Could the Samsung Galaxy Note III have 3GB of RAM?

0. phoneArena 03 Jul 2013, 15:14 posted on

Earlier today, we heard that the LG Optimus G2 could be the first mobile device on the market with 3GB of RAM, but now we may have a race on our hands. A new rumor is saying that the Samsung Galaxy Note III could also feature 3GB of RAM, so it's really a matter of which gets to claim the title of "first!"...

64 mb? are you mad? it is not pc or gaming laptop.
8mb is enough for this.

8mb is overkill, I think it at max only needs 8096KB of ram

That's probably my sweet spot right there. It will allow a nicely laggy experience contrary to the normally stutterless Android experience.

that will make the Note III more relevant because it would be a first to have that much RAM in a cellphone. im starting to think that the tablet industry could be affected by the size and internal specs of a cellphone

No.. Optimus G would be the first phone to carry 3gigs of ram. Samsung isn't first in bringing something new everytime.

It also needs to include a 32GB of internal memory and a 64GB verison also available.

They should also include those batteries that they have been secretly engineering. You know, the ones that last over a week. And a screen that has the sexiness of the AMOLED but the brightness range and viewable angles of LCD's.

I'd be happy if it didn't look like every 2012 and 2013 Samsung smartphone.
The Note series is awesome but having a phone that is visually distinctive is as important as it being powerful.

Because I buy my phones unlocked and would rather my $600+ dollar phone look different than a person who paid $150 for theirs. Same thing with a car, don't want a Mercedes to look like a Chevy.

Yup, all the sheep wish they could have the freedom of chosing a bigger better phone instead of being told what they need.

Rest assured if the Galaxy S4 has LTE Advanced and 5G Wifi, the note 3 most certainly will. Somehow I think the Snapdragon 800 won't be enough to differentiate the Note 3 from the other phablets and super sized phones like the G2 when all flagships will be clocked at 2.3 ghz, throw in an Intel Baytrail with 4GB of RAM then we're talking. Knowing Samsung i'd be very surprised if there isn't more than two versions of the Note 3 already in the works, a snapdragon 800 with a smaller screen @ 5.7-6 inches and an Exynos Octa for a larger sized variant @ 6.3 inches with 3GB of ram

This is possibly my phone of 2013 :D Hopefully they make the design better though...

Don't see anything wrong with a hypothetical design based off the S4 (although I'd change the material to carbon fibre), I personally find the Sony and htc's very boring to look at by comparison after seeing them in person on more than 15 occasions.

Maybe it's because you have been looking at it for too long XD
Using Carbon fibre would be nice, but I don't think Samsung will change drastically.
I don't mind the phone being plastic, but they can surely improve the design.

I wonder if they will change the design.... With the galaxy s1 and s2 were similar. 3 and 4 are similar. s5 will be different for sure based on the trend. I wonder if they will keep that trend for the note series if so then it should be a new design.

32. alltechinside (Posts: 236; Member since: 21 Apr 2013)


But Note series is looking similar to the galaxy s series (Note vs Galaxy s2, Note 2 vs Galaxy S3), I won't be surprised to see the same design (Galaxy S4) though. But a man can dream :D

No...i'll wait till they release a phablet or phone that runs on a 5gb Ram.

And internal memory of atleast 1tetrabyte.

Anything beyond 2GB would be dangerously approach the 32-bit virtual space addressing limit. Given that current ARM chips are capped at physical addresses ranging from 2.5-3.5GB and that the hardware too needs some dedicated memory the usable amount would likely sit in the range of 2.5GB. Android doesn't need more than 2GB anyways.

HARDLY UNLIKELY, phones with 2GB RAMs are still waited to be seen in other parts of the world!
