Samsung GALAXY Note III specs: 8-core processor, 6.3 inch screen?

0. phoneArena 16 Jan 2013, 16:53 posted on

A story about Samsung's chip business in the Korea Times had a little extra information that is very pertinent to our readers; it seems that inside the story is a mention of some of the specs of the Samsung GALAXY Note III which is expected to be released something in the second half of this year and should offer a 6.3 inch screen and a Samsung Exynos Octa CPU...

I wonder what the amount of RAM will be for the note 3 and the next iterations of the Galaxy Tablets. I reckon we'll see the 2560x1600 powering Sammy's next tablet but could we be seeing the Note 3 equipped with 3GB of RAM? 6.3 inches if done right by reducing the bezel could be a hit. I say bring it on.

I'm almost there with you, but I'm not totally sold on the 6.3 inch screen just yet. I thought the 5.5 was pushing it at first, but now it seems perfect. So Im kinda hoping they stop there. We'll see what happens.

all depends on how much bezel there is.

DOESN'T MATTER SINCE THE NOTE 3 WILL USE A LAST GEN GPU. THE IPHONE WILL BEAT IT NO PROBLEM

The current iphone can't touch the Galaxy Note 2. Stop fooling yourself if it wasn't for Samsung Apple iphone wouldn't be what it is today. Samsung makes all iphone main components since apple iphone existed. Don't get it twisted Samsung pisses on Apple all day long.

Too much grass may give hallucinations. Galaxy Note first of all still don't have any competitor in market. iPhone won't be able to crawl when next Note will flex its 8 packs.

Just remember this is all speculation. While this is the second time I have heard of a 6.3 inch rumor, it is still just a rumor. I do think it is possible to have a 6.3 inch screen that won't take up that much more space than the current Note II. Like others have mentioned, it will depend on the size of the bezel. Also, don't forget about Samsung's flexible screen they showcased at CES. It is possible to have a large device that can be folded down to fit in your pocket (in this case, perhaps a 6.3 inch phone could be folded in half to take up the same space as a 4 inch device).

Now onto the obvious troll, I am sure you realize that the Note does not in anyway compete with the iPhone. That is left to the Galaxy S line of devices.

Speculation this is not it was reported in October and posted directly from Samsung tomorrow and Samsung USA Twitter and Facebook pages. Samsung has a history of being very open to it's fans and direct customers giving you good fair warning on products in the pipeline. To blog sites such as this all can claim it to be rumor but since i have been an owner of Samsung products totalling 4 and awaiting my 5th and 6th Samsung product come June and November 2013 i am sure this is NO RUMOR it's fact. No product in 2013 will be better period.

With 6.3 inch screen it will become a tablet, will not longer remain a phablet which will be difficult to use it as a phone

well realisticly a bezelless phone could be up to 6.25 inches without actually surpassing the footprint of the note 2.

A phablet is any device between 5.1-6.9 inches, so no it would not be considered a tablet.

Agreed with MistB, If done right it could be a hit. Look at the difference between the 5" LG View (Their POOR attempt at a "phablet") it is a square and looks HUGE not to mention it very hard to hold and operate. Also the stylus isn't even attached. Now look at the Note 2 which has a screen of 5.5" yet MUCH more aesthetically pleasing. Also the Stylus is built into the device and flush.

So their are proper and improper ways of executing a phablet device. Samsung seems to have the formula for it and I don't think they will disappoint on the Note3(assuming there will be a Note3 but most signs point to yes). Hopefully the physical dimensions of the Device don't go up by much, Rather the bezel and gap between the top and bottom are used more Adequately.

I have faith in Samsung tough But before I speculate further on the Gn3 I am more interested atm in the Gs4

The really pushing it with that 6.3, very soon would need both hands to hold a phone to your ears, lol.

There is NO WAY Samsung would get that stupid to kill the Note with such screen size.
The real Note successor will have 5.8 screen and the 6.3 version will be a niche device.
I'm willing to bet anyone on that

I am thinking the specs are for a 7 inch talet offering to stomp the iMini.

Maybe the product is called End of Mini?

As a note1 and note2 user I am willing to buy a 6.3inch more than a 5.8inch screen if the bazel done right. Will take the wager in a heart beat.
