With the Samsung Galaxy Note III ready to be introduced on Wednesday, a published report on Sunday shows off a photo of the next iteration of Samsung's 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. The bezels are said to be thinner on the new model...

That's how phablets look like. No need to laugh about it.
The Apple iBoon still remains on 4 inch, and it's damn long for a small phone like that. Apple will never grow up.

I doubt that's Note 3, the side bezel is too large and it's way too thick.

Not bad! Looks like a combination of the Galaxy S4 and Note 1 with a premium look on it. Not bad Samsung!

If samsung had half a brain they'd announce two models - one running android and another featuring Windows Phone.

Yes this is a beast and i will definitely get it on day 1.
This will be the best non compromise phone to date which will overtake my Note 2.

For all those who trash plastic, I have news for you
-plastic is lighter and in this phablet space, you want to carry as light as possible
-plastic is quicker and cheaper to produce
-dropping will cause less damage ie f=ma
-plastic allow for easier manufacturing of SD card slot and removable batteries....mugen 6000mah battery as an example

Glass should be used for windows, metal should be used for cars.
Concentrate on the screen as it is where the phone shines, not the material as in most cases, I hope people use a case to protect their phone.

On a side note, I kinda wanted 5.9" full hd screen for Note3 but since using the Note2 for a year, it seem to be the perfect size for convenient of phone and tablet use. Hence, I trust Samsung in this case. Although I might buy a second phone to test out such as Pantech Vega 6 or maybe even Sony Ultra (buy why sony removing led flash and if lock up the battery, make it at least 4000mah).

I next phone upgrade would be a foldable 7" phone, ie 3.5" for phone and fold out to 7" for tablet/laptop use as per Samsung concept (check out in youtube). I just hope that HTC and Sony can catch up though as they are behind the flexible display for this to happen.

And yes, I need my GOOGLE GLASS NOW.

So, next year, if Samsung changes from plastic to aluminium for the Note 4 as it is rumoured, you will not be buying... somehow I don't think so...
Let's stop these exaggerated claims to support our beloved products or brands; the fact that it is easier for manufacturers to produce plastic devices, or implement SD card slots is their problem. And if a metal and glass device is a bit more sensitive (actually only a bit, because plastic also gets dents and scratches, easier than glass actually), it is still much nicer to behold and use daily.

no, the point is do not compromise a phone to make it look nice by using glass or metal. If aluminum is lighter and cheaper to make then go for it i say without compromising. Remember a case will make whatever the material is irrelevant.

Forget about dents and scratches crap. If you or your friend drops your phone without a case, you are more likely to buy a new one. My advice is to buy a premium leather case period.

No fanboy but pro technology.

My tech need was mainly driven mainly the screen size starting with
-xda k-jam then
-O2 flame 3.5"
-then HTC HD2 4.3"
-then Dell Streak 5"
-then Note 1 5.3"
-current Note 2 5.5"
-soon to be Note 3 and/or Pantech Vega 6 and/or Sony Ultra. Note 3 seem be the way to go though but I am still not sure if 5.7" is my sweet spot.

You should feel right at home with the iphone 5s; it will look exactly the same.

I think this is fake. If you zoom in on the first pic u can see the bezel is much thicker than the one on the leaked front panel image. Still if the real one has a similar design but thinner I think it's gonna be pretty sexy.

Looks too fake. I'd be surprised if this was the final design. I personally like the more rounded design because it helps it slip in and out of pockets much easier than pointy phones. As far as the plastic design, that's another thing I like better, so I'm happy about that. As long as it has a removable battery and a microSD card, I'm buying immediately. It's the only phone that will sway me from the Note II.
