Default Rumors

Of the three alleged prototypes, the source says there is one with a design inspired by the GALAXY S 4 flagship handset, another with a completely new design (breath of fresh air and all that), and a third that features a flexible display, which is the one that sounds most intriguing. The prototype that draws its design from the S 4 is featured in the concept above.

Different rumors have been popping up lately regarding the Galaxy Note 3, such as one that hit the Web a few weeks ago claiming the device will sport a new design, which is what one of the three prototypes at Samsung are rumored to have. Specifically, word has it the design will utilize metal in the place of plastic. Such a claim automatically brings one around to thoughts of the HTC One.

The rumored new design and GALAXY S 4-inspired design aside, the third concerning a flexible display design is the most interesting of the three. This seems to match up with a rumor we heard earlier this month that the Note 3 will feature a super-durable plastic display that is harder to crack than current offerings. For now, all remain the stuff of rumors, but if one of them proves to be true, we’ll know in September when it is believed Samsung will launch the device. - Slashgear




I've been waiting forever for this phone.

I am pretty excited for this to come out. I really like the GN2 and fully plan to grab a pre order the GN3 as soon as all the size and spec info is out......

I thought I saw a picture of the one that was constructed out of metal, but can't seem to find the picture of it now....that would be great, to me any how. The plastic material of the current GN2 has been holding up well, but I wonder if metal would be better? Or would it dent to easily.

I think I remember reading that the pics posted have been hoaxes. Whichever it will be, metal or plastic, I'll have it in a case and won't notice anyway.

I saw a "picture" of a possible GN3 that had what appears to be a display of sorts, that is visible when the device is looked at from the side. A type of "crawler" display? Looks interesting.

Speculation is it will be announced at the IFA Berlin in September. Hopefully it will hit the street not long after that.

Yeah I thought there would be no chance of flexible screens this year. I can see it next year though.

I can't upgrade until 2014 either but I'm getting this phone when it comes out. I'll pay full price or pay the early upgrade to get it.

Alleged picture taken with the Samsung Galaxy Note III



The detail looks sharp but seems kind of washed out. Maybe just angle of the sun.

Well, for the spec wise I definitely want Note 3 since I am able to get a Note 2 right now. I don't think flexible display will come out this year, not even next year. It is ready for prototype but not for consumer yet.

Dang, really? ^

Makes me want to get away from Samsung.. at least for a while.

Eyeballing the HTC stuff lately.

Not to say the Note 2 isn't great (and the coming Note 3, probably).. it is. Just growing weary of same ole same ole I guess.

I really don't care that much if its plastic. I keep my phones in a case anyway and I figure at least the plastic won't bend and is cheaper to replace.

I was thinking about how Samsung fit the 5.0 screen into a smaller overall form factor for the S4, than the S3, and realized that the jump was only .2 higher from the S3. All of the rumors about the Note 3 following the same/similar train of thought are a little off base in comparison, as the jump would be double of what was done with screen size between the S3 and S4.

Note 2 is really borderline for me, as far as overall comfort level due to physical size. I'm not willing to risk comfortability, just for screen size.

With the recent falling out at HTC and the shrinking market share, it looks like my next phone will be the note3 when it comes out. And that, isn't a rumor at all. lol

I would go to the note2 but my evo 4g LTE isn't that dated yet and with the new note right around the corner I can wait for it. I think the One is going to be a big flop.

I've had bad luck with samsung in the past but it looks like they hopefully have the issues worked out...

I'm not surprised about the info at HTC. There had to be a lot of butting heads, based on the direction and approach they've taken the past couple years.

Just to calm your anxiety about Samsung a little, I was a diehard HTC guy, until the EVO 3D was released. At that point, I gave Motorola a shot (w/ their 1st Sprint superphone). That was a great experience, until Motorola started moving in the wrong direction (and prior to Google really being able to influence the mindset). I, much like you, had my share of issues with Samsung (along with many of my friends and family), so I was a little anxious when I was considering the Note 2. I've got to say that, since they started making great amounts of money from the S2, their support has improved tremendously in the US. The Note 2 is reaping all the benefits from that, so the Note 3 shouldn't be any different.

Yeah it looks like Samsung is becoming the apple of the android world. I know several people with s3's and s4's and a few with note2's and none complain. I don't know any that root their phones but that should only make it better. The one thing that is really turning me is the beautiful screen on the notes. I'm a big guy and I don't think I'll have any problem handling a big phone. I don't know why people that have a problem with the form factor don't just invest in a good blue tooth headset anyway.

I'm looking forward to these phones when they come out. HTC has been good to me but I'm ready for something different. I don't think there's anything on the market but Samsung that I would bother with.

