Samsung Galaxy Note III to have the same plastic fantastic body like the Galaxy S4
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III will be built out of the same polycarbonate plastic that the Galaxy S4 is made of according to the latest insider rumors from SamMobile.

The disappointing news comes after we’ve previously heard the Galaxy S III won’t feature the futuristic flexible display we all hoped for. And now, after some rumors saying Samsung might adopt a metallic design for the next Galaxy Note phablet, those are shot down as well and it’d be plastic fantastic once again.

The Samsung Galaxy Note III will essentially follow the same design language like the Galaxy S4 with the same carbon patterned back.

Good news on the other hand is that the bezel on the Note III has allegedly been thinned out to become like the one on the S4.

Here is a quick rundown through the expected specifications for the third-generation phablet:

  • octa-core processor with quad-core 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 and quad-core 1.6GHz Cortex-A7
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • up-to-date version of Android with Samsung TouchWiz 
  • 5.99” Full HD AMOLED display

What the hell? Plastic? Come on Samsung, are you kidding me?

But this is just a rumor, let's hope that this isn't true!

I don't care if the phone is plastic or not. Remember a HUGE phone like the GN III will be very heavy if it were to be made of metal. Metal weighs more than plastic. All I want is that octa core, 3GB of RAM, 13MP camera & the insane 5.99" 1080p FULL HD screen.

The Samsung Galaxy S III, I am totally sold. Can't wait!

I am wondering how much RAM the Note III will ship with. I was a bit concerned when the GS IV shipped with only 2 Gb. I hope the Note III ships with at least 3 Gb of RAM.

Otherwise, I think the rumored specs match up to what will ship.

I think it will have 3GB of RAM because the phone is HUGE compared to the Samsung Galaxy S IV. With all that realestate on the Samsung Galaxy Note III, maybe they should put 5GB of RAM. lol

Nah for the next 2 to 3 years 3GB of RAM will be EPIC!!!

Although I am not a big fan plastic I don't understand how is plastic 'cheap' all of a sudden. I mean almost ALL phones (and by all I mean every other phone ever produced) except HTC One and iPhone 5 have plastic builds.

Just because a certain device uses 'premium' material that doesn't mean another device which uses plastic is cheap all of a sudden.

'Premium feel' of a product should not be given a priority over its features and specs IMO

The problem is not the cheap or premium feel, the problem is the build quality, the build quality on Samsung phones are bad, I know I will get thumbs down for saying that, but this is the truth.

I dont agree, the build quality is acceptable.. the weight of the galaxy s4 is not acceptable that makes the phone feels cheap.. With the weight of note2, it feels premium..

This is a Samsung article, so nobody cares about how the speaker cover comes out on the HTC One.

And, you failed.......xD

The thing is GS4's display has extremely thin bezel (all sides) when compared to iPhone 5. That is one big disadvantage with all phones with big screen and thin bezel.

If you compare GS4 with HTC One, in almost all videos you'll find that they stood next to each other. So its not about build quality or material but its how smartphones are evolving.

build quality is not determined by how quickly something smashes when I drop it.
