Report: 5.7 inch screen, LTE-A connectivity for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

0. phoneArena 05 Jul 2013, 12:57 posted on

A published report on Friday says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be coming to market with a larger 5.7 inch screen; the report matches a tweet sent out last month by reliable source evleaks. While this would be larger than the current 5.5 inch display on the Samsung GALAXY Note II, it is smaller than earlier forecasts of the screen size for the third iteration of Samsung's phablet...

Okay Gentlemen (and, I use the word sparingly in its' loosest form), let's stay on topic about the reported 5.7" screen on the Note 3; we wouldn't want the Moderators or Michael H's head(s) to eXplode??

Actually, Michael is the Moderator (FYI).

Wow so many rumors. I can't wait to see what the actual Samsung Galaxy Note III will be like.

Man I hope it has that flexible Super AMOLED 1080p HD screen.

Sorry, but I think samsung will use SD800 instead of exynos 5420 because SD800 have a LTE/LTE-A modem integrated in the chip so it'll be cheaper than using separated LTE/LTE-A modem like samsung G note II.
No doubt that qualcomm is the most succesfull chip maker in ARM world.

Not true. LTE is integrated on the Exynos 5 Octa. It was on the Exynos 4 in the Note 2 as well. Here's your proof:

Pardon me, you're right about Exynos 5. But the exynos 4 uses a separated LTE modem rather than integrated to the SoC.

It seems like a new rumor is put out by the chattering class on a weekly basis. Welcome to guerrilla marketing v. 2.0. 1.0 was where Sammy paid people to post negative things about its competitors. There was even an outbreak of v. 1.0 'marketing' here on PA. 2.0 attempts to be a bit more sophisticated.

I think 2K is the best screen resolution for Note 3 considering it have a powerful SoC(I'm sure it's SD800).

2K? What do you mean? 2K is 1920x1080 which the Note 3 will have at the very least.

Sorry i've made a mistake, it's supposedly a WQXGA screen(2560 x 1600)

You gotta show me a source for that. I find that highly doubtful for two reasons.

First: That would mean they're going back to a 16:10 aspect ratio like the original Note which would make the device very wide & unwieldy at that size.

Second: At 5.7", that would be a ppi of 530. If Samsung had managed to produced an AMOLED screen that dense, we would have heard about it by now.

Even if they went for a 16:9 aspect ratio (2560x1440), the ppi would be 515. Still higher than anything else at this point. No way what you're saying is true. It will have a 1920x1080 screen.

That's what I'm hoping for, the source is myself.

Well, 1080P is not bad.
So what I'm hoping for is 99% not coming out.

Can they at least take more advantage of the Snapdragon 800 and add a USB 3.0 port? I'm tired of these phones living in a peripheral past.

USB 3.0? That would only make the device thicker.
USB itself needs to make nano size usb ports/plugs with the ability to connect front and/or back.

More and more the G-Note 3 seems to be my next device. Hopefully they can keep the overall size the same as the G-Note 2...That may seal the deal..
