I honestly think this is a prototype. Similar to the first leak of the Samsung galaxy S3 (they had the phone wrapped into a square that looked similar to this). Besides, there's stickers on the front which sort of tells me its not the final design.

Who cares. Just another Samsung g4 with a different name. They add one or 2 different specs and its pure innovation.. LOL

It kind of looks like an ugly LG phone knockoff. Luckily this "leak" is pretty much a fake one.

I did not find any place else to comment on, sorry. Where was this news posted on PhoneArena ? Samsung Electronics Co lost $12 billion in market value on Friday.

I think the front looks better than the rounded mess they have been spewing out since the S3.. We can only hope they stopped with the cheap paint jobs aka hyper glaze

They should keep the screen at 5.5 and shrink the phone instead of using the extra real estate saved by making the screen 5.9 inches. The GS4 at 5 inches is perfect but the Note 3 should be smaller than the Note 2, not the same size with a bigger screen. The Options G Pro is going to be way more compact which is something Samsung shouldn't concede.

Exactly. Give them a few years and their note you will need to balance on yur feet and then use two hands to operate if this is the way size is going to increase. Maybe they will have a stylus which can double up as a walking stick also. :)

They can't go any bigger, no more bezel to shrink already.

But why go bigger in any case. Just because "Who-Why" got a 6.1 inch Ascend something phone?

I don't know. My guess is that at the board meetings they felt the Note 2 was compact enough and felt the extra real estate would be better off used for a screen size increase instead of a overall dimensions decrease. You and I both feel that they should go for the dimensions decrease but they are the ones with all the market data, not us. I guess people want a bigger screen instead of a more compact size.

If you think the Note 3 is big, wait until you see the Nokia, HTC, and your beloved Sony phablets. 6.3 inch Togari. And the HTC phone with a revolutionary subwoofer built in at 5.5 inch screen and 15mm thick. And the biggest of them all the Nokia with a giant 100 megapixel lens at 20mm thick and 20 pounds. You are going to love the Samesung after you see these monstrosities lol

No front stereo speakers, no fm radio, bigger chassis than gnote 2...? Ah, I'll stick with my gnote 2. Some suggestion to, importing the back design of sgs4 active and the two capacitive button you can transform it to 2 square physical ( bit rounded )button and reduce the length of home button (center), and add that I mention above. For me that's the best deal, never mind those saying "cheap plastic", they just envy and have plastic mind

And we hope the men'ry storage must be min of 32 gig, the 16 gig is for mid range phone as of 2013.

Hey remix, how are you doing! ? You didn't know me and I'm new here, but since my Android world ( tmo g2) I've always visiting this site to find what's new and the comment section. I didn't read any comment from you since upgrading your samsung s to nexus 4, it's time for giant phone. The oem are crazy making these kind of smartphones, and people following this trend, what a crazy world, ha!?

Why isn't there a red thumb in the whole 80 comments despite a large number of samsung hatters on the forum?
