Could the Samsung Galaxy Note III have 3GB of RAM?

Earlier today, we heard that the LG Optimus G2 could be the first mobile device on the market with 3GB of RAM, but now we may have a race on our hands. A new rumor is saying that the Samsung Galaxy Note III could also feature 3GB of RAM, so it's really a matter of which gets to claim the title of "first!"...

64 mb? are you mad? it is not pc or gaming laptop. 8mb is enough for this.

8mb is overkill, I think it at max only needs 8096KB of ram

What about 1kb?

That's probably my sweet spot right there. It will allow a nicely laggy experience contrary to the normally stutterless Android experience.

that will make the Note III more relevant because it would be a first to have that much RAM in a cellphone. im starting to think that the tablet industry could be affected by the size and internal specs of a cellphone

No.. Optimus G would be the first phone to carry 3gigs of ram. Samsung isn't first in bringing something new everytime.

Finally, somebody talking about something that is relevant to today's demands.

They should also include those batteries that they have been secretly engineering. You know, the ones that last over a week. And a screen that has the sexiness of the AMOLED but the brightness range and viewable angles of LCD's.

I'd be happy if it didn't look like every 2012 and 2013 Samsung smartphone. The Note series is awesome but having a phone that is visually distinctive is as important as it being powerful.

May I ask why.

Because I buy my phones unlocked and would rather my $600+ dollar phone look different than a person who paid $150 for theirs. Same thing with a car, don't want a Mercedes to look like a Chevy.

Yup, all the sheep wish they could have the freedom of chosing a bigger better phone instead of being told what they need.

Rest assured if the Galaxy S4 has LTE Advanced and 5G Wifi, the note 3 most certainly will. Somehow I think the Snapdragon 800 won't be enough to differentiate the Note 3 from the other phablets and super sized phones like the G2 when all flagships will be clocked at 2.3 ghz, throw in an Intel Baytrail with 4GB of RAM then we're talking. Knowing Samsung i'd be very surprised if there isn't more than two versions of the Note 3 already in the works, a snapdragon 800 with a smaller screen @ 5.7-6 inches and an Exynos Octa for a larger sized variant @ 6.3 inches with 3GB of ram
