Samsung Galaxy Note III may come in multiple sizes

Samsung Galaxy Note III may come in multiple sizes
We have been having trouble sorting through the rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note III, because original reports had the device launching with a 6-inch display, while more recent reports have been saying it will be a 5.7-inch display. It turns out that both may be right, because the new theory is that the Note III will launch in multiple sizes.

Indian import/export database Zauba, which also recently listed a possible 12.2-inch tablet from Samsung, has multiple listings for the Samsung Galaxy Note III, but the interesting thing is that the site lists different models of the Note III as having either 5.5-inch, 5.7-inch, or 6-inch displays. The only hitch is that the listings mark all of the models as either "for R&D purpose" or "for testing & evaluation & not for retail sale". 

This could either indicate that Samsung is still testing different prototypes and hasn't yet chosen a final size for the Note III, or it could mean that there will be multiple sizes for the device. 

If there will be various sizes, which one would you choose?

Will launch with 4.3 Jelly Bean while the S4 will get it in 4 months, the S3 in 6 months, and the S2 right before the sun turns into a red giant. Thank goodness for Nexii.

Samsung is Confusing people with their Galaxy Series. Different Names - Same Design - Little Specification variation.

For something you haven't even seen and from photos which are likely to be doctored or faked. Haters gonna hate.

So tell me more about the new all-metal design of Note III. Oh, snap! There is no such new design. Except for the metal rim that you Sammy boys enjoy on every single galaxy. From Galaxy Y to Galaxy S4, it's all same. Ugly plastic and 3 buttons. Enjoy convincing yourself that the leaked photos are faked. :)

The Note 3 isn't meant to change the design cycle, we are only kidding ourselves if we thought that. The S series is the defining flagship name. Your argument is a recycled one and the person who thumbed you up is obviously an individual with a serious case of inferiority complex against Samsung. ''Ugly Cheap Plastic.....'' I mean, seriously, be original. I could spew the same old rubbish about Sony/Nokia/HTC and LG in their articles and troll all I like, but there isn't a need to because we all choose what we like and competition is a good thing but also, because I use Apple/Samsung/Nokia etc and don't have a preference for whichever brand. Whomever delivers the best experience gets my money, simple as. Reality is fanboys will always shoot down Samsung at whatever chance they get because Samsung, simple as, is the big star and is like Apple, easy to hate because of their popularity. It isn't just about the build quality of Samsung, it is because every fanboy has an underdog mentality, verbally attack the one who is at the top whilst their brand of choice simply isn't good enough to dethrone the reigning champion and doesn't get the attention of what is in their mind is a superior product, but let's face it, is but isn't really attracting the attention of millions of consumers voting with their wallet. I mean, Samsung isn't perfect but to me, they're really the only ones that are actually trying to think outside of the box and not try to improve in one area, they research the market for 10 years ahead. When Samsung does adapt Carbon Fibre build for design 3.0 for the S5, fanboys will still say ''Looks cheap'' and not realise what the hell Carbon Fibre is in their ignorant un-informed mind.

Wow! How do people like you get some hung up on designs? Anybody in their right minds would take performance and features over designs any day. Most people including myself put a case on our phones anyway, so what's the point of being so concerned with the design.

I'll take that ugly with a side of great battery life and sd card expansion slot, hold the uni-body design because I like to be able to replace my battery at will.

Agreed! We've seen Samsung create s series mini versions, why not a Samsung Galaxy Note III mini version.

Just like Samsung has the Galax Tab (lower end) series tablets along with the Note tablets (premium), there is the Galaxy Mega (low end) and the Note phablet (premium).

different sized screens for different global markets? ( 5.7" for UK, 5.7" and 6.0" for US...)
