Samsung Galaxy Note III leaks, shows less rounded corners

Samsung Galaxy Note III leaks, shows less rounded corners
With the Samsung Galaxy Note III ready to be introduced on Wednesday, a published report on Sunday shows off a photo of the phablet. While this is not the best quality shot, we can still tell that the corners are less rounded than the ones on the Samsung GALAXY Note II While we can't tell this from the picture taken, or the close-up, the bezels are said to be thinner on the new model.

The Samsung Galaxy Note III is getting birthed into a market with some competition for the phablet from the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and its industry leading 6.4 inch screen. The eagerly awaited HTC One Max takes the popular design of the HTC One and blows it up to phablet size. HTC hasn't introduced the model yet, but information about the unit has leaked, including word that the phone will contain a fingerprint scanner.

If you can hold on until Wednesday, you will see exactly what Samsung has in mind for its next phablet. Let's say that this is the actual model. How do those squarer corners make you feel?

Thanks Anonymous Tipster!

Back to the GSII design. I like this better than sa GSIII and IV. That's why I admire Sony's brick design.

"what to do with my 2 G-Note 2's??" Been thinking the same thought myself. The Note 2 isn't exactly obsolete. Yeah, there is the matter of upgraded hardware, but it may not be that much of an upgrade (especially if no OIS for the camera). I am thinking of selling my RX100 and buying an RX100 Mark II for the WiFi pic transfer and improved low light capability.

Okay but, what would you do with the second RX100? And, are you saying (or not) that your ORIGINAL RX100 got "Lost/Stolen" on, say, a city bus?? Because if that's what you're saying, maybe (I'm not saying definitely but, "hypothetically"), the same thing happened to me [allegedly] ?ยก?

Will Apple sue them again though? Samsung got in trouble with the SII if I remember correctly. Otherwise, sleek design, but I expected something fresher from Samsung.

Apple will sue them no matter what they do. They invented the smartphone, you know. Next year they're going to invent the TV.

Well IBM invented the smartphone but I digress. Apple are known for being patent trolls for sure. Soon we might have to call them Granny Smith Apple the way their innovating nowadays.

Didn't the patent that Apple relied upon for the suit against the SII get invalidated? If so, its gonna be a pretty hard lift for Apple to prevail - even with the friends Apple has in high places. Once a patent gets invalidated, it is really hard to get it re-instated.

Why does it look too thick??

Perhaps some type of prototype.

And i dont like this one.. Yah it looks good but uhhh this is something like Xperia Z and Ultra with overflowing inferior ergonomics.. If you want to enjoy the note's superior productivity, well at least it must not be uncomfortable to hold.

This looks good. Might choose this over the Z1 of course chance that the Z1 coming to Sprint is already very slim...
