Are these the final specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note III?

Are these the final specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note III?
A published report on Monday lists what are believed to be the final specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note III. Of course, take this information with a grain of salt. According to this source, there will be two variants of the device, the SM-N900 and the SM-N9005. The device will come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions with most of the world getting the 16GB and 32GB model. While the screen is slightly bigger than the one on the Samsung GALAXY Note II, the dimensions of the body will remain the same.

The SM-N900 will feature a 5.68 inch Super AMOLED screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD). Under the hood is a 1.8GHz Octa-core Samsung Exynos 5420 processor with an ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU. The amount of RAM on the device is unconfirmed. A 13MP shooter with OIS will be on the back. Android 4.3 will be pre-installed and a 3200mAh battery will be on board. This model will not offer LTE connectivity.

The SM-N9005 will have the same screen size and specs, but the CPU and GPU are unknown. This unit will have 3GB of RAM inside. It will feature the same camera and battery as the other model, but will support LTE. We should mention that both variants will offer a 64GB capacity microSD slot.

Stand by, September 4th will be here before you know it!

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Sounds juicy. What are the chances that it'll have the exact same design as the s2, s3, note2, mega, s4, mini, etc etc etc?

And yet, none of its android competitors, nokia, and BB can't make a dent on their sales. How sad is that. Samsung's competitors are truly pitiful.

Technically the S2 was a different design. It will look the same as everything else though.

That is going to be a monster. TEMPTING! This and the LG G2 are what I'm aiming at. Either way, any will make me happy.

The note 3 will destroy the iphone 5s in sales, the features and specs of this device are way beyond those of the iphone 5s.

This Beast cannot be compared to the little Iphone. This is a PHABLET thats a tiny little phone

No, not even close. The Note 3 will definitely get much lower sales than the iPhone 5S. The Galaxy S4, a more widely accepted and spread out device, can't even match the sales of the iPhone 5, much less a niche device like the Note 3.

Technically, for at least the first two months it was out, the S4 did out sell the iPhone 5. Possibly the third, too.

Are you comparing their first months individually (September, October, November for the iPhone 5; March, April, and May for the GS4), or comparing the sales between them when the GS4 first released and the iPhone 5's demand was down? Because the iPhone 5 sold 5 million units opening weekend (3 days), and the GS4 sold 10 million units in a month. The iPhone 5 obviously has the advantage.

Just like its predecessor the Note 2 obliterated the sales of the iPhone 5. Oh, wait...

You had everything right but the sales.

If you think the note 3 will outsell the 5S, you're flat out stupid. As berserk (a real techie not blind fanboy) said. The s4 is the widely accepted device among consumers. Phablets are just coming outta the "niche" stage. We know you hate apple, but wise up kiddo

I dont think so, the note3 is aim at a niche market. the iPhone5s is aim at a mass market as one phone fit all type. samsung philospophy is one phone does not fit all, some like it big, some small, some cheap, some with windows....thats why they have hundreds of phones.

Wish this came on a 4.7 incher, but specs are looking amazing this will be a fantastic phone.

Exynos 5420 clocked at 1.8 only, come on Samsung why not 2.3Ghz like the S800? It has the enough battery to run at 2.3Ghz. 6xGpu wow.... know defeat that anyone? So this GPU is much better than PowerVrSgx 554MP4 in the iPad4....! So the 1.8Ghz is on par with the S800! So if clocked at 2.3Ghz by custom Roms and Kernels. Crapdragon® still fails with ExynosA15™

The iPad 4 will still have more raw power but it pushes 50% more pixels, so theoretically the Mali T-628 should have better on-screen performance, but iOS games are better optimized. The Exynos 5420 clocked at 1.8GHz will be around the SD800 @2.25GHz, the real question is, with properly working core migration, will heat and power efficiency match Qualcomm's solution? Chances are good that they will, yet LTE-able countries will get the SD800 like most S4 buyers got the SD600. It's okay, Qualcomm SoCs are better community supported.

It's not about how big hardware does Note 3 has it's all about optimization and how the software take hardware advantages. BTW IPad 4 GPU VRX 554MP4 it's a quad core GPU not single core GPU that's why it's still the most powerful GPU on tablet, smart phone in the market.

With this include 10 more ram hogging "S" features to bring the behemoth to lag? Hope not.

At least need to be able to disable those features. The lag on the S4 is pretty bad IMO

57. Jason2k13

you dont have an S4 then if you think the lagg is that bad. But heres some tipps to make it faster, turn off most of the features, set the animation speed to 1x or 0x at the developer section, dont set S-Voice as default for home button, and theres basically no lag. Or install Nova Launcher.
