
