Samsung Galaxy Note III gets GCF certification, proves global LTE version is coming

Samsung Galaxy Note III gets GCF certification, proves global LTE version is coming
With September 4th creeping up on us like a professional sniper on a mission, the Samsung Galaxy Note III turned up in the Global Certification Forum under the model number SM-N9005. Last month, a published report listed this version as being a global model of the Samsung Galaxy Note III that supports LTE connectivity and sports 3GB of RAM, enough to make multitaskers tremble. Based on the GCF Certification, the handset enables LTE 2100/1800/850/1600/800MHz (Bands 1,3,5,7,20), WCDMA 2100/1900/900/850MHz and GSM 1900/1800/900/850MHz connectivity.

The first 4 million units of the phablet are believed to be receiving the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor while 20% to 30% of the subsequent models will end up with the Samsung Exynos 5420 octa-core processor under the hood. Just this Sunday morning, we showed you the latest leaked photograph of the Samsung Galaxy Note III, and while the image was certainly not Hi-Res, we could still tell that the four corners on this year's iteration of the phablet are more squared off than the four corners were on last year's Samsung GALAXY Note II. In fact, the Samsung Galaxy Note III's silhouette bares more than a passing resemblance to the OG Samsung GALAXY Note.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

when they say 20-30% comes with the octa, does that mean it's 3 months away from being realeased in octa? or say 6 months? I would wait a month or 2 for it, but I don't think I could wait 3+ :/ anyone know?

Don't get the Note 3. Buy the Nokia Lumia 1520, 6 inch of pure power and class. Samsung and iPhone R.I.P.
