Last rumor(s) I heard was that the Note 3 was to have a 2Ghz quad core, possibly 3GB's of RAM and a 6.3' screen. So, basically, bigger screen and faster internals. What I'd REALLY like is for the US carriers to carry the larger capacity models. Seems like the Note 2 is selling pretty well so hopefully that'll encourage the carriers to start carrying all the models for the Note 3.

As fast as the Note 2 is selling I would not look for this anytime soon. The next Samsung big one will be this..8 core screamer..

The octa 8 isn't an 8 core cpu, since all 8 cores don't run at the same time. Only 4 do, there are 2 sets, one high power, and one low power.

Note 3 will be released in November... It's a long wait and those specs just posted are simply guesses.

I guess two quad cores (4 x 2) does no longer equal 8....thanks for the math lesson. Either way it will be fast,,,as will the note3

Yeah, I think Samsung is on an annual update cycle so we should probably see the Note 3 sometime around then. I'm not eligible for upgrade until the Note 4 so kinda eagerly anticipating what's in store for the Note 3.

I am not too sure that I would grab the GN3 if it is much bigger than the GN2. For me, the GN2 is pretty much the perfect size.....I just need to learn to use all of it's features. But size wise, it fits my hand very nicely. I am extremely happy that I gave my LTEVO to my son and went with the GN2.

The Note 3 will likely be awesome enough for me to warranty selling my Note 2 so I can buy it, contract be damned.

If the rumors are true it is sounding very nice indeed. Just a shame it wont fit in the pockets i'm guessing. The Note 2 is superb though, besides a bigger screen there's nothing that I actually need.

If the rumors hold true then I just might be tempted to sell off my Note 2 for it. Fortunately, mine's unlocked so it'll carry a premium over standard Note 2's. I guess we'll have to wait and see what the Note 3 looks like.

I think this article is purposely mistaking the Note 3, for the Note 8.0 tablet, because they're reporting that it's going to be announced at MWC...LOL...Anything for click throughs, I guess:

Give me a removable SIM on the Sprint version on the Note 3 and I'll be happy.

I think we can assume it'll be 1080p, since that's typical for 5 inch phones now.

I just hope they don't go too big w/ the Note 3. The 5'5 screen on the N2 is perfect.

Report: Samsung to launch 5.9-inch handset later this year

Looks like they may not be ready to produce flexible screens to the masses, which is okay with me, since I won't be upgrade eligible until 2014.

I'm sure I won't be carrying a larger phone in the future. If future notes are bigger I'll have to look at other phones. I use the pen often enough that I would miss it.

There are a lot of ways the note might be improved besides making it bigger. As long as the improvements preserve or improve battery life they would be welcome. A foldable or unbreakable screen would be a game changer but probably isn't feasible yet. More pen functionality or making it's functions open source would be great. Storage will probably get cheaper. More of that never hurts. There are things that don't work great, like the screen brightness adjustment. The phone doesn't transition easily between thumb and bluetooth keyboards. There could be better battery charging management by allowing user selectable voltage limits to preserve the battery on days when a full charge won't be needed. Most decent digital cameras have presets. How about user creatable preset widgets. The potential of speech recognition is hardly touched because the players can't figure out how to charge us for it. The processors could probably have special processing for speech the same as they do for graphics. The possibilities are endless. The things I probably won't go for are a bigger device or higher price.

I don't see anything in the new note 3 that will make me stick with Samsung. I love my note 2 but its big enough - anything larger is too big as a pocket phone.

Theres a lot of up and coming devices and manufacturers catching up rapidly with top spec devices. Blurring a phablet and a tablet will not keep Note customers with Sammy IMHO.

As much as I love the 5.5" screen I could go bigger and be just fine with that too. People have been using 7" tablets as phones for a long time now so I think size is a state of mind.
I've lost count of how many "I'd never" posts I've read only for the same people to now say 5.5" is perfect. They'll say the same thing if Samsung actually does do 5.9.

It all comes down to the overall physical size, not necessarily the screen, for me. I'd have been perfectly content with a 4.7 or 4.8, but after the Note 2 slimmed down the overall physical attributes from the 1st generation, that's where it seemed more realistic for me to get it.

