Latest rumored specs for the Samsung GALAXY Note III include 3GB of RAM
posted by Alan F. / Apr 28, 2013, 10:37 AM
China's MyDrivers has a picture showing the Samsung GALAXY Note II alongside a device that allegedly is the Samsung GALAXY Note III. Based on our chart (see below), the pictured device doesn't swamp the Samsung GALAXY Note II like the Samsung Galaxy Mega series does. But the model number that is printed with the device, GT-i9500, is the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4, which the device in the picture clearly is not. So we are skeptical about the photo, and continue to wonder whether the Korean OEM will be releasing the model using a different material other than plastic.
If the Samsung GALAXY Note III is released with these specs, is everybody happy with it?

You don't use 3g worth on a device. You'd have to have 5 browers open at once, notes, email, 5 games, and a lot more. Android manages RAM in a very unique way that is both good for battery life, overheating, and so on. If my phone was using 3g's worth, i'd be concerned. That's a lot of memory and it means you should get off your phone and go do something outside.

They are, in my opinion, trying to make it a desktop replacement. Where you can bluetooth a mouth and keyboard and hook it up to a monitor and use it that way. It is possible with the note II but the amount of RAM made it a bit boggy at times.

Yeah it's definitely not needed at this point. But this seems to be Samsung's way. Rather than tightly develop their software they just throw big hardware at the problem. Not really sure why they may feel 3GB of ram is needed.

All products that use ram, can never have enough. If you want to keep your Note 3 for just two years 3 gb of ram will probably start showing its age. Ram is generally the cheapest way to increase speed in just about any device so more is better. Arguing to the opposite seems silly. What do you care? That extra ram chip didn't raise the price of the phone, it only helps speed up the phone and helps it maintain it's speed long term too. "640K ought to be enough for anybody" ya, how'd that work out Uncle Willy? One of the richest, smartest men in the world, ever said that lol

Just state your opinion. Neither do you have to explain yourself nor bother about people downvoting your comments. Regarding the topic, it's all about pushing the boundaries. Remember the time when people thought 720p displays on smartphones was overkill? Fast-forward two years and now we have got 1080p displays! Of course, RAM cannot be compared with displays but still there won't be a saturation point for RAM unlike the resolution of displays on smartphones.

Let me explain why I ( tech guy) need/want more more ram Widgets, on my phone I have at least 1 widget on each home screen but I want to have at least 2 but can't because the phone will lag Live wallpaper, yes I love my live wallpapers Small muititasking, Now let me explain why my little sister (non tech HS girl) needs more ram than me. She has over 14 widgets on her SGS4, and a live one direction wallpaper. Phone runs smooth only because she loves to swipe to exit task. With more ram I can get even better widgets, I love widgets and so do HS GIrls
