Samsung Galaxy Note III may come in multiple sizes

0. phoneArena 26 Jul 2013, 12:04 posted on

We have been having trouble sorting through the rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note III, because original reports had the device launching with a 6-inch display, while more recent reports have been saying it will be a 5.7-inch display. It turns out that both may be right, because the new theory is that the Note III will launch in multiple sizes...

Because there are three main races in the world - Caucasoid, Mongoloid, and Negroid.

I'm sure you can figure out which one Asians fall under.

Just don't read those rumors. Just wait for their conference like I am. I doubt it will get shown off at IFA 13'.

Remember that Exynos 5 Octa was broken because it had a non functioning cache coherent bus. I just read on Anandtech that it's been fixed on the new Exynos 5 Octa. This means that battery life will be much better on the Note 3 if it gets the new Octa.

I also saw on gfxbench.com that Adreno 330 is much faster than Tegra 4's GPU so the Snapdragon version of the Note 3 will be an outstanding performer too!

5.5 inch is the note 2 refresh or possibly the budget note 2 with snapdragon 600 installed.

different sized screens for different global markets?

( 5.7" for UK, 5.7" and 6.0" for US...)

Seeing as the US and UK both have LTE, I'd say we will both get a 5.7 and 6 inch version. If such a size variation exists, the 5.7 inch is the budget version and the 6 inch is the premium version, i sincerely hope this is true as i wasn't going to settle for a small 5.7 inch screen.

Just like Samsung has the Galax Tab (lower end) series tablets along with the Note tablets (premium), there is the Galaxy Mega (low end) and the Note phablet (premium).

Agreed! We've seen Samsung create s series mini versions, why not a Samsung Galaxy Note III mini version.