I'm not a big guy (5'6) and my hands are average size for my height, but the Note 2 is just at the border in comfort level for me. Had the Note 2 been wider than the Note 1, I might not have gotten the phone. The form factor on the Note 2 was what swayed me the most, to give it a shot. I have to say for sure that this would be my limit. The Note 3 is only a consideration, if they somehow squeeze that 6 inch screen into the current (or smaller) physical form. I wouldn't even mind slightly additional height, as long as the width is the same. I have a lot of great bluetooth accessories, but it's not enough for me to feel comfortable holding my phone (I text and email more than I make actual calls).

LG has made a really strong comeback. Many people were singing the same tune about LG, as they used to about Samsung. With the popularity of the Optimus G and the Nexus 4, they might be on a swing similar to Samsung after the S2 popularity.

I'm 6'4 and ride on a large frame. From the tip of my thumb to my middle finger is about 7.5". The bigger phones are harder to hold on to but they seem to make sense for my hands. These phones are all about the screen so I think the note just may be the perfect phone for me. I'm just hoping the hardware is up to snuff. If it comes as rumored I think I'll be happy.

My brother has an N4 and he likes it but I'm pretty much limited to Sprint right now. I have 4 phones on my account and it works out a little cheaper being on Sprint for me. Plus they are working pretty steady on the vision upgrades around here and about 1/3 of my medium sized town has active LTE now. I'll stick around until they start jacking up the price and limiting data, but I am purchasing all of my phones outright. The last contract on my account expired last month and we can jam if we need to at any time.

I know LG isn't the same as they used to be a long time ago but I would still be worried buying a phone made by goldstar if you know what I mean...

I hope the CPU makes it on the USA version. Since its a Snapdragon and works with LTE I don't see why it wouldn't.

Glad I still love the Note 2, so I'm not antsy about waiting another 5-6 months until the Note 3 is released officially.

If the Galaxy Mega 5.8 or 6.3 are any indicators of the form factor that we'll be seeing on the Note 3, I'm likely sticking with the Note 2. The 5.8 alone adds so much additional height, that's there's no way I could handle using that phone 1 handed.

I went and played with a note2 the other day and with the phone in my palm I can get my thumb 1/2" from my ring finger in front of the phone. Like I said, I have pretty big hands.

Like everything else, they made a big phone that sold a lot so they'll keep making them bigger and bigger until they quit selling. I want to say though that 6" is about the perfect size for a phone screen. Any bigger than that and they're really in tablet territory.

In order for US versions to get Exynos processor, two conditions should be met in my view.

The first is compatibility with qualcomm LTE radio. This has been the main reason why US GS3 didn't get Exynos as Samsung didn't resolve that issue by early summer last year. But fortunately they got that solved before releasing Note 2 last year. LTE compatibility is no longer issue for Exynos.

The second is volume production of Exynos for enough supply to each market. Although Note line is most successful phablet, it's still smaller volume than GS series phones. So Note 2 US versions could come with it unlike GS3 US versions.

The reason why GS4 US versions didn't get Exynos Octa is the production issue with Exynos octa according to Samsung. As for Note 3, it's not clear yet. But we should expect snapdragon 800 at least, which is not bad at all.

If it goes on sale in July I'm sure you can still get it in September.

Haha true. I knew you were going to say that. I still don't believe this rumor though. J.K. Shin said it himself that the Note 3 will be announced at Sept.......unless that's a rumor too. Lol

i don't think it will be released before september (ifa). that digitimes article doesn't cite any sort of source at all.

how does the exynos octa match up against the snapdragon800? that rumored htc phone could be serious competition for the note 3.

Samsung website confirms Galaxy Note III (SM-N9000)



Samsung won't officially confirm the confirmation so we still have the rumors thread.

I'm very intrigued about the Note 3. There are only a few factors that will play into my actually getting it 1) If my relative truly wants my Note 2, 2) If it physically isn't larger than the Note 2 (or at least not significant enough for it to be uncomfortable for me to hold), and 3) If I want to pay the off contract price.

I'm looking forward to seeing it formally announced, but am still completely content in keeping my Note 2.

I hear that Snapdragon 800 is going to be a beast. I also read that Samsung may drop Exynos and just stick to the Snapdragon processors.

I haven't had a snapdragon processor in quite some time, but really trust the advancements that Qualcomm has made through the years, so I wouldn't mind that at all. Not that I've been unhappy with the Exynos processor because it works just fine, but I've heard great things about the 800 also, since after all the phones with 600 processors had been released.

Ultimately, whichever processor make the smartphone experience just as great after loads of apps and cache has been built up...that will be the processor I prefer the most (and this is all without rooting).

Where did you read that? It may be so here in US. But I don't think Samsung will ditch Exynos altogether after all that R&D and investment into its manufacturing.

I should have been more specific. I meant for the U.S. versions. Although, the Note 2 had Exynos on our versions as well.
