As long as the bezel is very small, the Note 3 would only need to be a tiny bit larger than a Note 2 to fit a 6.3" screen.

"how to put it in our pockets?" With 1080p resolution and some work on packaging, it might be possible to fit a 6-inch diagonal screen in the present Note II footprint. We will find out what Sammy has done in September, though.

Make no mistake people. The Note III is the going to be the best phone of 2013. It doesn't matter how you feel about Android, IPhone, WP8, Blackberry, Ubuntu, etc. I had a galaxy nexus last year and looked at the Note 1 as something I could never own cause of the size. It really intimidated me with its size. But then Samsung released the Note 2 last October. I felt the same way about the size at the time. But the specs. Oh the specs. Quad exynos with LTE, 5.5 inch Non pentile screen, removable 3100 mah battery and sd card. Unheard of at the time. Bought it in October at T-Mobile. Even if you spend a hour messing with the phone. You'll never understand how boss the Note 2 is till you have it. It's for this experience, why I have to have the Note 3. Samsung just gets what people want.

Don't know why you got the negative votes. I am waiting for the Note III to drop on VZW. The most frustrating thing about the Note III will be how long I have to wait for it to become available on VZW. My Note II is the best phone I have had to date.

I've owned two Note II devices (AT&T and International), and while they are the best phones Samsung has ever made, and easier to hold than the Note I was, I was not completely impressed. TouchWiz is a bloated, ugly mess and the build quality was poor. Before you say "you could root it and get rid of TW," I did so and was extremely disappointed. There are, in the same way that affects the S3, no truly great ROMS for Galaxy devices because Samsung withholds sources. So, to sum, you can use the garish mess that is TW, or you can ROM and get a half-assed camera and kernel implementation because Sammy doesn't provide the necessary source code. Call me when Samsung offers a well-built phone that doesn't suffer from cracks on the corners from ordinary use and offers stock Android.

September???? That's a long time from now. The note 3 will be one of the greatest phones released this year. I'm waiting for it.

Everyone already know how it will look like. A bigger Galaxy S4, and also in plastic as usual Meh... Just a bigger Galaxy S4 with S pen support, most likely of the same specs except screen size of course. The predictability doesnt make it exciting anymore.

Dear Samsung. .we probably know That d note3 will be armed to the teeth with a high end processor Like snapdragon 800 or one of ur own top of d line exynos series, 3gb(if possible higher) ddr3 ram..a rich 1080p display..a plethora of software features,n an improved s pen . But please make the note 3 a bit different than the note 2 Dnt repeat this mistake which u made with designing d s4.. And try to get rid of the flimsy plastic back cover.. We would be ever so grateful. . Yours sincerely ( a very happy note2 owner )
