Latest specs for Samsung Galaxy Note III show phablet will have 2.5GB of RAM
Serial leaker evleaks sent out a tweet showing the About Device Screen for the SM-N9005, which is the version of the Samsung Galaxy Note III that offers LTE connectivity. In the tweet, evleaks also posted an AnTuTu benchmark score for the phablet, which will run Android 4.3. According to the tweet, a quad-core processor is under the hood (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800?), and unlike previous reports that said to expect 3GB of RAM on the handset, evleaks says that the Samsung Galaxy Note III will sport 2.5GB of the stuff. The screen's resolution will be 1080 x 1920, also known as FHD.

Update: 2.5GB of RAM might be just what the system reports, while the actual total amount of RAM on the Galaxy Note III could still be 3GB as we've heard about previously.

The buzz around the water cooler is that one of the two Galaxy Note III models will have an AMOLED screen with a 13MP camera while the cheaper variant will have LCD glass and an 8MP rear shooter. Both variants will have a 5.68 inch display and will offer the same S Pen features seen on the first two models of the Galaxy Note.

On Wednesday, Samsung will introduce the Samsung Galaxy Note III along with the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Also on September 4th, we should see Sony unveil the Sony Xperia Z1 and the Smart Shot interchangeable camera lens. There is also the new ASUS Transformer Pad set for introduction on September 4th, so keep your eyes right here for the latest news on the devices that you care about.

What? All Qualcomm does is make the chips, they have no say in what goes on the phone.

The bootloader being locked is the manufacturer and carrier's decision.

Thats something worth thinking about when the phone reveals itself on wednesday!! I like what I see, but my only concern is the design.

I love Amoled screens BUT... They're almost useless outside. I with they had an LCD 3 version, same resolution, and a 13 MP shooter. That would be cool.

Am I the only one that's able to read their screen even with auto brightness on? AMOLED > other.

Yes, apparently. AMOLED vs. LCD = preference ;)

yeah i think they need to own an S4, its alot easier to see in sunlight compared to the S3, set in auto brightness of course.

Nope never really had issues myself ..do live in the UK so could be that..I guess if you live in a place where its sunny a lot of the time then I guess its an issue.

s3 had poor brightness but the amoled in s4 is much better.

2.5GB's is acceptable, howeverwhoot, I would like to see a 32GB or even a 64GB iteration. Some of us are not "the average" and 16GB onboard (10GB usable) is just not enough even with a 64GB Memory Card. Speaking of which, where art the 128GB MicroSD cards?? I was down to about 500MB of internal memory until I disabled "thumbnail preview" in MXVideo Player and I'm down to about 5GB on my 64GB card: somebody help!!! Samsung aren't you listening to us, don't iPersecute us like that other OEM!!??

Samsung listens to the sound of their customers pouring money into their pockets.

Your confusing RAM with Disk Space.

Hardly, I know all about RAM, I just need more on-board and external memory. But, I can see how the reading impaired might incorrectly infer my comment; perhaps I should have wriiten, "I would like to see a 32GB or even a 64GB internal storage iteration in addition to the minor increase in RAM." So, there you have it: for the reading impaired.

eh 3gb would have been more exciting, but 2.5 is still better than the rest of the 2gb ram flagships out there. can't wait to see it announced!

Stop with the half gigabytes. Either put in 2 or 3.

Posts: 3723; Member since: Aug 16, 2011

So... you'd really rather have 2 GB instead of 2.5...?

Yep I would.

2GB is enough for my needs.. plus i will be rooting and taking off some samsung crap that i wont be using that just eats up ram and runs around

This. Rooting and installing DSP Manager is a must. The best equalizer I've ever seen that's 3x better than Beats Audio. High speed 2.5GB of RAM is fine. The more the better. :)

DDR3 ram? im sure 2.5GB or ram still good for now..should of went to 3GB or ram just to be on the safe side when key lime pie 5.0 comes out.. apps are getting bigger due to CPU power/HD content now that super phones are full 1080p screens.. but yeah ROOTING is a must for me..not a fan of carrier crap/samsung crap ware.. well i do like some samsung stuff.. we will find out in a day or two...cant wait

Why would you need 3 GB of RAM to be safe for KLP? KLP is expected to be a very memory efficient evolution of Android, being able to run smoothly on devices with only 512 MB of RAM. Do you really think you would need 6 times that amount? Even if KLP isn't that memory efficient, 2 GB of RAM is more than enough. Some relatively good Windows laptops only had 2 GB of RAM a couple years ago, I had one, and it was running a full desktop OS pretty smoothly.

yeah that might be true you might be right.. plus this 2.5GB ram is maybe due to android using up some ram already from 3GB.. 512mb of ram dont cut it now a days lol.. will have to wait and see