Question for you- doesn't physical & screen go hand in hand?

Not necessarily. For instance, back in the 4.3 inch screen days, there were plenty of OEM's that made overal physical dimensions smaller than the original EVO.

In the same manner, take the 4.7/4.8 standard. Overall physical dimensions are different from each of the OEM's.

I have an upgrade in June coming from Droid Razr. Should I wait until the Note 3 or get the Note 2? I really want the Note 2 bad, but am scared that after I upgrade and the Note 3 gets announced in Sept that's it's going be off the charts..

If you are a person that will upgrade, even if you're not upgrade eligible, by paying full cost of a phone...no reason to hesitate on purchasing the Note 2.

That said, if you only plan on upgrading now and then waiting until your next upgrade eligible date, then I would hold out until the Note 3 is formally announced and released (assuming your current phone could last you that long without problems). Your advantage here would be 1) You'd see all of the superphones announced for the entire year, 2) When the Note 3 is released, if there are any parts of it that you don't like, you can likely get a Note 2 for an extremely great deal (possibly even free). Even if the Note 2 would already be 1 year old, the specs on it are definitely good for 2 years (minimum). At that point, it would only be 1 year old and you'd have the advantage of choosing which phone would suit your needs the best.

Seems like way too much bezel to be the Note 3. If it does end up being the Note 3, I'm not so sure I'd jump ship to upgrade

?Galaxy Note 3-Galaxy Note 3,,,,Android 4.2,5.9,1080p-?

Rumor: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Appears Online | Ubergizmo

Now, if that's a tester model, shrink that bottom bezel at the bottom (there's a lot more room than the Note 2), and I could see them squeezing the 5.9 inch screen into very close physical form to the Note 2. At that point, it would definitely have my attention. And considering the plastic screen that's being rumored, I'd be very intrigued to see how that plays into designing the physical dimensions.

I don't think that's the Note 3. I can't see Samsung making the phone that much bigger. With the S4 they have a smaller body than the S3 with a bigger screen. Seems logical they'd try to do that with the Note 3.

Word has it (translation: Rumour) that there are actually 3 design versions of the Note 3. One (same as always) Plastic and looking like the S3/4, one non-plastic aluminium design and one plastic not looking like the S3/4 design with flexible screen or is it body.

Either way, the pic above if true seems to be the plastic s3/s4 design version.

For me, the whole plastic screen (at 720p resolution based on latest rumor) is an answer to a question that no one asked!

I much rather have a screen technology to prevent scratching altogether than an unbreakable screen that can still be scratched (at possibly at a sub-par resolution to everyone else). Gorrilla Glass has been fine in terms of strength...but we need better scratch resistance!

And yeah, if Note 3 is THAT much bigger (as in pic above), then it is too big IMHO...and i may have to go to something else!

Well if its that big then I don't need to get a Note 8.0, at least this new one would have phone capabilities. lol

Now if anyone makes fun of me calling someone on that Note 3, I'll just hit them with it.

That's my hope. I wont' have a problem considering the Note 3, if they manage to squeeze the 5.9 screen into as close to the current body styling as possible.

I would not mind seeing 3 versions (although, I don't anticipate that happening, just because of costs). Ultimately, my main intent is to wait it out until they finally release the phone like they had in that mock-up commercial! As soon as that comes out, I'll be set.

I think he meant 3 Prototypes. I read somewhere that that pic is not real and not one of the rumored prototypes. I'm not worried.

Hmmm... That kind of thinking would make someone with buyers remorse return the Note 8 then wait around another 4 months just to see what Samsung unveils.

I don't believe that's the next Note. As Mr Ed has shown us, nothing is final until it's final. It would not be out of character for Samsung to have plenty of prototypes if for no other reason than leaks/rumors.

I hope not. Aluminum dings and scratches too easily unless hard anodized, but HA3 (the hardest) is an ugly and blotchy greenish gray color.

Now if they did go for a metal body, titanium would be great - but expensive. Also expensive but probably very nice would be steel covered in leather.
Brushed stainless steel would cost more but hold up better than aluminum.
