UPDATE: We've added two snaps comparing the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 2.
Nobody can deny that Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 has received its fair share of coverage, even though, as far as the South Korean company is concerned, keeping things a surprise would have been preferable. Unfortunately for Samsung, it would appear that secrecy has become an increasingly elusive target these days.
With IFA 2013 just around the corner, leaks are becoming more and more informative in their nature and appeal, but one thing has been missing. Namely, while we think we know plenty about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the looks of the device itself have been the one area where Samsung has managed to keep the lid firmly shut – prototype devices have been plentiful, but we haven't seen the actual device just yet. Today, this has changed at least partially, for a new set of images, sourced from somewhere within Samsung's supply chain in China, we suppose, claim to be showing us the screen that will come packed in the fully assembled Galaxy Note 3.
Looking at the screen, we're happy to report that the bezels have shrunken considerably in size from all directions in comparison with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3's predecessor. What's more, while we can't tell exactly how the device will end up looking with the frames attached, it does seem like the Note 3 will be more rectangular in shape, with less pronounced rounding at the corners. Of course, this is still every bit the Galaxy design language that we've come to expect from Sammy.
Obviously, as plausible as these may look, we'd suggest you hold on just a little longer before jumping to any conclusions.

7. The two screen assemblies have been scaled to match, so the Galaxy Note 3 (right), while sporting a longer diagonal, will be negligibly bigger than its predecessor, the Note 2 (left)
