Galaxy Note III details leak again: 6" Full HD panel with diamond pixel structure, as compact as the Mega 5.8

Galaxy Note III details leak again: 6
The latest rumor about the upcoming Galaxy Note III confirms that Samsung is prepping it to be a killer device, and about the only variable in the moment is whether the YOUM flexible display yields will be enough for mass production of what the source deems to become the company's "most wanted device".

If the displays with a plastic substrate aren't ready for mass production yet, Samsung will apparently go with a "casual" 5.99" Full HD Super AMOLED panel, with the same novel diamond pixel structure we find on the excellent Galaxy S4 screen. The bezel is said to be very thin, and the whole thing will be as compact for the screen size as the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8, which is pictured in the thumbnail.

Equally impressive are the reiterated internals, such as an Exynos 5 Octa processor with eight-core Mali-450 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera, and a new phablet-y TouchWiz Nature UX to introduce some more good use out of such a large display, paired with a stylus. 

Introduction is said to be at the usual timeframe around the IFA expo in late August/beginning of September. No Key Lime Pie is murmured, as Google is apparently indeed putting the breaks on the release, but rather Android 4.2.2 or 4.3, which is expected to be introduced in two weeks at Google I/O.

Holy CRAP. It's only May 2nd & I am already drooling over this phone. I REALLY can't wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note III. Can you even imagine what a FULL 1080p 6" screen will look like? The beauty of it is MIND BLOWING. Looks like I need to wait a solid 6+ months before that phone will be mine. Well my 1080p HTC Droid DNA will do because that is STILL the best phone I have ever used, well until the Samsung Galaxy Note III comes out! Once you go 1080p you will NEVER go back!!!

eight-core Mali-450 GPU? Another old architechture which is only twice stronger than Mali400Mp4? So lame, and I don't think it's true. Mali-604T is not bad, so the newer Mali-628T or Mali-678T are better.

if they use the best gpu this year what will they use next year? its business they are running not a dream box for fan boys. Note 3 wont be any different from note 2 with a bigger screen.

You are so dead wrong about that. If anything, the note is now the main flagship or the Rolls Royce Phantom of the range whereas the S is just a standard S600 flagship, the S is the first half flagship whilst the Note is the main event flagship for the second half.

i pity you for believing in samsung so much. i liked samsung till their s2, s3 was ok for me so i bought it but after s4 i gave up on them i suggest you do it too. then you wont have any hard feeling when they fail to your expectation later.

Thanks for your pity/concern, but I won't be needing your pity anytime soon, son. What else is there to believe in, HTC? The sinking ship that is the Taiwanese firm, i'd soon place my bets on Huawei and LG eclipsing them round the global market, if they haven't already. Unlike some, I can actually afford a wealth and plethora of devices so I am not restricted to one band of brand, I use all the mobile OS platforms and several different OEMS, the only one i have neglected so far will be HTC, again I could snap the HTC One up anytime I can, but why waste money on something i'll likely sell based in hype and build rather than function.

"As compact as the Mega 5.8" =Oxymoron

That clicked on me too...the most compact as far as compact on huge devices go, is for me, the Note II. This thing, you'll have to hold it with two hands like you hold a PS III joystick.

Not really, I really like the look of the Galaxy S III & IV. I can tell them apart with no problem at all. They look different enough. Now the iPhone 4, 4S, & 5 is a different story because it's the SAME exact design on the 4 & 4S, & on the 5 it's just a longer phone with metal backing instead of glass. They have been making the same exact home button for the iPhone since 2007.

I call be on that I have used the S3 and S4, you can barely see the difference, up front they look the same, and feels the same, and Samsung also has made the home key since the S2, I don't get why Samsung wants to follow apple's footsteps. I have seen the displays of the new so called 1080p HD S4 and sadly the HTC One looks better, andyeah try to look at the S4 in direct sunlight, because you won't be able to see anything, not to hate on Samsung but is the same design with more features, but having performance issues, because of the added stuff, not good.

You haven't even seen the design of the Note 3, so shut up.

Interesting how a concept (Phablet) that was initially considered to be a niche device has gone mainstream. Being open to new ideas is how you get to steamroll your competition. Apple could learn a thing or two from Sammy.

Lets not kid ourselfs. "Phablet's" are still a "niche" device when compared to there smaller brothers (has they sell less units than they do). While I personally don't care one way or the other (I like both, :P). It's hard to deny that phablet's aren't quite at the level yet where they are matching there smaller brother's in sales. There might even be some hesitation on the manufatures side of things, after the Nexus 7 was released for only $300 (and that got you 32GB + cellular) and great specs for the time. They'd have a hard time justifying the price jump from small tablet to large phone, IMO. Though, if they can make some amazing software like Samsung did with the Note, the price jump might be justifiable.

What's with you dude? No offence, but you're like a chameleon. You change on every article...i've seen you call Samsung, Samdung and more and now you're like 'Wow'. I'm confused... I know you're excited and stuff like that, but If you're going to say things like you mean it...i would advice you not to call names.
